    This isn't a TiVo issue, but this is one of the best group of people for tech questions I've come across, so I'll post here.

    My home router has been crapping out on occasion, so I'm guessing it may soon be time to replace it. I do have Ubiqiti Wi-Fi access points located in my apartment, so I do NOT need a router with Wi-Fi capabilities. I just want a good router that has strong security and other features, but without wi-fi. I don't need a lot of ports, as I've got 8 Port GigE switches already in the mix. My current Comcast download speed is in the 150-200 MBps range, so GigE ports are needed. I'd love to hear suggestions.

    All my Netgear routers have the ability to disable their transceivers. Find something cheap on Amazon or eBay.

    As such, for the R8300 wirelessoff.png

    So you're looking for a cable modem?

    No, not looking for a cablemodem... just a really good router that doesn't include the cost of wi-fi circuitry.

    Ubiquiti ER-X?

    (And I’ve got a USG-3 around if interested in that)

    For non-Wifi routers, I would suggest either the Ubiquity EdgeRouter(X, 3lite or 4) or the Mikrotik RB750gr3. The Mikrotik will be the most configurable but it does require some networking knowledge to configure. The Edgerouter X will be the cheapest, the other EdgeRouters will cost more and give better performance, but all are easy to configure. I personally went with the Mikrotik.

    Thanks... I'm pretty sure I'll go with one of these... My current router hasn't died, but if it craps out again, I'll pull the plug on this.
