Best router for Fizz Home Internet?

Greetings,

So, I think like most of you with Home Internet can conclude that Fizz's included modem for Home Internet has really really bad Wi-Fi. I read that some of you ended up connecting your own router to it to get better Wi-Fi.

I'm no expert in networking, so I was wondering if anyone can recommend me some good routers that will allow me to get best speed possible? I got the 60 mbps plan at the moment. I aim to upgrade to 120 if it comes back in the near future, so I would want a router that can support that.

Thanks!

It may not be the router that's the issue, you may want to get some range extenders for the weak signal areas. You should also not expect max speeds from wifi.

Sometimes, the speed would be very slow or the Wi-Fi is not detected even though my devices are like 2 meters away from the modem. So, I do not believe it's a range-related issue.

Any decent router that supports AC should do the trick, I bought a refurbished Asus RT-AC68U and am getting great speeds and coverage on both 5 and 2.4 ghz.

Well... currently debating if I should get one of those mesh wifi setups (Google Wi-Fi) or buy a router.

If your issue is the wifi signal, u dont need a router, u need an AccessPoint or a couple of them (Deppent of your place). Decent price/quality ASUS, TP-link is building abordable and not bad AP devices. But like a pro u can use Ubiquity (No regrets at all)

just unscrew the bottom of your device you will see a gear looking like a clock turn it one quarter and a half to the left you willl be able to enjoy faster internet for a fraction of the price as you can use every ethernet cable to launch your beta internet good luck :)

Been getting a couple of new replies lately. So, for those who are interested, I ended up getting Google WiFi and it fixed all of the issues I've had.

Hope that helps~
