Many friends ask what network router I would recommend.
Currently, I’m recommending the NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 Smart Dual Band WiFi Router (R6700)
If you have not replaced your router in the past 5 years, it is time to do so.
If your network router keeps dropping, there are several things that may be causing this.
What causes network router to drop out
Your router will drop out and a replacement router may be needed for many reasons
- lightning near your home or a power spike has occurred. This is the most common cause of a broken router
- Something has overheated/broken in the router. They get dusty and overheat
- you recently upgraded your connection speed and your old router can’t handle it. There are max speeds, if you go over that it could cause the router to reset itself.
- Weak signal coming in from your provider. This is getting more rare as more houses move to fiber though. If you have an older house, call your provider and have them check the wire coming into your house
