Routers are boring. Most people set them up and forget they even have one. But this Asus router is so notorious that it has a cool nickname: "The Dark Knight." And Newegg's selling them for $100 shipped.
These Asus RT-N66 routers are refurbished, which explains the $50 savings over a new one from Amazon. But it's still a very nice deal: if you aren't going with an Aironet or a Airport, this is pretty much the finest home router you can buy. It's a simultaneous dual-band router, and it casts a large, stable WiFi network.
It's the Wirecutter's pick, and from personal experience I can attest installing a premium router completely upgraded my home network—it stopped crashing, and I started getting vastly superior speeds.
Don't forget to plug in the code EMCXPXN87. Limit 15 per customer. [Newegg]
