I literally have zero knowledge in router, wireless and networking. Currently looking for a replacement of my broken one. Here are the options based on some research and the price, but I don't know:
1. Asus RT-AC1200G+ https://www.asus.com/Networking/RT-AC1200G-plus/
2. Asus RT-AC58U https://www.asus.com/Networking/RT-AC58U/
3. Asus RT-AC68U https://www.asus.com/Networking/RTAC68U/
What are the differences?
Any other good recommendation? I like Linksys, but is it getting too expensive these days? Brand availability where I live: Asus, Linksys, Tenda, Belkin, TPLink, DLink, Netgear.
My bandwith is maxed at 30Mbps, with medium sized house. Will I get benefit from using AC routers or more expensive routers? or should I get cheaper non AC one?
Usage: around 6 smartphones, 1 tablets, 1 laptop, and 1 PC.
For youtube, downloading games and movies, steam, torrent, etc.
My PC is on the 2nd floor, router on 1st floor, with my previous cheap router (no physical antennas, 7-8m/22-26ft direct line between router and PC) I got fair-med signal, and the further room on 2nd floor is hardly receiving any signal. Will antennas help?
I am no expert in networking, so plug and play please.
Thank you in advance, your help is kindly appreciated.
