Router

Looking into getting a router. I am renting the cheapo one from the internet company. I don't need anything crazy but i do like to future proof myself. Mostly used for streaming Youtube and Hulu using Roku and computer. Thanks for any advice

Look at Asus routers. I have had the RT-N66R for about 4 years now and it has been very good to me. The old-style cheapie $40 routers I used before always gave me some kind of trouble. This Asus I have now has outlived a phone company DSL modem, and has gracefully accepted a switch to fiber-optic service and the new modem for that. Actually the fiber service install tech complimented me on my choice of router last year.
A link to the RT-N66U at amazon, but remember it is an older model now. https://www.amazon.com/RT-N66U-Dual-Band-Wireless-N900-Gigabit-Router/dp/B006QB1RPY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1525907349&sr=8-3&keywords=rt-n66u
And Asus' own router page. The N66U is still listed as current. I think the AC68U might be the more "modern" equivalent. https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/Wireless-Routers-Products/

The best router I have owned was this guy (https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-AC1350-Wireless-Ethernet-Router/dp/B01K1JJUNW/ref=sr_1_10?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1525887653&sr=1-10&keywords=tp+link+router)
Honestly probably a little old by now, but it does handle high traffic very well. It has 2.4 and 5 ghz bands, and decent range. It also was able to handle six users at once without major drops in speed (outside what you would expect) and latency.
Oh, also it might be sending you data to china. I never actually looked into that. But other than that it is great.
