Thanks again for input.

I've always built my own PCs but I'll tell ya, networking is not my long suit.

Here's where I'm at now and recommendations are GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Either of these. The extra 40 buck or so for the AC66U is not an issue. This router advertises 256m ram, I didn't see what the RT router has. But, I don't have any fancy computers, but I sure to have plenty of activity all at once.

I have an old modem that has never failed from the phone co. DSL So, I don't know if that's a speed issue .. I'm guessing not.
Anyway, 2 or 3 wireless laptops ... and Ipod, an Asus tablet, 2 wired PCs,

Any number of these could be going at the same time.

But I don't know about the N standard or the AC standard .. I only want to get the most reliable for the things in our house.

Asus RT-AC66U $188

Asus RT-N66u $148

OR ... who knows .... anything you recommend better than these!

What do you guys recommend for me? Reliability, ease of setup (cause I am network terminology challenged )

I'll order as soon as I can figure out the best most reliable bet for me.

thanks so much!
