Can I get some suggestions? My Apple Airport is presently working as a router, but no longer broadcasting wifi. It’s been a bit finicky for a while now, and I reset would usually solve the problem, but no more.
My setup is a cable connection and cable modem downstairs (in a sort of basement/storage area), which is where a router would go, and my house is wired throughout with ethernet. So, I don’t really need a wifi mesh, but I do want a wifi hub/extender of some sort which would plug into the ethernet upstairs to give me strong wifi throughout the house.
Wirecutter suggests the Netgear R7000P Nighthawk as the best router, though I’m too much of an idiot to figure out what I’d pair it with upstairs.
