|I'm looking to replace a customer's D-Link DIR-615 with something capable of quite a bit more range, and perhaps even using the new 802.11ac standard rather than 802.11n.|
I don't have any preference regarding the brand providing it is fairly reputable and has a decent customer service reputation. Some horrors with D-Link in the past are causing me to shy away from them a bit.
The replacement needs to have quite a bit more range than the DIR-615- as there are two buildings on the property, and the DIR-615 alone cannot currently reach the second building. They would like to have Wi-Fi in the second building for streaming movies, so it will need to be able to cast at least a decent signal to the other building that a repeater can then access. The walls in the first house are fairly thick (former log cabin), and the DIR-615 can just barely reach a window in the second house depending on the device used. It is far too slow at that range to be usable, however.
Additionally, the new router needs to be compatible all the way back to at least 802.11g, however, 802.11b would be preferable.
As for the budget, they don't want to spend any more than $120 at the absolute maximum.
Thank you in advance!
