Don't cheap out on a router. Netgear nighthawk series works very well. I'm using an R7800, great router, great range, excellent thoroughput. R7000 is also a good option. 

Wait for upcoming sales. R7000 went for 5k at Flipkart last time, which is crazy pricing. 

Well its just my internet guy told me to get this one. Its going for 2.2k right now, but I dont mind spending a little more cash for a better router, but do you think it worth putting in 5k? Even if its such a good price? Ill check out the your router for sure tho :)

Also I dont have any idea about compatibility here honestly speaking......

As I said before, don't cheap out on routers man. They are your gateway to the internet, and you want it to be as smooth as possible. 

Ideally AC1900 and above is what you should look at. Most modern devices support MIMO, so if the router has it, you will get better thoroughput. Finally it should be able to connect to a fair number of devices considering almost every home as multiple phones, tablets, TVs etc simultaneously accessing the net. 

If you get r7000 for 5k, just get it. It's a very good router. 

 

Not sure if I understand the point about compatibility. For most ISPs (except Jio), you can either connect them in bridge mode, or simply connect the new router to old routers LAN port.

Okay yes the R7000 is AC1900 so that's sorted. I don't use Jio, so shouldn't be a problem. Thanks a lot for the help, I'll wait for the sales like you said and hopefully I can bag it for 5k. Its going for almost 10k right now on Amazon.

Also my old router is absolute crap, Id rather just use the new one directly, and chuck the old one out.

I have been thinking about getting a new router too but Airtel needs a modem and the one they provide isn't that good. So anyone on Airtel, using some other router or modem? 

VDSL routers aren't that abundant.

Just use the Airtel one as modem, and connect a new router either in bridge mode or using a LAN port.

Keep an eye on FK too. They had very limited time deals some weeks back on routers.
