Looking for network router recommendation. I came down to the the following choices:

 

1) Linksys AC750: https://www.amazon.c...0/dp/B01JOXW58I

 

2)  Netgear AC2600:  https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B0192911RA

 

I am leaning toward netgear.. 

 

What do you guys think?

I've been there done that.  I bought an AC1900 Nighthawk over 3 yrs ago and it's still going strong.  Before this router I had one die about every 1.5 yrs like clockwork. Granted your experiences may be totally different, but considering Belkin bought Linksys from Cisco I have very little hope for their newer products.  I've also had solid luck out of TP-Link's mid range stuff if you flash to a 3rd party firmware. I usually end up with customers needing to reset them every week after a year or so, but installing DD-WRT on them usually fixes that.
