Editor's Notes

January 05, 2019: Make no mistake, business routers are entirely different beasts from consumer-oriented devices. Where the units made for our homes are frequently re-engineered and re-released, these highly integrated models generally receive consistent and effective firmware and software updates, and are meant to last a corporation for quite a while without replacement. Cisco is an undeniable world leader int he category, and as long as you can wade through their massive selection, they likely have an option that will fill your needs. We like the Synology because it's affordable enough for a small business, and offers security features essentially on a par with many more advanced models. Also it's said to be reliable and easy to set up. The Gryphon is an interesting option, as it's marketed to families, but works just as well in offices, delivering security and monitoring features that equal far more expensive choices. FortiNet, the makers of the FortiWiFi, are another widely known brand with a huge slate of offerings. Dell's Sonicwall is a little older, but it's been upkept by excellent support over the last two years. The Netgear, on the other hand, could end up as one of the top business routers in the coming months and even years, though it's new, and as such is still getting its kinks worked out — which is a somewhat common trope around these commercial-oriented devices. Finally, the Roqos Core is awfully pricey, but it's packed with features, and the company has even won awards recently due to their adept designs.
