My wireless networking needs are relatively simple in that I live in a small apartment and don't do anything special on my network besides connect computers, smartphones and printers. With that said, with one printer, two smart phones and four laptops (one MBA 2012, one MBP and two MBs from around 2009) connected to the network recently and what feels like a more crowded wireless network neighborhood, my Netgear N150 WNR1000 router feels a lot slower than it used to. I'd like to update to a dual band router without spending a lot of money. It seems that older threads suggest non-Apple routers based on performance and value, but now that the new Airport Express is simultaneous dual-band, does everyone still feel the same way? A lot of the routers recommended here sell for at least $120. Are there some other non-Apple routers that are cheaper than the Airport Express that you recommend instead of the AE? Thanks a lot!
