i am currently using tp link Tl-wr340gd G router and is faulty(cant get a signal after im 6steps away from it -__-).another problem with it is that whenever i try to connect a new device i have to manually enter the IP adress to the phone or laptop maybe thats because its a outdated g router
my budget is 6.5k i want a router that does not need to be moved around to get good signal and lasts atleast 3years to be future proof.
please suggest me a router that meets the following points-
1)a router that can cover a 2600sq ft. house both 1st and 2nd floor(2600sq ft equals how many feet or metre any idea?)
2)automatically connects new devices after entering passwords(no manual ip problem like i had before)
3)can stream youtube hd on smartphones
im totally a noob about routers and i dnt have enough knowledge on gigabit,5ghz,N+ stuff so help me out.
