One of the best things I did this year already was to buy a new router. I was getting speeds of 0.6MBPS down (I know... I live in Australia and Internet speed here is fucked), dropped some coin on the D-Link Cobra and my speed went up to 12.8MBPS and now have the best Wifi coverage I've ever had... and that's just from the hardware upgrade.
That being said... It was not cost effective
I have the new modem set up, running laptop on the 5G connection. I never even bothered to look up the difference between 2.4G and 5G until today .
We'll see how the next little bit goes in terms of lagging due to devices.
Update: I thought something was odd when the new modem came with a wifi password. I realized while trying to fall asleep that the new modem has a built in router . So I think we're good at least until we get our first house.
