    I used to burn through routers every year or two. Then I shelled out cash for an Apple router and it has lasted six years so far. I also have the Verizon router / modem combo and it has been rock solid.

    i am in the market for a new router.. old one is fine but i want a feature this one doesn't have. i want to be able to send syslog from the router to a collector so i can get all geeky with the data. but i don't want to spend $200

    All set. The new router arrived this morning and it's good to go. Can't complain about the customer service.

    I've had good luck with Linksys. I think I'm on 4+ years on one.....3 on the other.

    I'm not a fan of the all one ones; if something goes wrong, you need a new one. With them separate, you can replace one or the other. Do the cable companies charge you a monthly fees for those all in ones? The first thing I did when I switch to cable internet from DSL was to buy my own modem. $80....paid for itself in short order.

    I used Nescom wireless router it works nearly 2 yrs. I used in my office but unfortunately, I placed it in a bad router table. so fell down and my router gets damaged. so wireless router life span is effected I suggest using these list of best router tables https://www.consumersbase.com/best-router-table/ for placing your router

    Routers usually last 3-4 years.

    I just bought a new router today as my current one (a 10+ year old Dlink one) is starting to act up and sporadically will stop working for a bit here and there (as an example a few days ago wifi stopped working but wired was still working. Eventually the issue fixed itself and wifi started working again but there have been several times recently where I had to reboot it). Probably time for an upgrade anyway.
