I'm looking to find the best deal on a wireless router that I can. Been looking at some AC routers but I'm wondering if I should just stick with N for now. Im replacing my WNDR3400 that doesn't quite have enough range to cover my house. Looking for a good deal on a router that will cover a 5300 sq ft house.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Have you thought about strategically placing a repeater or using a wireless bridge to extend your network?

AC would require upgrading all of your wireless adapters.

Even at that, your house like mine is really to big for a single radio. I would add another router configured as a wireless access point distant to the current router. You either need to connect it with an Ethernet cable or use a pair of high quality powerline adapters like the Zyxel PLA5205kit or 5215kit (Newegg has the PLA5215 kit on sale as well as a great router to add as an AP -- the ASUS RT-N56U).
