Router recommendations for the opposite of a tinkerer?
So yeah, I've had a Cisco/Linksys E4200 for years now, and it appears to be going, for want of a better word, "fucky". Can't even update the firmware to most recent, and every so often I lose WAN connectivity, which is annoying as hell. Figure it's been 5-6+ years of good service, so... Shopping.
I'm currently looking at Google wifi, rather not pay for an Airport, I guess Cisco sold Linksys to Belkin and fuck Belkin, fuck Netgear on principle, and have absolutely no interest in tinkering with it, custom firmwares, etc etc. The most I ever care about is setting DNS to 22.214.171.124 and that it'll let me run the average work type VPN. I would also like it to not instantly turn into a fileserver for an enterprising young lad in Slovakia, if you know what I mean and I think you do. Maybe a guest network.
800-something sqft apartment, walls are... Sheetrockish, and there's roughly 3 million surrounding other networks I can pick up, so I kind of like the smart/automatic channel handling on the Google puck. Needs to handle a couple legacy G-ish devices, but N/AC is a want, though I think that's reasonably ubiquitous these days.
I'm also kind of cheap, and figure one of those $300 7-antenna "everything including cooks you eggs in the morning" devices is overkill. Eventual expandability via mesh or whatever should I move/need it would also be nice.
