So this is a two-part question...I've had this
router for a few years now (it's been at least 3 years, I think. I can't remember where I got it, I think a friend might've given it to me like 4 years ago), and a month ago it suddenly started to have regular issues with the wireless signal. My wired
signal still seems to be completely fine, but the wireless signal will now die for a few seconds, multiple times throughout the day.
I've read that routers generally only last for about 3-5 years on average before they start to die, is that accurate?
Since absolutely nothing has changed with my internet setup or any of my hardware, I'm assuming the router is in fact dying. Also, looking it up now, it seems like it might've not been the best router to begin with?
If you guys have any recommendations on a replacement, that would be great! I'm not exactly sure what parameters to look for.
