SUGGESTED SECURE ROUTERS
Peplink Surf SOHO (ROUTER & Wi-Fi) 120 Mbps
The Surf SOHO is a professional-grade router that is secure,
reliable, and easy to use. This router will stay with you
for the long run.
The Surf SOHO is both easy to use and secure. You can assign
the Ethernet ports to different VLANs to isolate devices.
Wi-Fi networks too, can be walled off, creating isolated
networks where guests or IoT devices canÕt even see each
other. Unlike most routers, you can change the admin User
ID. No need to disable insecure WPS, it's not supported.
Most importantly, we build our firmware in-house and
regularly update it, making it that much more reliable.

EERO -- What About Eero Mesh Routers? 600-1000 Mbps
"Many people rave about Eero for its great Wi-Fi performance.
However, Eero is owned by Amazon, and as far as I am
concerned, that is a reason to avoid them. I would also
avoid any router from Google for the same basic reason - the
company wants to know (and does know) so much about us.
Worse, I have used Google Wi-Fi and it stinks as a router,
having nothing to do with security. Keep in mind that the
router sees the unique MAC address of your devices which
enables assorted tracking."
Sam says: I would still recommend Eero for its auto updates
and excellent coverage.
