A new router is just one piece of the network. The components work with one another and depend on ALL the components working in harmony, you might say. One piece will not guarantee improvement in a network. Do more research, what are the Network adapters connecting? What is my ISP speed, remember, your speed will differ, sometime greatly for advertised ISP speeds. The factors are infinite, unknown, and sometimes out of your control. That said if you are using a 802.11 N or AC Wireless in your Home Network, depending on the Computer, Printer, etc. Network Adapters, etc. I use 3 different Access Points, 2 Linksys wrt54g's, 1 wrt160n , all with different SSID's and channels, connecting to 2 printers 2 Laptops, 2 desktops, iPad, Smart HDTV/Netflix, Phone, all work quite well. As I move about the devices will switch to the best signal. Remember the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". But I always try, with different levels of success . You may learn a new way not to do something, I do. Some people call it a mistake.
