Best small business routers 2019

If you’re looking for the best small business routers of 2019, then you’ve come to the right place. In this guide we take a look at the very best wireless routers that are geared towards small and medium sized businesses – or home office use if you work from home.

While the best small business routers in 2019 don’t have the sheer horsepower that routers aimed at huge enterprises do (needed to handle large amounts of network traffic from all its employees), it doesn’t mean these are under-powered routers that will fall over as soon as more than five people try to access a server.

Modern routers now often come with dual or even triple band connectivity, as well as a slew of other features usually found on far more expensive enterprise-grade models, while costing considerably less.

The complexity and requirements of running a wireless network these days mean that the best small business routers now have a much more varied feature set, as well as including hardware that’s often found in computers.

Businesses will look for different features than most every day users: security, support, remote access, business grade VPN, WAN redundancy, connectivity options and scalability are more important than things like raw speed, value or QoS features.
