Routers that are best to avoid

The new 802.11ac (AC) wireless standard, which offers up to 1.3-gigabit per second Wi-Fi speed for compatible clients, is pretty great. The good news is that AC routers work with older Wi-Fi clients as well. The bad news: They're not all worth your hard-earned cash. These four came in below CNET's expectations.
