I currently have a linksys EA 4500. It is fairly old even when I got it but now the ports are not running full speed. I currently only have three wired connections, one to my computer and one for the Nvidia sheild and the last to an Amazon firestick box. I have been getting stutters to my Nvidia getting speeds locked to 60 mbps or slower. I have been assuming that the player was capped as the Wifi was about the same if unplugged. This has been going on for awhile and I seem to have lost my 30 foot cat wire. Don't know why but it just didn't occur to me to just change to another port on the router but I did and I got 280+ mbps. I speedtest the computer and it seems to throttle at 230 mbps. I guess the ports are just wonky and the whole this is probably on it's way out. I need some suggestions on a new one so I don't make the same mistake again. I don't need expensive or powerful, just good enough to run my wired and phones printer and TV's from wifi. I also would like if it were not a complicated setup or program to navigate. I only get 300 mbps from my provider but I would like that on all the wired ports. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
