Hello, We have 30 mbps home internet that is DSL. We have a 3 year old Apple router and our connection is very faulty. We stream on two devices generally – a laptop and tablet, sometimes a phone. This is for online collaborative drawing boards and sometimes sites to watch movies, hear music. I was looking at Asus routers – perhaps AC5300 (expensive!) or AC3100/3150? I think AC1900 is not good enough for our needs? Also, I don’t even know if I should be looking at “AC” model routers! Thank you so much! Sara

For 30 Mbps, just about any modern router will serve you well. 30 Mbps is now considered relatively slow. Still you might want to look at a router than can handle 100 Mbps + connections in case you upgrade in the near future. Generally the Linksys EA3500 or similar router will work well, but now the Linksys EA6350 is selling for around $80 and is plenty powerful for most needs, including higher end applications.
