I was using a Linksys 54G wifi router which ran without any issue for about 8 years. Now I need a new one that meets my requirements as follows:

- Coverage for a 3 bhk house about 1800 sq feet (so will have walls in between)
- There are up to 2 computers, 2 tabs and 2 phones connected playing YouTube videos and surfing the web.
- I have a D-Link modem which is ADSL2 plus , so only router needed which is compatible esp ADSL2.

My budget is about Rs 2000 but + or - Rs 500 is ok. Suggestions of cheap routers that meet the above criteria are welcome.

Important - Range is important since I need good signal in all rooms in the house. I browsed online marketplaces but there is no detail regarding range in any of the product descriptions, only in some feedback comments.

How about D-Link DSL-2750U?

Since my modem is D-Link there will be no compatibility issues is it's a D-Ling router. TP may have, according to some feedback on the link above.

^^^W8968 has a range issue.

(Notes from OP ... Important - Range is important since I need good signal in all rooms in the house. I browsed online marketplaces but there is no detail regarding range in any of the product descriptions, only in some feedback comments.)

Update: Went for D-Link DIR-605L Wireless N300 Cloud Router which met ALL my requirements.

Right off the assembly line
You can get the Asus N66U for about 115 dollars.
It support both 2.4 and 5GHz, is dd-wrt compatible, the coverage is great, I have 2 laptops, 1 TV, 3 phones and also a PS4 and the signal is stable.
As for speed performance the Asus is one of the fastest routers for a price bellow 200 dollars.
