New Wi-Fi router in 2023

It's time for a new wireless router in this household. We had been using Google's system for a while, but the change to 'Nest' hardware came with it a certain lack of reliability. The main unit remains connected, but the mesh connection flakes out just when we need it most.

Seeing as the selling point of Google's Wi-Fi routers are their seamless mesh capabilities, the fact that the mesh isn't holding up is a deal breaker for us. What comes next?

(TL;DR: We like this Asus router.)
