1) Budget - would prefer to keep it under $200 if at all possible. I saw that this was Wirecutter's recommended pick: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NA80JML?tag=thewire06-20&linkCode=xm2&ascsubtag=AgEAAAAAAAAAASwc and this was another one I saw recommended on a different site (can't remember which): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N4R01UJ/ref=psdc_300189_t2_B06XZ3S6B8 So I'm wondering if something like that could do the trick or if I'd need to step up to something much more expensive. 2) Multiple devices, but it's rare that they're all used at once: -TCL Roku TV in living room - will use a wired ethernet connection for this -AppleTV 4K in living room - will use a wired ethernet connection for this -Oppo BD player - connects to WiFi for remote control app, wifi connection not used for streaming -Onkyo AVR - connects to WiFi for remote control app, wifi connection not used for streaming -MacBook Pro laptop (x2) - my wife and I each have one, they are rarely used for streaming media -iPhone (x2) - my wife and I each have one, they are rarely used for streaming media -PS4 - my wife uses this for local gameplay, she may download game updates but doesn't play online with other users -AppleTV HD in bedroom - used on extremely rare occasions 3) Our usage patterns are manageable (I think). We've never had a problem with using our laptops together and/or iPhones together at the same time. It's more typical that my wife or I might be streaming something on the TV, and then we're just using a laptop or iPhone to surf the web, check social media sites, etc. It's possible that there might be a rare occasion that we could both be streaming HD video at the same time, but in practice, it's not likely to happen often. Would be nice to have the capability just in case that changes. 4) I think 750-800 square feet. At this time, the verdict is that an ethernet run would not be ideal. It's very likely that we're only going to be here one more year, so I'm not looking to put the kind of effort in that it would take to get a nice, subtle ethernet run. If I had known when we moved in that it was going to be an issue, I would have done it back then, but at this point, I'm more interested in replacing my dying Apple Extreme router with something that will at least equal (and maybe exceed) what I had, and if it solves my other range problems, great, but if it just keeps me neutral to where I was, I can live with that too.
