Those with solid configurations … which is your router of choice?

Those with solid configurations … which is your router of choice?

According to the title? What is your weapon of choice?

I have an extensive setup, mostly full of Philips Hue and Homebridge devices.

About 9-10 months ago, I took a point on setting up the Netgear Orbi with two additional satellites. I always have a few devices that appear to not respond with Orbi and recently I had massive issues, in general, with connections that are not properly maintained with other devices, such as phones / laptops, etc., as well as most HomeKit devices that do not respond. There were no configuration changes with new devices or infrastructure changes, so I’m lost. It was so bad that I went back to an AirPort Extreme.

I’m interested to know what routers you rely on and, if by chance, anyone has a solid and reliable configuration with an Orbi.
