Is there really such a thing as a truly secure router? Yes and no. It all depends on the strength of your network password. Hackers are always busy and whenever there’s a new security feature, they are there working to find a way to break through it. It is true that the stronger the encryption level on your router, the longer it will keep a hacker and intruder guessing. But once they have made their way through, then it is the strength of your password that will determine whether they break in successfully or not.
With that said, what we’ve done here is we’ve researched top selling routers and we’ve picked only the top 5 of the bunch. These are routers that have consistently good reviews and have a high enough encryption level.
