Right now I am using the ASUS router that T-Mobile hands out at my family's home and an Archer C8 at my weekday commuter residence. The bandwidth benchmarks suggest my PC is seeing pretty close to the provider specifications.
At my family's home, we don't seem to have those buffering problems. At my weekday residence, Comcast sometimes takes a dive, but the community forums seem to suggest that is a provider issue (I.e. a number of homes all get hit at once.)
If you are happy with what you have,and it works don't fix it.
