Limited options in that price bracket. Maybe an Huawei HG659 on TM.

You're dreaming.
You need to spend more.

Asus RT-AC66U or RT-AC68U. Your budget is unrealistic.

None whatsoever.

You'll need to increase your budget quite significantly to buy something decent.

Not the router, but I have a TP-Link AP that works really well.

I got a DLink 868L recently when they were running a cashback deal - seems a good product, and much cheaper than Asus.  Dlink assured me it was fibre compatible, but haven't tested that as we are using the phone port on the Slingshot supplied modem.

Cashback has unfortunately just finished, so about $200 now (was about $150 after cashback).

Be careful with cheap routers! Otherwise you might be running an open DNS relay (yes, I know that ISP's are now starting to block this from happening however my statement still stands)
