I have a Brother MFC-8890DW multifunction machine.
It will scan color, or black and white to my desktop.
I also have an older flatbed scanner but it is just black and white.

SO...now you just have to eliminate the fax machine part of the equation. If you're worried, you can start by simply asking "Will an e-mailed scan suffice, or is a fax required?" Most businesses and people are also trying to do away with the fax machine, so you going is just one more person they don't have to deal with. Heck, I can't even fax the state Gov't offices here anymore.

Right...for your router options, I don't really know what you want, need or do with your network, but the EA7300 (also the cheapest on that list at $129) seems like a decent router to me (review at the link). It does everything it's supposed to, and gives you quite a few traffic shaping options as well. If I was looking for a wireless router, I would seriously consider it. Sure, you could spend more, and you're more than welcome to find a few reviews, and see how they stack up. For me, I'm a bit miserly. I'll spend the money when necessary, but I don't want to waste it, either. If I can get good performance, and save $70 or more, I'll save it - I can turn a few of those into something for my bike. Please, please, please, hit the reviews, and see what looks good to you. I'm more than willing to give my opinion, but the decision has to be yours.

This is one I'm considering. i still haven't decided, though. This one doesn't support B/G, it's only N/AC. I personally don't have any B/G devices, but I have a lot of people who come over, and I don't want to lock them out because I don't support their devices. So, it's still up in the air.

I was looking at both the 1750 and 1900 (WRT1900ACS).
I should probably go with the 1750 (EA7300).

I'll wait until I install the new modem and evaluate further.
Thank you for all of the help

I restarted my modem, for a test.
Connected to 2.4, I get 25 download
Connected to 5, I get 107 download
Does that mean that the 2.4 chip in my router is failing?

My new TV is 4K, if that makes any difference on which router I buy.

The TV will be fine with pretty much any router. You're going to wire it up, right? So it'll be running at 1G speeds to the router, and whatever external speed the network manages.

I'll have to research your current router, but it could be (and likely is) that when connected using 2.4, you're not connecting at N or AC speeds. B and G use 2.4.

I got a Linksys EA7300 Max Stream AC 1750 router today.
My new modem is coming.

I will have both wired and wireless connections to receiver and TV.
I got the low voltage old work bracket and my grandson will provide the rest, when he can get here to crawl under and wire it.
