    probably will never be found; the issue is not the wireless access point that is part of the router; the issue is the range of wireless coverage which is dependent on numerous variables. Larger houses need more than 1 wireless access point

    If house is large, then get a mesh system like Eero

    If house is smaller, then name brand 802.11ac system.

    Put on your list of features automatic code updates.  RUN, don't walk away from routers that do not do that because unupdated routers are a favorite target of hackers and the like.

    No-one will give you any guarantees as to a suitable router, depends on the size of the house , thickness of walls, any electrical interference, position of the router etc. Also depends on the quality of wifi adapters in your equipment etc. You would be better getting a wifi mesh system for more guaranteed coverage

      Wi-Fi mesh is the way to go as you say, but it is usually called something more saleable by the ISPs, such as "Whole Home" or similar.

    You would need a AC1900 or higher rated router.  

    I have a Tenda Ac15 which covers my entire house 2300 sf house and 1000 sf basement.  Strangely it works best located in my basement if you have the flexibility to try different places.

    For larger homes I would recommend a Netgear Orbi Mesh system which effectively works as a single router with multiple nodes.

    Unless you have a very large house that is widely spread out, most wireless routers on the market should provide coverage.
