Routers have had MIMO for a while, but MU-MIMO is still relatively new and routers are just now starting to take advantage of it. Linksys announced two new routers, the first is EA9500 which has a max throughput of 5.3Gbps. The second new router is EA7500 that has a max throughput of 1900Mbps.
The Wi-Fi router range for home networks depends on a number of variables, such as the size of the home and the number of devices that are going to be in use. For example, a single story home can get away with a router offering an average range, a couple of LAN ports, 2 antennas and 802.11n standard.
