Router Recommendation for 500mbps fibre

Internet Bandwidth & Networking Clinic - www.hardwarezone.com.sg - forums.hardwarezone.com.sg
May I know which router is recommended, if I'm using it for Starhub 500mbps fibre plan in a 3-room HDB unit please?

Am considering the Asus AC1200G+ however it's only capable of doing 300mbps on wireless N network (which under-utilize the 500mbps speed).

However I read quite a few articles that state the theoretical speed for N network usually go up to 300mbps only, so even if the router is capable of higher speed I won't reap the benefits, unless the device is connected to the router by cable (instead of wifi).

This unit is capable of 867mbps on AC network (wifi), should I disregard the "cap" on N network speed if most of my devices are going to be using wifi, rather than cable connection?

AC68U looks much closer as it's capable of doing 450mbps on wireless N network, although for a 3-room unit it's a bit of an overkill?
