Happened when I swap my Dlink DIR-655 for the Asus RT-N16. The Asus dropped the connection occasionally.
Switched back to Dlink DIR-655.
Alternatively, if you want a powerful router. Get an obsolete P3 or P4, equip with 2 gigabit LAN cards and run pfSense open source router. Stable, powerful, you can prioritize your feed as NUMBER 1 on the port and list and make sure that the feed as an open road to your trading computer without lag.
Download speed is not what we want in trading. It is ping response.
I use to have data connection problems, but I replaced my router and the problem went away. Haven't had a problem for a long time, you may loose the historical data connection on off hours but that has not posed a problem for me yet.
It is not a problem, it is when news comes out. The ticks are not lagging. They are just above and below your range bar limit, and are coming in quick succession, so it paints a lot of range bars.

I want to run parallel two internet connections, so that if one fails, the other start seamlessly without disrupting my zenfire data feed. Please advise as regards any special hardware I require and other settings... Right now I have a cable connection and the other one is a USB broadband device that plugs in my laptop directly.
I have 2 internet feeds, however only 1 is hooked up to my computer. I have the cable for the other sitting next to my computer in case of failure. I know that isn't the best, but at least that is something......i'm not a computer guy, but perhaps putting both internet connections into a switch and then connecting your computer to the switch would create a continuous connection.....
