Browse the selection of gaming modems available at Staples® to find the right cable or DSL modem for your gaming PC or console. Playing online games is a bandwidth-intensive task that requires a high-tier internet plan. To take full advantage of your broadband internet connection, you need a high-speed modem. Staples has an extensive range of gaming modems as well as other computer peripherals.

Choose Fast Gaming Modems to Download Heavy Files
Besides playing video games, gamers also need a fast internet connection to download game files and enjoy in-game voice chats. These tasks use up data and require a consistent internet connection. While cable and DSL internet providers often rent modems to subscribers, you should buy your own to avoid monthly rental fees and get a faster model. Before ordering it, make sure the DSL or cable box you choose is compatible with your ISP's network. You can find out by checking the list of approved modems on its website.

If you opt for a cable gaming modem, make sure it supports DOCSIS® 3.0 or later. DOCSIS is the standard that cable providers use to deliver internet services. Modems that support the third generation of this standard are ideal for subscribers paying for cable internet connections that offer download speeds above 300Mbps. Choose a DOCSIS 3.1 router if the provider in your area offers Gigabit speeds.

Consider High-Speed Routers While Shopping for Gaming Modems
Although a gaming PC or console can connect directly to a modem, it is better to have a router between both devices. Routers generally have better security features than modems. Furthermore, a router can distribute the incoming internet connection to other devices besides your gaming hardware. In addition to a fast modem, you also need an equally fast router for gaming. To help maintain broadband internet speeds, most DSL and cable modems have Gigabit Ethernet ports to establish fast connections with routers.

You can avoid troubleshooting compatibility issues between a modem and a router by opting for a modem-router combo device. This hybrid is an all-in-one solution that brings the internet into your home and also distributes it to other devices. Whether you pick a separate gaming router or a modem with a built-in router, make sure you have a Wireless-N or AC router. Wireless-AC units offer faster wireless speeds and are usually dual-band and tri-band routers.

Should Casual Gamers Get Fast Gaming Modems?
Yes. As long as you are competing with other players online, you need a fast internet connection with low latency. A high-speed modem will help eliminate input lag and framerate drops that can affect your gaming performance.

What Gaming Modems Are Ideal for Streaming?
You need a high-speed DSL or cable modem to stream HD and 4K contents on your game console or gaming PC. Streaming gameplay consumes more data than playing games. Live streaming also requires a faster internet connection. Since game streaming uploads video and audio files to the internet, you need the best modem for gaming with a high upload speed and preferably with four to eight upstream channels.

Are There 4G Gaming Modems?
Yes. 4G LTE internet connections are fast enough for online gaming. 4G modems usually have built-in routers too. For mobile gaming sessions, get a portable 4G modem with a rechargeable battery.
