Gaming Routers

SORT BY:
Speed and performance of the available Internet are important factors to an intense gamer. A gaming router provides a fast and stable connection that is optimal for streaming games and watching videos. Staples® carries a line of gaming routers as well as gaming computers and accessories.

Reasons to Purchase a Gaming Router
A gaming router is one of the best ways to improve your Internet performance for streaming games and video. Other users on the network can also benefit from the higher speeds and reliable connection. This type of router improves browsing, downloading times, and upload speed. With this sort of router, you can wire a gaming console directly to the router to achieve maximum speeds, which only the speed of your ISP connection can limit.

Faster processors prevent the decrease in speed that occurs when other processes run on the computer or when others are accessing the same WI-Fi connection. These routers identify and prioritize gaming data packets, so a gamer's needs come first when the router allocates and routes the Internet from the ISP modem.

Available Options for a Gaming Router
The best routers for gaming are those that use advanced technologies that typically aren't part of a standard router's offering. Extra ports let you set up devices for access within the network. Connect a USB flash drive for sharing gaming profiles and software programs, or set up a printer to generate activity reports. A gaming router also doubles as a way to charge a smartphone or other media device when using the correct cable.

These devices have high bandwidth ranges, so multiple users can play on the same network without a lag. Dual-band and tri-band designs also allow for flawless multiple device connections. Choose a router with a high-frequency range of at least 5GHz so you aren't sharing the web space.

What's the Difference Between an Ethernet Switch and a Router?
A router channels the internet connection from a modem to multiple users within the same network. It takes the internet connection and broadcasts it for access to all users. A switch connects multiple internet devices to one another and can route information to a specific computer, which makes it more selective than a router.

How Do You Increase Security on a Wireless Gaming Router?
To boost the security on a wireless gaming router, it's important to set up a password to the network. To do so, you must access your router settings within an internet browser.

What Is the Difference Between a Wireless Router and a Wireless Extender?
The main difference between a wireless router and a wireless extender is the ability to route information from one computer to the next. A router can act as an extender, but an extender cannot act as a router. An extender, or repeater as some people call it, lengthens the range of the connection. They often become part of an overall solution to cover dead zones within a home or office. Unlike a router, an extender does not offer any type of firewall or security protection.
