The top 5 routers that are the best for online gaming and low latency
Awesome... I was just looking for a used router this morning. This list helps. Thanks!
I've been using the Linksys AC1900 for BF4 recently. The game has its own lag issues but switching to that router improved the experience quite a bit.
I'm using the ASUS AC68U , a lil pricey but it's amazing!
I was surprised it wasn't on the list. I have the older 56u.
Just checked the list , they all seem like mid range to budget routers on the , list if I was in the market for a router I wouldn't even consider any of those on the list especially the top4, but I'm really into computers and media consumption so performance is at the top of my list!
Budget is important to people like me. It would have been very easy to put together a list of super expensive routers that were top-of-the-line so kudos to OP for considering us poor folks.
Never understood the benefit of buying a overpriced "gaming" router over any other high performance router.
None of these are over-priced though. Heck, one of them is even around $60.
I use Monster PowerNet 100 and 200 boxes around my house, plug your modem into it, then use the extender box in any room of your house by plugging it into a wall socket and you have immediate Ethernet capabilities. I had issues with my WiFi where I could never stay in a multiplayer game, always got kicked out but buying the powernet just allows you to have ethernet in any room of the house, definitely recommend! You can get them on Amazon for really damn cheap now (compared to what I paid originally)
Gaming router? Hah! You better sell me some gaming speakers while you're at it.
