This $275 TP-Link Archer gaming router is a deal you shouldn't miss

Amazon is offering 21% off the popular gaming router.
Written by Charlie Osborne, Contributing Writer

Today's gaming consoles, software, and cloud services are a world away from the days of Game Boys and the Sega Genesis. 

While retro games have a place in many hearts (myself included), modern gaming often demands a stable, strong, and speedy Internet connection to perform properly. The problem is that often, the typical routers provided by your ISP won't perform too well, especially in busy households in which numerous devices are fighting for bandwidth. 

Gaming routers were developed with this problem in mind. If you're looking for a router that is better equipped to handle gamers and heavy traffic, we have found a deal for you. 

Available on Amazon, the price of the TP-Link WiFi 6 gaming router has been cut by 21%, reducing the cost from $350 to $275, a saving of $75.

The TP-Link WiFi 6 gaming router (Archer AX10000) offers users tri-band connectivity on the 2.4GHz/5GHz frequencies over Wi-Fi and Ethernet. TP-Link says the router can handle Wi-Fi speeds of up to 10Gbps. The router contains a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, OFDMA and MU-MIMO data transfer technologies, and mesh support. Low latency features and a dedicated gaming mode are included.

If you're in need of a more affordable option, we've also spotted a TP-Link AX1800 (Archer AX21) WiFi 6 router on sale at Amazon. This router will cover all the basics for $70, a discount of 30%, or $20 off the typical $100 retail price.
