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.
