I just want to ask your suggestions about best router for gaming?
lol, it doesn't matter for me, as my Internet is crap no matter what. :)
I've purchased a modem/router for $560 AUD and it didn't help a bit, hence the issue is not with the router, so it seems. Luckily, I could get a full refund on the item.
I've heard that Australian internet is rough.
It shouldn't be though. I'm on fiber optics, but you cannot go for months without some problems.
For starters, if two processes want to use the Internet, one could get starved. WTF?! Is this a terrible router/modem or bad service from the provider? This is constant. And after a while (few weeks or months) other issues happen: no connection, or random disconnects if any load is put on the connection. Some "gets fixed", so stops on it's own.
Understatement. It's complete crap. I'm on NBN (the fastest internet here) and I'm barely breaking 2.4MB/s on downloads. And that's god like compared to my old ADSL connection, I got 8mbps...
Assuming you are talking about using the WiFi functionality..
Assuming you can just hook a Ethernet cable up to it and don't get some crappy $30 router your ISP is definitely going to be your limited factor long before a router is. What you need to worry about is ping and not download speeds or anything.
Budget : TP-Link Archer C7 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (AC1750) ; Will do just fine for your use case just as long as your entire family doesn't do streaming 24-7
Mainstream : Netgear Nighthawk ; Will have excellent speeds as long as your ISP supplies them, can handle heavy usage like gaming, streaming , e.t.c.
But really you might want to check your ISP plans because that is usually where the router assumingly becomes slow at instead of the router itself. And also try to use Ethernet because it is a lot more stable than wifi and all motherboards certainly have Ethernet cable comparability, not so with wifi.
is it easy to config to QOS sir? like making my desktop as a priority and still didn’t get high ping on game while someone downloading on other device?
The Netgear Nighthawk comes with Netgear Genie which is their version of QOS.
And TP LINK probably has QOS
thank you very much for this sir, i’ll pick netgear nighthawk for my home router :) thank you very much :)
Vouch the Tplink Archer line up, solid stuff. Two C5 routers, here.
