Router for gaming and streaming

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What's the best router for gaming and streaming videos?

Gonna have 4 device on it.

PC
PS3
Laptop
Smartphone.

No budget but lets be reasonable!

Thanks!

Neither of those applications are going to require advance networking. You would be fine with pretty much any decent router. I use this router for these purposes, and its fine:

Pretty much anything will work. Use a Ethernet cord wherever possible for the best performance.

Asus RTN66-U if the budget allows. It's the king of pop right now.

I'd agree with the RT-N66U it has a Two USB Port
Good Cooling
and 256MB of RAM
N900
Dual Band 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ

Can't go wrong.

Anything not in the $19.99 clearance bin should be fine.
Gaming isn't bandwidth intensive and most streaming videos don't break a few mbit.
