Network routers provide internet in the form of both Wi-Fi and Ethernet (LAN). With the internet being such a necessity nowadays, you will likely have received a standard router from your provider. However, these routers are often basic and offer little in the way of enthusiast features. Having a great home network has never been more important with devices from watches to fridges all requiring a Wi-Fi connection. This is where we come in, with routers designed by companies such as Asus and TP-Link, for gamers and enthusiasts alike. Featuring the latest in Wi-Fi technology, these routers have high-speed connections with improved signal integrity and increased bandwidth. All your devices can enjoy quality connections with these gaming routers. What’s more, certain routers have web control panels, allowing you to prioritise your most-used gaming or creation applications. More than just connecting wirelessly, these routers offer enhanced LAN connectivity for the fastest possible gaming.
The best routers offer more than enough bandwidth to accommodate all of these devices whilst covering your whole home and providing a great connection speed. Additionally, some gamer and enthusiast routers now allow you to prioritise game data in their web control panels. Whilst modern Wi-Fi is useable for gaming, to get the fastest possible connection connecting to your router or access point via ethernet on a Local Area Network (LAN) offers the fastest and most stable speed. Gaming and enthusiast routers often offer superior LAN networking with faster ports and superior software support.
As the next generation of the wireless standard Wi-Fi 6 offers a significant boost in performance for congested areas. This means for areas such as blocks of flats that have a large amount of Wi-Fi signals, you’ll receive a stronger, further-reaching connection. This new standard also increases speed. Compared to the previous generation Wi-Fi 6 is 3.5 Gbps faster with a communication speed of 9.6 Gbps.
Mesh networking for the home or small networks is ideal for improving coverage in large properties or those with thick or ash block walls that can block Wi-Fi signals. With a traditional router or access point, your wireless signal comes from one area of your home, and the further you are away from the router, the worse your connection will be. Being at a greater distance lowers your speed and ping, which can be the difference between winning and losing in online games. With a mesh network, multiple routers emit the same Wi-Fi and seamlessly provide overlapping coverage for a larger area.

Ethernet is a way of connecting to a Local Area Network (LAN) via a wired cable. Whilst Wi-FI has become increasingly more sophisticated over the last few years, ethernet still offers the most reliable and stable connection. Additionally, gaming and enthusiast routers will often include software controllable or enhanced ports.
Access points are simply a device that is capable of creating a wireless local area network known as a WLAN. These access points are connected to your router or network switch via an ethernet cable which allows them to emit a wireless network.
Routers designed for gamers and enthusiasts often feature premium grade components and are built to handle larger amounts of data faster. What’s more, these routers and access points, usually feature great customisable software allowing simple easy control over network users, firewalls and security features. Additionally, some even include the ability to prioritise game data for the ultimate no lag gaming experience.
