Kitting out your gaming setup is usually a lot of fun. After you painstakingly manage cables to build a gaming PC, and shell out for the perfect peripherals, you’re finally ready to venture online. The squad is in the CS:GO lobby and you’re ready to go 16-0 on Cache. Then, just after the warm-up period, your connection drops.
Turns out that your ISP’s stock router isn’t up to scratch, your team is now down a player, and you’ve earned yourself a nasty competitive cooldown for abandoning the match. It’s on this sham of a Friday night that you realise picking up a reliable gaming router isn’t the most exciting purchase, but it’s one of the most important.
The Asus TUF Gaming AX5400 router is built for every type of gamer, providing you with a reliable connection both wired and wirelessly. It features WiFi 6 functionality, which boasts stronger signals across a wider area compared to WiFi 5. While it’s unlikely that you’ll have an internet plan that takes full advantage of the speeds that WiFi 6 promises, upgrading your router to the next generation of WiFi should provide you with a more stable connection. This also means that even if your network is stacked with your entire family’s devices, all of them will receive the same bandwidth.
