TP-Link's newest router is a monster designed for gamers, and it's called the Archer C5400X. No, you haven't stumbled across an alien artifact while exploring a derelict space station. That is a wireless router just like other normal-looking wireless routers from TP-Link but with features appealing to hardcore gamers.
The Archer C5400X has a 1.8GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, eight Gigabit LAN ports, and one Gigabit WAN port. The triple Wi-Fi bands can reach speeds up to 5400 Mbps with one 2.4GHz band for 1000 Mbps and two 5GHz bands for 2167 Mbps. It also has MU-MIMO technology, which is quickly becoming standard tech for any home that uses multiple devices on one wireless network. Airtime Fairness, RangeBoost, and Dynamic optimization all help prioritize traffic, strengthen reception, and keep your devices online. It also has built-in antivirus to protect your router and any device connected to it from threats.
Of course, you could also go with the C5400X's little brother, the Archer C5400 for just $250. It's not as feature-rich but still a router made for gamers. The C5400X is available on Amazon, B&H, and other retailers but starts at $399.99. You could also explore the Netgear Nighthawk series of wireless routers. They have a lot of features and don't cost nearly as much, but then none of those routers look like a device Sauron would use to forge the Rings of Power.
