Hello fellow members of the forum, I need help picking a new router for gaming and need your help.
I am looking to replace my current router (Dlink xtreme wireless n600 gigabit router dir-825). Recently it has been disconnecting and reconnecting at its own desire every 15 minutes and now it won't connect at all. I called our internet provider and we determined the router is the source of the problem. Now a main concern is bandwidth distribution. We have a ps3 & 360 that are on very often, as well as three laptops. We also have a few wireless devices on from time to time. With that being said, I'd like a router that can control this, without forcing my games to lag when someone else is on youtube.
The router is in the basement and we have issues connecting to the rooms on the second floor, furthermost from the router. We have an extender so that isn't the biggest issue. I'd like something between the price range of $75-$175. I'd also prefer to buy it in store rather than online. Any advice would be appreciated.
