If you play the best PC games online as much as we do, you likely want one of the best gaming routers to make sure your online gaming is never interrupted.

To put it simply, the top gaming routers are designed to prioritize network traffic from games, a feature known as QoS (Quality of Service), so your gaming won’t be interrupted by your roommate trying to watch Netflix up in their room.

Just ask any gamer, and they’ll probably tell you (for hours) that using a wired connection for online gaming is the best way to do it, and we’d have to agree. So, the best gaming routers will feature plenty of Gigabit Ethernet ports. 

However, it’s just not feasible to have everyone in your home use a wired connection, sot the top gaming routers will feature the latest and fastest WiFi standards – currently Wi-Fi 5. Having external antennae which can be moved to direct the Wi-Fi signal to certain areas of your home can’t hurt, either.

With the particular needs of gamers in mind, then, here are the very best gaming routers you can buy.
