    Now this is a good piece, masterfully done. It looks sick and i hope it works how it should be. GG!

    Nice and simple, looks amazing.:thumbsup: Plus less space taken up by antenna's.

    As much as I like "gaming" stuff, the "gaming" routers by Asus and other brands look way too crazy.

    I haven't posted on the forum in some time but after seeing this product I just had to. I'm very interested to see what Razer can bring to the table. My current profession is a network engineer, at home I have an enterprise grade firewall, switch, and AP, but my friends always ask me what I recommend for their home use. Both my employer and myself always recommend Eero for one simple reason: they work. When someone sets up an Eero system they never have issues. There is no daily/weekly/monthly reboot of the router, no dropped packets, no issues. I personally have never tested Eero I just know they work from all the people I know that use them.

    I may get this system and swap it with my enterprise gear to see how well it truly works as I have a gaming advocate friend who is looking for a better system and this may be it. He doesn't want the Eero as the price is out there and so is this, but he is coming to peace with the fact that to get a system that works you have to pay.

    I love seeing Razer expanding to every aspect of gaming. Peripherals, systems, mobile, and now networking. Go Razer!

    That's clearly something unexpected from Razer.
    And it's a good surprise, I may consider to buy one so my geek family could mange way better sharing the bandwich beetween each device.

    This option for prioritize your specific apps is really nice idea and ,,Dynamic Frequency Selection´´ is great benefit. Yea, I know u will get dedicated app but still i think this router is a bit overpriced.

    a little bit overpriced, at least in Italy where I live. Asus and Netgear offer the same at a lower price and for sure better support and faster firmware updates...
    the Design is awesome btw. is the top lighting?

    I've really enjoyed watching Razer branch out over the years going from exclusively focused on CPU hardware to diversifying to include products tailored to fit its sole followers: gamers. Although I do love my PC, it's hard to stay permanently rooted to it while titles such as Pokemon and Halo are still out there, so I can't help but be excited to be able to better integrate Razer products into all that. Kind of a budget gamer, but the Sila is definitely gonna be an exception for me.

    It would be nice to have a gaming router but you know here in Italy my connection doesnt go over 5Mbps so.... Yeah maybe in the future when we get out of middle ages here i will buy it... :rage:

    How many sockets? Is that 4 + 1 to connect to your network? Or is it 3 + 1 which is useless for me?
    (NAS Drive, AVR, TiVo, PS4)

    Edit : reading further that's 3 LAN +1 WAN. That's poor.

    Either NAS, PS or TiVo would need to go onto WiFi. (Arcam say they don't believe in WiFi in audio equipment).
    Or does anyone know if qnap usb to the usb 3 socket on the razer here would work? (Are these normally UPnP?)

    Hi!!

    I looked at the specs and as far as i can tell the difference apart from the design/aesthaetics seems to be the Razer Silas is AC3000 as compared to the Portal which runs AC2600 - this also seem to be the cause for the price difference - the higher number means that it can handle more bandwith.
