    What kind of Router do you use? Do you use a "gaming" router like the ASUS line up?

    I have a Linskys EA 6300 AC 1200. I like and don't mind the router I own at all. However, the place I moved into a few months ago with everyone on the internet and most doing intense online gaming, netflix, etc. and has become slower it seems. So I've pre-ordered the Norton Core but saw that Razer has a hand on it now. What do you guys think? I feel like there is more to be had for the info that is put out about the new Portal thus far.

    I've got an ASUS router which I picked up from a second hand store of all places. My house hasn't got the best internet connection, nor the best set-up in terms of router location compared to where I game. I can't get an ethernet to my Xbox or Set-Up which is a bit unfortunate. Generally you'll want to get a wired connection if it as all possible, it will always be better than wireless. Otherwise it really depends on what you want to improve upon and what your environment is. Better routers will have improved range with antennas etc, and also be able to handle more devices connected to them at once without suffering issues with performance.

    Honestly it all comes down to what your limitations are, and finding the right solutions to maximising your performance :)

    @ThirdDegreePun I'm just looking into the Portal and actually cancelling the Norton order. I'd just like to know more about the Portal before taking that direction. Just seems as I dont have all the info I need from the Razer store. I guess time will tell!

    There's some scepticism on the claims made by that Router. I'd definitely wait for reviews, they are your friend here hahaha.

    Google onhub
    the one from TP-link
    I have mixed feeling and it is expensive when I bought it (200$)
    it has been discontinued by google for some reason

    I have always used the default one that comes with my service provider and never had an issue. I get about 150mb down and range always been great.

    Although depending on your house layout, mesh networks can be very helpful with fixing any issues your modem may have.
