Many wireless router manufactures like Netgear have recently begun marketing their devices to gamers.
In the past, we’ve seen routers that promise to speed up multiplayer gaming by eliminating lag and prioritizing multiplayer titles. This week, Linksys unveiled a new version of its WRT32X gaming router — called the WRT32XB — that’s supposedly designed for Xbox One. According to the company, the WRT32XB automatically detects when an Xbox One is connected to the router, after which it prioritizes and accelerates the bandwidth the console receives. Linksys estimates that the upgraded router should reduce lag spikes and decrease ping by up to 65 percent for Xbox One owners if they choose to invest in the WRT32XB.
