What the heck is a gaming router?

And in the name of the image: Do gamers really use wifi instead of cable ethernet? I mean… besides the latency it has way more packet loss.

@deusfigendi @Linux_in_a_Bit the ones that don't use ethernet cables are convinced if you pay enough for a wifi router it's faster.
good recurring story arc

@Homegriffon @deusfigendi Yet the wifi router ironically uses ethernet to connect to that garbage isp modem anyway 😂

@Homegriffon @Linux_in_a_Bit

One could buy two $250 Ethernet-cables and do a link aggregation :D

Sadly that Asus-Thingy does only 2.5 GBit/s not 10G.

@Linux_in_a_Bit @Homegriffon

Well if you pay 500 Bucks for your router you might also get a modern WIFI-Card in your gaming computer and/or connect it with an ethernet cable to that router.

Best of both worlds!!!

@deusfigendi @Homegriffon sadly fancy router has no modem, so you will need a modem that likely already has a router built in :/

@Linux_in_a_Bit @Homegriffon

Only if you want to connect to the internet, maybe that gaming router is cool for LAN-Parties.

Well if erm the pandamic is over and… oooh that's it:

With such a gaming-router you can do your LAN-Party contact free and pandamic compliant 🤦🏻‍♀️

@deusfigendi You can use any router for that tho...
Heck, buy a MikroTik CRS-326-24G-2S+RM.
24 giabit ports :|
$150 or so, works like a charm.
Also has SFP+ (10gbit) for connecting your server or something.

@deusfigendi A "Gaming Router" is basically just a consumer router with an aggressive look and useless gimmicks to upsell it to retards that want all the "gaming" features.

I can do basically the same with a 50 euro MikroTik AP so w/e.
