If your router can't quite keep up with your network traffic—whether that be from online gaming sessions or Netflix binge-watching—it might be time for an upgrade. Our top choice for a gaming router in 2019, the Asus RT-AX88U, is now on sale for $249.99 at Amazon.

This high-end router includes eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, support for the next-generation Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, and the highly-praised AsusWRT web interface for managing connections and settings. It also includes Trend Micro's "AiProtection" for blocking security threats at the network level.

We said in our review, "When it comes time to upgrade your router, the Asus RT-AX88U is more than worthy of consideration." At the time, the $350 pricetag was certainly an issue, but the router is now $100 below that. You can read our full thoughts here.
