You are a gamer. A streamer. A competitor. A watcher. A consumer. You are all these things and more. Connect with something powerful enough to keep up with you. D-Link’s Gaming Router features powerful traffic shaping technology that gives you real-time control over your bandwidth so that – whatever you’re into – you can do more and lag less.

 

Why You Need It

Your Current Router is Doing You Wrong

We've all experienced it: gaming, interrupted. Room mates streaming movies, family members downloading large files, significant others using Skype or Facetime -- this is your bandwidth! The lifeblood of your gaming experience! Protect it while ensuring that everyone else in your home gets the best possible online experiences with D-Link's Gaming Router with StreamBoost.

 

QoS has been promising to solve the problem of multiple, simultaneous web users for years, without ever fully delivering. So when we got our hands on StreamBoost we were as skeptical as you likely are. Until we experienced the performance. StreamBoost isn't QoS -- it's something much more powerful. A sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine intelligently manages bandwidth in ways traditional QoS engines can't touch. And because it is both app-aware and device-aware, you can be confident that the indignity and inconvenience of lag has become a thing of the past.

How It Works

What is StreamBoost Anyway?

The next big thing is always around the corner. And whether it's an expansive MMO, a competitive FPS, or the newest RTS, the demands made on your limited bandwidth often create interruptions in packet delivery and a poor gaming session. StreamBoost automatically adjusts and controls Internet bandwidth using a sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine. Much more than a simple QoS, Traffic Shaping actually reserves segments of your Internet bandwidth when the application is detected by the router. With a unique cloud-based updating and crowd-sourced profile creation system, the Gaming Router is always evolving to offer the best experiences for the newest apps, games and devices. Background applications like large file downloads, Cloud Storage SYNCs, and system updates no longer have to be suspended for game or movie time. What does this mean? Happy gamers. Happy roommates. And the best online experience you've ever had.
