*Excuse my lack of computer knowledge in advance.
I am considering buying the RX500, (or really any of NETGEAR routers, just haven’t made my mind up), but I’m not sure one of these routers will actually substantially boost my internet connection.
I’m a competitive gamer on Xbox, and the need for quicker internet speed is aggravating me more and more everyday. I’m also wanting to begin Twitch streaming, but I know I need a decent internet speed for that- which I do NOT have
I’m constantly lag spiking at least 1-2 times in a single match, and I’ve been looking into buying a new WiFi extender, and as a passionate, nerd for video games, the NETGEAR RX500 quickly caught my attention.
When I download video games, updates, DLC, etc, my download speed varies around 1-6 Megabytes per second. My modem is located downstairs in my kitchen, and I play in my room upstairs, located about 20 feet horizontally and 15 feet vertically from the modem , (not sure if that affects my internet speed inside my room or not).
If I do purchase one of these routers, I don’t think I’ll be able to reach a USB cord from the modem to the router itself.
So with all that said, can someone tell me the best option? I desperately need a change in internet speed.
