What can handle 2 Directv Now, HSN, 2 CBS All Access all streaming plus downloading from google with IDM without any buffering?

Recommended Posts

Can any router handle this? If it depends on connection speed what kind of tier do you need please ?


BTW IDM = Internet Download Manager.


Hi Tim, welcome to the forum! It's hard to give an accurate answer to this since you'd need to try this precise combination in order to find out. Given that you're streaming on two devices and downloading at the same time it would be advisable to have probably above 50mbps to handle it - though again it's hard to say how much bandwidth will be in use in this exact scenario.


The Anti-Bufferbloat feature on the Nighthawk XR500 is designed to handle streaming, downloading and gaming intuitively - it would likely be your best bet in this case.
