With more and more devices being smart and connected to the internet of things, it’s possible that your current router might start feeling the strain. So if you’re in the market for a new router that can handle it all (and then some), check out the Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Tri-Band Quad-Stream WiFi router.

As the name alone suggests, it’s the crème de la crème of home routers that is capable of the fastest speeds of up to 5.3Gbps. Its Tri-Band Wi-Fi allows more devices to connect via Wi-Fi, and its Quad Stream technology delivers up to four data streams per Wi-Fi band. The Netgear Nighthawk X8 has 4 active antennas and 4 internal antennas to amplify and maximize range, a first when it comes to home routers.

It uses dynamic QoS technology to prioritize bandwidth by application and devices, ensuring that devices are always getting the best possible Wi-Fi connection available at any given time. And although we didn’t include it in our list of the top 3 best routers for PS4 and Xbox One — because of its price —, it’s one of the best gaming routers on the market today.
