Product Description

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.

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.

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.

    Fast gaming router and Great price. 11/9/2015
    Mike G from Aurora, CO.  

    Works great. With a full house of internet users, you can prioritize users, making gaming faster. Great Product.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    Good deal! 10/12/2015
    Mako from Tallahassee FL  

    Good deal! I was having trouble with it until I upgraded the firmware. Easy to setup. Good GUI. Can't beat the range especially on N. Covers whole house (2 story 3100sq ft). Was considering 2 routers with my old setup but now it's not necessary.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    All good 10/9/2015

    I've been using my DGL-4500 since what seems like the dawn of time. With the exception of firmware issues years ago, it's been solid. So the DGL-5500 was the next logical step. It was a breeze to set up, has strong broadcast and decent speed, for less than a dinner for two at Applebee's. Overall I'm very satisfied. If it lasts half as long as its predecessor I'll be happy. It's good, but not great.

    HELPFUL?: Yes No

    good 12/10/2014
