    Suggestions for a new router

    Have a netgear wrg614.
    our cable internet is over 10mbps. However a person in the house constantly downloads and it seems it is almost impossible sometimes to use the internet, even if he is only downloading say 200kbps.

    we have 4 computers hooked up via wireless, and a ps3.

    Would a newer router be able to handle this better?
    Main: AMD Ryzen R7 3700X, Asus Crosshair Hero VI, Nvidia 2070 Super, 16GB 3200MHz Ram, NVMe, EVGA SuperNOVA 750 P2 PLATINUM, Lian Li PC-V2120

    Macbook Pro 16", Intel i9, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M, 16GB Ram, 1TB NVMe

    Security System "NVR": Intel i7 9700k, Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac, 16GB ram, Seasonic FOCUS+ 550 Platinum, Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX, Cryorig H7

    Newer generation routers do have more horsepower, fasters CPUs and more RAM to deal with more concurrent connections than prior generation routers.

    Some also have QoS services...to prioritize certain types of traffic so other types don't bog them down as much.

    DLinks DIR-655, and DGL-4500, are todays two top performing home grade routers.

    Or...built yourself a linux based router distro that will handle anything you can throw at it.
