The Gaming Router delivers Dual Band Technology for intelligent, versatile, interference-free bandwidth. With 802.11ac you can have up to 1300Mbps wireless speed performance.

And while your home gains all the cutting-edge benefits of AC, the Gaming Router is also compatible with all of your current Wireless N products. It also comes with 4 Gigabit ports for connecting Ethernet-enabled devices.

The integrated StreamBoost QoS engine intelligently prioritizes bandwidth. StreamBoost manages your connection automatically, and gives you the power to manually route more bandwidth to a specific activity - or even to a specific device - intuitively creating optimal allocation. That means lag free gaming, crystal clear FaceTime calls, and ultra smooth HD streaming.

With its built-in high-powered amplifier, you can enjoy wireless coverage throughout your home with the Wireless AC1300 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router. The DGL-5500 also provides the added benefit of remote network management and remote file access via mydlink Cloud Services.
