Top 3 Best gaming routers

Do I recommend having a gaming router? Yes, I do, especially if you play fast-paced games as I do. These games include Rocket League, Fortnite, Battlefield, and Call Of Duty. I have used a fair few gaming routers and will give a list of my top 3 gaming routers.

Wow, the name of this router is a mouthful. Asus is an established brand in the gaming community and their routers do live up to the high standards that they have set for themselves.
