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 DGL-5500 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.

We’ve all experienced it: gaming, interrupted. Room mates streaming movies, family members downloading large files, significant others using Skype or Facetime — this is your bandwidth! The lifeblood of your gaming experience! Protect it while ensuring that everyone else in your home gets the best possible online experiences with D-Link’s Gaming Router with StreamBoost.

D-Link DGL-5500 Gaming Router AC1300 with StreamBoost™ Technology

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.

Product Reviews

1.This Router Is A Game Changer! From:mrtuneup2

I don’t usually leave reviews on products. I couldn’t help myself this router is amazing!!! I love the form factor, the user interface, & most of all the Stream Boost Technology. My wife and I play video games on the weekends. I would experience lag every once in a while. I installed the DGL-5500 into my network. I have almost 50 devices on my network and my wife and I are the only ones using the network. I did expect it to improve my game playing experience as far as no more LAG. This router made my game playing feel really smooth, fluid and fast. When I thought it was good before when it wasn’t lagging. I was listening to other people complaining about lag and my wife and I never experience any. If you are a gamer this router is a must have. Stream Boost is like QOS on steroids.

2.A great router that fix my range problem From:Isabella

Just tried out this router to replace my Netgear router and it fixed my signal problem. My Netgear router has a poor signal strength in my bedrooms at the back of the house, but D-Link has a very good signal strength that fixed my problem. Love it!

3.ProEasy to Use, Easy to install, Fast

I recently got this router to replace my old one which I had for over 5 years. I wanted something good coverage since my old router wasn’t reaching the ends of my house. Set up was quick and simple and I was up in a matter of minutes. I tested out the coverage and it is amazing. Covers my entire house with no problem. My download speeds improved from immensely. Overall the router is great for my needs and I couldn’t be happier.
