The Sitecom Wireless 300N XR Gigabit Gaming Router is just the thing for the gaming-obsessed and the ultra-serious power users who want to optimise their network and Internet performance.

The Sitecom router uses some serious software to recognise patterns within applications and automatically assigns priority to the applications that require the fastest response times to perform optimally and make the best use of bandwidth.The cunning software is called “StreamEngine” and gives you optimal wireless performance and efficiency for applications like voice-over IP, gaming, video streaming or downloads.

The functionality that ensures this quality of service runs automatically when you start up the router, so there is no extra software to install or special settings to configure. The Sitecom is 300N draft 2.0 enabled and has an ­integrated Gigabit switch that includes WPS (WiFi ­Protected Setup). This means that users can network wirelessly at speeds of up to 300Mbps in a secure environment without the hassle of a manual device setup. R1999 from www.btgames.co.za.

PROS
StreamEngine is a very powerful bit of software that manages the priority of applications.
CONS
It is a fairly expensive bit of kit.
