It may look like an up­turned ta­ble but the new­est net­work­ing de­vice from Linksys could prove an im­por­tant peace­keeper in videostream­ing, game­play­ing, gad­get-filled house­holds. The gi­ga­bit router is the first to fea­ture MU-MIMO tech­nol­ogy that bet­ter han­dles wi-fi traf­fic by pri­ori­tis­ing de­mand­ing ser­vices (like Presto or Net­flix videostream­ing) over low-de­mand ser­vices (your phone’s Twit­ter stream). The router can also pro­vide a se­ri­ous wire­less speed boost on the 5GHz band and of­fers a USB 3.0 con­nec­tion for fast net­work stor­age and smart cus­tomi­sa­tions in its soft­ware. On the down­side, it won’t pro­vide the same speed on 2.4GHz and it’s pricier than other routers.
