Gaming Features for more wins

STABILE YOUR PING

Anti-Buffer Bloat (ABB) is just a fancy way of saying you can create an express lane for gaming traffic. Using ABB and the XR500’s dual-core processor to sort through your networking and prioritize traffic, you won’t have to worry about lag ruining your day.

KICK LAG SPIKES TO THE CURB

With Advanced Quality of Service (QoS) backed by a 1 ghz dual-core processor, the XR500 adeptly prioritizes even the most congested home networking traffic. That means you’ll stay in the game and not in the queue.

NEVER FIGHT OVER BANDWIDTH

Now you can see who is using how much of your bandwidth and make adjustments on the fly with the Device Manager. Dial back, enhance, block any device on your home network, even those bandwidth vampires like streaming devices and voice operated home products.
