As we become ever so more connected, Wi-Fi has become one of the most important aspects of our modern lives. That said, if you’re seeking a deal on a router that can help you get the most out of your internet speeds and games, look no further. Amazon is currently running an offer where you can grab the TP-Link AC5400 wireless gaming router for $168 off its usual price — but only through the end of April 3.

This deal is bringing the price of the TP-Link AC5400 router down from $300 to $168 — a savings of roughly 44 percent. This futuristic looking little router is one of our all-time favorites. In fact, we found it as one of the best high-performance routers of 2019. It sports a 1,000 Mbps 2.4GHz band and two 2,167 Mbps 5GHz bands. These specifications mean that the router is best for getting the most out of streaming 4K videos on Netflix, and also playing online games like Fortnite.

There’s even multi-user support from Mu-Mimo technology onboard, which allows for high-speed connections without interruption or lag. As a bonus, the TP-link AX5400 also has a feature that allows it to function with Amazon Alexa and If This Then That smart home software for easier device control. For extra piece of mind, you can use built-in software to set up a personal VPN and create privacy on your Wi-Fi network.

If you’re looking for a router that is slightly cheaper — but offers somewhat similar networking performance to the TP-Link AC5400 — Amazon still has you covered. You can grab the TP-Link AC3150 for $128 instead of the usual price of $219. This router features a powerful dual-core 1.4GHz CPU, as well as NitroQAM support and 4-Stream technology. It is capable of delivering speeds of up to 3,150MBps over its dual 2.4GHZ and 5GHz bands.

Other TP-Link products such as the Deco-Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (normally $180, now $100),  as well as the Kasa Smart WiFi Light Bild (normally $20 now $16), are also discounted in this sale.

TP-Link rolls out its first midrange router sporting Wi-Fi 6 software specs
TP-Link's AX50 is a Wi-Fi 6 router that delivers tremendous value.

Earlier this week, networking hardware manufacturer TP-Link rolled out a new home router shipping with Wi-Fi 6 capabilities, the Archer AX50. This new entry drops into the company's burgeoning Wi-Fi 6 product lineup between its little brother, the modest Archer AX10, and its hulking older cousins, the Archer AX6000 and AX11000, giving people looking to increase their home network speeds a dependable midrange choice.

Currently, the array of Wi-Fi 6 routers make for slim pickings, but although TP-Link has not yet announced the price of its new Archer AX50, if past models in the company's Archer line are any indication, it could provide a more affordable alternative to the almost exclusively high-end offerings launched by competitors so far. The Intel chipset at the heart of the AX50 allows it to tap into all the marquee features of the Wi-Fi 6 standard, including multi-user, multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) antenna transmission for handling more devices at once, target wake time (TWT) for battery optimization, and orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) for making more efficient use of radio spectrum, among many others.
