Netgear has just launched its entry-level gaming router and it's called the Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR300.

The Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR300 is Wi-Fi 5 AC1750-class dual-band router. This means it delivers speeds of up to 450Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 1,300Mbps on its 5GHz network.

Like most routers of its class, it has a single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports that you can use to connect to your gaming desktop and console.

But what makes Netgear's gaming routers stand out is its use of DumaOS, a router OS specially designed for gaming.

Using DumaOS, players can use the Geo-Filter map to configure the XR300 router to block servers and gamers that are far away. DumaOS also intelligently prioritizes gaming traffic above all others.

The Netgear Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR300 is available now from all major retailers like Harvey Norman, Challenger, and Best Denki, and it's priced at S$399.
