That's ok, Streamboost can still classify the traffic from a non-detected application, ensuring the very best experience. Intelligent control of bandwidth resources, means the DGL-5500 Gaming Router AC1300 provides a lag and stutter free gaming experience.

Why You Need It

You are a gamer. A streamer. A competitor. A watcher. A consumer. You are all these things and more. Connect with something powerful enough to keep up with you. D-Link's Gaming Router features powerful traffic shaping technology that gives you real-time control over your bandwidth so that - whatever you're into - you can do more and lag less.

  • StreamBoost- Intelligent control of bandwidth resources featuring automatic application detection and prioritizing devices
  • Gigabit Ethernet- Four Gigabit Ethernet ports for superior device connectivity
  • Wireless AC1300- Offering dual-band speeds up to 450Mbps (2.4GHz) and 867Mbps (5GHz) for maximum throughput
  • Backward compatibility- with 802.11a/g/n devices
  • Setup Wizard- for quick and easy configuration


Your Current Router is Doing You Wrong! We've all experienced it: gaming, interrupted. Roommates streaming movies, family members downloading large files, significant others using Skype or Facetime -- this is your bandwidth! The lifeblood of your gaming experience! Protect it while ensuring that everyone else in your home gets the best possible online experiences with D-Link's Gaming Router with StreamBoost.

QoS has been promising to solve the problem of multiple, simultaneous web users for years, without ever fully delivering. So when we got our hands on StreamBoost we were as skeptical as you likely are. Until we experienced the performance. StreamBoost isn't QoS -- it's something much more powerful. A sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine intelligently manages bandwidth in ways traditional QoS engines can't touch. And because it is both app-aware and device-aware, you can be confident that the indignity and inconvenience of lag has become a thing of the past.

How It Works

What is StreamBoost Anyway?

The next big thing is always around the corner. And whether it's an expansive MMO, a competitive FPS, or the newest RTS, the demands made on your limited bandwidth often create interruptions in packet delivery and a poor gaming session. StreamBoost automatically adjusts and controls Internet bandwidth using a sophisticated Traffic Shaping engine. Much more than a simple QoS, Traffic Shaping actually reserves segments of your Internet bandwidth when the application is detected by the router. With a unique cloud-based updating and crowd-sourced profile creation system, the Gaming Router is always evolving to offer the best experiences for the newest apps, games and devices. Background applications like large file downloads, CloudStorage SYNCs, and system updates no longer have to be suspended for game or movie time. What does this mean? Happy gamers. Happy roommates. And the best online experience you've ever had.

The Power of StreamBoost

Your Current Router is Doing You Wrong

Your router's QoS engine has been ignoring you -- what you're into, what you do online, who you are. Traditional QoS treats your gaming, movies, Skype chats, and downloads all the same. It sees these activities and delivers equal bandwidth to each, ensuring that your home is forced to deal with mediocre experiences marred by lagging and buffering. This is the QoS you've come to know: a solution that fails to live up to its promise.

StreamBoost is not QoS

StreamBoost is a sophisticated Traffic Shaping tool that elegantly responds to each app, each device, each task, managing and allocating bandwidth to ensure absolutely optimal performance. StreamBoost is app-aware and device-aware, giving it the intelligence to recognize and effectively react to whatever you, your rommates or your family love to do online. It's what you always expected from QoS, delivered in a stream-lined, hassle-free way. Simply put, it's the best way ever conceived to handle multi-user Internet experiences. And you'll never look back.
