Hi all,

We are running with 100 PC's of gaming cafe. At present scenario, we are using Fortigate 100D router for 100 gaming PC's. We have two ISP connections 500 + 350 Mbs.

Our clients are playing most of games are World of Warcraft (Wow), Counter Strike global offensive (CS:GO), League of legends, PUBG, Fortnite game, Dota 2 and all types of steam and origin games.

couple of months we have too much lags in the games. We are using high end PC's with latest spec such as intel i7 8th generation processor, VGA 1080Ti graphics cards, 16 RAM, SSD etc.

Kindly please suggest best gaming router suitable for above mentioned games.

Looking forward your valuable response. Thank you

In this class of networking.

It's time to call up Juniper, Cisco and the big companies in this space. I think even TP-Link now has an Enterprise division.

Thank you for reply. We already tested with Cisco router but that not good for gaming industry.

Keep shopping.

There are now many networking companies out there.

But let me digress here. I've yet to not hear "lag!" from a group of gamers.

There will always be some lag but let's pull up the spec on your 100D at
I see that if you had that and that alone you could be topping out it's performance.

I'd chat with your IT staff about splitting the network to use a second 100D since you do appear to have 2 ISP feeds.

Again you suggesting same router. At present we are using only one fortigate 100D router.

Wait a second.

Who runs your IT staff? I see I noted a possible area you are topping out your existing router and since what you have may be what you know how ot manage I thought to check out the specs and see if there was an issue.

Don't take this wrong but once in a while I find companies that try to get by without any network or IT staff. I can't sub in for those folk but will discuss possible issues.

In your last reply I get the feeling you are in one of those companies that got rid of the staff.

PS. Something else I run into from time to time.

I also run into IT staffers that won't make the calls or arrange meetings with the companies that do this sort of work. My networking background is mostly SOHO and cellular networks. I was on design teams in the early days of cellular data networks.

It's odd to read your reply about Cisco. They make gear that powers the Internet so they have gear to make this happen. Maybe not at the price you want but most of the time the IT staffers don't want to invest the time.
