Linksys Gaming Router Scares Your Opponents: Tattooed, QoS, A/B/G/NS

Call us wimps, but we'd hate to run into this router in a dark alley. This tattooed Wireless-N Router (WRT330N) is the first router designed especially for gamers. It has four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and one Gigabit WAN port. It uses a Network Optimizer to automatically prioritize latency-sensitive data—in other words, it'll analyze your network traffic and give gaming packets VIP status. Will it make you a better gamer? Hell no. Will it give you better network performance? That's what they're claiming. The router is rolling out today for $199.
