Excellent performance for gaming?
We are a family of gamers. From Xbox 360, to internet browsing, online video streaming, to World of Warcraft, Runescape, you name it. It's on all the time everyday.
I need to know if this will be very fast for gaming. And I assume any router thats perfect for gaming is perfect for anything else like just browsing?

Yes, this router will be excellent for gaming. It is one of the most powerful home routers on the market today (along with the Cisco/Linksys E4200), and can route at gigabit speeds on both sides (internal LAN/external internet) to multiple clients with minimal latency.
I have one in a mixed Mac and Windows network, with two Xbox 360's, a network laser printer, a shared drive and so on and it has performed flawlessly.
It's also very easy to set up, especially for reserving IP addresses and managing port forwarding if you need to do that for any online gaming.
In short, it's a great router. I wish it had an extra couple of gigabit ports on the LAN side (it has three), but that's my only minor quibble with it.
