Narrow down the available options based on the Xbox's compatibility requirements. Gaming experts seem to agree that there are a few brands of routers that perform the best. Asus, Linksys, and Buffalo wireless routers are among the highest performing, and they are all compatible with the Xbox 360.

It is important to remember that, if the router is not on the above list, it does not necessarily mean that it isn't compatible for operation with an Xbox 360. There are a number of routers available that will perform well with gaming consoles.

When in doubt, check the manufacturer's website for additional information on connectivity to the Xbox 360. Take note that most online advice assumes there is already an active connection in the home. Contact the manufacturer's customer support before purchasing a new device if problems are encountered. The router provider will be able to assist you with technical issues or, in some cases, replace the malfunctioning router.
