Netgear XR500 and the X6S Tri-Band Range Extender

I am a streamer and need the best options for the X6S. I have my gaming and streaming pc pluged into the X63. What would the best options be in both the XR500 and X6S? Thank you for your help

The XR500 is only a two radio wifi router:

• AC2600 (800Mbps @2.4GHz—256QAM support +1733Mbps @5Ghz 11ac)† • Simultaneous Dual Band WiFi - Tx/Rx 4x4 (2.4GHz)+ 4x4 (5GHz) • 4x4 11ac 80MHz + 2x2-160/80+80MHz

 

You would be best served and take advantage of the 3 band wifi extender to get into a 3 radio router. Take advantage of the 3 radios on the extender for max performances. Something like a R8000 or R7960P are tri band routers.

I would really recommend if possible that you have the gaming/streaming PC connected to ethernet if possible. This will give you more stability. What are the speeds you pay for or expect? What quality are you streaming in and the bitrate required to keep that quality consistent?
