Ready to throw your crappy router out the window? If you’re tired of resetting it every night in hopes of better Internet, the latest Amazon deal is for you.

For Wednesday only, select Netgear Wi-Fi routers are up to 60 percent off. The sale is also offering Wi-Fi extenders and security cameras, in case you’re looking to beef up your fort at home.

While it’s not as exciting as gaming gear, it could make your gaming experience better (read: faster), which is arguably more important.

You can check out the whole sale here, but here are a few notable items up for grabs.

1) Netgear Nighthawk X4S


This high-end router usually costs about $270, but the sale offers it for $214. The real deal, however, is the bundle pack, which essentially throws in a 1TB external hard drive to the regular router price for free.

Price: $215-$270

2) Netgear AC1600 Wi-Fi cable modem router


Instead of paying monthly fees to Internet providers, you could purchase a cable modem and router-in-one for one discounted price. That could be one less reason to have to listen to your cable company’s hold music.

Price: $129.99 (regularly $169.99)

3) Netgear AC1200 Wi-Fi range extender


No more dead Wi-Fi zones in the house. This small device plugs into a wall outlet and boosts Wi-Fi range on any standard router to speeds up to 1200 MB per second, so you can get back to actually enjoying your game or streaming a movie.

Price: $67.99 (regularly $100)

4) Netgear ProSAFE WAC720 wireless access point


This dual band 802.11ac access point runs at speeds that will keep your business running. Its speed and coverage are ideal for companies that depend on heavy, secure Internet usage, but can’t afford the hefty price tag of an enterprise-level network. Small businesses can get a great deal Wednesday as the WAC720 is $100 off.

Price: $199.99 (regularly $299.99)
