The marketing writes itself:

"Do you have to kick your kids of the network for company Zoom calls? 
You need this brand spanking new router!"

I've been trying to explain to friends that are now saddled with video 
calls all the time what the problem is, but it's really hard to point 
and say "buy this router". There are a few out there that feature it, 
but they're about $200 which is pretty spendy. Considering that this is 
just a OS module, your basic $50 router should be able to support it 
without any problem too.
