The present small wheel detector at ATLAS will be replaced with a New Small Wheel (NSW) detector to handle the increase in data rates and harsh radiation environment expected at the LHC. This NSW detector will contain eight layers of small-strip thin-gap chambers, which will be used for both muon trigger and precision tracking. A signal packet Router board is needed to handle all trigger data and serves as a very fast switching-yard between incoming active TDS signals and a limited number of optoelectronic outputs. The components of a router prototype have been tested in a radiation environment to meet ATLAS radiation tolerance criteria. We will present the design and the test result of the router prototype.
