Up to 4.3x Faster than N Technology
With new, faster wireless technology, everyone in the family will be able to stream HD movies and play multiplayer games on their tablets, notebooks, and desktops, no matter where they are in the house.
The AC 1800 router employs AC wireless technology, which runs on both the 5 GHz "media" band and the 2.4 GHz "standard" band. The media band provides up to 1.3 Gbps while the standard band offers up to 300 Mbps**. This adds up to a 4.3x increase in speed when compared to N technology.
Enjoy Expanded Wi-Fi Coverage with Strong Signal
Using MultiBeam antenna technology, the AC 1800 lets you connect to the Internet on multiple computers or mobile devices from virtually anywhere in your home. By minimizing dead spots, the technology ensures a strong signal for bandwidth-intensive activities--even if you're accessing the Internet at a great distance from the router itself.
For example, you can stream HD video downstairs while your roommates or family members play online games upstairs.
Quick and Easy Installation with Simple Start App
Belkin's Simple Start browser-based setup interface makes installation painless and eliminates the need for fumbling with installation CDs. Use your tablet, smartphone, or computer--whichever you prefer--to set up your router.
