Tri-Stream 160 Boosts Bandwidth for Fastest 5GHz Band of Any Router*
Equipped with innovative Tri-Stream 160 technology, the WRT3200ACM delivers untouched, extreme Wi-Fi speeds that never lag. Not available on other Wi-Fi routers, Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band to power data-heavy activity with ultra-fast 2.6 Gbps Wi-Fi speeds.
The WRT3200ACM operates in a clear airspace denied to traditional routers thanks to Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certification from the FCC. This certification makes Tri-Stream 160 possible, and also triples the number of channels available at 80MHz.
MU-MIMO for Fast Speeds on Multiple Devices Simultaneously.
Thanks to MU-MIMO technology, the WRT3200ACM easily handles simultaneous high-bandwidth online activities at the same time and same speed. Multiple users can stream 4K/HD movies, play online games, listen to music, and download files without experiencing lag or buffering--at up to 3x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.
Open Source Firmware Unleashes Your Router’s Potential

Top Customer Reviews
The AC3200 very much resembles my previous router. One of the first things that I've noticed is that AC3200 does not have a small cooling fan that AC1900 had.... I think that the main reason for this is the fact that Linksys were able to make a nice improvement to the units heatsink.
The set up was very user friendly.... I normally set it up manually, instead of running the included set up CD. Linksys makes the set up experience very straight forward.... the router was connected in no time at all. However, before setting up all the WiFi devices, I checked for any possible updates. Right away it indicated that there was a new Firmware. The update went extremely smooth and much quicker than on any of my previous models.
Aftet updating, it was time to connect all my wireless devices. Again, the process went smoothly. The Linksys WRT AC3200 has more than enough capabilities to run the following devices: Three WiFi cameras, three Smart TV's, 5 PC's, 4 iPads, 4 iPhones, Amazon Tap, Amazon FireTV, WeMo switches, VIOP phones, WiFi thermostat and two Linksys range extenders. Due to an extremely large house and a huge back yard, the two Linksys extenders (RE7000 and RE6500), push the signal way beyond any routers capabilities.... That is until I tested WRT AC3200.
After benchmarking AC3200, it became very apparent that this unit pushes an extremely strong signal.... at an incredibly consistent rate. To further test it's capabilities, I decided to disconnect both range extenders and proceeded to further test this routers capabilities. The results were incredible. The signal strength was phenomenal..... it penetrated walls and floors without much loss. In other words, large files downloaded much, much quicker and Amazon & Netflix streaming was almost instant. With almost 30 devices, this router performed more than satisfactory! Very powerful and very consistent.... is the best way to describe it.
On a side note.... with the upcoming MU-MIMO technology, this unit will surely surpass anybody's expectations. Once again, Linksys comes up with a true performer!
One thing to note here, I never realized just how much difference a good router like the AC3200 from Linksys makes a difference. I am used to waiting a few moments for wireless devices to connecct and finally aquire internet access, but with this linksys, the wait time is virtually gone. The moment you touch your device the internet is connected and ready.
The speed and quickness didn't end there... With some speed tests showing Mbps approaching the max theoretical speeds capable on the supported bands. My fastest laptop connected up to the linksys 5ghz band through two walls and 6 meters away at the fastest link speed it could manage with 5 bars of signal. Then it maxed out my internet speed test of over a quarter gigabits per second without even causing lag on my other devices.
