THE ONE AND ONLY WRT

Bring ultra-fast AC WiFi to your home with the one and only WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Open Source WiFi Router. Equipped with Tri-Stream 160 and premium MU-MIMO technologies, this open-source router delivers blazing-fast, uninterrupted dual-band WiFi speeds to multiple devices at the same time.

TRI-STREAM TECHNOLOGY

Equipped with innovative Tri-Stream 160 technology, the WRT3200ACM delivers untouched, extreme WiFi speeds that never lag. Not available on other WiFi routers, Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band to power data-heavy activity with ultra-fast 2.6 Gbps WiFi speeds.

DFS CERTIFIED

Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certification from the FCC not only allows operation at 160MHz enabling Tri-Stream160, but it also triples the channels available at 80MHz, so your router can operate in the clearest airspace that other WiFi routers aren't allowed.

MU-MIMO PROVIDES STUNNING MULTI-DEVICE PERFORMANCE

Thanks to MU-MIMO technology, the WRT3200ACM router can handle even the most bandwidth-intensive environments. MU-MIMO builds upon longtime broadcasting cornerstones--such as spatial multiplexing, beamforming, and scheduling algorithms--to boost overall throughput and distribute WiFi bandwidth fairly between devices. Each connected client device receives its own dedicated data stream, so users won't have to compete with one another for bandwidth. Multiple users can simultaneously engage in 4K video streaming, play online games, and perform other data-intensive tasks without latency or buffering.

Linksys WRT3200ACM - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated4.43 out of5 by145.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster, Stronger. More to love.Upgraded from a WRT1900ACS and I have to say, this router is a mighty improvement. I wasn’t expecting faster speed out of an unchanged internet connection but lo and behold, that’s exactly what I got. And as an added bonus, there’s a noticeable boost to the coverage range. Areas in my home where the connection used to drop? Not a problem anymore. Upgrading was a snap using the backup and restore tool, making the router swap quick and eliminating any usual configuration hassles. Everything just worked exactly like before. Couldn’t have asked for a smoother process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wireless RouterI bought this to replace an ASUS router that was giving me issues. I am very happy with the Linksys AC3200. It was easy to setup and works very well. I have better coverage in my home and no dead spots in a 2600 sq ft home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality RouterI have been using this router for about two weeks. I am very impressed with Linksys products. From the day the router arrived in carefully engineered packaging to ensure safe arrival to the simple straightforward setup instructions to flawless integration into my network, I could find no fault. While the aesthetics leave something to be desired, I am confident that the design was prioritized to achieve maximum performance. I have over 12 devices on my network spread over the 2000 square feet of my home. All devices operate efficiently with adequate signal strength and bandwidth … even those that have previously failed regularly with other routers. The IOS app is simple and allows remote monitoring of the router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Price Frustrations!I bought this 2 months ago and have nothing but WiFi signal drop. I use Sonos, Smart TV's, Xbox and many other wireless devices. I constsntly have to reset router multiple times a day to reconnect all devices back to router. Forums and call in to Customer Service has resulted in "Try ThisTry That" with no true solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router, strong signalI’ve had this router for a week and it is a vast improvement over my last one. Quick and easy setup with my modem. Strong signal throughout my 3 bedroom house and none of my devices buffer while trying to watch movies or tv shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good valuei was having streaming problems with my old router, so i got a new linksys router to solve that. got this one installed just before xmas and my 4k streaming tv now works great. very easy to install and get set up, nice form factor but i was surprised at it being kind of big.i liked the front panel indicators, gives a good indication of what's going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Router slows & 5G stops working over time, flakyThis router seemed great at first but then got slower and slower, then I noticed that 5Ghz was no working any more (light even went off) so I reset. This happens regularly. Also settings are unreliable. I have DHCP client reservations set, but they frequently get dropped or mixed up, which is weird. Overall, this has been a very unreliable router and not one I would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete FailureI bought this device on December 23, 2017. I must say the Wi-Fi signal was great, but the general performance is a complete failure. the router will work for few hours and suddenly there is no internet signal despite of the existence of Wi-Fi connection and there is internet connection between the computer and router through an Ethernet cable. When I reset it it will work again for few hours and back to the same problem.I called Linksys customer service and they decided to replace my router with a new one.Mahir Nouraldine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firmware out of date for Windows 10I have had this router for over a year now and it has worked wonderfully. Just recently I purchased a 6TB drive to attach to the router as a file sharing drive on my wireless system.Windows 10 could not access the drive because Windows 10 has stopped using the 30 year old SMB1 protocol because it is not secure.In todays cyber world, security requires a new standard. I haven't found any firmware updates to this router that used SMB2. Will have to wait to see if Linksys will update the firmware beyond the current Ver 1.0 on their web site.You will be happy with this router unless you want to share a drive through this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-fast, reliable router!My 5-year old N-router stopped working. I found this one at a reasonable price, only a little more than an equivalent. I will admit I had to use the 800 number for help to get it working, but in 30 minutes, I was connecting to my Samsung (Barnes and Noble) e-Book, and getting fast downloads to it (music), AND I believe this router, with the 1-year 800 number support, will meet unanticipated future needs, which is why I sprang for the extra cost. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it especially because of the apparent knowledge of the support team and international supportability, which is a possible future need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Powerhouse!I live in a ranch-style home, and due to poor planning on my part, I located the router not in the middle of the house, but on one end. At the other end of the house, streaming videos was almost impossible. Rather than re-wiring to the center of the house, I decided to upgrade my router to the WRT3200. I can now stream videos at the other end of the house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installBought this to replace WRT1900 which was working fine. I have 6 items connected at all times. Both wife and I work from home and need reliable/fast connection. She's plugged into router but i'm at other end of house using Wifi. I'd say i'm a good 60-70 feet away and around 3 different corners in the house. (ranch style home)I immediately noticed connection to the 5GHZ was faster. I had 2 bars and now 5. Our isp says we get 100Mbps. My wifi connection went from around 50 to 85 but i've noticed at times (as you can see) it drops off. Probably not the routers fault. We're out in the country using Wave Broadband. (only choice)The 2.4 side is a very strong connection throughout house, back yard and garage. Even across the street. I have range extender for that. I use a max stream AC600 wifi micro usb adapater for nic. It's by my feet under the desk. Probably not best location. Overall- The router is a bit spendy but works very well. Happy user.I rated speed a 4 star, only due to the wifi to this PC- Maybe Linksys will send me a new dual band range extender... :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great improvement in WiFi speed and coverageI live in a house built in 1920 and have always had issues with dead zones. This router seems to solve that problem and gives me great wifi strength throughout my house. When paired with Velop in bridge mode it makes coverage even better and faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super simple setupThis router is very easy to setup. The guided setup makes it easy and it also includes a firmware updating process that is also super simple for anyone to follow. I have almost 20 devices in my home and they all connected without issue or lagging. I also bought the more powerful antennas to boost the signal and now I have a stronger signal than ever before in the other end of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed issues with WRT1900ACThis replaces a WRT1900AC. The 1900AC had severe issues when auto-changing channels, the WAP acting as if it was rebooting. All devices would disconnect and a minute later re-connect.The WRT3200AC took care of that, not an issue with that problem.The MU-MIMO is great, I get full bars whether upstairs, downstairs, or on the front porch or back yard.I live in the city, in a townhome, built with plaster walls. The plaster is spread over a metallic grid, and the house is brick. Always had issues with performance, with previous routers.The AC3200, has resolved all of that. When changing from one location to another, i.e. back yard, my device will initially show, less bars, and a few seconds later it reverts to full bars. I presume that is MU-MIMO kicking in and focusing the beam.I love this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Connect all the thingsThis router is awesome. It is very fast. We have two phones, three tablets, an Apple TV, three Nintendo DSs, two laptops and a Nest outdoor camera. The majority of witch run at the same time and we never have threwput issues. It has beam forming tech to make sure your devises get the best signal available. If you are into open source firmware, you can do that too. Bottom line, if you need to upgrade your router get this one and be set for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WRT 3200 ACM routerI received the Linksys WRT 3200 ACM router. In the box was the router, antennas, power adapter ,Ethernet cable, quick start guide and a disk with the user manual on it. It cost $249.99. It is advertised as a dual band 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz. http://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-WRT3200ACM/ I removed my old router and installed the new one. After powering back up, I had internet right away.I would suggest that if you are thinking about buying this router to get a 5Ghz band that you call technical support and ask, will this router work with my PC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No technical support for over 11 days.I purchased router and modem from Linksys site in January 2017. After 10 months, router connectivity is dropping up to 10X per day. I have contacted Linksys help and am still waiting for resolution for over 11 days. In the meantime, my home office productivity is poor, my home security and other home automation items are down. My cell phone charges are building due to no wifi. I have done everything Linksys requests and maintained detailed logs. All help desk personnel and technicians are pleasant and tell me they understand my frustration. However, I still have an expensive router with unreliable service. I expected better from Linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router!!This is by far the easiest router I've ever set up. This router is installed behind a late model ATTUverse/Pace router. Setup was a breeze and it's performance is remarkable. WiFi is faster than anything I've ever used. No more lagging when internet is loading or switching pages. In addition, the router's range is consistent through out our home and into the yard. Cell phones no longer switch between WiFi and 4G LTE when inside house, garage, or in the yard around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless setup and configuration!I was excited to get this product in my hands and connected to my network. Right away when I logged in, I was able to check for any updates and apply them. I was able to configure the network and addressing all within about 15-20 minutes.I like playing with my home network, constantly throw a wrench in the works and fix the issues; and with the addition of a new router, it brought everything down - LOL. I immediately connected my modem to the AC3200, powered the modem on and let it sync up, then powered up the router and connected right away. I then took my main router, and made it a wired access point. So, here I am in my office, with the new router and having everything in this room blaze along online, and my family in the other side of the house moving just as fast as me. We were streaming 4k material and listening to music all through the house.I then took my Linksys range extender and configured it to the router and placed the extender on my back patio and BOOM!, streaming my music just fine.Then I brought everything down again, and configured my original network back up, and this time, made the Linksys AC3200 a wired bridge to my office - I had no conflicts or slowed response to my work. I then reconfigured it to be a wireless bridge for my office and put my laptop, workstation, tv, casting device on the wireless network - all working flawlessly. Currently, I have it configured as a wireless repeater. The signal is strong enough that my son (upstairs over my office) and my buddy in the garage, and my wife in the backyard (through our brick wall) are all getting wifi and working fine.I am so impressed with the ease of access and configuration of this item, I may very well replace my main router with this item to run my network; and demote my main router to an access point. Linksys has always provided strong products that it doesn't take a systems analyst to configure. Also, Linksys is always improving on their interface to be more robust but not difficult!I love this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GD Review of WRT3200ACMI installed this router approximately 3 weeks ago and have been very happy with the unit. I de-installed my old router and installed the High Gain antennas on this router. Started it up and within about 20 minutes my network was back up and fully operational. Applications which access the internet during startup and starting up faster and going thru the internet connection process quicker than before. Using IE or Chrome web browsers open to the home page and load much faster without any delays. Using wireless seems to be faster than before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great performanceI am really enjoying my new Linksys WRT3200ACM router.Internet connection speeds are the best. My laptop is connecting to the router at 1170Mbps (the best I’ve ever seen). Our various wireless devices are used throughout the house and we haven’t experienced any dead zones. We maintain good connection speeds everywhere.I have Apple TV and a Blu-ray player connected via Ethernet to the router. I have not experienced any lag or buffering, just smooth video. I also have external storage connected to the USB 3.0 port.Gaming is also superb on the router. My ping times are great and I get excellent play.I am very pleased with the performance of this router!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and smooth!!!!!I have had this unit for about 3 weeks now and I am really impressed. I was looking to replace my wrt1900 with something that could handle multiple devices more easily. This unit seems to do that and does it quickly!! When I think about how many devices use Wi-Fi in my home it's astonishing(2 xbox ones,1 ps 4, 2 laptops, 4+phones etc...). In my house range has always been an issue the 3200 has great range I am not even using my range extender!! The WRT3200acm makes all these things run fast and smooth(meaning no resets!!) I am really pleased with this device as with all my Linksys products and their performance is great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing ReliabilityThis router was a breeze to set up & install. After installation, signal remained strong & consistent throughout my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ProductI received my router and set it up without ANY difficulties. I have definitely noticed a speed increase and signal strength. I using it for 3 levels of the house without any dropped signals. I was particularly pleased with the set up. I took the cables from the old router and plugged them into the new one...fired up the system...and followed the onscreen instructions. All the items in our home connected without a problem and are working great. This is the best router yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Network Load... No problem!I have a heavily taxed network with over 100 smart devices. This router held up very well to the heavy load requirements. With all the hubs and smart bulbs, phones, tv, extenders and everything rose this router rarely has gone down. The tri-band frequency really helps out in times of high network traffic and the latency on my devices was minimal. It handles itself better than the Nighthawk R8000. The Linksys software made it easier to setup than most others that I have owned. It is a great router and I would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast RouterI received the Linksys WRT 3200 ACM router. In the box was the router, antennas, power adapter ,Ethernet cable, quick start guide and a disk with the user manual on it. It cost $249.99. It is advertised as a dual band 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz. http://www.linksys.com/us/p/P-WRT3200ACM/ I removed my old router and installed the new one. After powering back up, I had internet right away. I like this router very much. It is faster than my old Linksys E2000 and Linksys E3000. I would recommend this router.I would suggest that if you are thinking about buying this router to get a 5Ghz band that you call technical support and ask, will this router work with my PC. You need to have a dual band NIC that supports 802.11ac or get a USB adapter for 5Ghz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY Pleasantly surprised!Have hi-end Asus router, and I really only purchased this to load open source firmware and use OpenVPN. I am nearly in AWE of how good the stock firmware is, and mostly how insanely fast it is compared to my Asus, Netgear, TP-Link and Apple Extreme routers. Looks really nice as well, retro and modern. My throughput speeds are all high, mostly NAS to NAS, or workstation. I have a hi-end Windows 10 worktation with the hi-end Asus PC-88 quad band card, it connects at 1.3 Ghz from 15 feet away. My Hackintosh has the top end Hackintosh Bluetooth/802.11ac card in it, and I get a solid 1.1 Ghz. My Macbkook Pro connects at 1.3. All nearby over 5Ghz band. Everything else in the house, including phones, tablets, PLEX gear is on the 2.4 Ghz band, and it is solid. Going to add the matching 8 port switch (wish they had a $400 8 port 10 GbE!)!

You can reboot/restart the router, turn Off completely removing the Power for hours and still no luck. It turns on when it wants.. Yes, with latest firmware, yes, move channels around to channels not conflicting w/ other houses. The 2.4ghz band is still good but the 5ghz it's just gone.. :o( Use Acrylic to check SSID, channels other houses are on, speeds, etc. and gave you a second chance buy replacing with another unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router Improvement over 1900The 3200 router is definitely an improvement over my previous router, the 1900. I've been getting a stronger 5Ghz signal ever since installing it, although the standard 2.4 signal is also excellent. Setup was easy, and I was even able to use the 1900's original power adapter. Great router. I noticed a slight increase in my speed, not significant although I did get a 4 point improvement in ping (consistently). As far as distance functionality I didn't notice an improvement over the AC1900 but it already has good coverage for a 5600 sqft home with two floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific in every way.I have been using only Linksys routers for as long as I can remember. My first one was a Linksys WRT54G I purchased around 2002 or 2003. From then on, I always upgraded to another Linksys every couple or three years. So now, I have the Linksys WRT3200ACM.I have a 2300 SF home and all my computers (three of them) and phones never have a problem finding and keeping the Wi-Fi signal. My Samsung S6 phone even remains connected to the Wi-Fi outside past the end of my driveway, about 120 feet from the router and through walls.I would never use any other router brand. Only Linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart router with the latest and greatestI have used many of the smart routers that Linksys has produced, and this iteration is the best yet, in my opinion. I have used this device for the last two weeks and I have had to reboot it a couple times due to channel traffic issues in my neighborhood, but I think I have that sorted out now. I had it set to auto, but after analyzing my signal against the others, I found most were using the same channels I was using. I changed them and haven't had any more problems. The smart features on this unit are what you would expect from Linksys. Accessible from anywhere that has an internet connection, I can monitor and administer everything from my smartphone. The speeds are great and the signal is good. Some remote locations around the home with many walls between devices may have lower signal quality, but this is to be expected. Overall, this is a great router and I would recommend to my family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right out of the box - Perfect!I got the Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router one week ago. Because of my crazy schedule, it took me a week to find the time I thought I would need to set it up. Boy, was I surprised!First a little history. Up until this point I have been using a WRT1200AC Dual Band router. It worked great - its a Linksys product - right? That is it worked great when I had one laptop and one smart phone sharing the WIFI signal. But, after adding another smart phone and making my desktop wireless there were times when all were operating and the drop in bandwidth could be noticed.Therefore the WRT3200ACM was just what the Doctor ordered. The router came very securely packaged in a sturdy box with tight fitting foam inserts that kept all parts separate in shipping. Included in the box: router, ac adapter, 4 antennae, ethernet data cable, quick install sheet and user manual CD. I very much like the manual on a disk rather than having to go online to access important operating information.The quick install information was very clear. I took the old router offline, rebooted the cable modem so it had a clean handshake ready, connected the antennae, plugged the ethernet cable into the yellow port on the router backside, plugged the router in and using my laptop - connected to the router for setup using LINKSYS SMART WIFI. Within ten minutes I was online using the WRT3200ACM and very shortly after that all my wireless systems were on the network.Immediately I realized the data transfer rates were increased greatly just be the speed that my devices operated. I also noticed that where I had experienced a decrease in signal because of distance and walls within my house before, I was now noticing a zero drop in signal in my home. Linksys Smart Wi-fi is an excellent management app for setting up and managing your network. Simple enough for a neophyte yet offers options for expert IT people to create their own VPN, and much more.This router has a very secure and robust Firewall built in. You can even add an IPv6 firewall using Smart Wi-fi.I am very happy with my new WRT3200ACM. It's potential is great and I will explore the many options still available to me when can make the time to do so. Such as: setting up my own VPN; using the router as a web-server; create a hotspot and so much more. I will report back as an update to this review when I have explored these options.For right now however, I give the Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router 10 out of 10 and 5 Stars for - EASY SETUP, FAST DATA TRANSFER, MULTIPLE DEVICE POWER, and POTENTIAL FOR OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE MODIFICATIONS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solid RouterThis is a very solid router with great speed. I really liked that I was able to save my configuration from my WRT1900ACS and load it on the WRT3200ACM with no changes needed other than changing the name of the router. It was able to transfer all my DHCP Reservations and Port Forwarding which is a huge time saver for me.I have been using the router just about 2 weeks and it has been solid. I'm very fortunate to live in a place where the 2.4GHz range doesn't have many networks and my network is the only one broadcasting in the 5GHz range. Because of this, I decided to experiment with giving more bandwidth to the 5GHz channel by making it operate in AC mode only. I did notice a slight speed up on my phone (the only AC device I have) when it was configured this way. However, since the speeds are acceptable in mixed mode, I configured it to allow N clients.Disclosure: I received this router to evaluate after having previously receiving the WRT1900ACS router as part of the Linksys Friend and Family program. Before that, I had a Linksys E8350 that I had bought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features but Reduced CoverageI installed WRT3200ACM to see how it compares to my existing VELOP 2 node mesh system. The WRT3200 added features, especially wired connections, that the VELOP lacks; WRT3200 has USB, eSATA, Ethernet Ports and a much more informative display but provides seriously less range coverage (despite Mu-MIMO) than the VELOP 2 node mesh. Our home is just over 3000 sqft which VELOP covers with WiFi signal in all bands greater than -70dBm; the WRT3200ACM signal was more than 20dB below VELOP at the far corners of our home to levels below -70 dBm. WRT3200ACM signal would probably be good if optimally located near the center of home, but that would require new coax cables or power line links. I would love to use the WRT3200 as our primary router with the VELOP mesh wirelessly bridged to it, but VELOP supports wired bridge only.I would recommend WRT3200ACM for homes up to 2000 sqft and only if the router can be centrally located. For larger homes and some outside coverage I would recommend a mesh network.

The default router setup provides both a strong and secure setup for my wireless connections. Besides running laptops and Ipads we have Iphones and Android tablets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far pretty goodI have had the WRT3200ACM for 2 weeks now. I have some computer experience. I have Rise Broadband as ISP. I had to install the router manually because the ISP did not recognize my device. If I had not done this with older Linksys routers, the instructions would have been woefully inadequate. Also, I could not get the ethernet connection to work until I established an internet connection.Once connected to the router, I was able to log on to the ISP. Magically, then the ethernet connection activated. Was a little unstable the first day, but has been fine since.Then tried to use the USB 3.0 outlet for a flash drive. The instructions were missing, just a picture of the back of the router. Took me about 2 hours of fiddling with 192.168.1.1 to get computer network to recognize the thumb drive. Still not completely sure what I did that worked. If Linksys is going to offer the option, it needs to provide instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb routerRunning for two weeks. I live in a three story townhouse with a home office on the third floor. The router is on the first floor. Setup was simple and only took a new minutes to be up and running. I am consistently seeing 1300 Mbps through out the house, which is the fastest wireless adapter I own. I wish I could find a faster wireless adapter. I have about 20 devices connecting to the router and speed does not seem impacted. Very impressive router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router!I received it last week and installed it right away. The setup was easy but I had trouble connecting to the Internet through wireless. After few tries I got the connection and it was all downhill. I use separate names for 2.4 and 5.4 band, my adapter is not that smart, and I use channel 1 for 2.4 band and 149 for 5.4 and all works fine. I got the long antennas with my router and they make a big difference for the place where my laptop is (the opposite end of the house). The signal strength is almost double for what it was with standard antennas.So far everything works fine, the signal is great and I hope it will stay this way. It is a replacement for Linksys EA6350 which was loosing the connection every hour or so and needed constant rebooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WRT3200ACM is a high-performance routerUpon opening the box, I was pleased to see a retail package of the Linksys WRT3200ACM wireless router. The predominantly white and blue color scheme will immediately remind Linksys loyalists of the brand we have grown accustomed to, yet the color coordination and design layout has been significantly modernized as to not send us back in time. The Linksys WRT3200ACM features a robust 1.8GHz dual-core processor, tri-band AC3200 wireless, 802.11ac/n/a 2.4Ghz/5GHz antennas with MU-MIMO beamforming capability, four high-powered antennas, five gigabit Ethernet ports (4 LAN, 1 Internet), one USB 3.0 port, and one USB 2.0/eSATA port for setting up external storage or adding onboard media servers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good.I've had this router about a month now and it is performing up to what I had read from other reviewers and what Linksys said on their website. It is a new router Linksys had put on the market and I was taking a chance but I relied heavily on the Linksys name as I had older routers from them in the past. At this moment I am very pleased with it. I've given it a 4 star instead of 5 only because I've had it a short time although I suspect it will be as expected in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of the best RoutersI have had this router for approximately 8 months, and I have to say that I highly recommend this if you are looking for a Router that can give you complete coverage in your home and absolute reliability, I have approximately 3000 square feet's and have had no issues in any corner of my home, I get full signal all over and can run several items at the same time (movies, games, smart phones, etc...) with no problems whatsoever. When it comes to routers reliability is essential for me, and for my internet needs, this router covers this aspect of my connectivity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent RouterWorks great as a cascading router to my internet providers slow router. Provides 1 Gigabit connection with my wired connections for streaming video & Wi-Fi connections are super fast. Linksys Smart Wi-Fi software helps provide Network Map and other important functions. Linksys online installation videos really helped with configuration for easy installation. Really enjoy this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Familiar Friend!There was just something comforting about opening the router box and seeing the familiar blue color of the new WRT3200ACM router. I owned the Linksys WRT54G, like many other users, and came to depend upon that router's consistency. This router has that quality and more. Tri-stream routers have become the standard and this router has many features to put it at the head of the class. Double bandwidth, a fast CPU, and MU-MIMO all bring high speed and simultaneous streaming to your network. Then there's the option of using open source software if you so choose.You can talk about all those features but it's really in the setup and use that it all comes together. Setup was easy through the Linksys Smart WI-FI app. Each connection through the router is optimized through the proper band which means I no longer have to manually assign them. Most of all, the signal strength throughout the house was excellent no matter where I was on either floor. I never did find any dead spots. Speed was fast and smooth. Quite impressive indeed, by far the highest performance I've seen in a router!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible WIFI Range!I've had my hands on this product for about 3 weeks now and after first getting it on line I could not believe how far away from the WRT3200ACM router I could connect to it's WIFI signal! I have a large property and contemplated about going through the hassle of pulling a CAT 6 cable to one of my outbuildings for WIFI. With this unit I have more than 2X the range from my not so old Linksys AC Duel Band Router. I am so very pleased with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has to be rebooted often to keep Wifi workingSeemed OK for a while when first installed. Firmware Updates occurred at some point. The last week of usage I had to keep rebooting the router to keep wifi working. The SSID could be seen by devices. But they couldn't connect without rebooting the router. Sometimes 1x/day. sometimes every hour.Luckily I didn't throw away the old router.Also the Guest Wifi support is unsecure, a bit moronic how it works. Brought up another old router to use for guest access. This is turning me off to linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome router!I upgraded to this router from my old router, and it was a big improvement. Much faster than my old router and handles all of the Wi-Fi traffic in my house. The signal is very strong and I haven't found any dead spots either. Set up was also a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, fast and amazing rangeSo fast and easy to set up. My previous Netgear router couldn't offer a steady signal or reach all areas of my home. This Linksys WRT3200ACM allows me to stream video even outside my house, which is partially stone construction. I am highly impressed and can't recommend this model enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router for both Pro and casual usersThis is a quick follow-up to my initial interview. My WRT3200ACM remains rock-solid in terms of signal strength, range, and connectivity...in fact I have had no need to re-boot it since I set it up. An observation: Most folks who buy the WRT series of routers tend to be really "hands-on" router users who like to get into the finer details of their network settings, and of course, this is a great choice for those who do.However, this router is every bit as good for those who prefer to "set and forget" but are still looking for a router that gives them great performance and reliability. If you have a lot of devices on your network, need to cover a large home, and/or have a fairly robust Internet Service plan, you do not have to be a DD-WRT/third party firmware user to get very good performance from this unit, and the Smart WiFi makes this a very, very easy router to set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setupThis router pretty much sets itself up. Plug it in, connect with a browser and follow the very simple instructions to set it up. I haven't really noticed a big increase in speed over my older Linksys router, but the range is definitely better. What used to be pretty much dead spots in my house now get a strong wifi signal from this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It doesn't play well with Apple productsI purchased this router with the thought it would work for all devices just like my WRT 1900 has but I was wrong. It does't play nice with Apple products. I have spent some time with technical support which helps but we still have occasional issues with Apple products. It works great with Windows computers and Android devices. I would highly recommend this Wi-Fi Router for an environment without Apple products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still needs some improvements to go.I had trouble getting my max. internet speed on my belowed TP-Link C7 1750v1 router.Bought the WRT32000ACM + WRT004ANT. I had some expectations with the antenna upgrade, but the network signal is about the same as the originals and are about equal to the TP-Link on 5Ghz. I have only one floor level in the house.I can though get my max. internet speed stable from the router, and most times it seems superstable. But i had one day issues, with it dropping the internet speed to less than 1Mbit (i've got 75Mbit), and were unable to connect to the router, even though i could see the SSID and signal strength fine. Restarted the router and it worked for a while, but then did the same less than 30 mins after. Turned the rooter off for the night and now it has been stable for 5 days again.Turned the guest network off, don't need it.I would like as TP-Link C7, that you get the option to choose to use 40Mhz only for 2.4Ghz and not just Both or only 20Mhz. <---- Big update needed.I must say i have tried the DD-WRT on it, and it seems slow by some reason compared to the original firmware, even though i got better options to choose channel width + the standard options as wireless channel and protocols to use.DD-WRT i got much better coverage on antennas though as i put the gain on 2.4GHz to 4, and on the 5Ghz to 7.Got a lot of mixed feelings about this router, as the pricetag with the high gain antennas doesn't make me feel the wow factor compared to TP-Link C7. The TP-Link C7 is far more better in their router setup with options, and Linksys seems to aim more for the average i-know-nothing user, which seems perfect for such targets.Waiting for Linksys next move or DD-WRT/Open-WRT for a while.Super cool design though, but it's like a Veyron running only 50%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best out of Linksys yet!Got this about a week ago and my network in the house has been more responsive since. My son is a "game-a-holic" and even when he is online, there is no lag for the other machines in the house. This router replaced another router AND a bridge (both Linksys). I am very pleased with the unit and the setup of it. Setup was super easy and user friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router I have ever had!This router is an improvement on the best router I ever had - the WRT1900AC. So, this means that this is now the best router I heave ever had. It has more range, better features and a few less "drops" than the WRT1900AC had.I have noticed a Wi-Fi speed increase throughout my home and like the fact that it has more memory (512 MB vs the 256 MB my WRT 1900AC had.) and it also has a faster CPU (the WRT1900AC CPU was1.2 GHz and the WRT3200 ACM has 1.8 GHz CPU.)It also has MU-MIMO, which mu WRT1900AC doesnt have, which is supposed to increase speeds for multiple clients. I haven't yet had a chance to try it, but I am thinking it will increase the adaptability of my router, which will make it even better yet.Overall, this router is the best router Linksys has ever made. If you have high-speed Internet and many users/devices at your home, I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable routerThis router is amazing it has the latest when it comes to Wi-Fi technology. You can install an open source firmware. The one thing that I wish that this router had would be a Qualcomm chip instead of the marvel chip and maybe in the near future have a collaboration with a software company like netduma to take this routers ability to the next level. I would also want LEDs to change colors. When it comes to installation its fast and easy. A lot of people who review this product sometimes don't have the knowledge on how network works and they end up connecting this router incorrectly and they give a bad review. I used to be in family and friends and then Linksys took me out of the program so I am not writing this review because I got something for free I bought this router with my own money. If you are having issues make sure your modem is not acting like a router. The mobile app is solid, the user interface of the router is solid as well. The RF signal is strong for both one floor or two floor or three floor. In conclusion I recommend this router if you are a fan of the WRT family and you want to either install your own open source firmware.
