I was seriously excited about trying out the new Linksys WRT3200ACM Gigabit Wi-Fi Router. My family is a power internet user. With both me and my husband playing online video games, my teen son playing games and streaming media, and both my younger kids streaming and playing games, we stay pretty connected throughout the day. Whether we are doing research for a school project, having a family movie night, looking for recipes online, or streaming music, odds are pretty good that we are using our internet connection for SOMETHING for a good chunk of the day. So we are pretty serious about making sure we stay up and running, and that we don’t get a lot of interruptions. Steam is on almost constantly and with Civ VI coming out we need the best!
The Linksys Router was FABULOUS. Once we got it hooked up, we could really see a difference in how our Wi-Fi performed throughout the house. Our other router was a little aged, and didn’t always have a capacity we were looking for. Sometimes if someone was on an online game, it would be hard to watch a movie without some lag or delay. The Linksys Router really pushed our access to the next level- gameplay was smoother, more than one person could do something internet-intensive at a time, and there was no lag or buffering during family movie night- and let’s face it, a Pixar movie is WAY better when it plays like it should!
This router is powered by Tri-Stream 160 technology, which doubles the bandwidth on all spatial streams for the fastest dual-band router on the market. It will give you access to restricted DFS channels at full bandwidth for the clearest Wi-Fi that most other routers don’t have access to. It also has 1.8 GHZ CPU for powerful performance, MU-MIMO technology for high-speed connectivity for multiple devices simultaneously, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and a realy cool upgraded Smart Wi-Fi app that lets you manage and monitor your home Wi-Fi from a mobile device! Bottom line, it perfect for families that really utilize internet, and for PC Gamers and those who need speed and performance in a router.
