When ultra fast Wi-Fi is a must, the RT-AC3100 Dual-Band Wireless-AC3100 Gigabit Router from ASUS doesn't disappoint. Supporting the enhanced 802.11ac networking standard and operating on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies, this router supports a maximum wireless data throughput of up to 3167 Mbps. This enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity allows for low latency gaming, streaming of 4K multimedia content, downloading of large files, and much more. In addition to the 802.11ac networking standard, this router also supports 802.11a/b/g/n network standards making it easy to connect nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device to your network.
On the outside of the RT-AC3100 you will find four adjustable antennas featuring AiRadar beamforming technology supporting a transmission distance of up to 5,400 square feet (500 m). With beamforming technology the wireless signal is beamed directly to the connected device for a more focused, more reliable connection. This ASUS router not only beams the signals to your devices, it has the ability to support more devices without slowing down thanks to MU-MIMO technology.
If a wired connection is what you desire, you can connect to any of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Dedicated link aggregation support provides bandwidth of up to 2 Gbps when a super fast Internet connection is required. Inside the RT-3100 you will find a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor along with 128MB flash memory and 512MB of RAM to ensure the router operates smoothly when being pushed to the max.
NitroQAM Technology for a Seamless Experience
Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K/UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC3100 delivers a combined 3167 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.
Free GPN Game Accelerator Inside
Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private Network (GPN) powered by WTFast automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC3100 this optimization is free, so users can enjoy the results on virtually every competitive multi-player online game - at no extra cost.
Please note, the RT-AC3100 owners get the basic WTFast solution free, without ads. The free version is limited to accelerating one device at a time, and includes WTFast technical support. Users can pay to upgrade to the premium version for simultaneous acceleration of multiple devices.
Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo mode, making RT-AC3100 the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home.
Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on. The ASUS RT-AC3100 delivers bandwidth and coverage for all your gaming devices, from consoles to PCs to mobile devices, and supports every operating system, including Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
Free Up PC System Resources During Gameplay
Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. Anti-virus programs and 3rd party applications can consume valuable CPU and memory that could be reallocated to your game. With AiProtection on the RT-AC3100 you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.
Bandwidth for All
RT-AC3100 is able to support multiple high speed connections and even maintain multiple simultaneous Full HD 1080P streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC3100 enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.
With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically with the ability to reach distances up to 5,400 ft (500 m). AiRadar beamforming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
Power Processor, Faster Transfers
The RT-AC3100 comes equipped with a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor bringing computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 100 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1800 Mbps.
4X Capacity Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO Technology
MU-MIMO gives nearly every compatible device its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network.
In fact, RT-AC3100 is able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions.
ASUS AiProtection powered by Trend Micro ensures your online experience is safe and secure. By combining automatic vulnerability detection, malicious site blocking and parental controls, AiProtection keeps everyone safe and sound.
Advanced parental controls help you to prevent users from visiting inappropriate websites, for example keeping young children safe from viewing adult content. You can also restrict the times that each device or guest account can access the internet, by applying scheduled time limits.
Your Sharing Center
With built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.
Integrated Link Aggregation
The RT-AC3100 features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one superfast wired connection for up to 2 Gbps using two Gigabit Ethernet cables. With Link Aggregation enabled on your NAS, clients can unlock unprecedented transfer speeds.
The RT-AC3100 features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options.
