The Archer 9's support for multi-user MIMO technology enables multiple simultaneous data connections, while Airtime Fairness helps to ensure that slower devices don't slow down the entire network. Beamforming technology is designed to direct the router's Wi-Fi signals toward nearby wireless clients. You can share a printer or a storage device over the network using the router's USB 2.0 Type-A port. Alexa support lets you control the router with voice commands, while IFTTT integration can trigger customizable actions whenever certain devices connect or disconnect from the network.

Wi-Fi Coverage & Beamforming

Three external antennas and one internal antenna help to send Wi-Fi signals to every corner of your home. Beamforming technology is designed to detect Wi-Fi devices and concentrate wireless signal strength towards them.

Multi-User MIMO Technology

Archer A9 helps your devices achieve optimal performance with MU-MIMO technology. Three simultaneous data streams allow connected devices to achieve speeds up to 3x faster than standard AC routers.

Efficient Wi-Fi Distribution

Smart Connect technology helps the router automatically switch each device's connection to the best available Wi-Fi band, while Airtime Fairness is designed to prevent older devices from slowing down your network.

Security Features

Parental controls, access control, a firewall, support for a guest network, and a VPN server help to boost your online security. Firmware updates can also deliver security enhancements such as WPA3.

Alexa & IFTTT Support

Turn on guest Wi-Fi with Alexa voice control and use IFTTT to trigger actions whenever devices connect or disconnect from your network.

Easy Setup and Management

You can quickly set up the Archer A9 via its intuitive web interface or the Tether app for iOS and Android. Tether also lets you manage network settings, including parental controls and media sharing, from any Android or iOS device.
