Linksys has had a lot of success with their WRT series, and that can’t come as a surprise to anyone. They look great, are packed with features, and perform great too. Today I have the pleasure to take a closer look at the newest family member in the WRT series, the WRT3200ACM.
Linksys’ WRT3200ACM is, as the name suggests, an AC3200 class router which means that it can deliver up to N600 speeds on the 2.4GHz band and up to AC2600 on the 5GHz band. The reason why it is so fast on the 5GHz band is that it uses the Tri-Stream 160 technology. The Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band through the use of three 160MHz channels. It is also Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certified from the FCC which not only allows operation at 160MHz, it also triples the channels available at 80MHz. That allows your router to operate in the clearest airspace and where other routers aren’t allowed.
