Nowadays, it never ceases to amaze me with how far technology has come along. It seems like every day I’m talking about something new in the market that just baffles me. Once again, I’ve checked something out that has totally blown my mind. I had the luxury of reviewing the new WRT3200ACM Wi-Fi Router available at Best Buy from Linksys. The WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router is powered by Tri-Stream 160 technologies, which doubles the bandwidth on all spatial streams for the fastest dual-band router on the market. Seeing that I love to play games on my computer, this is the perfect router since I need speed and performance for them.
The setup was really easy and one of the many things I like about it is the app. You go to the App Store or Google Play, whatever you use and download the Linksys app. With the app; you can control pretty much and see how many devices are connected to the Internet. From guest access, parental controls, and device prioritization, the app lets you do everything. Now you can gain access to restricted DFS channels at the full bandwidth for the clearest Wi-Fi not available to most other routers. Below are some of the specifications that make this the best router on the market:
- 1.8 GHz CPU for high-powered performance
- MU-MIMO technology for high-speed Wi-Fi to multiple devices at the same time, same speed
- Open-source ready with OpenWrt and DD-WRT® for complete flexibility and customization of functions,
- Upgraded Smart Wi-Fi app to manage and monitor your home Wi-Fi from a mobile device, anytime, anywhere
- 256MB Flash and 512MB of RAM Memory
- 4 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
My Final Thoughts:
This is exactly what we needed because I’ll be honest we stream a lot. We have two gaming devices, plus we’ve ditched our cable provider and now stream on phones, computers, tablets, iPads and TVs. Before we had issues streaming some of our programs because of all the lagging, but this router definitely did the trick. First, my wife didn’t want to change out the router, but she was baffled how great things turned out. I would recommend this product for everyone because let’s be honest; everyone is streaming and has numerous electronic devices. For the parents with little ones, you can control how long they’re online and what they can view online. It’s available at Best Buy right now for $249, and it’s well worth it, so order it NOW!!!
