Ultimate Gaming and 4K Streaming
NitroQAM™ technology: Seamless Experiences
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 cost2!
- Average Game Ping: Down 30 ~ 60%
- Average Speed Deviation: Down 70 ~ 90%
- Bad Router Hops: Down 70 ~ 90%
Adaptive QoS: Prioritize Your Gaming Life
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®3, Mac OS®4 and Linux®5.
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.
Everywhere Entertainment in Your Smart Home
Bandwidth for All
RT-AC3100 is the master of entertaining, able to support as many devices as people you invite over and can 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, able to reach our widest-ever coverage up to 500m2 (5400 ft2)1. AiRadar beam-forming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.
Powerful Dual Core Processor, Faster Transfers
RT-AC3100's top-of-the-line 1.4 GHz dual-core processor brings its 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 Mbps1.
4X Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology
MU-MIMO gives every compatible device8 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-IMO compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions7.
AiProtection – Your Digital Playground is Safe
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.
Parental Controls: Monitor and restrict internet activity for any user
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 Digital Home Hub and Network Center
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.
Link Aggregation, More Devices Go Faster
RT-AC3100 features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one super fast 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.
ASUSWRT: Easily Control Your Network
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.
