Powerful Dual Core Processor for Supercharged Wi-Fi
If you're working in your home office, you can quickly download large files thanks to the MAX-STREAM's 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, which delivers the performance necessary for seamless videoconferencing and fast file transfers. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once--delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.

Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability; up to 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Dual USB connections, including a USB 3.0 port, are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.

Advanced Security Features for a Secure Connection

With the MAX-STREAM AC5400 Router, your work files, data, and home network information are safely connected with WPA/WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall.

8 High-Performance Antennas for Maximum Coverage
