The One and Only WRT Series Router™
Bring ultra-fast AC Wi-Fi to your home with the one and only WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Open Source Wi-Fi Router.
Equipped with Tri-Stream 160 and premium MU-MIMO technologies, this open-source router delivers blazing-fast, uninterrupted dual-band Wi-Fi speeds to multiple devices at the same time.
The Fastest 5GHz Band of any Router1
Equipped with innovative Tri-Stream 160 technology, the WRT3200ACM delivers untouched, extreme Wi-Fi speeds that never lag. Not available on other Wi-Fi routers, Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band to power data-heavy activity with ultra-fast 2.6 Gbps Wi-Fi speeds.
Dynamic frequency selection (DFS) certification from the FCC not only allows operation at 160MHz enabling Tri-Stream160, but it also triples the channels available at 80MHz, so your router can operate in the clearest airspace that other Wi-Fi routers aren't allowed.

MU-MIMO Provides Stunning Multi-Device Performance
Thanks to MU-MIMO technology, the WRT3200ACM router can handle even the most bandwidth-intensive environments. MU-MIMO builds upon longtime broadcasting cornerstones; such as spatial multiplexing, beamforming, and scheduling algorithms to boost overall throughput and distribute Wi-Fi bandwidth fairly between devices.
Each connected client device receives its own dedicated data stream, so users won't have to compete with one another for bandwidth. Multiple users can simultaneously engage in 4K video streaming, play online games, and perform other data-intensive tasks without latency or buffering.
MU-MIMO for Multiple Device Households
Enterprise-Grade 1.8GHz Processor Boosts Throughput
Equipped with an enterprise-grade dual-core processor, the WRT3200ACM packs the computing power needed to handle even the heaviest network traffic and deliver the lowest latency. The result is a fast, responsive home network that never lags.
Open Source Firmware Offers Advanced Customization
Advanced users can harness the expanded potential of the WRT3200ACM router by customizing with open source firmware2. Using packages from established open source distributions like OpenWrt® and DD-WRT®, you can:
- Set up a secure VPN
- Turn the router into a web server
- Create and manage hotspots
- Capture, analyze, and manage network traffic
- Detect network intrusion
- Access TOR network for anonymous browsing
- Employ many other advanced open source features
Full Range of Ports for Advanced Connectivity
Connect more devices and share files at speeds 10x faster than Fast Ethernet with four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Connect a storage device to the USB 3.0 port and quickly transfer files. Or, connect eSATA and USB hard drives or a printer using the eSATA/USB 2.0 combo port.

- Fastest 5 GHz band claim is made as of August 26, 2016 (ex-factory date). Tri-Stream 160 with 2x bandwidth for 5 GHz band is based on achieving 3x 160 MHz at 867 Mbps = 2.6 Gbps, which is up to 2x more bandwidth when compared to an AC1900 router with 3x 80 MHz at 433 Mbps = 1.3 Gbps.
- While Linksys fully embraces the open source community and is providing open source use capabilities, they do not offer technical support on using open source firmware. Installing 3rd party firmware is done at your own risk and replacing factory-installed firmware with open source firmware will void your warranty.
