EA8100 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO WiFi Router

NEXT-GEN AC DELIVERS POWERFUL WI-FI TO MULTIPLE DEVICES

The Linksys MAX-STREAM AC2600 features MU-MIMO, the latest advance toward uninterrupted, simultaneous Wi-Fi connections.

Devices such as HD streaming media players, 4K TVs, tablets, and game consoles use a lot of bandwidth. But with MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, the MAX-STREAM AC2600 sends advanced Wi-Fi to multiple devices at the same time and same speed. Your whole family can play, stream, and work at once, without experiencing lag or buffering--at up to 2x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.*

The EA8100 operates in a clear airspace denied to traditional routers thanks to Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) certification.  This certification triples the number of channels available at 80MHz.


Dual-Band Diagram

ENJOY COMBINED WI-FI SPEEDS UP TO 800 MBPS (FOR 2.4 GHz) + 1733 MBPS (FOR 5 GHz)

Our MAX-STREAM AC2600 Multi User-MIMO Router offers two dedicated Wi-Fi bands that deliver combined speeds of up to 800 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz) + 1733 Mbps (for 5 GHz).  It also allows you to make your time online more efficient: simply assign high-bandwidth activities, like 4K video streaming, to the high-speed 5 GHz band, and leave basic activities like email to the 2.4 GHz band.

POWERFUL PROCESSOR FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

Enjoy fast-paced Wi-Fi activities such as online multiplayer gaming with the MAX-STREAM AC2600. Powered by a dual-core processor, it is capable of handling three simultaneous data streams. This results in improved Wi-Fi performance and faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.


HIGH-SPEED WIRED CONNECTIVITY WITH GIGABIT ETHERNET PORTS

Connect more devices and share files at speeds 10x faster than Fast Ethernet with four Gigabit Ethernet ports. Connect a storage device and quickly transfer files. Or, share devices such as printers across your Wi-Fi network using the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports.

IMPROVED Wi-Fi SPEED AND RANGE WITH BEAMFORMING

Direct Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices to increase signal strength and coverage with our MAX-STREAM Wi-Fi router using Beamforming technology. Play video games, listen to music, check emails, shop online, stream HD movies, and more, without having to worry about dropped signals.


ALEXA WI-FI ACCESS

With Alexa, you can easily manage Wi-Fi access for devices and individuals in the home, taking focus away from screens and back to what’s important. Say commands like “Alexa, turn off Timmy’s Wi-Fi”, when it’s time for dinner or “Alexa, enable guest Wi-Fi” when you have people over.

An active, customer-purchased Internet Service Provider broadband account is required for connection of this router and other connected computers and devices to the Internet. Number of connected devices is based on lab test results. Some devices may require additional wireless adapters that match this product’s maximum Wi-Fi standard or an Ethernet cable to connect to this router.

Specifications are subject to change without notice. Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance may vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, range, and coverage. Range specifications are based on performance test results under normal use case conditions. Actual data throughput and range depend upon many factors, conditions and variables, including building materials and construction, volume of network traffic, mix of wireless products used, interference, wireless obstructions and other adverse conditions. Actual data throughput will be lower than specified and may depend on mix of wireless products used and external factors. Wireless coverage claims are used only as reference and are not guaranteed, as each wireless network is unique.

*Two or more 1x1 MU-MIMO-enabled client devices must be connected to achieve the two (2) times faster physical data rate.

**The standard transmission rates–600 Mbps or 1300 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 600 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz), 54 Mbps, and 11 Mbps–are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.

† Seamless Roaming is designed for devices that support the 802.11k standard. For more information on supported devices, please check with your device manufacturer. Seamless Roaming may require the latest router firmware. Please check the support page of your router for more details.
