Linksys WRT3200ACM WiFi Router


Bring ultra-fast AC WiFi to your home with the one and only WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Open Source WiFi Router. Equipped with Tri-Stream 160 and premium MU-MIMO technologies, this open-source router delivers blazing-fast, uninterrupted dual-band WiFi speeds to multiple devices at the same time.

Equipped with innovative Tri-Stream 160 technology, the WRT3200ACM delivers untouched, extreme WiFi speeds that never lag. Not available on other WiFi routers, Tri-Stream 160 effectively doubles the bandwidth of the 5 GHz band to power data-heavy activity with ultra-fast 2.6 Gbps WiFi 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 WiFi routers aren't allowed.

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 WiFi 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


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 WiFi network that never lags.

WRT AC3200 WiFi Router


Advanced users can harness the expanded potential of the WRT3200ACM router by customizing with open source firmware. 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

Connection ports on the back of the router


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.


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.

Linksys Smart WiFi Mobile App


With the Linksys Smart WiFi App, you can closely monitor and manage your home WiFi remotely using a smartphone or tablet.

  • Guest Access: Create a separate, password-protected WiFi network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome router with great speed and coverage! Setting this router up was very easy. Plug everything in, run the software, give the networks names, and that's pretty much it. I was replacing a router so I gave it the same name and password as my old one, so all of my computers and 38 devices connected automatically. I love the network map that comes with the software, It lets you see everything that is connected to the network, along with their MAC addresses. If you know the MAC addresses of your computers and devices then you can edit the names and their images on the network map to easily identify everything. I did set this up to give high priority service to some devices like Ooma (Voip) and that worked well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and smooth!!!!! I have had this unit for about 3 weeks now and I am really impressed. I was looking to replace my wrt1900 with something that could handle multiple devices more easily. This unit seems to do that and does it quickly!! When I think about how many devices use Wi-Fi in my home it's astonishing(2 xbox ones,1 ps 4, 2 laptops, 4+phones etc...). In my house range has always been an issue the 3200 has great range I am not even using my range extender!! The WRT3200acm makes all these things run fast and smooth(meaning no resets!!) I am really pleased with this device as with all my Linksys products and their performance is great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super-fast, reliable router! My 5-year old N-router stopped working. I found this one at a reasonable price, only a little more than an equivalent. I will admit I had to use the 800 number for help to get it working, but in 30 minutes, I was connecting to my Samsung (Barnes and Noble) e-Book, and getting fast downloads to it (music), AND I believe this router, with the 1-year 800 number support, will meet unanticipated future needs, which is why I sprang for the extra cost. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it especially because of the apparent knowledge of the support team and international supportability, which is a possible future need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router with nice features and great Looks. I received this router in exchange for my honest opinion. As always with Linksys routers it was very easy to setup, I set the router in a repeater mode and it has been running perfectly with no drops or hiccups at all, Very fast, very stable! This router helps me extend my network even further, I really love it, and of course it looks beautiful, the only thing I can say is maybe a con is the power brick is pretty big, but really that is no big deal unless you are using a power strip and you have little space. If your a fan of the WRT line of routers then you can't go wrong with this router.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No technical support for over 11 days. I purchased router and modem from Linksys site in January 2017. After 10 months, router connectivity is dropping up to 10X per day. I have contacted Linksys help and am still waiting for resolution for over 11 days. In the meantime, my home office productivity is poor, my home security and other home automation items are down. My cell phone charges are building due to no wifi. I have done everything Linksys requests and maintained detailed logs. All help desk personnel and technicians are pleasant and tell me they understand my frustration. However, I still have an expensive router with unreliable service. I expected better from Linksys.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Settings reset after a few days Running router with stock linksys firmware. Within the last week, personal settings on the router mysteriously reset on it's own. Prior to personal settings being reset, I was getting an error after login so I performed a hard reset and re-input all my personal settings. This fixed the error message from appearing after login. After about 2 days of running, unable to access local UI on router. Needed to power cycle the router to login to access router's local UI but personal settings for the router somehow lost. Need to re configure router again but within 2-3 days unable to access local UI for router, also router settings lost.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stabile WiFi, but router's time not syncing Overall the router has stable WiFi networks, both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. However I'm experiencing issues with router's time sync and logging in with SmartWiFi cloud services. And since I cannot set the time myself, then parental controls and WiFi scheduling are not working (i.e. some of the router's advertised features are unusable). I've been in contact with Linksys tech. support, but with no success and the issue was not resolved. Hoping for a firmware update that will fix this, otherwise I will not have these features. Also there is a forum thread for these issues here: https://community.linksys.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/WRT3200-time-sync-and-Smart-WiFi-login-issues/td-p/1200946

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with my WRT3200ACM I wanted more bandwidth than I could get through my Linksys E2500. As both my wired and wireless speed tests have confirmed, the WRT3200ACM has delivered in spades. Setup was a breeze. I followed the recommended quick start process and was connected to the internet in moments. Configuring port forwarding was also very simple. Next, connect all of the wireless devices to the new SSID and it was done. All told about an hour for the complete process. I configured both 2.4ghz and 5ghz to the same SSID and like that each device can choose it's preferred band.

*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.
