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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy! Hardware poorly made. Don't buy this thing. This has the same hardware build as the WRT1900ACS and the ethernet ports on the back will fail! This thing is poorly made. I went to unplugging a cable (yes I know how to push the plastic tab in to unlock it), and the metal surrounding the port pulled out with the cable. See the posted picture. This shouldn't ever happen. Upon calling Linksys' tech support the lady told me I was out of luck as it happened after the 1 yr warranty period. So now I'll be shopping for a new router and Asus will be at the top of my list. I was very disappointment with Linksys and their customer support, and they've lost a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best router I have ever owned I bought this Router from amazon.com a month and a half ago and unfortunately after some time using it I had serious problems with it and contacted Linksys support line for help, and they were so nice and professional in resolving my issue that after several attempts to fix my Router they decided to send me a new one, I am so very happy with this Router because it is one of the best I have ever seen, Linksys is my preferred router ever since I can remember but this one is just top of the line and I am very impressed with the signal level in my home, it covers very easily approx. 4000sqf. I highly recommend this item to anyone that needs a real power house of a router. it is the best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5ghz band turns Off & On This is the second (2nd) unit with the same issue. It's simple, the 5Ghz band just turns Off. You can reboot/restart the router, turn Off completely removing the Power for hours and still no luck. It turns on when it wants.. Yes, with latest firmware, yes, move channels around to channels not conflicting w/ other houses. The 2.4ghz band is still good but the 5ghz it's just gone.. :o( Use Acrylic to check SSID, channels other houses are on, speeds, etc. and gave you a second chance buy replacing with another unit. Well, it's going back to Sam's club to get my money back to purchase another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit Router Review Previous to installing this wireless router on my home network I was using a Cisco Valet 20 Plus. As I needed a better performing router to connect my nine wireless devices I installed this beast on my network and WOW!!!! Setup was not difficult at all and it took me fifteen minutes to set up and change my password along with logging on my other devises. The Smart Wi-Fi App is a welcome advantage also. No more buffering and my devices stay connected! My Smart TV just loves this new router viewing is a pleasure no buffering or dropping of the connection. As I pull into my driveway my android phone connects to my network from a 125 feet away! Linksys did a nice job on this router I would strongly recommend this router for anyone needing the power to connect and stay connected using numerous devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigait Wi-Fi Router Worth the money. Easy install with the "Wizard". Unbelievable speed increase. My old Linksys router was choking my network. Before updating to the WRT3200 I was getting 38.87 Mbps Download and 21.57 Mbps Upload. After installing the WRT3200 I'm getting 216.55 Mbps Download and 22.52 Mbps Upload. I also like that the WRT3200 is designed to handle multiple users at the same time without dropping speed or users. I haven't had any problems with this. I like being able to sign into the WRT3200 from anywhere on my Android phone to control my network users remotely. I have several computers, printers, 3 Xbox, 4 DVRs, 3 Blu-Rays, 2 Internet phones, 2 Smart TVS, security cameras, and our family stream different movies at the same time without any digital distortion. The WRT3200 handles all of this load with ease !! Even the clarity improved to the HD cable TVs. reception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Reliable I have had this for approx. 2 weeks and so far, everything stays connected. Set up was a breeze through my browser. The Router Auto updated and auto connected to my devices. I have a total of 12 devices, smart phones, TV's, Laptops, desktop, 2 printers, My Cloud, Rokus etc...The AC Wireless devices stay connected at a full 866.7 mbps. Also connected to my ac wireless Linksys range extender with no trouble. So far, has been a good performer with no down time. I normally will manually tweak the settings in the router but have found no need to with this particular router. Streaming movies such has Netflix was smooth. You will not be disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay Away This router worked fine for me for a couple months, not great (for how much it cost) but it was okay. Then a firmware update was pushed that broke the router, it's not worth the hassle, time and energy to buy this. Look elsewhere for your routing needs. The customer service is terrible, I would rather just have money back but instead I'm taking a chance on a different router. 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz wifi drops constantly, the coverage in my 900 square feet apartment is spotty when more than 5 feet from the router. It's just not a great router and is priced far higher than what it should considering how poorly it works. Stay away unless you want to waste hours of your life with technical support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Multiple ISH Streaming with 9 Devices! I received my new router about a month ago and waited to really put it to the test before I gave it a rating. 5 Stars is really not enough. I have streamed up to 9 UHD movies at one (Wirelessly) with my family without any lagging or buffering. Multiple X-Box One's, live tv streaming, and large downloads all at once had no effect on its performance. Very little signal loss through my concrete walls in this 4000sf house. I have been able to remove all of my repeaters as I get full signal strength in the farthest reaches of my house on every story. By far the most impressive router I have owned. I highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Firmware out of date for Windows 10 I have had this router for over a year now and it has worked wonderfully. Just recently I purchased a 6TB drive to attach to the router as a file sharing drive on my wireless system. Windows 10 could not access the drive because Windows 10 has stopped using the 30 year old SMB1 protocol because it is not secure. In todays cyber world, security requires a new standard. I haven't found any firmware updates to this router that used SMB2. Will have to wait to see if Linksys will update the firmware beyond the current Ver 1.0 on their web site. You will be happy with this router unless you want to share a drive through this router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Linksys WRT3200 I bought this couple day ago, so far love it, the only problem I have is that for some reason some mobile devises get kicked off, I wouldn't mine if it was my phone! the problem sometimes my wife is the one that her phone, MacBook & iPad get disconnected, that is what I don't like because its a pain to have to be reconnecting when she will like just to get on and use with no problem, other than that speed is great no buffering, videos load so fast for like YouTube, range wise is no different than previous one, I had apple AirPortExtreme and the range on that one was a bit stronger but i highly recommend it its worth the investment even with the minor problem i currently have.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GD Review of WRT3200ACM I installed this router approximately 3 weeks ago and have been very happy with the unit. I de-installed my old router and installed the High Gain antennas on this router. Started it up and within about 20 minutes my network was back up and fully operational. Applications which access the internet during startup and starting up faster and going thru the internet connection process quicker than before. Using IE or Chrome web browsers open to the home page and load much faster without any delays. Using wireless seems to be faster than before. To date I am very please with this router and would recommend as one to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade from WRT1900AC I was offered the option of receiving a free WRT3200ACM in exchange for a fair and accurate review of the product. I used it to replace my WRT1900AC. The installation was just as easy as my previous router. It works just as well, but also give me more range to reach the far corners of my home and into the back yard. It is another great product from Linksys. The only issue I had initially having random dropped connections. After some trouble shooting, I disconnected all of the cables and reinstalled them recycled the modem and router, and the issue went away. Could have been a poorly seated connection of the Ethernet cable from the modem. All is good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Fast I absolutely love this router , it has been a huge improvement over my last router . So far it has been lag free even while streaming HD video on three devices simultaneously. Finding the perfect position on the external antennas was alittle tricky but they definitely help improve coverage in problem areas . Setup was easy , I would like to see a option to transfer previous wireless networks and data through the Linksys app to ease setup and prevent haven't to reenter passwords on all devices . Overall this has been the best router I have owned to this date .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest router around!!! This router is hands down the fastest I have used before!! The signal is strong, even in congested areas like condominiums, where multiple wireless routers are broadcasting their signals. Setup was very easy, after I worked through an initial issue. I tried the setup in its manual mode, which it didn't like very much. The Internet light was amber instead of white, so I reset the router and followed the Guided Setup. It was very quick and easy, and after I was able to make the customizations I wanted after. Speed is amazing!!!!! With multiple people surfing the web, Instagram, and YouTube, I was still able to get over 300Mbps over wireless with no problem!!! I highly recommend this router, as its another quality device from Linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speed I received this product from Linksys Friends and Family as a reviewer for some of their products and once again this is a winner. I am absolutely pleased with the performance of this router. I have four smart tv's, two of them have firesticks, I also have two desktop pc's and one laptop, two smart phones, four tablets, wireless security, two wireless printers, and a host of kids and grands that have their devices when they visit. Not once has this router failed to deliver under the most extreme conditions. I highly recommend this product for anyone who streams programs and surf the internet on multiple devices at once...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific in every way. I have been using only Linksys routers for as long as I can remember. My first one was a Linksys WRT54G I purchased around 2002 or 2003. From then on, I always upgraded to another Linksys every couple or three years. So now, I have the Linksys WRT3200ACM. I have a 2300 SF home and all my computers (three of them) and phones never have a problem finding and keeping the Wi-Fi signal. My Samsung S6 phone even remains connected to the Wi-Fi outside past the end of my driveway, about 120 feet from the router and through walls. I would never use any other router brand. Only Linksys.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Half speed I got the 3200ACM after reading rave reviews and articles. I'm disappointed. I have a $80 Netgear N750 that is giving me straight-from-modem speeds of 100-130 mbps when wired, and about a 10 mbps loss to around 90 mbps on wifi, depending on distance. The Linksys gave me half of these speeds, ethernet cable or wifi. I spent hours with Linksys support, who did try hard to solve the issue, but ultimately told me the router was defective and that there was no other reason why the router would be giving me half-speed. Disappointing, especially considering the price point. I took the router back though Linksys did offer to have me ship it in for warranty work. Nah...I think not. I'll stick with my working out of the box Netgear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great performance I am really enjoying my new Linksys WRT3200ACM router. Internet connection speeds are the best. My laptop is connecting to the router at 1170Mbps (the best I’ve ever seen). Our various wireless devices are used throughout the house and we haven’t experienced any dead zones. We maintain good connection speeds everywhere. I have Apple TV and a Blu-ray player connected via Ethernet to the router. I have not experienced any lag or buffering, just smooth video. I also have external storage connected to the USB 3.0 port. Gaming is also superb on the router. My ping times are great and I get excellent play. I am very pleased with the performance of this router!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not keep a wireless connection I bought this router due to the great specs and many good reviews. After install things changed. I spent two days frustrated on why it would not open certain web pages and would keep dropping the wireless connection about every 15 min and then maybe auto reconnect, sometimes needing a power cycle to restore. LAN was rock solid and always connected. This mystery had me call the tech support, with though was friendly was no help at all. They kept insisting I needed to restore factory defaults and I kept telling them it is brand new and that is not a solution. I tried updating latest firmware and then reverting, no fix. All in all it was a very depressing and time wasting experience and I have returned the router to the place of purchase. I hooked up my old N600 while I wait for a different router to be shipped and my wireless has not skipped a beat! Until they work the bugs out of this model I stay steer clear of it at all costs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I hooked this up this morning and everything is going great so far. Setup was smooth and easy as always. I have 16 devices hooked up and all are working flawlessly. My first time using a MIMO router and I already know it's sending signals way faster than my last Linksys router. It's only been a day but I am sure that this router will work great like all the others I have purchased from Linksys. I would definitely suggest this to anyone that wants their home network to be super fast. I received this as a promotion to try out for free with my review from Linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for long distances This WRT router performed very well for my household it handled all my devices without a sweat. My Xbox is 86 ft. away in a straight line with many double thick walls between it and the router. A detailed network test on the Xbox said it has around 46% connection strength. It still plays just fine. The Linksys smart WiFi app makes setting up and managing this router a breeze. It gives you instant access to a lot of important settings. I haven’t used any of the other features this router has so I can’t really comment on them. Finally this is great router it did everything and more than I expected it to. I like the throwback look of original Linksys wireless G.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wifi does not work with OpenWRT / DD-WRT Both the box and this website suggest the device works with OpenWRT and DD-WRT. At present, there is no available wifi driver for the WRT3200ACM on either platform. Linksys should either release their proprietary driver (used in the stock firmware) as open source or remove these claims from the device.
Date published: 2017-04-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT open source ready! I brought this device thinking I could use DD-WRT or Other popular open source firmware but all users such as myself are stuck with a router that doesn't work on the wifi side Linksys refused to release their present driver as Open source. Without a open driver this unit will NEVER work as Advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Wireless Range and Speed Setup was a breeze. Once I connected to the router with the provided password I was easily able to connect the router to my Linksys Smart WiFi account and set up the router password as well as change the name of the WiFi bands. The interface for the router is very easy to navigate and provides you with many options that are useful in any network. There are features for device priority, device names, dns settings, and even open vpn. The router even supports DD-WRT and OpenWRT firmware it you want. The wireless range is also great. It covers my entire house. I get signal all over and its a strong signal. I love the design of the WRT line of routers too, it keeps the look of the orignal model. Overall this is a really great router if your looking for fast wireless speeds and lots of features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blistering Speed! WRT3200ACM 2.6 Gbps Wi-Fi The WRT3200ACM is the latest Linksys router featuring the capability to use open source firmware. Always a favorite for advanced users that like nearly unlimited customization. This router has next generation 2.6 Gbps Wi-Fi speeds using Tri-Stream 160 technology. Linksys is able to bond the 5 GHz band and double the throughput of older routers. Something interesting we noticed is that the 5 GHz band seemed very fast on our mobile devices and tablets. We are thinking that Linksys optimized the 5 GHz band overall. Buy this router if you operate multiple devices on your network. Linksys has the secret sauce that enables each device to get the fastest speed possible. Along with legendary support and reliability, you have a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy Router Received my new WRT3200ACM router today, was plugged in and operating well within ten minutes. The default router setup provides both a strong and secure setup for my wireless connections. Besides running laptops and Ipads we have Iphones and Android tablets. All these devices seem to be perform well with this router. The dual core processor and 512MB ram provides very quick response to apply change of settings and to reboot device. This router is customizeable with OpenWRT and DD-WRT to tweak setup for special operation and functionality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weak wifi radio, don't buy for Wi-Fi... Look elsewhere if you want a wifi router with any range. This router only works at near-full wifi speed within 10 feet of the unit (720Mbps max). Its radio is very weak. At 20 feet it has a maximum connection speed of 200Mbps. Outside that you get between 5-30Mbps. I'm running the latest firmware and have no interference issues. I've worked with Linksys customer support. I've even returned/replaced this router thinking I got a bad one. This router does NOT support 2.6Gbps speeds (or even 500Mbps speeds), it does NOT support "beam forming". It does NOT even support "tri-stream". I have no idea why all this is in the specs and printed on the box. On the plus side... This router has the fastest wired file transfer speeds I have every seen. Just don't try to use it for wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The packaging is outstanding. Unboxing was like opening a Christmas present. The router and antennae look like they are made much more high quality than EA6900 and all the other routers I have owned and seen. Setup was a breeze. Web interface looks a lot like the EA6900 but with additional options. The range is much better than EA6900. The Best part is that I can now stream media to my Galaxy S7 with MU-MIMO on 5 GHZ, Sony Blu-Ray 2.5GHz, and my Speed test to my Wireless AC 5GHz on my HP laptop at the same data rate, as when I had it hardwired to the LAN using Cat7 cable. Does EXACTLY as advertised! It is completely future proofed. I am going to make sure all my upgrades are have MU-MIMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WRT3200ACM upgrade Even though my wife and I are in our mid 60's I feel we are very progressive when it comes to technology. We have the latest smartphones, two tv-streaming devices, two tablets and three laptops running at all times. On top of that our two children visit from time to time and bring along up to five more devises. WOW, that's a load for even two-year-old technology. Instaling the WRT3200ACM and being able to prioritize devices has been the cat's meow for the tv streaming devices and of course my wifes' smartphone. This the technology we needed to get us up to date. Thanks, Linksys. Adam P. Bordelon

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work I didn’t want to write this review because of my previous experiences with linksys, which have all been excellent devices. I expected no less from this router. Upon setting it up and running a quick speed test, it appeared that this was going to be a fast router, however, within a half hour of setting it up, it lost internet connectivity. No matter what we did to regain connectivity, we could never get it to last more than about half an hour. Calls to tech support confirmed that there was a problem with the router. We tried to get tech support to send us a new router to test but they refused. We told them they could send us a new router to review, or we would review the one that didn’t work.

*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.
