Are you in the market for the latest and greatest in routers? Well, Linksys just came out with the WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router and it is pretty awesome. It is powered by Tri-Stream 160 technology. This technology doubles the bandwidth on all spatial streams making it the fastest dual band router on the market.
I wanted to break down the name of the router for everyone reading because let’s face it, most people don’t know what WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO Gigabit means. At least I didn’t and I like to know as much as possible before I make a purchase. I like to know what I am spending my money on and why…..
To be honest this one was a hard product to break down if a person doesn’t know much about routers. Let me say that I figured out the MU-MIMO translates to multi-user, multiple input-multiple output. Basically this comes down to this technology delivering exceptionally fast Wi-Fi speeds to multiple devices all at the same time. No more lags with Wi-Fi when multiple users are online. They all receive the same speed.
In our home this particular feature has been unbelievable! It is one of the reasons I love the Linksys WRT3200ACM Router. At any given time we may be on the computer, streaming a movie and playing the PS4 online. Having the ability to have multiple users online at the same speed is huge.
This router also has an upgraded Smart Wi-Fi app. It is used for managing and monitoring your home Wi-Fi anytime, anywhere from your mobile device. This app allows you to do things like:
- Set parental controls for your child’s Wi-Fi usage. Ex. Johns iPad blocked at 9pm tonight
- Assign priority connections to certain devices
- See who is online and what devices are being used when away from home.
- Allow guests access to your Wi-Fi
If you are a parent, you can see how an app like this could come in very handy on a daily basis. I know it has been a feature that I have personally appreciated so much. It saves me from fighting with my 9 year old son when it’s time to get off the PS4. Thank you so much Linksys!
