and more, without having to worry about dropped signals.
- Tri-Stream: 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.
DFS Certified: 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.

anywhere and quickly view the status of your WiFi network.
- Guest Network: There are two Guest networks that can be
set up on the Linksys WRT3200ACM; one for each network band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz).
The default SSID of each Guest network is the SSID of the main network
appended with the -guest suffix. Create a separate, password-protected WiFi
network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password. Guests will be
removed in First-In, First-Out (FIFO) order once the maximum number of
guests is reached.

Open Source Ready: While the Linksys WRT3200ACM provides an outstanding
experience via Smart WiFi immediately out of the box, advanced users can further
modify the router with open source firmware. Developed for use with OpenWRT and
open source, Linux-based operating system, the router offers an additional layer
of customization to suit your needs
Gigabit Ethernet Ports: The Linksys WRT3200ACM router is fitted
with five 10/100/1000 (1 WAN & 4 LAN) Gigabit Ethernet ports with auto-sensing
technology. The WAN port is used to connect your Internet modem, while the LAN
ports are used to connect your local network devices.
USB 3.0 Port: The Linksys WRT3200ACM has a USB 3.0 port which is
capable of supporting an external hard disk or flash drive with up to 1100mA
current draw. This port supports FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and HFS+ journaled and non-journaled

eSATA/USB 2.0 Combo Port: The combo USB 2.0/eSATA port on the
Linksys WRT3200ACM allows you to connect a USB 2.0 device or eSATA (External
Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) drive to the network.
DLNA & UPnP Compliant: The Linksys WRT3200ACM router supports
DLNA & UPnP for connectivity and streaming between compatible network devices.
The Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)
both have a set of guidelines that allow interconnectivity between network
- Universal Plug and Play (UPnP): UPnP allows devices
that are connected to a network to easily discover each other and
automatically create a working configuration. By enabling UPnP, you will be
able to automatically forward the needed ports for a certain device or
application. Examples of UPnP-capable devices include web cameras, gaming
consoles, routers, computers, VOIP, and mobile devices. This is very useful
especially if you want to do data sharing, communicate with another device
in the network, or for entertainment purposes such as video conferencing and
- Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA): DLNA is an
international collaboration of Consumer Electronics (CE), computing industry
and mobile device companies. They developed a concept of wired and wireless
interoperable networks where digital content such as photo, music, and
videos can be shared through consumer electronics, personal computers and
mobile devices in and beyond your home. DLNA-enabled products are designed
to be easy to install, affordable, must interoperate with each other without
requiring the consumer to undergo complex or tedious setup, and
configuration for connection between devices.
Note: In general, all DLNA-capable devices are also
UPnP-capable since the former is derived from the later. Also, DLNA uses
UPnP to discover and control different devices.
Advanced Security Modes: The Linksys WRT3200ACM supports WEP,
WPA2 Personal, WPA2 Enterprise, WPA2/WPA Mixed Personal, and WPA2/WPA Enterprise
on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Its provides up to 128-bit encryption. You can
even use WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) technology to automatically and securely add
wireless devices to your network.
DMZ & Port Forwarding: The DMZ feature allows one local user
to be exposed to the Internet for use of a special-purpose service such as
Internet gaming and Videoconferencing (VC). The DMZ hosting forwards all the
ports at the same time to one computer. Port Forwarding is more secure compared
to enabling the DMZ feature because it only opens the ports you want to open.
Wireless Scheduler: The Wireless Scheduler feature of the
Linksys WRT3200ACM allows you to turn Off or On the wireless networks, including the
Guest networks at your preferred time.
