64-Bit CPU and XStream Processing for Smoother PerformanceWith XStream processor architecture, the Archer C2300 dedicates one processor to each of its Wi-Fi bands. These processors handle Wi-Fi traffic, freeing the router’s powerful 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU to take care of everything else.
All this extra brainpower keeps your Wi-Fi running smoothly so everyone in your home can enjoy what they love most, whether that’s watching Netflix, gaming online, streaming music—or all of the above.
MU-MIMO and Smart Connect for Better ConnectionsMU-MIMO lets the Archer C2300 talk to several devices at once, and Smart Connect automatically places each device on the best available Wi-Fi band.
With both working together, everyone can hop online at the same time without having to wait, and each device can always get the best connection.
RangeBoost and Beamforming for Far-Reaching Wi-FiRangeBoost amplifies the router’s ability to detect and receive Wi-Fi signal from devices that are located farther away. Beamforming locates Wi-Fi devices and focuses the router’s wireless signal toward them instead of sending it in all directions at once.
With both, the Archer C2300 lets you stream, game and enjoy what you love anywhere in your home, from your favorite spot on the couch to the comfort of your bed.
Airtime Fairness for More Efficient Wi-Fi DistributionWe’ve all encountered slowdowns when multiple devices are trying to connect to Wi-Fi at the same time. Phones, laptops and tablets using older Wi-Fi standards can slow down your home network.
With Airtime Fairness, the Archer C2300 equally divides attention between newer and older devices improving overall Wi-Fi performance and reliability without letting older devices limit your network.
Link Aggregation for Doubled Wired SpeedsTeam two of the four Gigabit LAN ports for a single device for a faster wired connection with a combined speed of up to 2 Gbps.
Double the connection speeds to a Network Attached Storage (NAS) for even faster streaming and data backups than ever.
Built-In VPN ServerWhen using public Wi-Fi, establish an encrypted VPN connection to your router to enjoy safe and secure internet access.
Browse the web in a coffee shop, download important files while waiting for your flight at the airport, and access private router-connected hard drives at home from afar without worry or paid subscriptions.
Update and Control from Your PhoneThe Archer C2300’s web interface makes setup on your phone or tablet simple. When your network is up and running, you can download the free Tether app to easily adjust network settings, manage your home network while away or update to the latest firmware.
