Description

Maximum Wi-Fi Performance with Three Streams

With 3×3 MIMO, Archer A8 is capable of transmitting and receiving data on three streams. 3×3 capable computers— like Macs—pair perfectly with A8 to perform at max with much higher efficiency than 2×2 MIMO routers.

Incredible 802.11ac Wave2 Home Wi-Fi

Archer A8 delivers high-performance and affordable home Wi-Fi with total speeds up to 1900 Mbps. Handle simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing on the 2.4 GHz band and bandwidth-intensive tasks like online gaming or 4K/8K UHD streaming on the 5 GHz band—all lag-free.

Broader Coverage throughout Your Home

Access your entertainment from every corner of your home with 3 external high-performance antennas. Beamforming technology detects devices and concentrates wireless signal strength towards them, even if they are far away or low-powered.

Connect More Devices Simultaneously

Archer A8 helps your devices achieve optimal performance by making communication more efficient with MU-MIMO technology. Multiple devices are able to send and receive data on the best available band. Enjoy non-stop entertainment on all your devices—lag-free.

Increased Efficiency in Wi-Fi Distribution

Smart Connect helps your router automatically switch each device’s connection to the best available Wi-Fi band while Airtime Fairness prevents older devices from slowing down your network. With both, everyone can enjoy a smoother, lag-free W-Fi experience.

Full Gigabit Ports

Gigabit Ethernet ports (1 WAN+ 4 LAN) deliver maximum wired speeds. Plugin your PCs, smart TVs, and game consoles for fast and reliable connections.
