Product Overview Intelligent Tri-band Wi-Fi for All Your Devices
RT-AC3200 is a tri-band 802.11ac router featuring Tri-Band Smart Connect, an incredible new feature that automatically maximizes the performance of each and every wireless device. With the world's fastest combined data rate of 3200 Mbps (2600 Mbps on the two 5 GHz bands plus 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band), RT-AC3200 allows every device to work at full speed, ensuring lag-free online gaming, silky-smooth 4K/UHD video streams, and effortless downloading. Add to this superb coverage and total security, and you'll see why RT-AC3200 takes your network to the next level!

Revolutionary Hardware

Six external high-performance antennas
RT-AC3200 uses two 802.11ac networks, each with a three transmit, three receive (3x3) antenna configuration. This is made possible by its six external high performance antennas, and allows more devices to connect faster with better stability.

Dual USB ports
The easy-to-use USB app lets you share printers, storage devices and 3G/4G (HSPA+) dongles over your entire network, and the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port ensures ultra-fast transfer speeds. Plus, there's plenty of space around each port to accommodate bulkier devices.

Smart Connectivity For Full-Speed Networking
With more and more Wi-Fi devices competing for bandwidth on home networks, ranging from slower legacy devices to the latest 802.11ac products, there's a real need for a smart way to make sure every device is working at full speed. RT-AC3200 uses tri-band Smart Connect technology to do just that, along with AiRadar universal beamforming for enhanced Wi-Fi coverage and stability.

Tri-band Smart Connect
Our Tri-Band Smart Connect technology automatically assigns each device to either the 2.4 GHz band or one of the two 5 GHz bands, according to the device's speed, its signal strength, and how busy each band is. This means you never have to decide which band to use, as RT-AC3200 does it all for you. This means you get better range and faster, more reliable connections — all the time!

AiRadar beamforming
ASUS AiRadar intelligently strengthens wireless connectivity using 802.11ac universal beamforming technology, high-power amplification and exclusive ASUS RF fine-tuning.

Adaptive QoS
ASUS Adaptive Quality of Service (QoS) optimizes and prioritizes bandwidth, with presets for gaming, media streaming, VoIP, web browsing and file transfers.

Powerful online multitasking
RT-AC3200 has a data pipeline that's around 20 times larger than conventional routers — up to 300,000 data sessions — for exceptionally smooth performance.

Life In The Fast LAN
For the fastest wired networking performance, RT-AC3200 has a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet WAN port plus four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. Its powerful hardware-accelerated NAT removes the bottleneck between the wired LAN and the internet for a lag-free gaming experience.

Hardware NAT
Removes the bottleneck between the internet and the home network, giving WAN-to-LAN performance that's between 2-5 times faster than a traditional software-based NAT.

Dual WAN support
Configure one of the LAN ports as a WAN to use two internet connections, either to share internet traffic between them or so that one can be used as a backup connection should one connection fail.

Tested For Compatibility
RT-AC3200, like all ASUS networking products, is subjected to exhaustive compatibility testing during its development. RT-AC3200 works flawlessly with a vast range of adapters, media players and other wireless devices to ensure the best performance — it even supports the latest-generation Xbox® One and PlayStation® 4 game consoles.

Time Machine® support
Any USB storage device attached to RT-AC3200 can be used in conjunction with Time Machine® backups for your Apple devices.

WPS
Any device supporting the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) standard can be connected instantly simply by pressing the WPS button on RT-AC3200.

VPN support
Create a VPN server or turn your network-connected devices into VPN-enabled clients — with no need for paid VPN services.

The Powerful, User-Friendly Interface

ASUSWRT
RT-AC3200 features the enhanced ASUSWRT graphical user interface, which gives you easy access to the 30-second, 3-step web-based installation process3. It's also where you can configure AiCloud 2.0 and all RT-AC3200's advanced options. ASUSWRT is web-based, so it doesn't need a separate app, or restrict what you can change via mobile devices — you get full access to everything, from any device that can run a web browser.

Adaptive QoS
ASUS Adaptive Quality of Service (QoS) optimizes and prioritizes bandwidth, with presets for gaming, media streaming, VoIP, web browsing and file transfers.

Traffic Analyzer
Traffic analyzer helps you spot internet bottlenecks quickly and easily. It gives you an at-a-glance view of the amount of network bandwidth used by each user, device or application on a daily, weekly or monthly timescale.

Network map
Comprehensive network map shows you at a glance details of what devices are connected to your router and their connection status.

AIProtection With Trend Micro™ For Advanced Security

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by perfect for sky fibre Flashed it to the latest merlin firmware to enable connection to sky fibre. Solid connection. The 5 ghz bands have good range. Upgraded from n66 u model and wifi connection on below floor has increased from 10mb to 28mb. Looks stunning mounted on the wall. Has wall mount hinges. Overall 10/10 12 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Router Has 2 x 5Ghz and 1x 2.4Ghz bands. Possibly a little overkill for my use, but I have no problems with my current serup. Setup includes: Samsung 4K TV connected to the first 5Ghz band. No issues streaming 4K Netflix content. Synology DS124 playNAS ( Vdeo Station through TV ) MacBook Pro , iPad Connected to the 2nd 5Ghz band. 2 X iPhones and Android hand set connected using the 2.4Ghz band. Fast router, streams my multimedia content without problems, including 4K. The Asus wrt firmware is good and an alternative Asus Merlin wrt is available. The firmware offers excellent feature such as VPN client, the VPN client is handy for UK Netflix users looking to view American Netflix content, though the VPN client requires that you have a private VPN account. 17 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No contest simple as that! Been using the N66U for a couple yrs now and its proved to be very reliable. Was it worth me looking for a better router? not really because I didn't have a problem with the N66U but........ then I discovered the RT-AC3200, this router simply blows away anything else in it class. Feature rich, seriously stable and coverage is just WOW!. The only thing that baffles me about this router is why add a USB2 port when USB3 is backward compatible and why but why ASUS did you place the USB3 port on the front, other than that there isn't anything better to date. If you are thinking about buying this then go for it you wont regret it. P.S There are a few people complaining about dropouts on all 3 bands but these guys are not checking if they are sharing Wi-Fi channels with neighbours. I was getting drops until I discovered I was channel sharing with a lot of routers close to me. Changed channels on all 3 bands and not had a drop since. 01 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product with network features galor Excellent router supplied by scan with its super quick service. This range topping piece of kit has an awesome feature set not available on competitors products - for example, Network protection, Network Anti-virus etc. It replaced the RT-N66U (Dark Knight) Asus router as an upgrade to the AC wireless technology. For wireless use it works great - as to be expected from an Asus router. If your a real techie - install the merlin firmware allowing further enhanced control. Highly recommended, if you can afford it. 25 June 2015
