Product Overview

Quad-Core Processing for Powerful Performance

The Archer C4000 powers through every service, thread and application running on your network with a 1.8 GHz 64-bit quad-core CPU that delivers fast, lag-free connections to gaming, streaming and mobile devices. Three additional Wi-Fi processors support the router’s quad-core CPU to balance Wi-Fi demand and keep your network running at top speed.

Entertain Every Member at the Same Time

Buffering will never be a problem from now on. With Tri-band and MU-MIMO Technology, the Archer C4000 wireless router can communicate with multiple devices at the same moment, sending and receiving data on the best available band. So you can still enjoy a non-stop MOBA or FPS game when your families are watching 4K videos online.

Far-Reaching Wi-Fi Coverage

High-performance antennas with powered amplifier create strong Wi-Fi signal across your home. RangeBoost technology greatly improves ability to detect devices that are further away or low-powered, giving your network even greater coverage. Beamforming focuses wireless signals towards connected devices for stable Wi-Fi.

All Gigabit Ethernet ports (1 WAN+ 4 LAN) bring wired speeds to the maximum. Plug your PCs, smart TVs and game consoles into one of the four Gigabit Ethernet ports for fast and reliable wired connections. Link Aggregation empowers your network-attached storage (NAS) devices by combining two separate Ethernet ports into a 2Gbps connection.
