You don\u2019t have to look far for the best router that delivers a high speed, reliable wireless connection\u2014not while our ASUS RT AC3200 Tri Band Router review is here. Featuring gigabit internet connection, a handful of useful ports, the ASUS AC3200 is prepared to handle a band of friends for game night or binge watching your favorite show.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - ASUS AC3200 Review\r\nThe ASUS AC3200 has fast, reliable speeds, ready to assist a group of gamers with its performance and multiple ports. For a similar comparison, have a look at our review on the 9 most compelling features of the Netgear AC1900 nighthawk 5ghz smart wifi router.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhen operating on 2.4GHz, the router capped at 600Mbps. You don\u2019t start to see a major drop-off until you head 30 feet away (excluding walls). However, the AC3200 has two 5GHz access points, allowing for each to get 1300Mbps, respectively, easily beating ASUS\u2019 own RT AC68U and Netgear Orbi RBK23.\r\n\r\nThat kind of performance makes the ASUS AC3200 versatile. You can easily set it up as a VPN\/NAS server and allocate enough resources for it to be useful. And thanks to Smart Connect functions, additional devices connecting will have their fastest band chosen for them based on needs, individually.\r\nDesign\r\nIt isn\u2019t surprising that ASUS gave the AC3200 Gigabit Router a very \u201cgamer\u201d look to it. But its shape and size can get in the way if you don\u2019t dedicate enough real estate to it. Still, it\u2019s only one router whereas the TP-Link Deco Whole Home Mesh uses three.\r\n\r\nOn the bright side, the AC3400 Dual Band Wi Fi Router comes with a handful of modern connectivity ports. In the back are four gigabit LAN ports (gigabit Ethernet), a single gigabit WAN port, one USB 2.0, and one USB 3.0 port. That\u2019s great considering the Eero Pro Mesh Wi-Fi System (2nd Gen) isn\u2019t equipped with any Ethernet ports.\r\nValue\r\nThe ASUS AC3200\u2019s has a lot to offer as far as tri band routers go\u2014especially for a group of strong heroes. Its strong performance and multiple connectivity ports prove that. However, that strength can also be its weakness.\r\n\r\nIn order to make use of everything the ASUS AC3200 Tri Band Wireless Network Router has to offer, it should be used across a handful of devices, an addition to your home network. For example, if you use multiple smart home devices, the AC3200 shines.\r\nASUS AC3200 Review Wrap Up\r\nWhether you\u2019re enjoying a streaming night with friends or game night, the ASUS AC3200\u2019s performance and VPN\/NAS server capabilities is more than prepared to make that happen. This is especially true with the number of devices it can handle. Transfer speeds were average, and the design is bulky, but nonetheless the AC3200 performs where it matters most.
