Built-in Game Acceleration The path gaming packets take once they leave your network affects ping time and stability. Inefficient hops lead to inconsistent ping and packet loss. The RT-AC3100 features a built-in WTFast client to access the GPN: a private network of route-optimized servers to ensure consistently low ping times. Farther Coverage With a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically, able to reach even the farthest stretches of your home. AiRadar beamforming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger. MU-MIMO Ready MU-MIMO gives every compatible device its own dedicated full-speed Wi-Fi connection, so that multiple devices can connect at the same time without slowing down the network. In fact, MU-MIMO-compatible clients will connect at each client’s respective maximum speed simultaneously. AiProtection Powered by Trend Micro™ Just as wireless technology has evolved, online threats have similarly evolved. AiProtection provides multi-stage protection against these threats. From vulnerability protection and malicious site blocking to preventing already-infected devices from transmitting personal data, AiProtection keeps your digital playground safe and sound. ASUSWRT User Interface The RT-AC3100 features the enhanced, intuitive ASUSWRT user interface, which gives you easy access to both the 3-step web-based installation process and a wealth of robust advanced options, including ASUS AiCloud, which allows you to securely access, stream and share data on-the-go wherever you have an internet connection.
