I love my new router from Best Buy! The Linksys WRT3200ACM is a fast router with parental controls, plus even provides a guest login. Not only has it solved our slow network issue, but offers additional benefits that have really come in handy.
Fast Router With Parental Controls
With having a household of 5, often times we have a minimum of 5 devices on at one time. Besides my computer, we also have 2 streaming TV’s, a printer, 2 iPod’s, 1 iPad, 2 iPhone’s, and 1 Android. The technology behind the WRT3200ACM allows for multiple devices to be on a WiFi Network at the same time, but still all get the same fast and reliable speed.
The Linksys WRT3200ACM is powered by Tri-Stream 160 technology, which doubles the bandwidth on all spatial streams for the fastest dual-band router on the market. With doubled bandwidth, and being the fastest dual-band router on the market this router not only ensures our streaming TV doesn’t glitch but also prevents our other devices from slowing down.
On-Line Router Management
I also love how much this router can be managed on-line, from anywhere at any time. Here are my top three favorite setting allowed through on-line management.
Prioritize media. I can give top priority to devices, applications, and games for best performance on our home network.
Parental Controls. Allow any specific device access to the Internet always, never, or at specific times. You also have the capability of blocking certain websites.
Technology vs. children, especially teens, has become a huge parental challenge for me. With having cross-platform devices, it’s been difficult to manage their devices with other parental management apps.
Guest Login. I can set up a specific password for guests to use on our network.
Here are some other boast worth features of the WRT3200ACM:
- 1.8 GHz CPU for high-powered performance
- MU-MIMO technology for high-speed Wi-Fi to multiple devices at the same time, same speed
- Open-source ready with OpenWrt and DD-WRT® for complete flexibility and customization of functions
- 256MB Flash and 512MB of RAM Memory
- 4 Gigabit Ethernet Ports
One last thing you should be aware of with this router…it was the easiest thing to set up! I have set up many routers and modems over the years, and this one was a piece of cake!
Improve the speed of your home network with Linksys at Best Buy, you’ll love it!
