Disclosure: Thank you to Best Buy for sponsoring this post. I received the Linksys WRT3200ACM Wi-Fi Router in order to conduct my review and share my experience. All opinions are 100% honest and completely my own.
The internet is a very important necessity in my home. Having great internet speed and access is a bonus! I need it to do my job as a work-from-home mom. I also need it to be able to update my blog and social media channels since I’ve created a stream of income being a digital influencer. Outside of the fact that being able to have good internet access allows me to make an income from home, my family also uses it at their leisure. We stream movies daily (on multiple televisions), have Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Fire Stick set up. I can’t forget our video game systems! We are a family that loves to game… LIVE!
There are six people that utilize the internet in my home and we have Wi-Fi set up for everyone’s tech devices. I love the benefit of the Linksys – Wireless-AC Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router because it allows us to access high-speed Wi-Fi to multiple devices at the same time with the same speed. I can’t tell you how annoyed I get when I am streaming a movie and it has to stop and buffer before it continues to play. We are usually on the internet at the same time doing multiple things whether streaming movies, playing a game or surfing the internet. There have been times where we were bumped off the network and that’s not good! I also have guests ask to join our network when they visit.
Adding the Linksys- Wireless-AC Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router to our home was a no brainer and the set up was moderately easy for the most part. Being able to have a dedicated router allowing us to ease the use of our modem and have an improved network sounded good to me. Here is what’s included: Linksys MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router ACM3200, WRT3200ACM – Quick Start Guide – CD-ROM with Documentation – 4 antennas – Ethernet Cable and Power Adapter. You get Tri-Stream 160 technology with 2x bandwidth for the fastest 5 GHz band of any router. The processor is 1.8 GHz CPU for high-powered performance.
I know memory is important to everyone so there is 256MB Flash and 512MB of RAM Memory. There are 4 Gigabit Ethernet Ports and its open-source ready with OpenWrt and DD-WRT® for complete flexibility and customization of functions. Outside of the overall performance I think my favorite feature would have to be the upgraded Smart Wi-Fi app to manage parental controls and monitor your home Wi-Fi from a mobile device, anytime, anywhere. My kids are notorious for calling me on the phone when I’m not home to troubleshoot internet issues. This is a great resource to have at my fingertips!
