Free Game Accelerator Inside

Ping time and variance are critical technical parameters that affect responsiveness in online gaming, and their values depend heavily on the route game packets take to and from their destination. The Gamers Private Network (GPN™) powered by WTFast automatically performs route optimization, choosing the most efficient route for game packets, resulting in consistently-lower ping time and minimal packet loss. With RT-AC3100 this optimization is free for accelerating one selectable device at a time, so you can enjoy the results on supported competitive multi-player online game1.


Cross-Platform Compatibility

Network speed impacts every device you game with on every platform you game on. The ASUS RT-AC3100 delivers bandwidth and coverage for all your gaming devices, from consoles to PCs to mobile devices, and supports every operating system, including Windows®2, Mac OS®3 and Linux®4.


Adaptive QoS – Prioritize Your Game

Boost your gaming bandwidth with Adaptive QoS (Quality of Service), which allows you to easily prioritize gaming packets and activities. You can even assign full dedicated bandwidth while gaming under gamer solo mode, making RT-AC3100 the perfect ally for low latency gaming anywhere in your home.


Free Up PC System 'Resources' During Gameplay

Networking is only half the equation when it comes to game performance. Anti-virus programs and 3rd party applications can consume valuable CPU and memory that could be reallocated to your game. With AiProtection on the RT-AC3100 you can confidently turn off these utilities while you game, ensuring every available drop of resource is spent enhancing your game.

Everywhere Entertainment in Your Smart Home

Bandwidth for All

RT-AC3100 is the master of entertaining, able to support multiple devices and multiple Full HD 1080p streams. Beyond content consumption, the RT-AC3100 enables a smarter home, supporting IP cameras, thermostats and a variety of devices you don't even own yet.


Unbeatable Coverage

With a dual-band four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability improve dramatically. AiRadar beamforming further focuses Wi-Fi signal on your devices, making your Wi-Fi faster, clearer and stronger.


Powerful Processor, Faster Transfers

RT-AC3100's top-of-the-line 1.4 GHz dual-core processor brings its computational capability to the next level. USB data transfers enjoy up to over 100 MB/s speed and the router download/upload speed (WAN-LAN throughput) up to 1800 Mbps5.

Multiple Capacity Wi-Fi with Revolutionary MU-MIMO Technology

MU-MIMO gives every compatible device6 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, RT-AC3100 is able to connect to multiple MU-MIMO-compatible clients at each device's maximum speed simultaneously, unlike standard single-user MIMO where individual devices have to wait for sequential transmissions7.
