RT-AC3100

AC3100 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Router

Take your wireless network to the next level with the ASUS RT-AC3100. With four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) antenna design, and 5GHz & 2.4GHz dual bands, it provides up to 3167 Mbps concurrent data rate for bandwidth-intensive tasks of the whole house. Enjoy smooth, lag-free online gaming with built-in free game accelerator. Say goodbye to dead spots with the AiRadar beamforming technology. And even when multiple devices are connected, each of them will have maximum speed thanks to MU-MIMO technology. To set up the router and manage your network are also simple and easy with the ASUSWRT dashboard UI and ASUS Router App.

Ultimate Gaming and 4K Streaming
NitroQAM

NitroQAM Technology—Seamless Experience

Whether you're gaming online in a heated competition or streaming a live event in 4K UHD, lag and buffering are simply not an option. NitroQAM (1024-QAM) technology on the RT-AC3100 delivers a combined 3167 Mbps Wi-Fi speed, ensuring everyone on your network can enjoy smooth streaming and low-latency online gaming.

Gaming Boost

Double Gaming Boost

Enjoy low-latency online gaming with boosted internet and home network performance!

GPN

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 games1.

Compatibility

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 Windows2, Mac OS3 and Linux4.

QoS

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.

AiProtection

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

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.

Coverage

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.

AiMesh

Powerful Whole-home Wi-Fi System

In most cases, your RT-AC3100 can deliver smooth, reliable Wi-Fi to every part of your home. But Wi-Fi coverage can be affected by many factors—room layout, construction materials, and even furnishings. ASUS AiMesh is an innovative new router feature that fixes these problems: it creates a whole-home Wi-Fi network using multiple ASUS routers. AiMesh is powerful, flexible and you can use a mix of ASUS router models—protecting your investment! AiMesh gives you time-saving central control, and seamless roaming capability. AiMesh is Wi-Fi you can rely on—for all your devices, all the time!

Processor

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.

MU-MIMO

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.

AiProtection—Your Digital Playground is Protected
AiProtection2

ASUS AiProtection powered by Trend Micro improves your online safety and security by combining automatic vulnerability detection, malicious site blocking and parental controls.

Monitor and Restrict Internet Activity for Any User

Advanced parental controls help you to prevent users from visiting inappropriate websites, for example keeping young children safe from viewing adult content. You can also restrict the times that each device or guest account can access the internet, by applying scheduled time limits.

Your Digital Home Hub and Network Center
ports

Your Sharing Center

With built-in USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, you can connect USB-enabled devices, such as external storage drives, printers, or a 3G/4G dongle to your ASUS router and share them conveniently with other users via Wi-Fi. And with USB 3.0, you can enjoy up to 10X faster data transfer speeds.

Link Aggregation, More Devices Go Faster

RT-AC3100 features Link Aggregation, which combines two teaming LAN ports (the 1st and 2nd port) into one superfast wired connection for up to 2 Gbps using two Gigabit Ethernet cables. With Link Aggregation enabled on your NAS, clients can unlock unprecedented transfer speeds.

ASUSWRT

ASUSWRT—Easily Control Your Network

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.

App

Control Your Network Anywhere

In your increasingly mobile-enabled life, having control over your network via an app is more important than ever. The new ASUS Router App is built from the ground-up to be both intuitive and robust, allowing you to set up your router, manage network traffic, diagnose connection issues and even update firmware, all without needing to boot up a PC.

  • Easy Router Setup
