Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor backed by 512 MB of memory, the RT-AC5300 has plenty of horsepower to efficiently balance its tri-band 2.4 and dual 5 GHz networks, 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports with 2 Gbps link aggregation capability and USB 3.0 and 2.0 storage/networking functionality.
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-AC5300 features a built-in WTFast client to access the GPN: a private network of route-optimized servers to ensure consistently low ping times.
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.
Tri-band Smart Connect
Devices on your network have varying bandwidth needs and often move throughout the home. Smart Connect manages the traffic assigned to the 2.4 and dual 5 GHz bands on-the-fly, intelligently moving devices from one band to another based on speed, load and signal strength, ensuring that every device enjoys optimized bandwidth and coverage.
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
