Archer A6


Household Wi-Fi at Streaming Speeds

Press play and forget about buffering with the Archer A6. Thanks to high-speed dual Wi-Fi bands, you can run more of your devices at the same time without interruption. The strong 2.4GHz (300Mbps) Wi-Fi band is perfect for sending emails, browsing the web, and listening to music. The crystal 5GHz Wi-Fi band reaches 867Mbps so you can game online and stream in HD simultaneously

Beamforming for Better Coverage

Beamforming technology detects the location of your connected devices and concentrates the Archer A6’s Wi-Fi towards them to create stronger overall connections.

MU-MIMO for 2x Faster Connections

MU-MIMO technology simultaneously transfers data to multiple devices at once, reducing wait time, increasing Wi-Fi throughput for every device and making each stream more efficient.

Optimum Wired Versatility

The Archer A6’s multiple Gigabit LAN ports provide your PCs, game consoles and more with ultra-fast and stable wired networks.
