Designed as a dual-purpose home office and entertainment Wi-Fi router, the MAX-STREAM AC5400 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) delivers Wi-Fi to multiple users on multiple devices at the same time and same speed.

Efficient MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology treats each of your devices as if each has its own dedicated router, ensuring everyone can enjoy Wi-Fi without interruption or buffering.

The MAX-STREAM AC5400 router offers three independent Wi-Fi bands that deliver extremely fast combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps (N1000 + AC2615 + AC2615).

Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability - up to 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections - including one fast USB 3.0 port - are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.

Beamforming technology directs Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices. This focused direction provides increased signal strength and coverage. The router features eight adjustable external antennas, which can be positioned for optimal performance.

The router is simple to set up so you can bring your workspace online in three easy steps.
