TP-Link Archer A2300

details: AC2300 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2018-01-18

With NitroQAM Technology, Archer A2300 boosts the Wi-Fi Speed up to 1625Mbps on 5GHz and 600Mbps on 2.4GHz. It can handle your favorite activities like gaming online, watching 4K movies, or sharing large files.

With XStream processor architecture, the Archer A2300 dedicates one processor to each of its Wi-Fi bands. These processors handle Wi-Fi traffic, freeing the router's 1.8 GHz dual-core 64-bit CPU to take care of everything else.

MU-MIMO lets the Archer A2300 talk to several devices at once, and Smart Connect automatically places each device on the best available Wi-Fi band. With both working together, everyone can hop online at the same time without having to wait, and each device can always get the best connection.

RangeBoost amplifies the router's ability to detect and receive Wi-Fi signal from devices that are located farther away.

USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports make it easy to share photos, videos, and music on your home network. When away from home, a VPN allows you to securely access NAS drives and other devices connected to the router through USB.

Archer A2300 is not only supporting safe and secure OpenVPN and PPTP VPN connection, but also using VPN Acceleration to boost the connection speed. All of the data you're transmitting is guaranteed to be secured by these VPN functions.
