When friends are visiting your house or a colleague is staying over in your apartment for a few days, what are the first things do they ask for? We bet one of them would be your Wi-Fi name and password.

In this day and age, our mobile devices have quickly become our dependable go-to for anything and everything digital—from booking a ride home or buying stuff from online stores to chatting up friends and posting your meal of the day—and your online life is only as good as your last Wi-Fi (or mobile data) connection.

Though we live in a country where slow internet is still the normal, it wouldn’t hurt to have a more definitive connection at home. Give your family and guests the satisfaction of always being connected online wherever they are inside your house with the help of a reliable Wi-Fi internet connection.

With a price tag of P15,150, the Linksys EA9200 AC3200 Tri-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router wishes to be the household standard for Wi-Fi connectivity with its promised performance and range.

This Linksys Wi-Fi router has six active antennas that provides six data streams to your mobile devices, ensuring that you can get complete coverage in every nook of your house. Three of the six antennas are fixed and hidden inside the router, while the remaining three are external antennas that are removable and replaceable. You can customize the adjustable antennas and position them as high as possible on the vertical bases for optimum signal.

Equipped with the Tri-Band technology, the Linksys AC3200 router is expected to provide wireless speeds of up to 3.2Gbps. High-bandwidth applications are routed to the two high-speed 5GHz bands, while lower-bandwidth activities uses the one 2.4Ghz band, making it possible for this Wi-Fi router to deliver the fastest possible spees for all the connected devices.

Under the AC3200’s hood are the 1GHz dual-core CPU and three integrated co-processors that boasts of 2.96GHz penta-core combined processing power. This allows the Linksys AC3200 handle multiple high-speed data streams all at once. No need to worry about decreased individual speed and performance even when everyone at home have their smartphones, tablets, and laptops connected to the router.

Linksys also fitted the AC3200 with beamforming technolgoy, which focuses wireless signals at a receiving device instead of sending out Wi-Fi in a broad spectrum.

But connectivity range of the Linksys AC3200 router doesn’t end there. You can connect more devices and share files faster via the four Gigabit Ethernet ports at the back of this device.

The USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports sitting at the rear are versatile on their own right as well. External storage devices of any capacity and in HFS+, FAT32, or NTFS formats are compatible with both ports.

You can also access your network anytime using your browser or the Smart Wi-Fi mobile app. The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi router allows you to manage the priority devices and websites, control inappropriate content, monitor network actviity and speed, turn the Wi-Fi access on or off for any connected device, and create a separate password-protected network.
