This gives users a low-latency gaming experience and ultra-fast 4K/UHD video streaming anywhere in the home.

With eight powerful external antennas in a four-transmit, four-receive (4T4R) configuration, both Wi-Fi range and signal stability are dramatically improved, giving our widest-ever coverage up to 500 square meters. AiRadar beamforming focuses the Wi-Fi signal, giving faster, clearer and stronger Wi-Fi performance for each device.

RT-AC5300 incorporates many advanced technologies to enhance performance, ease of use and stability. Tri-Band Smart Connect ensures that each device is assigned automatically to the most appropriate band for maximum speed and stability. Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) enables multiple devices to connect at their maximum speeds without slowing down the network, and Link Aggregation (802.11ad) can combine two LAN ports into one superfast 2Gbit/s wired connection using two network cables.”, the company said in a press release.
