Reviews
  • So in that light, the Archer C3200's achievement of consistent gains in total throughput in our testing is an impressive achievement... Think three or four people watching streaming video, with some also downloading a large file or Torrent, while other household members just trying to catch up on Facebook or email. If this sounds like your house, AC3200 might be for you.
