AC1900 Wireless MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
Ultra-fast 802.11ac Wave2 Dual-Band WiFi
Archer A9 delivers WiFi speeds of up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band. Handle simple tasks like sending e-mails or web browsing with the 2.4 GHz band and bandwidth-intensive tasks like online gaming or HD streaming with the 5 GHz band—simultaneously.*
Boosted WiFi Coverage
Three external antennas and one internal antenna send WiFi signals to every corner of your home. Beamforming technology detects devices, even if they are far-away or low-powered, and concentrates wireless signal strength towards them.
Archer A9 helps your devices achieve optimal performance by making communication more efficient with MU-MIMO technology.** Three simultaneous data streams allow all connected devices to achieve faster speeds than standard AC routers.
Efficient WiFi Distribution
for Smoother Performance
Smart Connect helps the router automatically switch each device's connection to the best available WiFi band while Airtime Fairness prevents older devices from slowing down your network. With both working together, everyone can enjoy a smoother WiFi experience without lag.
Archer A9 improves your online safety and security by providing advanced features and technology like Parental Controls, Access Control and a VPN Server. You can also benefit from the very latest security enhancements—WPA3™ if you keep your router's firmware up to date.§
Gigabit Wired Speeds
Gigabit Ethernet ports (1 WAN + 4 LAN) deliver maximum wired speeds. Plug in your PCs, smart TVs and game consoles for fast and reliable connections.

*Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications along with the number of connected devices were defined according to test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate, wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed, and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.
**Use of MU-MIMO requires clients to also support MU-MIMO.
§Use of WPA3™ requires Archer A9 to have software upgrades.
