This QoS mode is destined to deliver a smooth and immersive cloud gaming experience.
Blistering Wi-Fi Speeds
Get into the action with incredible AC5400 tri-band Wi-Fi speeds over the 2.4 GHz (1000 Mbps) and two 5 GHz bands (2167 Mbps). Three Wi-Fi bands make it easier to streamline your network and stay competitive in the heat of battle.
Dedicate one band to gaming traffic while the remaining two deliver high-speed Wi-Fi to the rest of your home. Or enable Smart Connect to have the router zero in on the best Wi-Fi band for every device, intelligently driving them to peak performance.
A 1.8 GHz 64-bit Quad-Core CPU provides impressive processing power to handle multi-gigs of transmitting data and decimate the latency. 1 GB of RAM delivers the raw power to perfectly execute multiple application with instant response. Just focus on your competition and Archer C5400X will do the rest.

Full-Throttle Wireless Performance
The Archer C5400X employs MU-MIMO and Airtime Fairness to balance the requests of every device with speed and precision. Calibrated metrics and sophisticated algorithms determine how the router divides air time and distributes dedicated Wi-Fi streams to each device, leaving you to focus on taking down the opposition instead of fighting your allies for bandwidth.
Far-Reaching Wi-Fi Range
Game from the basement to the garage and even the backyard with RangeBoost, which strengthens reception quality to reinforce connections in your home and keep both older and newer devices connected at greater distances than other routers.
With eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, you can connect PCs, smart TVs and game consoles to fast, wired connection without needing a switch.
Team two LAN ports using Link Aggregation to double connection speeds from 1 Gbps to 2 Gbps for Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices and PCs. Combine the WAN port with a LAN port to connect DOCSIS 3.1 modems for best-in-industry internet speeds.
Comprehensive Threat Protection

*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.
**MU-MIMO capability requires client devices that also support MU-MIMO.
