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.

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.
