FlashRouters has listed our best and most popular routers of last year and introduced you to the networking beast that is the Asus RT-AC87U, the fun hasn’t ended yet. Meet the Netgear R8000 DD-WRT AC3200 FlashRouter. The R8000 is a true behemoth device offering Tri-Band WiFi with six powerful adjustable external antennas and a 1 GHz Broadcom processor. Yes, you read that correctly. Six powerful adjustable external antennas.
What is Tri-Band WiFi?
The Netgear R8000 DD-WRT FlashRouter utilizes Tri-Band WiFi, meaning one 2.4 GHz band and two 5 GHz bands. More bands mean more room for devices, as you can assign your SmartTV, Xbox One, and iPad different networks within the device. No need to clog your network with unwanted traffic.
The six external antennas that make up these networks provide for the most range available from a router today. Looking to cover multiple floors? Stream Netflix from your laptop on your outdoor patio? The Netgear R8000 has you covered.
