Superior Wi-Fi Coverage

Four high-performance external antennas and high-powered amplifiers help the Archer C2600 create a strong, far-reaching network for your home. Beamforming technology further improves the router’s coverage by helping it locate wireless devices to form stronger, more reliable connections, even with mobile devices moving from room to room.

A Router You Can Show Off

An elegant, minimal design allows the Archer C2600 to blend well with any room decor. Its LEDs can be switched off to prevent distraction at night when placed in bedrooms or common spaces.

Blazing Wired Performance

The Archer C2600’s dual USB 3.0 ports run 10x faster than USB 2.0 for data transfer at lightning speed. Connect external drives to the ports and easily share files, photos, music, and video across your network. To help your wired devices achieve peak performance, the router’s four Gigabit Ethernet ports operate 10x faster than standard Ethernet.

Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications are based upon test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate and wireless coverage 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.
