About This Class

AC1750 class routers are the least expensive full 3x3 AC class routers you can buy. They combine a 3x3 N class 2.4 GHz radio and 3x3 5 GHz AC class radio and support the top link rates that standard 3x3 N and AC devices can provide. However, most devices are only 1x1 or 2x2 designs, so will not achieve the maximum link rates that AC1750 class routers can provide. Still, replacing a 2x2 AC router with a 3x3 AC1750 class router can provide a slight boost in performance due to higher router receive gain.

These routers can produce maximum link rates of 450 Mbps in the 2.4 GHz band when used with 3x3 or higher N or AC devices. However, most users will see only 217 Mbps maximum link rates in 2.4 GHz because routers must fall back to 20 MHz bandwidth mode if nearby networks are detected.

In the 5 GHz band, they can produce maximum link rates of 450 Mbps when used with 3x3 or higher N class devices and 1300 Mbps when used with 3x3 or higher AC devices.

Our tests have measured maximum wireless throughput of 120 - 149 Mbps in 2.4 GHz (20 MHz bandwidth mode) and 400 - 544 Mbps in 5 GHz using a 3x3 AC class device.
