Great for home office or large household with busy network, the Linksys Max-Stream AC5400 (EA9500) combines ultra-fast AC Wi-Fi with Tri-Band design and MU-MIMO technology. As a result, you'll enjoy lag-free videoconferencing and fast file transfer, even while the rest of the family is streaming 4K or HD media in the living room. The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi app, available on iOS and Android, makes it easy to manage and monitor your network, right from the palm of your hand.
Step up to the Linksys Max-Stream AC5400 for lag-free productivity and entertainment.
The Max-Stream AC5400 Router is easy to set up and features three dedicated Wi-Fi bands for combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps*, four simultaneous data streams per band, a powerful 1.4 GHz processor, eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, and eight adjustable antennas.
Multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) technology enables the Linksys MAX-STREAM AC5400 Router to target multiple devices without interference or slowdown - almost like having an individual router dedicated to each of your devices. This allows you and other household members to connect to the Internet, stream media, and play online games simultaneously at faster speeds than traditional Wi-Fi.
Blazing-Fast Speeds from Three Wi-Fi Bands
With three dedicated, independent Wi-Fi bands that offer combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps*, you'll always have the bandwidth you need for your task. Tri-Band technology provides up to double the wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. Band 1 is 2.4 GHz with speeds of up to 1000 Mbps for older wireless-N and -G devices. Band 2 is a high-speed 5 GHz band for extremely fast file transfers and videoconferencing, while the third 5 GHz band delivers blazing Wi-Fi speeds ideal for online gaming and streaming.
Advanced Connectivity with Eight Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability - up to 10X faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections-including one fast USB 3.0 port-are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.
Room-to-Room Wi-Fi with Seamless Roaming
The MAX-STREAM AC5400 Wi-Fi Router features Seamless Roaming when paired with a MAX-STREAM range extender (sold separately) so enabled Wi-Fi devices will automatically switch to the strongest Wi-Fi signal.** You won't have to manually connect to the router or range extender when you move from one room to another - or even to your backyard. This means that you can move freely throughout your home while video chatting or streaming videos without experiencing dropped calls or buffering.
Pair a MAX-STREAM router with a MAX-STREAM range extender for more efficient home Wi-Fi that delivers a stronger, more powerful Wi-Fi signal to all your devices.

Eight Antennas for Optimal Wi-Fi Performance
The router features eight adjustable external antennas that provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring far-reaching Wi-Fi coverage. Unlike the two or three data streams found on standard routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams on each of the three Wi-Fi bands for stronger, faster performance.
Powerful Dual-Core Processor for Efficient Operation
Enjoy gaming without interruption from other networked devices. The MAX-STREAM AC5400 Router is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor that delivers the performance necessary for activities like multiplayer online gaming. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once--delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.
Targeted Signals Improve Wi-Fi Connections
The AC5400 improves wireless signal range by sending focused Wi-Fi signals to each mobile device, also known as Beamforming Technology. This increases the efficiency of your home Wi-Fi, enabling multiple household members to enjoy simultaneous high-bandwidth Wi-Fi activities like streaming, surfing, and gaming.
