The Linksys WRT3200ACM MU-MIMO high performance router is packaged in a rectangular white box featuring the name “WRT” in a colored gloss finish, along with an image of the behemoth itself followed by a brief description of internal specifications.
The back of the box gives a much more detailed description of “Tri-Stream 160 Technology,” which is the company’s method of utilizing three simultaneous 867Mbps streams on the 5GHz band to deliver 2.6Gbps peak speeds. Also displayed is a brief description of MU-MIMO technology and an illustration of how it offers simultaneous connectivity to multiple devices versus SU-MIMO’s one device at a time approach.
Upon opening the box, Linksys has carefully inserted the router’s four external antennas into four Styrofoam cutouts and padded the lining with extra foam to prevent shipping mishandling. The router itself is neatly tucked in the center, followed by documentation and accessories at the bottom.
The total contents of the box include the WRT3200ACM router itself, four external antennas, a Quick Start Guide, a power cable, a driver disc with documentation, and a 5-foot flat style Ethernet cable.
