Own Your Equipment and Eliminate Rental Fees
The Archer CR500 combines a high-performance cable modem and AC1200 Wi-Fi router into a single device, creating a fast, reliable home network.
When you own your modem, you can save per year by eliminating the monthly rental fees some ISP’s charge. Plus, you get better performance by upgrading to the latest technology.
16×4 Channel Bonding for Faster Internet
Many rental modems aren’t using the most up-to-date technology. The Archer CR500 uses DOCSIS 3.0 and channel bonding, which deliver throughput 16x faster than DOCSIS 2.0 and support DOCSIS speeds up to 680 Mbps.
With better throughput, you can replace your modem and speed up your internet for better performance on all of your devices.
ISP rate limiting makes the Archer CR500 ideal for cable subscription tiers up to 300Mbps*.
*Actual cable internet uplink and downlink speeds will vary according to your cable provider, MSO provisioning, and the speed tier of your subscription.
AC1200 Wi-Fi for HD Streaming + Beamforming
Stream movies and game online across your home with AC1200 Wi-Fi. The CR500’s dual 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands let you connect more devices to your network at once so everyone can enjoy what they love most.
And while you’re online, beamforming strengthens connections by helping the CR500’s antennas locate Wi-Fi devices and focus its wireless signal towards them.
