*450 Mbps is the maximum aggregate wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11n standard specifications achievable using three streams of 150 Mbps each. 600 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate achieved in an exclusive enhanced mode by using three streams of 200 Mbps each. 1300 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE 802.11ac standard specifications achievable using three streams of 433 Mbps each. Actual data throughput and range will vary depending upon network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction and network overhead. 1900 Mbps is the maximum wireless signal rate achieved when using two bands (5 GHz + 2.4 GHz) of three streams simultaneously. Maximum speed and range is achievable when used with same enhanced mode technology. Technology based on IEEE 802.11ac standard specifications.

†To achieve N600 speeds on 2.4 GHz, a Wi-Fi adapter which supports 256-QAM 802.11n is required
Technology based on IEEE 802.11ac standard specifications.
