Linksys WRT1900AC Wireless AC Router
Performance Perfected Engineered to deliver best-in-class networking performance, the Linksys Wrt1900Ac Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router delivers an unmatched user experience and ultimate Wi-Fi coverage for your home. We've upgraded the iconic Linksys blue-and-black design and outfitted the router with the latest Wireless-AC platform along with the industry's first four antenna configuration with a powerful 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM to provide exceptional signal strength and range to simultaneously support multiple users. We also added a unique dual eSATA/USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 port to the Linksys Wrt1900Ac to conveniently connect an array of devices and experience lightning-fast transfer speeds. The Wrt1900Ac features exclusive Smart Wi-Fi software to monitor and control your network anywhere and anytime. It's our first router to offer the Network Map smart tool, providing an intuitive at-a-glance view of your entire network. For advanced users who want to customize their firmware, the Wrt1900Ac stays true to its lineage by offering an Open WRT compatible firmware with Open Source ready capabilities that allow advanced users to expand the capabilities of the Router. Eliminate dead zones--even in large multistory homes--with four adjustable external antennas. Four High-Performance Antennas for Maximum Coverage and Reliability To provide strong, reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home, the Wrt1900Ac is the first router in the market to feature four external adjustable antennas that ensures your Wi-Fi signal is always at maximum strength, keeping everyone simultaneously gaming, downloading and streaming without lag. The antennas also enhance 2.5 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneous dual wireless bands performance for a strong, reliable Wi-Fi signal that eliminates dead zones even in multistory homes. The antennas can be detached for future upgrades. Leveraging the Wireless-AC standard, the Wrt1900Ac delivers innovative Beamforming technology enabling the router to strengthen the wireless signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction. Now you can experience faster network speeds, better wireless range, reduced interference from other devices, and stronger Wi-Fi connections. Fastest Dual-Core ARM Processor to Surf, Stream, and Game Simultaneously With a professional-grade, 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM CPU the Wrt1900Ac is one of the most powerful Wireless-AC routers in its class capable of moving data at unprecedented rates in even the busiest of networks. Pushing wired and wireless speeds to their ultimate capabilities, the Linksys Wrt1900Ac router can easily support multiple users at once--whether they're streaming music, watching HD videos, or playing online games. Ideal for downloading and transferring huge video/photo libraries with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, a USB 3.0 port, and dual eSATA/USB 2.0 ports. Most Advanced Wired Connections For blazing-fast performance, we equipped the Wrt1900Ac with four Gigabit Ethernet ports--which are 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet to provide the fastest wired speeds. Using the USB 3.0 port, you can add external storage or other devices to share content across your network. For those with an external Sata storage device, the Wrt1900Ac is outfitted with a unique eSATA port for added convenience and optimal data transfer rates; it can also serve as a USB 2.0 port. Monitor and Control Your Network--Anywhere, Anytime With the industry-leading Smart Wi-Fi software you can monitor and control a home network from anywhere, anytime using a PC or mobile device. You can set parental controls to restrict Internet access during certain times of the day and create secure Wi-Fi passwords for your guests. You can also monitor activity on your home network, add new devices, and check upload and download speeds. In addition, Linksys Smart Wi-Fi allows you to prioritize which devices on your network receive the most bandwidth to reduce lag times and buffering when you're streaming HD media or gaming. Your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi account also gives you access to apps that provide additional ways to control and interact with your home Wi-Fi network. Wrt1900Ac is the first Linksys router to incorporate the Network Map tool in Smart Wi-Fi when using your Smart Wi-Fi account. Network Map provides a visual overview of your network allowing you to see all devices on your network, their online status and signal strength, and also measure how much bandwidth they're using at any time. It also allows you to create personalized identifiable names so that you can identify your connected devices. Open Source Ready While the Linksys Wrt1900Ac provides an outstanding experience via Smart Wi-Fi immediately out of the box, advanced users can further modify the router, which will have Open Source firmware available. Developed for use with OpenWRT, an open source, Linux-based operating system, the router offers an additional layer of customization to suit an individual's needs. Wireless Repeater Mode and Wireless Bridge Mode for a More Powerful Wi-Fi Network Signal Users who own a second Wrt1900Ac will enjoy a more powerful wireless signal using the Smart Wi-Fi interface. Now you can extend the Wi-Fi signal for both of the router's dual bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with Wireless Repeater Mode, or just one of the bands with Wireless Bridge Mode. Either option effectively turns the Wrt1900Ac into a powerful range extender or wireless bridge, adding range and speed to wired and wireless connections on your network. Advanced Security to Stay Safely Connected To keep unauthorized users from accessing your data, the Wrt1900Ac offers Wi-Fi Protected Setup along with Wpa2 encryption and an SPI firewall for maximum network security. Parental controls enable you to restrict Internet access for children.
