USB 3.0, eSATA, & GIGABIT ETHERNET PORTS
TO SHARE FILES

The WRT1900AC's four Gigabit Ethernet ports are perfect for transferring large media libraries at speeds 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. To stream or send large files across your network at high speed, simply connect a flash drive to the USB 3.0 port or an external SATA storage device to the unique eSATA port. For printing or working with smaller files, the eSATA port also serves as a USB 2.0 port.

FOUR EXTERNAL ANTENNAS FOR GREATER RANGE & COVERAGE

The WRT1900AC features four external adjustable high-performance antennas that provide strong, reliable coverage throughout your home. This unique antenna diversity technology helps your laptop, tablet, smartphone, and other connected devices achieve optimal performance, wherever they are in the home. The antennas also enhance coverage for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, keeping everyone simultaneously gaming, downloading, and streaming without lag.

BEAMFORMING FOR STRONGER, MORE FOCUSED Wi-Fi CONNECTIONS

Designed especially for today's mobile-device household, the WRT1900AC features beamforming technology, which focuses wireless signals at a receiving device rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction.

Beamforming also reduces interference from other devices for stronger Wi-Fi connections. It increases the efficiency of your network and expands its range, enabling you to enjoy high-bandwidth activities like streaming and gaming with ease.

FAST 1.3 GHz DUAL-CORE PROCESSOR TO SURF, STREAM, & GAME SIMULTANEOUSLY

With a professional-grade, 1.3 GHz dual-core ARM processor, the WRT1900AC is one of the fastest Wireless-AC routers in its class. Unlike standard single-core processors which have to switch between data streams and aren't as suited for multitasking, a dual-core processor can handle multiple data streams simultaneously. The result: better efficiency and performance, particularly in today's multi-device world.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, fast, not too expensive. The router is very good, easy to use, lots of features, good performance, trouble free. I don't get the WiFi speeds reported on available evaluations, but I get about double what my old router did. The firmware does have bugs, not many or big show stoppers, but support, or the lack of support, makes them annoying. Support is the only negative, the forum is a joke, with a couple of guys flooding it with useless posts, and chat/telephone support is not good, I spent an hour or more trying, and failing, to actually record a bug report, the person on the other side kept insisting that I do "just another test", as if everything I've done didn't prove anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible range Bought on Black Friday and did not use it till I moved into my house which was a couple months later. I was excited to use it only to find it had limited range and it seemed to have a slower speed than it should have. Just to make sure I bought a different router which didn't have as impressive specs but similar specs. The comparison router definitely had better range which only had three antennas not four. It also seemed to load faster. Very disappointing especially how expensive this router is. Linksys you have some things to fix. I thought you were the best so I bought your product but that was a mistake especially at the $200 price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys WRT1900AC This device is a piece of an Engineering marvel. We had searched for a device that can accommodate a simple parental control by device MAC address and day/time of the week. Some products don’t have such controls, the ones that have it require a monthly subscription that may not be affordable by the user. WRT1900AC serves this requirement very well without breaking the bank. Very well done. You may even have an edge over the competition if you develop a threat dictionary managed by a Linksys Intrusion Central repository that routers can constantly update their dictionary from, that will be a genius thing and a marketable edge over the competition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Linksys 1900AC Beware! The first 1900AC failed. I was sent the replacement which was a 1900AC V2 and ift has performance issues. I work in IT (16 years experience) and for years i have deployed almost every version of Linksys router. Explain to me how a EA6300 AC ($100) router out performs a 1900AC ($200) router. I pay for the top tier internet service and the speed differs by 15Mb download and 3MB upload when comparing the two. I am going to pursue a replacement and god forbid a refund. I am extremely dissatisfied. If Linksys (now owned by Belkin) does not do the right thing i will start purchasing and deploying a different companies routers and switches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Unit Once I got the unit to link up to my Smart Wifi account, any issues I was having evaporated. It stays fully connected with no dropouts. Its fast and solid. I use it with the companion switch on my LAN of 15 devices and it handles that task effortlessly. I suggest that you create your Linksys Smart Wifi account first on the Linksys website and then DON'T choose to setup the router manually. This is where I went wrong. If the unit doesn't connect to the Smart Wifi account, it doesn't seem to be as stable as when it is connected. I am totally happy with this purchase now and have the capability to expand my network even further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speed and easy setup I bought my new Linksys WRT1900AC AC1900 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router to replace another Linksys that I had used for over 15 years. This one has great range and I can use it anywhere on my property; outside, inthe basment, on the deck etc.which is great for using a tablet or laptop. I also purchased at the same time, a Linksys SE4008 WRT 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch. Gives me plenty of places to plug in my stuff !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys has made installation simpler. Without going into detail, I called support and ended up upgrading from my "old" 6500 to the new AC1900. Somehow, the words Linksys and Cisco give me a warm fuzzy when it comes tro network capacity and security. Since the performance is really limited to my old PC, I can't say anything is much faster. But, at least I think I'm safer, and they can't give me any more stuff about being up to date with the technology. Ergo, I have no technical basis for a review except to say they made the installation of the AC1900 (including the associated management application) much easier than the 6500. What more could you want, but the winning lottery number?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't get the wi-fi to work right I purchased a WRT1900AC router over 4 months ago, went through setup and everything seemed to work well except that the range was much less than the WRT610N that I replaced. Within a week I experienced problems with the Wi-Fi dropping out for no apparent reason. All hard wired connections did not drop out so I knew it was not my ISP problem. I thought I had was a range issue so I bought a RE200 range extender and this did help the range issue but not the dropped Wi-Fi problem. Over the next couple of months I relocated the router until last week I did some rewiring and placed it 3 ft from my laptop. I still have the problem and I am now ready to trash this router and buy a replacement that works. Not a Linksys!!!!
