ENGINEERED FOR ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE
Built on the foundation of our original WRT's open-source heritage, the Linksys WRT1200AC delivers superior network performance for the most demanding users. The WRT1200AC features two external antennas, a powerful 1.3GHz dual-core ARM, and Wireless-AC to provide high-speed Wi-Fi connections with exceptional range.
USB 3.0**, eSATA, & GIGABIT ETHERNET PORTS TO SHARE FILES
For competitive performance, we equipped the WRT1200AC with four Gigabit Ethernet ports featuring speeds up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet. Using the USB 3.0 port**, you can add external storage devices to share content across your network, or a printer for the office. For those with an external SATA storage device, the WRT1200AC is outfitted with an eSATA port for convenience and optimal data transfer rates. This port can also serve as a USB 2.0 port.
DUAL-BAND ANTENNAS AND BEAMFORMING FOR PROFESSIONAL-GRADE COVERAGE
To provide fast, reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home or office, the WRT1200AC features two high-performance antennas engineered to enhance 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band wireless connections. With adjustable antennas and Beamforming technology delivering a focused signal to individual devices, you'll experience faster network speeds, better range, and reduced interference from other devices for strong, stable Wi-Fi connections.
FAST 1.3GHz DUAL-CORE PROCESSOR TO SURF, STREAM, & GAME SIMULTANEOUSLY
With a professional-grade, 1.3GHz dual-core ARM processor, the WRT1200AC 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.
OPEN SOURCE READY
While the Linksys WRT1200AC provides an outstanding experience via Smart Wi-Fi immediately out of the box, advanced users can further modify the router with open source firmware. Developed for use with OpenWRT, an open source, Linux-based operating system, the router offers an additional layer of customization to suit your needs.
