Wireless-AC for Faster Speed and Reliability
Upgrade your wireless home network and enjoy speeds up to 3x faster than conventional wireless-N using the AC1600 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router from Linksys. Using wireless-AC technology, this router offers speeds up to AC1600 Mbps (N300 +AC1300) and a faster, stronger Wi-Fi connection. As the number of Wi-Fi-enabled devices in your home increases, wireless-AC makes it possible for you and your family to simultaneously stream movies or music and play online games–without interruption from a slow network connection. Offering gigabit Wi-Fi speeds, Wireless-AC technology also allows large video and music files to stream and sync more quickly. The Linksys AC1600 Smart Wi-Fi router includes a USB 3.0 port and four gigabit ports that let you connect multiple devices and increase your storage space, allowing you to quickly print, share, and store content across your network.
Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections
The Linksys AC1600 Smart Wi-Fi router features beamforming, an innovative technology that optimizes the wireless signal strength between your connected devices and router. Beamforming enables the router to identify and connect directly with other devices, rather than simply sending out wireless signals in a general direction. This results in faster network speeds, better wireless range, and reduced interference from other devices. It also helps extend the battery life of connected devices and reduce their power consumption because data is transferred more quickly.
Manage Your Home Network Remotely with Linksys Smart Wi-Fi
With Linksys Smart Wi-Fi you can access and control your home network from wherever you are using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. For example, you can set parental controls to restrict Internet access during certain times of the day and create unique, 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 a growing suite of apps that provide new ways to control and interact with your home Wi-Fi network. Block the Bad Stuff lets you add one of three levels of protective filtering to help safeguard your wireless network. Device Monitr allows you to monitor game consoles, tablet computers, and other devices, while NetProofer lets you restrict access to certain websites.
Upgrade Your Devices to Enjoy the Full Benefits of Wireless-AC
Using Linksys's family of wireless-AC peripherals, you can take full advantage of the improved speed and stability of wireless-AC. Linksys Universal Media Connector lets you connect wired devices such as game consoles and smart TVs to your Wi-Fi network and stream HD or even 3D HD video content. The connector operates on the 5 GHz band, resulting in less interference and a clearer signal. Additionally, the Linksys Dual Band AC1200 Wireless 3.0 Adapter (WUSB6300) enables you to upgrade your laptop or desktop computer to fully benefit from the faster speeds of wireless-AC technology to stream high-definition video or enjoy high-speed gaming.
