Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router
The professional-grade WRT1900ACS Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router from Linksys offers speeds up to N600 + AC1300 Mbps in addition to a 1.6GHz dual-core processor that's designed to push data through the network at lightning-fast speeds.
With 512MB of RAM, more than double the memory of its predecessor, it improves data transfer speeds so large files transfer more quickly. Multiple users can simultaneously game online, stream movies, and transfer files without lag.
The four external antenna configuration expands Wi-Fi coverage in multistory buildings and improves signal strength. The WRT1900ACS also features exclusive Linksys Smart Wi-Fi with Network Map software for total home Wi-Fi control anywhere, anytime. The router is Open Source-ready for users who want to customize their firmware.
Professional-Grade 1.6GHz Processor Handles Multiple Users
The WRT1900ACS boasts a faster, more powerful 1.6GHz dual-core ARM processor that can handle copious amounts of data extremely fast to easily support multiple online users and digital devices at once. Households won't suffer slow transfer rates when web surfing, video streaming, online gaming, and transferring large files, allowing for multitasking without lag.
More Memory for Faster Data Transfers
The WRT1900ACS comes equipped with 512MB of RAM to move movies, music, and other large files at faster speeds. Possessing more than double the memory of its predecessor, the WRT1900ACS improves data transfer speeds, allowing you to do more in less time. The large memory, combined with the 1.6 GHz dual-core ARM processor, provides improvements in wired, wireless, and storage device performance.
Four High-Performance Antennas Enhance Dual-Band Wi-Fi Coverage
The Linksys WRT1900ACS features four external adjustable antennas to ensure optimal coverage and maximum signal strength. By utilizing four high performance antennas, the router enhances dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) performance to expand Wi-Fi coverage. High-power amplifiers help maximize signal strength and coverage, even in multistory homes.
Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections
With Wireless-AC technology, the WRT1900ACS router leverages Beamforming, an innovative technology that enables the router to strengthen the wireless signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction. This results in faster network speeds, better wireless range, and stronger Wi-Fi connections.
Flexible Connectivity with eSATA, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 Port
The WRT1900ACS is built for an array of digital devices using the USB 3.0 or the eSATA/USB 2.0 combo port. With the eSATA port, users who prefer to attach an external SATA storage device can utilize the eSATA cable that came with their storage unit and benefit from optimal data transfer speeds. The eSATA port can also be used as a USB 2.0 port.
Advanced users can further customize the WRT1900ACS, which will have Open Source firmware from third-party websites. Developed for use with OpenWRT, an open-source, Linux-based operating system, the router can be modified to suit a particular application.
Wireless Repeater Mode and Wireless Bridge Mode for a More
Users who own a second WRT1900ACS will enjoy a more powerful wireless signal using the Wireless Repeater and Wireless Bridge modes. Now you can extend the Wi-Fi signal for both of the router's dual bands (2.4GHz and 5GHz) with Wireless Repeater Mode, or just one of the bands with Wireless Bridge Mode. Either option effectively turns the WRT1900ACS into a powerful range extender or wireless bridge, adding range and speed to wired and wireless connections on your network.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I purchased this in March 2017, and tried so hard to make it work for my household. I shrugged off the wireless lock-ups or weird issues as something that I was configuring incorrectly. I even tried the tried-and-true DD-WRT firmware (which is now mostly compatible with the WRT3200ACM) to see if the issues would disappear.
They did not. I still have the exact same problem as of May 29.
Basically, what happens is this: after a variable amount of time from being rebooted, the wireless radios will work and everything is fine. However, within a few hours to a couple of days, the wireless radios stop working. The router will not accept new wireless connections, and existing connections can't access internet. Wired (Ethernet) appears to work during this time.
The current rumor circulating on the internet is that the wireless chipset's driver, published by Marvell, is broken or doesn't work well. Returning and replacing these routers has been proven not to be effective at resolving this issue, as it's likely you'll receive another defective product. So at some point down the road if you buy one of these you'll likely get stabbed in the back by the poor wireless driver. Until there's lots of evidence that this is fixed and that both Linksys and Marvell have their act together, you should not buy this router. Like me, you'll end up eating a ~200 cost for a broken product.
Contacted Linksys support Nov. 27th, after some brief trouble shooting with the tech, they determined my unit needed to be RMA'd...fine. I gave them a credit card number for an advanced replacement the said would be arriving in 7 business days. On Dec. 7th I notified my replacement router had just shipped....Yes, that's right.. almost two business weeks just for an "advanced" replacement to ship! I called Linksys and was told they had trouble finding an available replacement to ship. That sounded ominous but I am in it now. I was assure I would be receiving the replacement sometime within the next week (mean while there is a hold on my credit card for the cost of the replacement waiting for this replacement to arrive so I can return the malfunctioning one).
We will see how the replacement performs when it arrives. But for now, I would recommend checking the other available routers before purchasing the WRT3200ACM (or if you do...keep the your old router as a spare until Linksys figures out how to properly handle problematic products).
Received my replacement unit from Linksys in a couple of days....the same WRT3200ACM model. Got it online, updated the firmware...bam same problem.
Now on the Linksys support site only a firmware version from months ago is available with a note that people experiencing problems should roll back the firmware to the old version (which btw doesnt address the KRACK exploit vulnerabilities). I did the roll back as instructed. Still having issues with devices staying connected.
Guess I will have to stand in line with the other WRT3200ACM owners waiting for the Linksys team to let the customers be their beta testers. Wondering if Linksys will make this right.
Still dealing with this fiasco. Called Linksys Support again 12/26 because I am...like everyone else having problems the WRT3200 ACM router dropping wifi. Was told they were very sorry and they would ship me a EA8300 overnight as a replacement. I called them on 01/02 since I had not received the replacement nor the promised email with a tracking number. Support told me they had a record of the replacement request but it had not been properly finalized by "Tech Support". Now I am again waiting on a promised email notifying me the replacement has shipped.
So in review...If you would like a month long odyssey of tech support calls, hours on hold listening to bad music, and to be witness to a failed support program and a broken product with no fix in sight...This is the product and company for you!

**Acceder al sitio de Linksys smart wifi te permite un sin fin de funciones, desde ver cuanto consume cada dispositivo conectado, habilitar una red provisional para invitados, dar prioridad de bando de ancha a ciertos dispositivos e incluso plataformas entre otras más.
En cuanto al envió llego por UPS, y llego en tiempo pero el problema que veo es que la actualización en su sitio sobre el estatus del pedido tardan en actualizar bastante, algo que con pedidos de importación con DHL no sucede.
Ya se lanzó el nuevo firmware y con eso resolvieron los problemas y por lo tanto le vuelvo a dar 5 estrellas. Aun no le cargo firmware open source (ellos aun andan mejorando sus wifi drivers), pero creo que este router será una de los mejores para estos fines.
La señal es adecuada y no tengo problemas.
(Try in another Socket) and keep router ventilated... i just follow the instructions and i have one spare cooling pad for laptop.. i just used it and problem becomes disappear... so if anyone has felt same issue just follow this method and see the change in this monster...Hope It Would be helpful.....
