Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router
Bring unparalleled Wi-Fi performance into your home with the WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router from Linksys. Featuring a unique four external antenna configuration and a powerful 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, the router is engineered to support active online households by eliminating dead spots in multistory buildings. Multiple users can simultaneously game online, stream movies, and transfer files without lagging interruptions. In addition to four Gigabit Ethernet ports, the router provides connectivity to wired devices via a USB 3.0 port and dual eSATA/USB 2.0 port, letting you transfer huge files without the wait. The WRT1900AC also is equipped with exclusive Linksys Smart Wi-Fi software for total home network control and is open source ready for advanced users who want to customize their firmware.
Professional-Grade Processor to Handle Data
The WRT1900AC is powered by a commanding 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM processor that can handle copious amounts of data extremely fast, easily supporting multiple online users and digital devices all at once. Households won’t suffer slow transfer rates when web surfing, video streaming or online gaming.
Four High-Performance Antennas and Dual Band Wi-Fi Coverage
The Linksys WRT1900AC was the industry’s first router to feature four external, adjustable antennas to ensure optimal coverage and maximum signal strength at all times. By utilizing four high performance antennas, the router enhances dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) performance to eliminate dead zones and spotty coverage in the far corners of your home. Dual wireless bands deliver transfer speeds of up to 1.3 Gbps for a strong, reliable Wi-Fi signal in the home. A high-powered amplifier helps maximize signal strength and coverage, even in multistory homes.
Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections
With Wireless-AC technology, the WRT1900AC 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, reduced interference from other devices, and stronger Wi-Fi connections.
Attach External Storage Device to Share Content with eSATA, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0
The WRT1900AC is built for wired connection to an array of digital devices using the enhanced USB 3.0 or the unique eSATA/USB2.0 combo port. By integrating 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.
Open Source Ready
Advanced users can further customize the WRT1900AC, which will have open source firmware from third-party websites. Developed for use with OpenWRT, an open-source, Linux-based operating system, users can modify the router to suit a particular application.
Wireless Repeater Mode and Wireless Bridge Mode for a Powerful Wi-Fi Network
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.

Trying to add some information you might not get in the standard review, this is a brief comparison with the NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1900 router which costs significantly less. I love both devices, but my experience might help you decide which to get (or others). I'm a dilettante home geek, not a pro, and most of my testing is with media streaming rather than online gaming.
First, the advertised top wi-fi speed of 1300 Mbps using the 5GHz band is pretty much only if you are using an 802.11AC adapter on the client side. I still don't see 802.11AC that widely available, especially if you (like me) tend to buy older PC's and laptops. I've been using an ASUS (USB-AC56) Wireless - AC1200 Dual-Band USB 3.0 Adapter for testing on a couple of laptops and my home brew box, and the speed increase is noticeable and measurable over all other 802 protocols as advertised.
Wireless speed: I don't find any appreciable difference in 5GHz between the Nighthawk or the WRT1900AC, and your actual data throughput WILL vary due to all sorts of environmental issues. Both routers give outstanding performance through the USB 3.0 port. I've got a 3 TB USB 3.Read more ›
Linksys support is divided into three tiers, and they did try and help me quickly. The issue finally made its way to the engineering support team (Tier 3), who told me they have had many of these routers having this rebooting issue, and they are trying to capture the hardware involved, since the ones they have had returned have not been able to duplicate the problem.
So a new 250.00 router that hasn't worked since it came out of the box, 4 days on the phone and in email with Linksys support as this wound its way up the tiers, Multiple reconfigurations, wipes, firmware reloads. A customer service department that has NO idea how to process the exchange for the WRT line, another 250 for advance ship of replacement, Linksys generated UPS return labels with the wrong address printed on them, a ton of frustration and wasted time, and another weekend waiting for the replacement.
This has been a very expensive, and time consuming purchase. I would highly advise anyone looking at this router to wait a few weeks while their engineering team figures out what the issues are with the product. While I often sign on to beta test products, I have never had to pay 500.00 to do it without ever even being asked.Read more ›
The directions are very basic and simple and if you follow them you should have no issues. Without trying to be too confusing and detailed, I initially tried to log in and run setup directly by entering the IP address into the browser window but it didn’t seem to like that. The issue was probably more to do with the web browser than the router. After I went back to the directions and used one of my laptops to access the wireless network, installation/setup took about 5 minutes.
So far it has been running great. I have been trying to stress it out but it has taken everything I can throw at it without a hiccup. Right now I am transferring a couple hundred gig of data from an old Iomega NAS that is on its last leg over to a Synology 1513+ using the gigabit LAN ports. According to Windows, transfer speed is averaging 22 MB/second (My old router averaged 1.09 MB/second). At the same time I am surfing the internet & writing this review with a laptop on the 2.4 GHz, my wife is streaming video with an IPad on the 5 GHz and I am streaming MLB.TV in High Definition on my smart TV also on 5GHz. The wrt1900 hasn’t even broken a sweat. It’s a little warm to the touch but still whisper quiet. Using my old router, by now MLB.TV would be looking like standard def, not to mention all the extra buffering, crashes and restarts it would go through.
Although the price is pretty steep, having a total of 14 devices on a wireless router that is capable of managing all of them is worth the extra I had to dole out.Read more ›
