LINKSYS AC1900 Dual-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router - Open Source ReadyThe WRT1900ACS (AC1900) is the best router in its class. At speeds of 1.9 Gbps, it delivers unmatched performance for the most demanding networks. With 512 MB 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 Linksys Smart Wi-Fi with Network Map software for total home Wi-Fi control anywhere, anytime.
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi lets you access your network anytime, anywhere. Using your browser or the Smart Wi-Fi mobile app, you can:
• Prioritize devices or websites for video streaming and online gaming
• Control inappropriate or distracting content through the parental settings
• Monitor network activity and speed
• Turn Wi-Fi access on or off for any connected device
• Create a separate, password-protected guest network
Advanced users can further customise 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. Furthermore, the WRT1900ACS encourages expanded connectivity by supporting file sharing with: 1 x USB 3.0 port, 1 x eSATA/USB 2.0 port, 1 x Gigabit WAN port, 4 x Gigabit LAN Ports.
- Advanced 1.6 GHz dual-core processor to surf, stream, & game simultaneously
With a professional-grade 1.6 GHz dual-core ARM processor, the WRT1900ACS delivers faster throughput speeds and easily handles multiple data streams simultaneously. The result: better performance, particularly in today's multi-device homes.
- 512MB of RAM for improved data transfer
The WRT1900ACS comes equipped with 512MB of RAM that works in tandem with the 1.6GHz CPU to move movies, music, and other large files faster. With more than double the memory of its predecessor, the WRT1900ACS improves data transfer speeds, allowing you to do more, faster.
- USB 3.0, eSATA, & Gigabit Ethernet ports to share files
The WRT1900ACS has four Gigabit Ethernet ports that are perfect for transferring large media libraries at speeds 10X 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 eSATA port. The eSATA port also serves as a USB 2.0 port.
- Four external antennas for greater range & coverage
The WRT1900ACS features four external, adjustable high-performance antennas that provide strong, reliable coverage throughout your home. The unique antenna diversity technology onboard helps your laptop, tablet, smartphone, and other connected devices achieve an optimal connection, wherever they are in your home. The antennas also enhance coverage for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, keeping everyone gaming, downloading, and streaming without lag.
- Beamforming for stronger, more focused WI-FI connections
Designed especially for today's mobile-device households, the WRT1900ACS features Beamforming technology, which focuses wireless signals at a receiving device rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction.
- Open source ready
While the Linksys WRT1900ACS 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.
