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.
