Performance Perfected

Engineered to deliver best-in-class networking performance, the Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router delivers an unmatched user experience and ultimate Wi-Fi coverage for your home. We've upgraded the iconic Linksys blue-and-black design and outfitted the router with the latest Wireless-AC platform along with the industry's first four antenna configuration with a powerful 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM to provide exceptional signal strength and range to simultaneously support multiple users. We also added a unique dual eSATA/USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0 port to the Linksys WRT1900AC to conveniently connect an array of devices and experience lightning-fast transfer speeds.

The WRT1900AC features exclusive SMART Wi-Fi software to monitor and control your network anywhere and anytime. It's our first router to offer the Network Map smart tool, providing an intuitive at-a-glance view of your entire network. For advanced users who want to customize their firmware, the WRT1900AC stays true to its lineage by offering an Open WRT compatible firmware with Open Source ready capabilities that allow advanced users to expand the capabilities of the Router.

Four High-Performance Antennas

Eliminate dead zones--even in large multistory homes--with four adjustable external antennas. View larger.

Four High-Performance Antennas for Maximum Coverage and Reliability

To provide strong, reliable Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home, the WRT1900AC is the first router in the market to feature four external adjustable antennas that ensures your Wi-Fi signal is always at maximum strength, keeping everyone simultaneously gaming, downloading and streaming without lag. The antennas also enhance 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneous dual wireless bands performance for a strong, reliable Wi-Fi signal that eliminates dead zones even in multistory homes. The antennas can be detached for future upgrades.

Leveraging the Wireless-AC standard, the WRT1900AC delivers innovative Beamforming technology enabling the router to strengthen the wireless signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction. Now you can experience faster network speeds, better wireless range, reduced interference from other devices, and stronger Wi-Fi connections.

Fastest Dual-Core ARM Processor to Surf, Stream, and Game Simultaneously

With a professional-grade, 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM CPU the WRT1900AC is one of the most powerful Wireless-AC routers in its class capable of moving data at unprecedented rates in even the busiest of networks. Pushing wired and wireless speeds to their ultimate capabilities, the Linksys WRT1900AC router can easily support multiple users at once--whether they're streaming music, watching HD videos, or playing online games.

Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router

Ideal for downloading and transferring huge video/photo libaries with four Gigabit Ethernet ports, a USB 3.0 port, and dual eSATA/USB 2.0 ports. View larger.

Most Advanced Wired Connections

For blazing-fast performance, we equipped the WRT1900AC with four Gigabit Ethernet ports--which are 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet to provide the fastest wired speeds. Using the USB 3.0 port, you can add external storage or other devices to share content across your network. For those with an external SATA storage device, the WRT1900AC is outfitted with a unique eSATA port for added convenience and optimal data transfer rates; it can also serve as a USB 2.0 port.

Smart Wi-Fi Monitor and Control From Anywhere

Monitor and Control Your Network--Anywhere, Anytime With the industry-leading SMART Wi-Fi software you can monitor and control a home network from anywhere, anytime using a PC or mobile device. You can set parental controls to restrict Internet access during certain times of the day and create 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 apps that provide additional ways to control and interact with your home Wi-Fi network.

WRT1900AC is the first Linksys router to incorporate the Network Map tool in SMART Wi-Fi when using your SMART Wi-Fi account. Network Map provides a visual overview of your network allowing you to see all devices on your network, their online status and signal strength, and also measure how much bandwidth they're using at any time. It also allows you to create personalized identifiable names so that you can identify your connected devices.

Open Source Ready for Complete Customization

While the Linksys WRT1900AC provides an outstanding experience via SMART Wi-Fi immediately out of the box, advanced users can further modify the router, which will have Open Source firmware available from third-party websites such as openWRT.org. Developed for use with OpenWRT, an open source, Linux-based operating system, the router offers an additional layer of customization to suit an individual's needs.

Advanced Security to Stay Safely Connected

To keep unauthorized users from accessing your data, the WRT1900AC offers Wi-Fi Protected Setup along with WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall for maximum network security. Parental controls enable you to restrict Internet access for children.

Compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac

Great but one fault, April 21st, 2014
I have primarily used Linksys routers. The couple of times I tried other routers, I truly regretted it. I now only buy Linksys. I like how quickly you can take it out of the box, put it in place of your old router, plug it in, and go! No CD's, no Password upgrades, etc. You can do all of this later at your convenience. I like that you can set up 4 wireless signals, including 2 unencrypted signals that require browser log-ins instead. This is a huge help for all of my previously incompatible components. Also, I can change passwords at different intervals for different family members. I have one major nuisance. I have to change the channel on my 5 GHZ wireless one time a day every day to lock in a steady signal. On day 1, I locked in channel 1. On day 2, I locked in channel 2. On day 3, I locked in channel 3. On day 4, I locked in channel 1. Every day, it worked perfectly the first time I locked in a new channel selection. I have not tried to determine if it is a router or PC problem though. I have to dig out my other PCs to check.

Awesome Router!!!!!, April 18th, 2014

Great router, missing advanced QOS functionality, April 16th, 2014
I'd love to give this router 5 stars, but with the lack of a full QOS system I'm a bit disappointed. The media prioritization feature is a joke at best. Linksys/Belkin should really consider adding advanced QOS settings to this router, similar to what's available with the 3rd party firmwares. I'm waiting on the release of the 3rd party firmware for this router so I can address QOS myself. If QOS is not a concern/need for you, you will love this router. Great range and speed, and extremely easy setup as usual.

Great Speed, Easy Setup, April 13th, 2014
Bought this to replace a Linksys EA6900 that was dying, my laptop with an 802.1AC card gets the same internet speed as my wired devices and with Comcast Blast now at 105Mb speed, my connection screams. Unplugged the EA6900. plugged this in and it recognized everything. Only thing that would have been nice is if it could have copied the DHCP settings but that was only a small thing to recreate.
