WRT1900AC the latest high end router from Linksys

The new high speed Linksys router is reminiscent of the legendary wrt54g.

The Linksys wrt54g router has been one of the most known and appreciated in the market thanks to a powerful internal hardware customization options multiplied power. Its processor, RAM and operating system based on linux made it the preferred choice for lovers of wireless networks.

Now the company has completely updated the WRT line with the new LINKSYS WRT1900AC a router that maintains the highest specifications to which we have been accustomed to, but adapted to the new tech with support for 802.11 ac dual-band services updated, such as the DLNA server capability, traffic prioritization, support for DDNS services, integrated speed test, shared printers, etc .


We see how it has gone from 2-4 adjustable and detachable antennas to give it greater reach in high speed networks. It also updates the support for smartphones and can manage the network from anywhere with mobile applications from the company itself.

One thing to acknowledge is support for OpenWRT, an initiative that emerged precisely to modify and further enhance the first WRT54Gwith the official cooperation of Linksys engineers now buyers can choose between using integrated OS from Linksys, or install OpenWRT for additional advanced features.
