A few months ago I decided it was time to update not only my older cable modem but also upgrade the router which I had been using for over 4 years. With the newest capabilities of the higher speed from my provider, XFinity, I wanted to purchase my own modem vs renting and with that make sure the speeds in the household would benefit from the newer technology. I had been on a N class modem but with Hulu, Netflix and even our broadcast show using more bandwidth, it was time.

An upgrade from the companies previous WRT1900AC, the ACS model featured the elimination of a fan and the inclusion of a 1.6Ghz processor and doubling of the memory to help handle the off loading of signals throughout the network. The Linksys WRT1900ACS offers a simultaneous dual band 2.4GHZ and 5.0GHZ allowing the user of the faster speeds with twice bandwidth and avoiding interference from selectable dual band models.

We had to wait a few weeks for the Linksys WRT1900ACS to show up on shelves, the previous model was and still is available an can save a few bucks over the newer ACS however the wait was worth it. Tech users will also love the Open Source capabilities of the WRT allowing it to run DD-WRT. Safety for users has been built in to those that would want to return to the easy to use Linksys Smart Wi-Fi interface on the WRT1900ACS.

"I love the ability to prioritize devices or even website where I visit for streaming content. Parents and business owners can also make sure certain sites are blocked out of your network. This can easily be accomplished with east to use parental controls."

Most of the settings on your router, including the media prioritization can be managed from a Free App from Linksys which can be downloaded to your device. We love the Linksys WRT1900ACS for its performance and ease of use in set up.

Attach a USB 3.0 Device or eSATA and share the files across the network easily without setting up each computer. Plans are in place to expand this funtionality and possibly offer this feature to those wanting to connect from outside the network.
