Linksys WRT1900ACS overview

  • 1Description

With a 1.6 GHz dual-core ARM processor, 512MB DDR3 RAM memory, and 128MB Flash memory, the WRT1900ACS Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router from Linksys is a dual band router with the processing power to handle multiple data streams simultaneously. Take advantage of enhanced wireless network functionality as the WRT1900AC supports wireless 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking standards and functions on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. With simultaneous dual-band connectivity you benefit from data transfer rates up to 1.9 Gbps, which is perfect for streaming HD content, online gaming, and more.

The WRT1900ACS router features four detachable external antennas, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, one eSATA port, one USB 2.0 port, and one USB 3.0 port. The four upgradable antennas provide expansive wireless networking connectivity while the four Gigabit Ethernet ports ensure a fast, reliable, wired networking option. Additionally, the integrated eSATA port, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports make it simple to attach peripherals such as external hard drives.

For enhanced networking functionality the WRT1900ACS comes equipped with Smart Wi-Fi software giving you the ability to monitor nearly every aspect of your network. Whether on a PC or mobile device you can monitor your network, set parental controls, restrict network access, and more. This router is also open-source ready giving advanced users the ability to modify the router including the option to take advantage of available open source firmware.

Enhanced Performance
With an advanced 1.6 GHz dual-core CPU and 512MB of RAM, the WRT1900ACS delivers improvements in wired, wireless, and network storage performance over its predecessor, the WRT1900AC. At speeds up to N600 + AC1300 Mbps, the WRT1900ACS meets the needs of demanding home Wi-Fi networks. Equipped with a four-antenna configuration, the router provides exceptional signal strength and range. Advanced users also have the option of modifying the router with open source firmware.
Advanced 1.6 GHz Dual-Core Processor
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.
512 MB of RAM for Improved Data Transfers
The WRT1900ACS comes equipped with 512 MB of RAM that works in tandem with the 1.6 GHz 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
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 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 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.

    Linksys WRT1900ACS reviews

    WRT1900ACS Dual-Band Wireless-AC1900 Gigabit Router with 1.6 GHz CPU is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 531.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Wifi Router !!! I'm liking this new version WRT1900ACS with its new features Dual Core 1.6GHz, 128MB flash, & 512 !!!! MB DDR3 RAM !!!. I am currently running 4 pc's and 22 wifi devices connected with no drop. I'm glad I choose this new ACS over any other router out in the market. I also paired this ACS model with Linksys newest switches model WRT8 Ports Gigabyte & with the Linksys model SE3005 /5 ports.... I strongly believe I made the right choice. I would like to see Linksys built a big big FAT wifi router just for the looks. My last thought, good job Linksys ! WRT1900ACS is a winner..

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful & Reliable, Lacks Features I tried and returned five comparable routers before settling on the WRT1900ACS (v2). The WiFi is always fast and reliable, and the signal is consistently strong across my medium-sized house. My only complaint is about the admin interface; there are still a few bugs that should be fixed in future firmware updates. For example, after upgrading the firmware, the OpenVPN settings get erased, and you must reset all settings to defaults in order to restore the OpenVPN functionality. Also, it would be nice to have more advanced control of various settings, such as pushing a custom search domain to LAN DHCP clients, rather than using the one obtained from ISP via WAN DHCP.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Setup and Great Features It took me about 10 minutes to install and get connected to the internet opening the browser...didn't need to use the installation cd. The easiest router installation there can be. This router replaces my old one band WRT320n router and what a difference in the speed. Went from 300Mbps with the old router to 866Mbps with this one...(please see uploaded pics)!, and this is on wireless not hardwired! The Smart Wifi has some very good tools to setup the router as you please. Streaming 9 devices at the same time and still getting the 866Mbps on my laptop without any problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly Pleased with the WRT1900ACS I moved from the E3000 to the 1900ACS for two reasons and those were better parent controls and hopefully better wireless coverage. I am pleased with the results in both cases. However, improvements in the guest control feature as well as parental controls would make this a superb router for those needing such features. I have had to restart the router a few times to be able to access the wireless side of the router. Using three different wireless devices produced the same message "unable to authenticate". Once the router was restarted all devices were then able to use the wireless connection. Not really sure why this happens, but it has only happened 3 times in about a month.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, works great. I usually stay comfortably behind the technology curve at home (frugal and just don't care about the latest gadgets) but I bought this unit to serve my two new smart TV's (what was I thinking waiting so long for 1080p HD?) and it is great. I use computers every day at work but I am not well versed in setup or any system admin stuff. This router has simple setup instructions and it was very fast and easy to setup using the browser on my mac laptop. It is working perfectly and I am very pleased with it. I'd certainly recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major upgrade I upgraded to the WRT1900ACS router from a Cisco Linksys E4200. My internet is through U-verse on an NVG510 modem. Setting up the E4200 with the NVG510 was a complex project, and I expected the same hurdles with the WRT1900ACS. Anticipating that, I replicated the settings from the E4200, including setting the WRT1900ACS Internet Connection Type as Static, etc., etc. That ended up being a mistake. After Linksys tech support had me reset it to DHCP Auto Config and doing a reset, the entire network is working beautifully, including being able to establish connections to devices I had given up on. Major upgrade with unanticipated benefits.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stability issues We use a VPN Connection (separate OpenVPN Server not the included) and the biggest Problem with this Router is the stability. We also use one client as a webradio over LAN, so we can hear when the internet is not working (We have FTTH 1Gbits). Also there is a strange behavior when someone uses Wifi. If you transfer big files over Wifi (thank God most of our client only use LAN) the Wifi completly breaks down. But not only that the LAN Clients also lose connection. My advise to you: only buy this thing if you are not using it in a productive environment and don't need Wifi. A big disappointment for this price. I will test openwrt. Hopefully this is more stable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent router for a large household This router was purchased for a 5 person household containing 15 wireless clients one of which is a high end gaming machine. We have used numerous Linksys routers so we did not use the setup CD but had no issues installing the router. Our household includes 802.11b,g,n and ac devices and all but the gaming PC attached with no issues. A short look through our favorite hardware forum produced the information we needed to set the necessary parameters and now the PC connects at the desired speed. The ability to set that particular PC for media prioritization was one of the main reasons for purchasing this router. We are definitely pleased with this purchase.
