Was having problems with my old router not reaching my new Smart T.V. for streaming on-line content like Netflix and Amazon. Even had a router extender in the family room but still was patchy range at best. Researched for a while and found the latest and fastest "Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router by Linksys". According to the reviews this is the fasted router on the market today. I had some staples rewards and wanted to use them before they expired, so I went on-line and found the router I was looking for and was able to purchase. It arrived in the expected time frame and I decided to set it up. Set-up was preconfigured and rather easy so I had the new network up and running and within a few hours all of my devices set up on one or the other of it's network bands. I unhooked by extender and am happy to say I getting a strong and consistent signal now in the farthest corner of the house from the router and running full bore with my internet service. I recommend this router if you need speed and farther, consistent signal.

I purchased this router from Staples. com in August 2014. Before the 14 day return period expired, I returned the unit to Staples in Glen Ellyn, IL for another one. The return was very easy (yes, the Staples slogan worked) and the staff in the store were great. Thought maybe it was just a defective unit. Well, it apparently is more than that. Unfortunately, I should have returned the second unit to Staples and got my cash back--but I thought the issues would go away. I replaced an aging Linksys router that worked fine, but I thought I would get the latest technology--801.ac and life would be better. Well, when it works, it does work well, but I have to reboot the router at least once a day to achieve the results I paid for. Without rebooting, the speed falls off dramatically, and sometimes I lose the ability to print on my home network. Normally, they work fine--and they always worked fine with my prior 6 year old Linksys router! So if you are willing to reboot the router daily--go for it. I have the latest firmware version and everything else, so it has to be the router. However, what is most troubling is I have submitted a review, consistent with this one, on the Linksys website. In fact, I submitted two of them, and neither review has been published. In short, it appears that Linksys is "screening" any reviews that are negative of its products. I used no bad language or the like so there is no reason not the publish at least one of the reviews. I used to really respect Linksys, but since they were purchased by Belkin from Cisco, things appear they have gone down hill. Sometimes when this router starts acting up, I install my old one--and life is good again. Based on reading users seeking help from the Linksys support team, I don't think I will waste my time calling them. So, I appear to own a $200+ router that will continue to need certain "babysitting" by me. How unfortunate!

Good Wi-Fi range, speed, build quality

By nycsun

Comments about Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router:

Retro sign, remind me of old linksys wrt 54g more than 10 years ago. 2.4 ghz range and speed on a par with netgear R7000 and R8000. 5 ghz range and speed it is better than netgear R7000 amd R8000 in my case, I can not alway get a full bar with netgear R7000 and R8000 just 3-4 feet away next room. with netgear r7000 and r8000 only get 3 bar or 2 bar with 5ghz. with linksys wrt1900ac get a full bar all the time. the front lights are dim, not bright as netgear r7000 and r8000.I used netgear r7000 for 4 moths, it is good router, but it has usb 3.0 port at front and has a huge power adapter, the lights at front are ignoring. For netgear r8000, it is also good router, but bulid quality is not good as linksys wrt1900ac. Netgear r8000 costs $299.99, you only get secound 5ghz band, it is not worth money. It also has many lights in middle of the router. I got linksys wrt 1900ac from staples.com when it was on sale for $174.99. it is good price compare another online and local retailers.

Good product.. bad support

By Russ

Comments about Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router:

I had two simple questions that support didn't seem to answer. Just glad I bought this at Staples because the easy tech had more answers then the rep from Linksys.
I wanted to know why I could not send Wireless N with the WEP protection and the rep sent me back saying I had a bad unit. (It can just not be done with the present firmware.) The kept telling me to use WPA and my older equipment in my network does not support that. I need WEP until I upgrade some other equipment.
Then they could not tell me if the USB ports were powered or not. (Simple, can I use a USB only hard drive or do I need one that also plugs into a power outlet.
Great product as even with Wireless G sends a better signal then my old router in wireless N.
If only the support team knew a little bit about their own product..... otherwise a great router that I would buy again even with no support.

Comments about Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Gigabit Wi-Fi Router:

After going back and forth with the TWC supplied router/modem combo, I added this Linksys wifi. Now, I have better reception and can actually use audio and video on Skype and FaceTime. Yes, it's overpriced, but serves its purpose.
