The WRT1200AC uses the same Smart Wi-Fi management solution as the 1900AC solution. As such, you can create and account to manage your router on the go, or optionally stay offline and manage router the traditional way.

The landing menu gives you a glimpse of everything going on with the router. At the top, we have Internet connectivity, while moving down, we have wireless SSIDs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

Network map is one of the best features of current router platforms, as you can see the Linksys software allows you to see all devices or sort them by band or wired interface.

External storage is another feature that is now built into most routers. Linksys allows you to enable quite a few services including DLNA server, FTP and SMB folder shares.
