Since moving to 802.11ac, Linksys has gone with the Smart Wi-Fi platform with most of their product releases. With that, this platform has become quite solid with little to no bugs. On the main menu, you can see a quick look at the router to the right.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
