Admittedly, I was probably one of the most excited people on this planet when Linksys brought back the WRT. It has been nearly two years since that launch, and while the performance of that initial solution could have been much better, I used that router in my home network for quite a long time.
Since that launch, Linksys has come back and revamped that solution to offer a more competitive edge in the AC1900 market. With the initial solution housing a 1.2GHz dual-core Marvell Armada SoC, 256MB of memory and 128MB of flash, this new unit, being a more powerful unit takes many of its internals from the WRT1200AC including its Armada 38x SoC, a dual-core solution operating at 1.6GHz. Memory has been increased to 512MB while flash stays the same at 128MB. Connectivity still has this solution offering four gigabit Ethernet ports along with a single gigabit WAN adding to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands capable of 600 Mbps and 1300 Mbps, respectively.
Pricing, Availability, and Specifications
The specs echo what I have mentioned above. It packs in four antennas along with USB 3.0 and eSATA connectivity. As mentioned this is a dual-core ARM platform with 512MB of memory and 128MB of flash and of course with all of this power this solution has been designed for OpenWRT.
MSRP of the Linksys WRT1900ACS Wireless Router comes in at $229.99 with a two-year warranty.
