Linksys WRT1900AC review: Fast, easy to set up, and every feature you can imagine

Linksys WRT1900ac
The original blue-and-black Linksys WRT54G wireless router, released way back in 2002, holds an odd place in my heart. On the one hand, it was cheap and performed reasonably well, but on the other it also crashed regularly and was a pain in the ass to set up. Fortunately, 11 years on, things have changed a bit. The WRT1900AC, the spiritual successor to the WRT54G, is one of the fastest routers on the market, easy to configure, stable, fun to use, and attractive. The only real downside that I could find is that the WRT1900AC is definitely not cheap and cheerful like the WRT54G: Priced at $280, the WRT1900AC is a serious piece of high-spec hardware — with perhaps just a small price premium thanks to its prestigious forebear.
