Linksys today announced at CES 2014 that it is bringing back the heritage of the best-selling router of all time – the Linksys WRT54G but updated and modernized it with the most leading edge available Wireless-AC technology on the market. The new Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Wi-Fi Router is inspired by the original WRT54G iconic blue/black stackable form factor but with a modernized spin as well as more powerful hardware such as a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, four removable antennas (instead of the standard three) and eSata and USB 2.0/3.0 connectivity ports. The Linksys Wireless AC 1900 Dual-Band Router is capable of speeds of up to 1.3Gbps on the 5 GHz band and up to 600 Mpbs on the 2.4 GHz band.
The new WRT1900AC ships with Linksys Smart Wi-Fi set-up and management tools and will be the first Linksys router to include the Network Map feature. The new WRT provides the most robust specifications in its class and will be the world’s first open source compatible router to support a dual core 1.2 Ghz processor, 4 removable and customized antennas, 128MB flash memory and an eSATA port. Linksys has also been working with the OpenWRT community to make an open source firmware downloadable when product is available. The new Linksys WRT1900AC Dual-Band Wireless-AC Router is planned for availability this spring for approximately $299.99.
