Wireless speeds continue to increase, case in point, TP-LINK’s AC1900 Router. AC1900 features speeds up to 1.9Gbps, a USB 3.0 port for media sharing, hardware NAT, and easy configuration via TP-LINK’s Tether App.
Breaking down all of AC1900’s features, we’ll notice that its 1.9Gbps throughput is split across dual bands – 1.3Gbps over 5GHz, and 600Mbps over 2.4GHz. TP-LINK claims that shielding between the WAN and LAN ports, plus a hardware NAT allow WAN to LAN speeds (and vice versa) of over 900Mbps. The USB 3.0 port can share media locally or over the internet, for those times you’re at a friend’s house and want to play the latest song you downloaded.
If you frequently have company over, and your wireless password is 20+ characters long like mine, AC1900 could ease your pain. You can easily create a guest network with a simpler password for all of your friends and family to use while they’re at your house. Or if you want to disable wireless altogether, there’s a simple On/Off button on AC1900’s side. Lastly, AC1900 is IPv6 ready.
Your wireless network can get a boost from TP-LINK’s AC1900 in Q2 2014 for $179.99.
