Linksys WRT1900ACS Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router, Open Source ready, eSATA / USB 3.0 Ports
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: first attached the antennas and read the simple basic setup info let stabilize to room temperature before plugging it in to avoid possible condensation. It includes a 4' long FLAT Ethernet cable I connected it to network and let it sit for a few minutes my computer automatically connected to the router when I opened a web page just like supposed to the first thing that happened was the router searched for updates it found a firmware update downloaded and installed and rebooted in just about 2 minutes total time then with their built in setup steps it was super simple changed router name and password for users and changed the password for the router so nobody else has access to it. Then I connected an external drive setup again was super simple. Then went into more settings options and limited from 100 connected to just 20 that should allow for plenty of local phones and such to connect to it. Connected a Samsung 500GB SSD to the USB3 port and transferred files from it to primary computer it took approximately 8 minutes to transfer the files 3885 MP3 files plus the cover art 11.1GB then transferred 6620 various files PDF files office documents exe files and a lot of other file formats to drive in 182 folders 15.9GB total approximately 10 minutes. Time for take laptop for a walk as soon as it stops raining. OK took laptop for it's walk about 100' away from the house before my connection was dropped that is through 2 exterior walls so better than the other routers I have tested most get 50-75' maximum. USB drive has had no further problems.

Cons: bulkier when compared to other routers but not excessively so. after about half an hour my external spin drive disconnected and even after tried several times in setup to refresh it but it never found it again after about 20 tries rebooted router and tried a different drive and after about an hour it still shows up so I assume my spin drive has issues

Pros: I ended up putting the PSU in a different computer than originally planned that has a graphics card but does not require a power tap so it is the same effect

Cons: NA
