Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections

The Linksys AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi router features beamforming, an innovative technology that optimizes the wireless signal strength between your connected devices and router. Beamforming enables the router to identify and connect directly with other devices rather than simply sending out wireless signals in a general direction.

This results in faster network speeds, better wireless range, and reduced interference from other devices. It also helps extend the battery life of connected devices and reduce their power consumption because data is transferred more quickly.

USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ports Deliver Fast Transfer Speeds

The AC1900 includes USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports, letting you easily share devices like external hard drives and printers across your network. It also has four gigabit ports to connect wired devices at speeds up to 10x faster than Ethernet.

Upgrade Your Devices to Enjoy the Full Benefits of Wireless-AC

Using Linksys’s family of wireless-AC peripherals you can take full advantage of the improved speed and stability of wireless-AC. The Linksys Universal Media Connector (WUMC710) lets you connect wired devices such as game consoles and smart TVs to your Wi-Fi network and stream HD or even 3D HD video content seamlessly.

The connector operates on the 5 GHz band, resulting in less interference and a clearer signal. Additionally, the Linksys Dual Band AC1200 Wireless 3.0 Adapter (WUSB6300) enables you to upgrade your laptop or desktop computer to fully benefit from the faster speeds of wireless-AC technology to stream high-definition video or enjoy high-speed gaming.

10 reviews for Linksys AC1900 Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit & USB 3.0 Ports, Smart Wi-Fi App Enabled to Control Your Network from Anywhere (EA6900)

  1. Vickie R.

    If you are replacing an existing router you will of course need your internet providers ID/password which is easy to obtain, just call them. After that it’s pretty much plug and play. The Gigabit ports are a real plus if you have a wired home network because they are FAST and with 4 ports you probably don’t need a switch. (2) USB 3.0 ports are nice if you want to turn the router into a file server, just plug a portable USB hard drive into any of these (2) ports. Some tips when you set it up: (1) Turn off the “Guest” access. Just an open door you probably won’t need. (2) You will have 2 wireless access points available for your phones etc. To get the most physical range, don’t use the 5GHz. access point, use the other one, it has better coverage. Once you are done setting it up and it’s working, turn off the remote access feature so no one can get back into your network.In all, so far a great router!

  2. David Pearce

    I could not have been more pleased with my decision. The setup instructions are literally 4 steps, two of which are simply plug it in the wall, and connect your modem. After that it’s just connecting to a actual domain name (no need for using the IP address unless that’s your thing), and following the steps to configure the SSID and password.The UI is incredibly simple compared to my old linksys router, and I even suggested my wife install the app on her iPhone so she could check it out. Of course I got the “Why?” response… and I suppose she has no need, but if she did need to, it would be just as simple as reading the 4 step instructions.With gigabit (which I was told is restricted to around 850mb due to the current DOCSIS 3.0 modem) I was able to achieve 840mb while connected directly to the router. My iPhone 6 is hovering about 40mb on wifi, and my computer connecting over wireless is sitting at 105mb on the opposite end of the house. Distance has improved over my previous router as we can now connect to wifi on the backporch whereas it was spotty at best with our previous router. I’m sure wireless speeds could be improved, but I only use it for my phone, and the wife is happy with what she’s getting now.

    This router is working great in my two-story 1600 sq ft home. This was a major upgrade for me, and I am really enjoying having all those 5 Ghz channels now. My immediate neighborhood is packed with endpoints in the 2.4 Ghz range and I was having a horrible time keeping a locked signal on my Chromecast and on my wifi-using cell phone.I had a bit of trouble getting the router set up, but I think I was just not waiting long enough for it to settle in once I plugged it in. I have to say that Linksys’s customer support is the best support I have ever received from any company ever. First, it’s 24×7. Second, the rep was incredibly patient and knowledgeable. My problem sort of resolved itself while we were on the phone and the rep could not have been kinder about me wasting her time. Lastly, they actually CALLED ME BACK the next day to make sure everything was still working. I was blown away.

  4. TechNut

    I bought this unit to replace my old FIOS Actiontec router. I upgraded to 200mbps FIOS and the old router could not handle that speed. Installation was very easy. I chose not to use the phone app because I didn’t have a use for it. I logged straight into the router’s firmware to change passwords and turn off the guest feature. The router is pumping out the full 200 mbps on both bands with very strong coverage throughout my 2600 square ft house. The gigabit lan ports are lightning fast…my desktop computer is hard-wired and getting more that the advertised speeds. The router also handles my internet phones, 3 Roku’s, assorted tablets, laptops and cell phones. No dropped connections. If your house is very large, you could justify a WIFI 6 system with mesh satellites. But at this price point and use case, this router is an attractive value.

  5. Karen McLaughlin

    Very easy setup. This is my 3rd linksys router and I am loyal to their brand because of the ease of setup and quality. I also appreciate the smartphone app and the ability to see my devices there as well as prioritize which is getting the signal. I have approximately 8 devices connected and speed in all of them is great. I pay for 50mbps of speed from my provider. Speed test shows 55mbps in main living area (router is not located there) and 50 in room farthest from router. Very very pleased.

  6. TC

    I have three Apple AirPort Extreme routers setup up in my house for better coverage for my home with three Nest Outdoor Cam. One of the AirPort Extreme was not working recently. After some research, I decided to buy the Linksys ac1900 router for replacement. First I tried to setup the ac1900 in bridge mode but could find any instruction. Therefore I configure this Linksys as main router anD change my main Apple airpirtextreme to bridge mode.The only drawback is for the Linksys router’s net work naming can not have space and Apple’s product allows the space in the network naming. I have to redo the three Nest cam’s set up over again. Other than this little issue. Everything went smoothly. The Linksys router’s signal is stronger than the Airport Extreme.The setup is very easy.

  7. Bob

    My old router started dying and would drop the signal randomly. I would have to reset the router and sometimes the network adapter on my notebook. After some troubleshooting decided my router was 8 years old running 24/7 and probably was wearing out. I picked this one up installed it and I’ve been up and running for at least a month without a single drop. The user interface is simple and intuitive. My old router was an “n” router and this one is significantly faster. Only one hiccup – I don’t like the guest Wi-Fi network ID that installs by default. I had to disable that and it was a little stubborn. I turned it off but it was still there. Turn it back on turn it back off still there. Figured out it wanted to be powered off and back on then no more guest Network ID.

    The short:Pros:- MEGA fast (connecting, streaming, transferring)- USB ports (with 1 supporting faster USB 3.0)- Powerful signal (no longer in competition with apartment complex neighbors–consistently strongest signal)- Sleek interface (easy setup, easy maintenance and setting changes)- Very convenient (Phone app allows remote support, meaning you can manage your router from anywhere)- Lots of functionality (client management, parental controls, media prioritization, NAS management)- Competitively priced- Aesthetically pleasing, much softer lighting than typical routers (esp. Linksys)Cons:- Mounting holes are in an odd spot (hangs router such that cables protrude to the left)- Power cable is a little shortFor reference I am on Charter (cable broadband like Comcast or Time Warner) with advertised 60 Mb/s. I live in a 2-level apartment with lots of 2.4 GHz noise from surrounding networks. We have the following wireless devices: 2 laptops, 2 desktops, 2 smartphones, Chromecast, and a game console. I used to also use a wireless range extender (TP-Link N300), however now I don’t need it!The long:What a great router! I upgraded from an old Cisco N300 router that had done the job fine, but was beginning to need periodic resets in order to be functional. This combined with a shotty modem provided by my cable internet company and a range extender on another floor made for a frustrating dissatisfactory internet experience about 50% of the time. I upgraded to a new modem (Archer SURFBoard), and noticed the connection on wired devices was faster and more consistent, however my wireless signal was still spotty and intermittent especially with the noisy surrounding networks. I decided it was time to upgrade.I am definitely a techie so I did a lot of research before on different routers, and heard rave reviews from a relative and a coworker on the management app, signal strength, and overall router performance. The setup was super simple, just plug and play if you just want a router that works! The quick-start guide lists the pre-set strong password and unique SSID. I, however, had to make sure I knew every setting and feature well, and was very impressed with the settings for Media Prioritization (very useful for streaming) and External Storage (NAS, FTP server and user permissions!). I also set the wireless channel to 9 after bringing up a WiFi analyzing app on my phone and seeing that 1-6 or so were jam packed.The difference was, well, underwhelming! Before I was consistently annoyed, and now I hardly even notice it’s there! The external storage is super useful if you haven’t used that before. Me and my wife can transfer files between computers much faster now–our own personal cloud! I no longer use a range extender and I never lose connection.Overall, very pleased. Job well done, Linksys.P.S. My SSIDs: TellMyWiFiLoveHer and BillWiTheScienceFi

    I recently upgraded my router to the Linksys AC1900. I’ve been very happy with it. Had it about 2 months now.Reasons for upgrading:1. I have a lot more devices connected simultaneously than I used to, and my old router wasn’t cutting it. Devices were getting dropped, and I wasn’t getting good speeds when multiple devices were being used at the same time.2. I wanted improved range.My experience:1. Never had a device get dropped since I switched.2. WAY better range. Garage TV connects with a good signal, fairly far away.3. Tough to say as I never paid too much attention, but I suspect I’m getting better download speeds.4. The Linksys app is wonderful. Definitely recommend setting it up. You can monitor your network and who is on it using the app.5. Device prioritization is a thing, but doesn’t seem to make any difference. I disabled it.6. The AC1900 router offers the capability of a guest network. After reading into it, I disabled that feature as there’s well-documented security issues with the guest network. If a guest network is something you really want, this is probably not the way to go.

    No issues, great coverage, decent options for a consumer level device. I use the MAC filtering system for allowing devices so there is no encryption on the Wi-Fi and love it. The app for android provided by Linksys works okay, but it would be nice if you could access it via a mobile browser too, but it works fine, and is easy to use. Many routers have oddball issues with my providers Charter cable modem DHCP but this one handles it perfectly, no complaints. Many units don’t come with mounting screw holes anymore, thank you for including them in this one.
