Wireless-AC for Faster Speed and Reliability

This router offers wireless-AC technology, which delivers a faster, stronger Wi-Fi connection ideal for online HD video streaming services.

Wireless-AC makes it possible for you to stream shows on your HDTV while family members download music or other files -- without interruption due to a slow network connection.

Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections
The Linksys AC900 Smart Wi-Fi router features beamforming, an innovative technology that optimises the wireless signal strength between your connected devices and Linksys router. Beamforming enables the router to identify and connect directly with other devices, rather than simply sending out wireless signals in a general direction. The result is 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.
