Linksys Launches New Tri-Band Router And First Gateway
Routers in the home or office aren’t that easy to get the hang of as they once were. Wifi networks have become congested with dozens of laptops, phones, tablets, and smart home devices. The generic router and modem you get from Comcast or Spectrum aren’t capable or fast enough to handle all those extra devices. That’s one o the major reseasons why mesh routers like Google Wifi have become a more common staple in household networking. Linksys isn’t sitting back though. They’ve released the EA9300, a tri-band MU-MIMO router to meet your needs and they’ve also released their first ever cable modem.
The routers and modems given by internet providers will only provide the bare minium. They’re not designed to handle video games or video streaming. They’re meant for the customers who check email and sometimes deciede to watch a YouTube video. If you playing video games or do anything straining on the internet you’d want to upgrade your system to something a little more advance.
Linksys router and modem will offer speed and stabilitiy
The Linksys AC1900 is a dual-band router/modem for cable is the company’s first gateway. The device hits two birds with one stone. You’ll get a modem and router combo that you’ll often get issued from Internet providers. It’s compatible with all major cable providers. The router will provide speeds up to 1.9 Gbps, in an ideal environment. There is one USB 2.0 port in the slim body and four Gigabit ports.
If you’re looking for something more robust you’ll want the new EA9300 router. A maximum of 4 Gbps downlink is achieved by its MU-MIMO capabilities. A feature called SmartConnect lets the router switch between the 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz bands, but it all depends on the device connecting to it. This will allow you to connect smart home devices and consoles on the same network.
It’ll cost you $299 to get the Linksys EA9300 AC4000 router while the CG7500 AC1900 cable router/modem will only cost you $199. You can buy the Tri-Band Router at Best Buy, Amazon, Target while the Modem Router is avalaible for pre-order.
