Linksys AC1900 Smart Gigabit Wi-Fi Router: Smart Software
The “smart” part of this Smart Wi-Fi router is the web-based configuration and management tools, originally developed by former Linksys owner Cisco (CSCO).
Wireless routers can be arcane, but Linksys makes it easy to set up and the smart Wi-Fi tools provided on the website make anything from parental controls to network traffic optimization a breeze. (That way, you can give NFLX streaming priority over web surfing, for example.)
The router is also app-controllable, and that web portal means you can check in and make changes remotely. Linksys is also partnering with third party developers to expand the capabilities of Smart Wi-Fi through apps.
The ease of use, depth of network management and functionality expansion made possible with the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Tools are one area where this Gigabit Wi-Fi router really shines.
