Linksys WRT1900AC: Out of the Box

Linksys_WRT1900AC-6Linksys ships the WRT1900AC router in a fairly large box. This is for a good reason since the WRT1900AC is one of the largest routers that we have ever had a chance to work with. Measuring in at a bit over 7.5-inches in height, 9.7-inches in width, 2-inches thick and around 4.5 pounds, this router is big and solid. If you are looking for something with a small footprint that doesnt take up a lot of desk area, you need to look elsewhere.

Next are the 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz LED indicators that light when the WRT1900AC is receiving data over that band.
