Setup and Installation

With so many decades worth of experience in designing consumer-orientated routers it came as no surprise that the WRT1900AC's installation was a straightforward and painless endeavor. Just plug in the router, attach the various cables, and simply type "linksyssmartwifi.com" or "myrouter.local" or just "" into your web browser. Doing any of these this will allow the router to walk you through the quick and painless setup procedure which has been automated as much possible and requires very little user input.

While not as fast some, this procedure will take about two minutes to complete a simple networking installation. This of course assumes you use the default passwords and SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks. If you want to use custom options for either or both networks it will take a bit longer, but even then the installation wizard will walk you through it with very little hassles.

When the wizard is finished you will be left with two fully functioning networks and all that will be left to do is either start using your basic 802.11N and 802.11AC functionality or customizing the more advanced features.

If you do use more advanced features, configuring them should only take a few moments as Linksys has opted for their classic easy to use, easy to navigate and highly intuitive interface. We will get into the various features this router has to offer and the list is rather long and detailed.
