List Of The Best AC1900 Routers
AC1900 Classic – The Asus RT-AC68U
Some Cool RT-AC68U features:
Dual Core processor to multitask all that’s thrown at it.
If you’re opting for the RT-AC68U, there’s a good chance that you want to plug in a USB drive for sharing and LAN streaming.
The 68U has 2 ports (one is USB 3.0).
Data rates of 1.9Gbps, with 1.3Gbps on the AC 5GHz band.
AiRadar & Beamforming

Other 1900 routers
Linksys went retro with the WRT1900AC. It looks like a classic and performs like a boss! Features DD-WRT for those who want to really get their hands dirty with technical grease.
TP-Link Archer C9
The C9 follows hot on the heels from the C8. A change of color scheme (from black to white). Appealing more to those on a budget, the Archer C9 may have all that you’re looking for.
Another Favorite – The Netgear Nighthawk AC 1900 R7000
Nighthawk Cool Features
1GHz Dual Core CPU
Just like the Asus, the Nighthawk has a dual core processor (1GHz). More than capable of handling all your streaming, Quality of Service rules, online gaming and Internet usage.
Hunts down clients when they need it.
Quality of Service
The Nighthawk ships with Quality of Service (QoS) to help make your network more efficient.
Rather than having a free-for-all for all your network traffic, you can tell the R7000 to ensure that certain traffic, and/or for certain users, is given the priority over other types.
This really helps with sensitive traffic, for example, online gaming and streaming video traffic.
Again, just like the Asus, the Nighthawk has two USB ports (again one is a USB 3.0 port). Just plug in a USB drive and away you go!
3 External & Adjustable Antennas
Strategically angle the antennas of the Nighthawk. By angling in different directions, you can cover the areas of your house better.
And There’s More AC1900’s….
Linksys have 2 routers in this list (yes they really do love their 1900AC routers!). The EA6900 came out first.
The DIR-880L is another AC 1900 at the lower end of the price scale. It’s got many of the features of the other routers, including a USB 3.0 port. It should definitely be on your comparison list.
