New Router WRT1200AC

IMG_20150705_124546591New day, new router!

This time I got a Linksys WRT1200AC, this is the little brother to the WRT1900AC. Modeled after the old WRT54GL which I’d say was the most popular router a few years ago due to its price point and its functionality. I myself still own 3, all of which have DDWRT firmware on it which I still pop out on occasion for various projects.

The upgrade on this one is that it provides 4 x 1gb ethernet ports and built in wireless AC across 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands. My current home network mainly runs off 2.4ghz as there isn’t too much interference in my area but having 5ghz will help in the future.

Now the router itself is gigantic compared to what I’m use to. Typical these days but still off putting for me. Setup was easy, plug and play really. The interface can be seen below but in a matter of 10 minutes I got my fairly complex network up and running. Overall I’m happy with it so far.
