Knowing It’s CES means there will be a lot unveiling of latest technologies demanding your money. From Belkin we’re having to deal with yet another unveiling of its Linksys WiFi router, this one is highly recommended for people who particularly wish to do away with dead spots in coverage.
Belkin is bucking a design trend with its new Wi-Fi mesh router, the Linksys Max Stream AC2200. Most companies do everything they can to make Wi-Fi mesh routers look, well, like anything other than a router.
They design their enclosures to resemble hockey pucks, or flower vases, or other innocuous objects. And they invariably hide the router’s antennas inside their enclosure, a practice one would assume must reduce the router’s range.
Linksys WiFi router new Max Stream AC2200 is a typical (if quick) tri-band router with 2.2Gbps of combined bandwidth, but includes built-in mesh networking support.
The Linksys Max Stream AC2200 is a tri-band 802.11ac router, operating one wireless network on the 2.4GHz frequency band capable of supporting a data rate up to 400Mbps, and two independent networks on the 5GHz band capable of support a data rate of up to 867Mbps each. As you would expect,
Linksys hasn’t said when the Max Stream AC2200 ships. However, it’ll cost you a not-too-unreasonable $200 when it goes on sale through Linksys, Amazon and Best Buy. While that’s more expensive compare the price of other Wi-Fi routers. Google WiFi cost $129, you’re also getting a router that makes more sense on its own when you get the Linksys Wi-Fi router.
