The Linksys EA6900 is a relatively competent draft-11ac router performance as good or better than its much dearer sister product, the Linksys WRT1900AC. It offers cloud access if you don't object to Belkin's current terms of use, and an attractive modern interface with which to configure the unit even if you use it without the Smart Wi-Fi cloud service.

It's been more than 18 months since the first 802.11ac routers hit the market, and the IEEE still hasn't approved the draft standard. If you think Congress moves slowly, you haven't been tracking the pace at which the IEEE has been considering the draft...
