Linksys EA6900 AC1900 User Manual Overview
Linksys EA6900 AC1900 User Manual – This is the most important change of Linksys of the year. It includes an updated chip set that empowers the organization to promote ‘AC1900’ speeds that ultimately collide with the revolutionary Asus RT-AC68U. Linksys is running on a large scale with the EA6900, including the unprecedented external radio cables for the setup and, surprisingly, being extremely energetic in terms of costs.
Outside the container, the EA6900 has the same look as its predecessors, the EA4500, the EA6500 and the EA6700, but it is observed with care and there are two or three critical changes.
For the Linksys himself, the most critical is that his name is currently in the front of the switch and written in capital letters. This is based on the fact that Belkin has finished buying Cisco’s Linksys and Belkin, perhaps astutely, has not put his logo in place to like it to let the developed Linksys brand make amends. This is a good omen given that Belkin wants to proceed with his own marked switches and allow Linksys to work without obstructions like his own particular unit.
As before, the Linksys logo has a white light that flashes gradually to show the boot, WPS is running or in the midst of firmware revisions, while remaining stable under all circumstances.
The second change worth mentioning is the aforementioned incorporation of three external radio cables. This result in three screw fixings for packaged receiving devices, however, Linksys has still discovered how to package in each of the ports and captures that he would expect (below), including a missing power capture in the United States, and which is mandatory under EU rules.
From the point of view of the plan, the most amazing thing is that the EA6900 still looks impressive regardless of the expansion of the reception cables, a point of view that has consistently given the switches of Asus a more energetic appearance. The manufacturing quality is very strong and on the basis that it does not change to a vertical form factor like most new AC breakers, it can still be fitted with splitter, a producer of fixes for a few. With all that is taken into account, it is an extremely pleasant looking element.
However, the appearance is not where the essential enthusiasm for the EA6900 will reside. The big news is the incorporation of the Broadcom BCM4708A chipset that brings ‘Turbo QAM’, an exclusive innovation that raises the hypothetical 802.11n rates from a more extreme end of 450Mbps to 600Mbps. This when coupled with the more extreme hypothetical end of 1300Mbps of 802.11ac gives us the 1900Mbps figure also promoted by the Asus RT-AC68U when different switches are blocked at 1750Mbps.
The undeniable advantage in this is the potential of Turbo QAM to give the most experienced remote kickset a valuable kick, however, the perfect chipsets are thin on the ground and only give the Asus PCE-AC68 on board. Therefore, the cases of Broadcom chipset to support the execution of remote and remote air conditioning in any case and the chip set get the same leap of seriousness to the EA6900 that received the RT-AC68U. To be specific, an ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor clocked at 800MHz, a solid 256MB of DDR3 RAM and 128MB of blaze storage.
In addition to this, Linksys has coordinated a small PCB in each of its open external reception cables to add some additional reason to the Beamforming in the 802.11ac specification. Linksys has also started manufacturing its own particular firmware stack that gives it more noticeable control over chipsets that different manufacturers allow. This is updated through its Smart WiFi Cloud stage, which allows customers to remotely control and control the configuration of their switches through any PC, tablet or cell phone with an Internet association.
Fundamentally, fixed security clients never require a Smart WiFi registration to use a Linksys switch, but it offers a sublime differentiator and maintains, from the start, the most recognized cloud switching stage from now on. Gradually, however, external Smart WiFi applications are also developed with parental control (Block the Bad Stuff), remote media applications (HipPlay) and device monitoring (Device Monitoring!) Are especially valuable.
Elsewhere, the EA6900 fulfills all privileges. There are four ports Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB (1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0), head for IPv6, WPA / WPA2 and WPS security, guest access and QOS. The receiver cables can also be unscrewed and impersonated with external options.
