Linksys' CES 2018 announcements include a cheaper Velop and new gaming router
Linksys' RE9000 MU-MIMO Range Extender is a tri-band extender that provides four-stream backhaul for a surprisingly low price.
Linksys' EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router is a less expensive two-stream, tri-band router that still delivers surprisingly good Wi-Fi performance.
Updated - Our roundup of 2x2 802.11ac access points shows top performance doesn't have to cost a lot.
Updated - We retested NETGEAR's Orbi and Linksys' Velop and were pleasantly surprised by one of them.
Linksys' EA9300 Max-Stream AC4000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router tries to spiff up the 3x3 "tri-band" router market with higher link rates, MU-MIMO and a much more powerful CPU.
The contest has ended. The winner of the Linksys WRT3200ACM AC3200 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router is Doug Nagle.
Congratulations, Doug! And thanks to everyone who entered.
Linksys' Velop doesn't move the ball forward on the distributed Wi-Fi system playing field.
Linksys announced two routers, cable modem and MU-MIMO adapter at CES 2017.
