Updated - It's not quite "Performance Perfected". But Linksys' WRT1900AC AC1900 Dual Band Wireless Router should get the company back in the game for high-end AC routers.

Updated - TP-LINK's TL-WPA4220KIT is a wireless extender with a powerline twist.
TRENDnet's TEW-818DRU AC1900 class router doesn't set any new performance highs.
Updated - We take a look at six inexpensive travel routers and come up with two recommendations.
D-Link's DIR-510L Wi Fi AC750 Portable Router and Charger provides about twice the throughput of the average travel router, but at around four times the cost.
NETGEAR's EX6200 AC1200 WiFi Range Extender puts 802.11ac throughput to work to expand your wireless network's reach.
The strongest feature of TP-LINK's TL-WA890EA N600 Universal Dual Band WiFi Entertainment Adapter is its four-port 10/100 switch.
Cisco's WAP561 is a small business access point that can operate standalone or in controller-less clusters.
ZyXEL's NBG6716 top-of-line AC1750 router is another QCA-based router with disappointing performance.
In our matchup of two N600 class wireless bridges, neither comes out a clear winner.
NETGEAR's WNCE4004 N900 Video and Gaming Adapter has its good points. But 5 GHz performance isn't among them.
Linksys' WUMC710 Wireless-AC Universal Media Connector is an inexpensive alternative to buying a second AC router as a bridge. But you'll also get lower performance.
We went back and retested the wireless performance of the three first-to-market AC1900 routers with newer firmware and found slight improvements that have changed the rankings.
Our test of five dual-band wireless extenders came up with a clear winner.
We found our first attempt at testing wireless extenders wasn't up to par. So we redesigned the test process and retested them all.
The second time isn't the charm for TRENDnet's second stab at its top-of-line TEW-812DRU AC1750 class router.
The Linksys E900 Wireless-N300 Router provides solid 100 Mbps routing and decent wireless performance for around $30.
Does Medialink's MWN-WAPR300N really deserve to be Amazon's best-selling router?
The real winner of our test of five AC1200 class USB adapters isn't necessarily the one that ranked the highest.
