expired Linksys XAC1900 Dual-Band Wireless Modem/Router $84 (Ususally $299) @ Mighty Ape

110

Found this and seems like a good deal.

Linksys XAC1900 apparently consists of a Linksys EA6900 router and seperate physical modem for DSL.
Don't think it has VLAN tagging so may not support VDSL/Fibre from all providers.
Wifi performance is supposedly close to the ASUS RT-AC68U/ NETGEAR R7000 for a fraction of the price.

Linksys EA6900 is compatible with ddwrt and the likes and I assume this router is too being practically the same.

Also on sale Linksys XAC1900 Dual-Band Wireless Modem/Router for $60

    Fibre compatible?

    Better than the Vodafone homehub ultra thingy?

      Don't think it has vlan tagging so may not work will all fibre providers by default.
      But if you flash DD-WRT it should work.
      Going to buy one and try it out.

        Hi Biggie000,

        Please can you post back here and let us know how it goes flashing DD-WRT, then connecting to your fibre provider.

        Would also be good to note who your fibre provider is - I am not sure if DD-WRT would be configurable for any provider or not?

        Thanks for doing this!

        Alan.

          Sure will do.
          Do not have my own connection to test it with(Landlord provides internet from upstairs), mainly buying this as a gigabit switch + AC1900 Access point.

    Ddwrt doesn't support any router with adsl/vdsl functionalities as far as I am aware because the modem source codes are closed.

    •  

      Yeah DD-WRT doesn't support any device with modem capabilities.

      •  

        It does, you just lose the modem functionality.

        •  

          So, does that mean that if I have an old ADSL modem / router, I can flash it with DD-WRT, and it will become a router only, but with better control / functionality (subject to the physical specs)?

          Thanks,

          Alan.

          @Alan6984: No, If i remember correctly, there is a list of devices it supports. Don't think you can just flash it on anything.

    Alternative is to plug this in as a separate router, rather than the modem all in one.
