LAS VEGAS--TP-Link today showed off its first 802.11ac router at CES 2013, the AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router (model TL-WDR7500).
The router supports a combined wireless speed of 1,750Mbps -- 1,300Mbps on the 5GHz band and 450Mbps on the 2.4GHz band. On top of that it also offers Gigabit Ethernet and two USB ports for storage and printer-sharing features.
Like other 802.11ac routers, the TL-WDR7500 supports all existing Wi-Fi clients on the market, but you'll need to use 802.11ac clients with it to achieve the higher speeds.
The new router comes in white and is designed to work in the vertical position. It supports IPv6, offers an advanced Parental Control feature, and can stream digital content to connected media players and game consoles.
The AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router should be available during the second quarter of 2013.
