By - Source: Buffalo Press Release | B 4 comments

Here's an upcoming router from Buffalo that offers 1300 Mbps speeds.

Looking to upgrade your wireless network to the latest Wireless AC speeds? Look no further than Buffalo Americas' AirStation Extreme AC 1900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router, slated to arrive in Q2 2014. This router appears to be Buffalo's fastest to date, providing theoretical speeds of up to 1300 Mbps.

The company's CES 2014 announcement arrives by way of a list of features, reporting that this router will have a dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz to help the device deal with the high-speed traffic. The router will also be equipped with three wireless transmitters and HighPower Technology for extreme performance and range.

The company reveals that the router is capable of Wireless AC speeds of up to 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz channel, and Wireless AC speeds of up to 600 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz spectrum. The router also supports 5 GHz Beamforming to any Wireless AC or Wireless N device for boosting performance and range for an even more reliable, high speed wireless connection.

"Priority Control QoS provides a top entertainment experience by automatically prioritizing multimedia and gaming traffic, such as Netflix, YouTube and Xbox LIVE, for uninterrupted streaming and lag-free gaming," reads the press release.

The router also features cloud-based Norton web filtering and parental controls by Symantec, as well as a Wi-Fi Settings Transfer function that allows users upgrading from an older WPS router to keep their existing Wi-Fi profile and settings. Users can also share their printer on the network thanks to an included USB port.

Buffalo's AirStation Extreme AC 1900 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router (WXR-1900DHP) will be available in Q2 at an estimated MSRP of $199.99. Expect additional details regarding the hardware specs as we get closer to the launch window.

    I wish they finslly made WI-FI something that dosent stop transmiting randomly just becouse there is a thin wall between my PC and router.
    Who cares about a Buffalo router when your provider uses some crap from china that sucks anyway.

    All I can say is... hallelujah !!! DelightfulDucklings is a messianic figure. When did common sense come back into fashion ? Did I miss the announcement ?He is right on with his comment. My average download speed from most sites is around 1 MB/s on a good day...even though my measured Broadband speed (checked regularly) is around 50 Mb/s..whats the point ?

    All of my media is stored on my NAS device and my personal computer is attached to my network wirelessly. Every time I want to pull a movie from there to a USB drive or upload from USB to the NAS it would be nice to het more than 9MB/sec. The NAS sis rated at about 100mb/ sec and my USB 3.0 drive is close to that as well, my wireless n network is clearly the bottleneck. I would love to be able to get 30 MB/s in those situations.Point is that moving data from the internet to your computer is not the only task a router could be asked to do.
