Welcome to throwback Thursday on a Wednesday.

There once was a time where just about every Wi-Fi router in homes across the country were little blue boxes that said Linksys. Times have certainly changed and there are plenty of companies out there that make top-notch routers, but Linksys continues to be one of the best names in the business. After all these years and all the routers the company has released, the Linksys AC1900 Dual Band Open Source WiFi Wireless Router is probably its best all-around router ever. It’s fast, it offers great range, and with Amazon’s current sale it’s available at a sold price point.
