MAX-STREAM AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router

Product page • Support page

Wi-Fi Certified (alt.) (as of 01/03/2017)

Wi-Fi certificate claims 4SS for 802.11ac and 3SS for 802.11n.

Despite Linksys claims of only three-stream speeds, version 2.0 appears to be wired

up for four tx/rx chains with three external antennas and one internal antenna.

It may actually support four spatial streams and higher-than-advertised speeds.

RF Report NII at the FCC shows 4 transmit and 4 receive chains.

FCC documents also cover the AC1750 Linksys EA7400 v2 which supposedly

disables 256-QAM in 802.11ac to differentiate it for marketing purposes
although 256-QAM is likely disabled for 802.11n, not 802.11ac.
