"In a collaborative effort with OpenWrt and Marvell, Linksys also announced that the WRT1900ACS will be open source-ready for those that tinker with community-built firmware and will support services such as BitTorrent, VPN and QoS-related modules. "

Given that 1 and a half year after release, the 1900AC still doesn't have a stable open-source driver from Linksys, this statement upsets me a bit.
yeah, "will be open source-ready ...".

Maybe they want someone else to make the driver :p

Well, very likely, yes, but it's impossible without very detailled documentation on the chipsets, that would surely contain important IP, and that is yet to be seen.
 
Huh.. interesting...
Still not interested...
The only thing I've ever bought from belkin that seems to be lasting is a micro USB charging cable for my phone. For that... Belkin is fine, for my home network.. I originally prefered Cisco (Linksys) but now that Belkin is in charge I'll be looking at the nice ASUS routers available these days.

Could be impressive if they dropped the price a bit with those updates. Right now, it is lagging behind. Right now, I prefer a tri-band without MU-MIMO.
