The Linksys LAPAC2600 is a 4x4 dual-band Wireless AC access point. Rated as an AC2600 wireless device (800 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 1733 Mbps at 5 GHz), the new AP is targeted towards the segment of the small and medium business market needing to handle BYOD on a budget. As a MU-MIMO device, the access points are also designed to handle multiple MU-MIMO clients simultaneously.

Built with SMBs in mind, an LAPAC2600AP can centrally manage up to 16 APs through its web admin interface as a single point of control, eliminating the need of WLAN controller. Also, with its Captive Portal feature, businesses can use the access point to set up a branded gateway for guests and customers visiting the SMB’s network.

Other features include PoE+ and beamforming support and wireless bridge and WDS support.

Linksys also announced the availability of its WUSB6100M Max Stream AC600 USB MU-MIMO adapter that was announced at CES 2016. The new USB 2.0 adapter supports maximum link rates up to 150 Mbps at 2.4 GHz and 433 Mbps at 5 GHz. Though optimized for other Max Stream products, the WUSB6100M is also compatible with other brands’ routers.


The Linksys LAPAC2600 Pro AC Dual-band Access Point Featuring MU-MIMO and WUSB6100M AC600 MU-MIMO USB Adapter are available now with MSRP of $499.99 and $59.99 respectively.
