The SURFboard SBR-AC1900P Wi-Fi Router provides four Ethernet connections for use as the hub of your home/office Local Area Network (LAN). It also provides 802.11a/b/g/n/ac 2.4/5 Ghz dual-band concurrent wireless connectivity for enhanced mobility and versatility.

The SBR-AC1900P uses the power cable connected to the Wi-Fi Router to connect to the power lines that already exist in your home. RipCurrent is based on Power Line Communication (PLC), which is an ITU Specification managed by the HomeGrid Forum.

This technology allows the SBR-AC1900P to distribute all data to each of the AC power outlets in the home. With a corresponding Extender, the Wi-Fi or wired network can be extended to any room, including basements, garages, or far reaching bedrooms.

The router supports up to 15 connected power line extenders.

A USB 3.0 port and a USB 2.0 port allow for data and media storage or transfer and print sharing.
