Newegg offers the Linksys Smart WiFi Dual-Band Wireless-AC Router, model no. WRT1900AC, bundled with the refurbished Roku 1 1080p Wireless Streaming Media Player, model no. 2710R for $219.99 with free shipping. That's $48 under the lowest total price we could find for the router and a new Roku 1 sold separately elsewhere. (For further comparison, we saw the router for $200 two weeks ago and the refurbised Roku for $30 last month.) This router features Beamforming technology, which enables it to strengthen the wireless signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction. It's backwards compatible with 802.11ac networks and also features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, speeds of up to 1.3Gbps, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, Gigabit WAN port, USB 3.0 port, and LED status indicators. The Roku 1 can stream 1080p video and works with Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Pandora, Flickr, and other media apps.
