Although it lacks Wi-Fi 6, the rock space AC2100 wireless router features a dual-core processor, a maximum speed of 2033 Mbps, and 1300 square feet coverage thanks to 4×4 MU-MIMO and Beamforming+. Only available in the US, this product is now on sale with a 40 percent discount that takes the price below US$40.
Rock space AC2100 has been around for a while, so it might lack some technologies that make a router future-proof these days, such as Wi-Fi 6 and a potent quad-core processor. However, this dual-band Gigabit wireless router is capable of providing plenty of features to the users who want decent coverage and fast wireless speeds without planning to host any e-sports event in their house. IPv6 support and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK wireless security are also present in the list of specs and features.
In terms of specs and features, the Rock space AC2100 comes with a single WAN port, four Gigabit LAN ports, and a single USB 2.0 port. This wireless router sports four MU-MIMO antennas, Beamforming+ technology, and it can cover a maximum area of 1300 square feet. This piece of hardware can be controlled via the RS WiFi app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices.
The aforementioned mobile app provides the user with the ability to manage multiple Rock space routers both locally and remotely. Sadly, the more adventurous users will not be able to flash the AC2100 with DD-WRT or OpenWRT yet. For now, this router is not supported by these two popular open-source firmware efforts.
