We know Synology for their NAS devices, which are some of the best out there. About a year ago Synology ventured into the router market with their RT1900ac, which we reviewed. We liked it so much we gave it our Recommended Award. Well Synology is back with the RT2600ac which is a 4×4 MU-MIMO router giving you wireless speeds of up to 800Mbps and 1733Mbps on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios respectively. The RT2600ac is powered by Synology’s Router Manager (SRM), which works much like their NAS management software. It gives you a very nice interface and one that is most importantly easy to use. Let’s jump in and see what Synology has in store for us with the RT1900ac.
You can get a full list of specifications here.
The RT2600ac comes in a pretty plain box, just like the RT1900ac did. On the front there is a small sticker that has a photo of the router and lists some of the main features.
On the back there is another sticker with a layout showing what the router can do and a list of specifications.
Opening the box up and getting everything out you have the Synology RT2600ac router, power adapter, four antenna, ethernet cable, and a quick installation guide.
