I have a Cisco RV220W Wi-Fi router and I get excellent performance from it with my ThinkPad X230 with "N" Intel wireless NIC.

Upper end Netgear are very good as well.

Okay.  What's the difference between the WRT 1900AC and the Cisco RV220W ?

The Cisco RV220W is a small business router + firewall.

The 1900AC is a beast, its open source ready and built to perform it has everything inside of it be a high performance router. the antennas are special its has a dual core processor and its even open source.  ( I know I said that twice ;) )

Both are dual band but the 1900AC has AC internet It doesnt say how much N speed for the RV but the AC has 600N and 1900AC so you get a new laptop internet will FAST, AC for the close devices and N for the ones further.
