My wife wants to use her laptop downstairs while watching TV, so I am looking at getting a wireless router.

I am looking at some N routers, but I see that some of the new 802.11ac routers are out now, and so I started looking at them.

I found that the AC certification won’t be issued till early next year even though a few are out now.

Are the 802.11ac routers out now “Wi-Fi Certified”?

I don’t think they are since the certification is still not out yet.

From what I understand, these early ‘AC’ routers could have problems with products made after the final certification has been issued next year:

How true is this?
