The company has announced a pair of dual-band routers -- the AC1800 and AC750 -- that sport 802.11ac muscle, IntelliStream tech to prioritize video and gaming streams, and a MediaPlay app for pushing content to your TV that's powered by Twonky. Both devices also feature Smart Start which allows for quick setup with a mobile device and USB ports for added connections. The main difference? Speed. The AC1800 advertises speeds of 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 1.3Gbps on 5GHz while the entry-level AC750 boats 300Mbps on 2.4GHz and 433Mbps on 5GHz. The AC1800 and AC750 are available now for $179.99 and $89.99 respectively.

In addition to the pair routers, Belkin also announced the AC WiFi Dual-Band USB Adapter.
