Linksys EA6700 review: dual-core high-end ac router

Hardware.Info
23 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Linksys has decided to replace its 802.11n products as fast as possible with 802.11ac models, the new WiFi standard that's supposed to be ratified by the end of this year. The router manufacturer recently came with three new products at the same time, the EA6300, EA6400 and the EA6700. That last one is set to replace the EA6500, and looks pretty impressive on paper. We tested it to find out.

Linksys EA6500 802.11ac router review

APC
13 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Maybe it was because of a vendor advantage with the client station we used for testing also from Linksys but the EA6500 blew through our tests faster than any other router we looked at. At its top speeds it was rivalling Gigabit Ethernet for data rates and that’s something we never really thought might happen. But pure speed isn’t the only thing the Linksys has going for it.

Cisco Linksys EA6500 Smart Wi-Fi Router Review

Legit Reviews
23 November 2012
  • Excerpt: With the holidays fast approaching, many users are looking for gear that will update their current network infrastructure.  Older routers just do not have the throughput to keep up with much of the modern technology that is showing up more and more in the home.  If you are looking to stream high-definition video to multiple screens, or download large files via Bittorrent, then you will definitely be interested in the speeds that 802.11ac provides.
