Handles Large Networks with Ease.

Kevin, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a fairly complex set-up and a fairly large home. My Internet speed is 50 mbps down and 5 mbps up. Without going into too much detail, the brains (router) of my network is a Netgear R7000 and a Cisco 3560 switch but I love these EA6500's and I have 2 of them ! I'm using them as wireless AP's ( in bridge mode) with one in the basement (1st floor) and one in the bedroom (3rd floor) with my D-Link router on the 2nd floor.

Great bandwidth at 5GHZ at a value price (refurbished)

S. Gallo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this refurbished router to provide good 5GHz Wi-Fi to stream video to a smart TV at the far end of the house and to get 11AC capability for the future. I have V2 of the router that includes a USB 3.0 port for network attached storage. I have had the EA6500V2 for three days. I have a couple of apps on my android tablet that provide network signal strength and estimated bandwidth.

Nice Router

Jason F., Newegg

  • Summary: Be aware that there are 2 versions of this router with the same name (EA6500). The newer version 2 is much better with a faster processor, twice as much RAM and USB 3.0 support. Also remember that an average internet connection is around 15MB / sec so your speed will not be more than that unless you are transferring files within your own home network.
  • Pros: Fast speed on wireless N band. Gigabit LAN ports. Very easy to configure through a PC web browser. Supports future devices with wireless AC band and 5GHz. Has USB 3.0 and 2.0 jacks for printers and storage devices. Firmware updates automatically overnight when available, so you never need to even think about it.
  • Cons: The G band seemed slower than my old E2000 router, so I ended up daisy chaining my old router to the new one and set it as a AP for the G band, it runs more than twice as fast on G and now I have a triple band network with N and 5ghz AC / N on the EA6500. The range of the 5GHz band is about 1/4th of the 2.4Ghz band, in my basement I get 4 out of 5 bars on 2.4ghz and barely one bar on 5Ghz. My Nook tablet was not able to configure the router through a web browser. I ha...

Great, But useless for me.

Jeffery C., Newegg

  • Summary: Useless product for me, I cannot hold it against Linksys specifically but when paying $150+ for a product you expect features, features that this product did not supply, As a web-host it is incredibly important to have a feature known as "NAT-Loopback" allowing internal access from your outward facing (WAN) IP address, something this product and all other AC routers I have tried do not allow... for "Security" reasons...
  • Pros: This product is fantastic in almost every way, the 5Ghz is especially fantastic giving me 100+mbps down-stream to my mobile devices, and the GUI is intuitive.
  • Cons: No NAT-Loopback feature
