  • Summary: I've had this router for quite a while, and after Linksys changed the set up to Linksys smart wifi, I've had constant issues, where I have to reboot the router, Its also much harder with the Linksys smart wifi page to add a wireless device. Good Luck if you buy it, I used to think Linksys had the best products, but after what I paid for it, and it not even being able to wirelessly hookup with another Linksys product, and constant dropping issues I don't think I would buy...

  • Summary: I have had this router for a month now and I am impressed by how it performed under stress. I copied multiple files across my network devices while streaming video to my play station and it worked fine. The only problem with router (and probably that's a deal breaker for most of you) is that the 5Ghz range is terrible.
  • Pros: Good throughput, easy installation and admin
  • Cons: range

Good thing to know before purchasing

JAR, Staples

  • Excerpt: Replaced a previous 12 yr old linksys router with a range booster with this model and lost range. It is dependable and easy to setup but because of the range loss probably have to purchase a range extender. Expected more or at least equal performance and did not seem to gain anything.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Normal Range
