P. Pike, Amazon

  • Summary: Good router but have had issues with it dropping the signal on the 5GHZ connection. Linksys claims it is because the 5GHZ connection is for devices that are close by. I use an extender to enhance the signal and still it seems to drop for no reason.

Dimsi, Amazon

  • Summary: I returned mine, the 2.4 ghz worked fine for the first day, my connection was 300mbps. after that it would stay between 54-72. Factory reset fixed the issue for a few hours. Played with all settings, upgraded and downgraded firmware, switched devices and drivers with same issues.

Performance not their

  • Summary: I replaced an N300 router with this router to up my speed but my N300 was better. My ROKU locks up more now and I lose signal 30 feet away in my bedroom. I am a fan of Linksys and have had them before without any problems.

Not Reliable

Ron, TigerDirect.com
17 May 2015
  • Summary: Got the AC1750 in March and it started out working very well. Only 4 weeks in and it started to have problems with speed. I tested my modem and I was getting 15 to 20 Mbps at that point. Plug in the Linksys and it would drop to 0.5 Mbps.

Mediocre Management/Features, decent hardware performance

Jason Tamez, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: It is okay, the management interface is not very intuitive. It seems Cisco/Linksys took a complicated route with convoluted features to make this device easier for a non-tech home user to manage. I would give them a C- for this attempt.

A little disappointed

Kent W,, TigerDirect.com
15 March 2015
  • Summary: Well, setup was pretty easy. When it works it is great. BUT, it losses connection often. Have problems connecting with my Android devises. Iphones connect fine, but those are my kids, and I was going to keep my old wireless for them.

Like the guest network feature

James M Bonnici "Jim", Amazon
2 February 2015
  • Summary: Dependable on a whole. 5Ghz band nothing special. Tried to isolate OnePlus phone on a 5Ghz network dedicated but range lacking. Had hoped to go wireless to my streaming BluRay in front room (from bedroom) but still occasional buffering. After initial set up struggles it's solid.

Hard set up

Mark, Staples
22 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Bought this to replace an older one that was unreliable. During set up, it wouldn't recognize the password sent with the unit. Called Cisco customer service and got it working. But found out that the warranty was going to expire at the end of January. Turns out the unit was manufactured in 2013.

  • Summary: Not as much functionality as I expected. It has a very simplistic and easy gui, but not much for customizing options (e.g. cannot set different parental controls for guest network from the main.)
