  • Summary: Easy set up, works great. Only thing is Linksys told me that the range on this was 150-200 feet, where my Linksys E2000 that I was replacing was rated at 100-150 foot range. New router is in the same location & range is no different. Other than that I'm happy with it.

Little Challenging to Setup but Worth It

Sarah Hollaway, Amazon

  • Summary: It works but it was a little bit of a hassle. The CD software did not connect the router automatically. I had to go to the website and use the default password to connect the computer. Then I set up wireless network, passwords, and other USB devices.

Perfect except for the FM feature

  • Summary: Great for automobiles without Bluetooth. The mic is perfect. I give it an A+ except there seems to be a lot of crackling when transmitting to the FM radio. Kind of annoying, but a great unit overall.

Nice Router

Jason F., Newegg
9 March 2015
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...

Hoped for better distance in coverage

B. Hale, Amazon
1 February 2015
  • Summary: Replaced a smaller Linksys router with this one. Hoped for better distance in coverage. However, didn't notice much of a difference. Has more features but if you have a two story house, even after moving to the center doesnt cover the entire house.
