Very Poor Wireless Range

Charlie, Staples
8 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The title pretty much says it all. I have a 1250 square foot house and my neighbors signal is better than what this router has at 30 feet away. Don't waste your money. Get the EA3500, or the EA4500 and you'll be happy.

Absolute Garbage - Do NOT buy this junk

Paul, Staples
18 April 2014
  • Excerpt: My old Linksys WRT54G and WRT54GL routers work perfectly with static IPs on everything on my LAN, but I wanted gigabit ethernet between computers, so I bought a Linksys EA2700 which has a 4 port gigabit switch in it. The first one worked for a year then quit working. After about 7 calls to Linksys tech support they finally agreed to sell me a refurb for a reasonable price so I did that. They also tried over and over to upsell me to a $200 router.

Worst Router I've Ever Used

Ted C., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I'm a computer technician, I setup routers on a regular basis, I've configured hundreds of routers. I've NEVER had such a poor experience with a router as with this unit. I've used $20 routers that provided a better experience.
  • Pros: Powered on.
  • Cons: Cloud based setup. Unable to configure router (stuck on "Waiting..."). Cisco/Linksys firmware flash utility unable to flash router. Old DSL modem ran 192.168.1.1, unable to connect the router until it could be configured for a different IP, which it would never let me. Wasted an hour trying to get this unit to behave.

Piece of junk! DO NOT BUY EVER! GO WITH NETGEAR

baystallker, Ebay
3 March 2014
  • Summary: This was sold as used but working properly. It had to be reset or would lock up approx. every hour or so. Stick with netgear. The wifi performance was never above 22Mbps and that is with a 802.11 N laptop that is dual band. And an AC card that retros to dual N. All the Linksys gear I tried in the last week was subpar. E1200, EA2700, EA6400. This EA2700 touted gigabit LAN but would/could only achieve 26Mbps of throughput on a gigabit model with 10' of Cat6 E.

  • Summary: I noticed that all the people who rated this router high are new owners, less than a couple of months. I had the workhorse WRT54GL Wireless-G router for several years but it died and Linksys recommended upgrading to handle the load. They sold me the EA2700 about 18 months ago. Before the year was up, it started dropping me, I called and spent many hours and days trying fixes, I finally told them I thought they were waiting for my year to be up so it wouldn't be covered...
