Personal Experience tells me to move away from Linksys (YMMV)

Joshua A., Newegg
21 April 2014
  • Summary: Having now had a higher end EA5400 and now lower end EA2700, I am convinced that I will no longer be purchasing Linksys for a while. The price keeps going up, but without the quality and performance that should accompany those increases. The software is becoming less user friendly (in my opinion) and more glitchy. I'd much rather they return to a standard web based setup and management with local IP address.
  • Pros: This device is one of the many new "Smart" routers from Linksys. They have some added functionality/interaction with apps on other mobile devices. Generally this is limited to basic functions such as rebooting the router or making minor settings changes. This can be helpful if you are not near your router or it is mounted in a hard to access location.
  • Cons: The price is high. I believe Linksys has starting making all of their routers "Smart" routers in order to increase the price for the same level of products they've had the last few years.

Just not good enough at this price point

Justin E., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I think this has the potential to be a good product but it just falls short. Perhaps if it were much cheaper I would have rated it differently. The fact of the matter is that it is over priced for what it can do. I have several routers here at home that are able to perform much better for a lower retail price.
  • Pros: The router looks nice and seems well built. It is extremely easy to setup if you are someone who doesn't know a lot about network configuration. Web interface is very smooth and responsive.
  • Cons: I'm all for saving trees, but with it kill Linksys to at least include a slip of paper with the default router password?

Just OK

TJ, Staples
5 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Not as easy to set up as my last router, and the signal strength is a lot poorer. I used to have a very strong signal but this new router, set up in the same location, only gives me a "poor signal strength". I'm rather disappointed.
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection

  • Summary: I liked the old er style better; different interface. Then and now I'd like alittle more literature on Domain server client setups, for IT guys like me who run small businesses and want to add wireless to the domain as well as guests. DNS is always a trick. Good machine.
