Excellent value and performance

Melissa, Amazon

  • Summary: Works great, especially considering the internal antennas. I mounted this router in the same spot as our previous device, a WRT54GS with 7dB external antennas. The house has considerably better coverage, even in 802.11g mode. Most of our devices support 802.11n/a and the difference from 802.11g was quite noticeable.

3x Cable Speed Increase in Apartment ... No Neighbor Interference ... Works on Mac & iOS

Rezdave, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Achieved a 3x upgrade to my wireless speed (22Mbps -> 65Mbps) over previous WRT54G in the same room, and 20x in the back room (~3Mbps -> 65Mbps) with the change to 802.11N vs. G. Having the 5GHz band means no more interference from neighbors around my crowded apartment setting, but even the 2.4GHz band is clean and fast (about 40Mbps in the back room) due to better technology, N-spec., and admittedly better placement on my part.

$35 Well Spent!

  • Summary: I recently got an upgrade to my cable internet, but was frustrated that I wasn't getting the supposed speed increase. after checking connection settings and getting the modem swapped out, I concluded that it must have been the ancient router my girlfriend had from when she originally hooked up the service years ago.

Had to change the default settings for my setup

Wayne, Amazon

  • Summary: At first was a little disappointed. Slow throughput speeds and had to reboot the router at least once a day. Then did some research online and found out that the default settings are not necessarily the best. Adjusted settings as needed and no reboots in two weeks so far and far faster throughput speeds!

Not a good choice--unless you like malware

William Vaughn "Dr. Bill", Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I never got to test the performance of this router. I purchased it to attempt to share my laser printer on the local area network. BUT once I installed the Linksys USB sharing application, I discovered that it installed malware on my system. It redirected my home page to "Vosteran" search that pretends to look like Google (my former homepage site) but prompts me to "repair" my computer with questionable applications. This is totally unacceptable.

  • Summary: very nice router, i really love it since the day i got it. I've got no problems with it. I love the USB port at the back because i plugged a large capacity external hard drive at the back that i had partitioned in 3 section and it gives me great access to all of it on all of my devices including ipad and iphone,( except my ps3, i might have to work on that) but so far it is marvelous.

What I expected out of a new AP.

MussSyke, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: My experience with this as a wireless access in my four level house with plaster and lathe walls is that it's best just to use the 2.4 GHz band. That works well, all my devices stay connected, and I can set it up as simply as I want to, or add options like port forwarding and QoS as necessary.

I miss the classic 192.168.1.1 "advanced setup" straight out of the box

D. Coral, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I've been using Linksys WiFi routers since the company first introduced them. It is unfortunate that on some of these newer models, the setup is not as simple as going to 192.168.1.1 and getting direct access to the "advanced" settings. It took me a while to figure out how to get around the babysitter software to do some manual configuration on this N750 router.

Linksys EA3500 750N

Charlemagne, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: I replaced my Nortel 650N with the Linksys 750N the biggest and only noticeable difference between the two was range. If I went out to the garage my wireless signal would drop significantly. Using my iPad as the only way to measure signal strength within 50 to 60 line of sight no obstacles I could get 3 signal bars on the iPad and stream music with no issues. 70 to 90 feet with multiple cinder brick walls the iPad dropped to two bars and no issues with streaming music.

new yorker "drealyea", Amazon

  • Summary: Great N class router. If you aren't planning on upgrading other parts of you Wi-Fi network. However it is at this point in time older technology/ The newer routers feature ac class. Wireless 802.11n supports a maximum of four antennas at roughly 100Mbit each, where 802.11ac can support up to eight antennas at over 400Mbit each.
