Stay away at all costs

Kyle M., Newegg

  • Summary: A family member purchased this router and I'm constantly getting called because their internet stops working. Every time it's because this router has locked up. The plastic case feels very hot, to me. I think it's overheating.
  • Pros: None, really. If I had to pick one I guess it has brand recognition.
  • Cons: Overheats. Big-brother cloud software. Unreliable. Constantly needs to be reset.

Complete garbage. 2 in 4 months

  • Summary: Linksys will respond with something pointless below. I have spent hours on phone, chat, email, hold, etc... DO NOT BUY THIS.
  • Pros: I am in IT and have used LinkSys routers for over 18 years. This router is NOT up to their former 'standards'.
  • Cons: the first one stopped working altogether 2 months in. Linksys RMA'd it. The new one started dropping connection to cable modem after another 2 months. Sometimes it drops, sometimes it locks up. endless chats to linksys tech support and customer service are pointless. "linksys cares" agent. linksy...

  • Summary: I lease out a beach condo for the summer and I count on this router to supply Wi-Fi to my guests. It puts out 2 signals for if you want a separate Wi-Fi for guests that you don't want to have access to your own network.

Great Router - Horrible Cooling Design

Nathan E., Newegg
21 April 2015
  • Summary: I had to active cool the last router of this form factor too by having it sit on a stand that blew a fan onto its bottom to keep it cool as well. I bought this knowing I would need to cool this one too, if you don't want to actively cool this thing in some form or another I would stay far clear.
  • Pros: I have had this router running for the last 7-8 months with 0 problems, never drops net and stays absolutely rock solid. The wifi signal strength is superb, the mobile configuration app is pretty handy. Overall it is a wonderful router to have and works perfectly for what I bought it for. That be...
  • Cons: Cisco has opted for a sleek stylish design on this router and completely ignored the router cooling. If set flat on its feet the curved top with no vents just pools all the hot air in it. The only vents are on the bottom and sides and the bottom vents are blocked by the board. I have the router s...

EA3500 VERSION 1 LATE 2013 MODEL

Anonymous, Newegg
11 April 2015
  • Pros: Dual Band Wireless work for iPad air, gaming console, printer, laptop. Wired work for gaming console, laptop, desktop and printer. USB worked for 8GB flash drive and the printer. Everything fair to good till today. Speed 20-45 down on the 2.4GHz and 40-50 down on the 5GHz (maybe a con; speed vary).
  • Cons: Seems the router work best on the 5GHz only even with same name and password. Maybe could be intermittent. From a android kitkat phone printing was slow. Could not connect to the internet got a bad gateway message today.I went and got a TP-LINK TL-WR841N v8.4 router working fine so far. The EA350...

Decent router, didn't work 100% for me

Ryan Padilla, Amazon
20 February 2015
  • Summary: It ended up not working out for me, but I thought I'd leave as unbiased of a review as I could. Here goes: PROS: 1. It has great UI through the linksys smart wifi thing, so I didn't need to setup the network through the CD.

  • Excerpt: Bought this product to try and solve my buffering issues when streaming movies. My cable router was causing movies to buffer every two minutes which is obviously very frustrating. Installed this beast and BOOM! no more buffering.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
