  • Summary: I purchased this router 2.5 years ago. It seems to work fine, however we are only getting 7 mbps out of it, when our service is supposed to be 50 since it was recently upgraded by our cable provider.

Unsatisfactory wifi range; reset button killed it permanently.

Avoid This Router

Katawampas, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Avoid this router. There are much better routers out there. I used to love Linksys. I have several of their older routers and liked them. But now I would advise to avoid Linksys. It is a real shame they've gone down the tubes with this router. Setup should have been easy but it was frustrating.

  • Summary: The router conked off within a year. Worked fine for a year or so and then bandwidth dropped to 7Mbps with both the wire and wireless. Round trip delay through my work VPN went upto 500ms, and working from home became impossible.

  • Summary: I cant believe how bad this router is. It is actually worse than the E1200 I replaced. Keeps dropping connection and extremely poor speed in all areas of the house except the room the router is in !! This is my second router in two months.

Did not meet expectations.

Eldonsdad, Amazon

  • Summary: Disappointed! Bought to replace a working Linksys which didn't quite have the wireless range I needed expecting this to be much better based on other reviews. It was basically the same. Also, the smart wi-fi application didn't work and had to setup manually.

Buyer beware

Not A Kid, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: BE VERY AWARE OF WHAT YOU ARE BUYING INTO WITH THE "EA" ROUTERS! I bought this router about a month ago. It had the usual issues discussed by other users on Amazon, such as you cannot make the router Admin password different than your wireless password unless you're willing to give up running the...
