  • Conclusion: It has been quite some time since I have been able to have a play around with some of Linksys’ networking hardware and boy it feels good to be back under the wings of one of their latest routers.
  • Pros: Renowned networking Vendor, Superior wireless speed of up to 1.3Gbps on offer (with compatible devices), Gigabit WAN interface, Smart WiFi mobile applications, Ease to use GUI, Sleek and simple design
  • Cons: High performance hardware carries a stronger price premium, Wall mounting points leave router in a side on orientation with the antennae and cabling coming out to one side as oppose to up from the body of the router.

NikkTech
11 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Although Linksys was just recently purchased by Belkin that doesn't seem to have affected their products (at least not in a negative matter) and thus the EA6900 AC1900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router took the performance crown from the TEW-812DRU AC1750 Wireless Router by TRENDnet with ease.

Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900

CNET
30 October 2013
  • Summary: Plagued by issues, the Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900 is only as good as a single-band router and hence not worth its premium price.
  • Pros: The Linksys EA6900 Smart WiFi Wireless AC Router AC1900 sports powerful hardware to offer superfast Wi-Fi speed at close range. The router boasts a compact and practical design.
  • Cons: The Linksys EA6900 has a long list of issues, including an unstable 5GHz band, a nonworking USB 3.0 port, a glitchy Linksys Smart Wi-Fi cloud-based feature, and overheating. Its performance over longer range is also not as good as similarly configured routers, and there are no new features.

TechRadar UK
3 April 2014
  • Summary: An impressive router, but how come 802.1ac still isn't finalized?
  • Pros: Fast 802.11ac wireless performance, Responsive software interface, Widgets for quick access to software functions, Router settings accessible via cloud, Fast USB ports, The Linksys EA6900 is powerful, its on-board software looks great and it's straightforward to use.

  • Cons: Only one USB 3 port, Becomes quite hot during use, It's slightly cheeky that Linksys didn't include two USB 3 ports, but one that's forgivable, given the USB 2 port is fairly nippy anyway. At £147, the Linksys EA6900 is significantly more expensive than most 802.11n routers, but all 802.11ac rout...
