Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't use USB ports with Mac OSs newer than 10.10Lots of good things to say about this router. Wifi works fine, as do ethernet connections. HOWEVER, one reason I bought this unit was the USB ports, as I have several devices with USB interfaces that I wanted to connect to my network rather than directly to my computer, which is a late 2013 iMac 27" desktop running High Sierra OS (10.13.4). In order to connect a printer (or other device, apparently) you have to download LinkSys' USB Control Center, which requires an SXUPTP driver. This driver is incompatible with mac OSs above 10.10, so it doesn't download, and you're out of luck. NO USB connectivity. Leaves me with 5 devices (printer, flatbed scanner, Optical R/W drive, and a couple more minor ones, that I can't connect to the network. BUMMER.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parental control features; very poor and don't work properly.I purchased an EA9500 router and it works well when reset every 30 days or so. Not a problem with that! Coverage is good. Covers my 2900 square foot home very well. Pretty fast as well. Nice router and would purchase again when it stops working. All features work well except for one. If you want parental control features, don't purchase this router.The parental controls feature are very poor. You can only block 14 devices using the parental controls feature and less than 15 websites per device. For parents, you need to be able to block any website using a key word. There are more than 15 sites that should be blocked. With this router you can't do this. Called manufacturer and they said that they don't have any router that blocks per a key word or works better to block certain sites. This is all that they have.The other part of the parental controls is blocking time of day. This if flawed as well. I have the time to block internet usage at 1am to 6am. However, I try to use these blocked devices other times during the day and it still blocks even during non blocked hours. I have to disable parental controls to allow access the internet for devices with parental controls set and then enable it once again. This is rather easy to do from home or remotely using the app. You can turn off or on parental controls for all devices at the same time or individually.Would not purchase again because of this feature.
