Product Reviews
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 160reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SURPRISINGLY BETTER BOUGHT A ASUS 4-Port Gigabit Wireless AC Router (RT-AC68U) AND THIS Linksys EA6900 AC1900. Based on numerous review and citations i thought the Asus would smoke the Linksys. The opposite became true. The lLinksys has far stronger signal strength and range throughout my 2 story small house and yard.This actiually shocked me... I had read the CNET reviews of both, which basically gave the highest praise and results to the Asus, and in the Linksys review (both 2013) CNET pretty mucH dismembered this Lnksys. Obviously something is wrong in the reveiw process and fairness department's there. I;m totally pleasaed witrh this Linksys.Gave away the Asus as a Christmas Gift...Jim...Fife. WA January 5, 2017
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product. It's already a little obsolete The product in general can be said to be good. Today it could be said that it is an obsolete product for the market segment that was created (AC 1900, dual band). Today there are better options. This should have been noticed by manufacturers / shops because it has been falling significantly in price in recent months. The configuration options are not the easiest I've seen. And neither are the features spectacular. Cons: NO DDNS with NO-IP. It is NOT supported by DD-WRT firmware. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top-notch router This router is simply amazing. I have always had excellent router mostly from Linksys but EA6900 is really special. Firstly, the range is outstanding. Where Asus 68U throws 30-35 megabits EA6900 gets 48-52 megabis and that is around 30 feet through 3 thick steel reinforced walls. I was stunned with its performance. But remember that 2 outside antennas MUST be positioned to 30 degrees left and right in compliance with the manual. Thanks Linksys on this great router. December 29, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by It has seen better days....... I bought this 2 years ago and it served it purpose well. I recently unplugged it because we purchased a new media center. I had to reboot it several times before any devices would connect. The 4th time was the charm but it took my devices a few minutes to connect. I use to have full bars throughout my house and I can be in the same room as the router and drops to one or 2 bars. It is not getting any interference from anything because it sits on a shelf by itself. I'm about to purchase the WRT3200ACM and I hope it does not disappoint! December 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features and Reliability I purchased this router to replace an older model that would drop the connection requiring a re-boot of the router. No problem with this model and the signal(s)/connectivity is strong. December 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by I had Great Expectations ... Setup was HORRIBLE. I bought this router once I read reviews and thought it was going to be easy to setup and provide a good signal with good coverage. Unfortunately setup was a disaster. I followed the prompts to the letter but I could not connect to the router. Finally I had to call customer service, which was excellent once I reached someone. I had to finally cable my laptop to the router via ethernet and enter the router address to make a connection. I still cannot connect via linksysmartwifi. But using the router address works for me and is ok. The strength and range has been good so far. December 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy setup Up and running shortly after bringing it home. As always linksys makes a good unit, thanks Linksys! December 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Router Great router for basic internet connectivity. I love the beamforming ability that follows your connected devices throughout your network zone. I recently downloaded the iOS smart app to control my network from anywhere. I was able to lock the internet through parental control of my teenage son on school nights. If not he would be up all night doing whatever. But I am coming from a netgear router and this was a tidy bit different to setup but it was easy enough. I really like this router along with my Motorola Surfboard docsis 3 modem I am all set for now. But I think I will have this router for a long time. Keep it in a well ventilated area, because I have read that they can get warm with usage. Don't really know if the antennas are doing anything. But they look cool. December 16, 2016
