Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speed, and Range Very Happy with is router, it has been very reliable. The speed is fast and Reliable. The NAS part of the router is the fastest I have seen. My only complaint is the router doesn't support time machine backup for my Macs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Product I bought the Linksys EA8500 Max-Stream AC2600 MU-MIMO Smart Wi-Fi Router because it was an extremely capable product with a legacy of having great service for good value. I have not been disappointed either. I have plaster walls in an old home with wire mesh underneath to hold the plaster. It make my home like NSA. Very hard to have coverage of any kind due to this shielding. But the EA8500 is doing admirably and I continue to know that I made the correct choice in routers. This is the 5th Linksys router I've owned. In two words...Strong and Dependable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use to be excelent, but... Use to be great! However, since the last firmware update I am experiencing connectivity issues: the usual devices do not connect or connect but with "no internet". I changed back to the 2016 firmware and it was ok for a couple of hours. However, the issues are back again. It is a pity. I used an EA 4500 before the EA 8500 and another Linksys router before that. It used to be the best router on the marked so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not too hard to set up It's big but I know that it's doing a good job of protecting me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Internet speed slows down on its own I have got this unit a month ago. The rest of the features is fine. The major issue was i have to keep reset it to get back my internet speed i subscribe. The internet speed comes back to normal everytime i factory reset it. Have even complaint to local telco several time but end up is the linksys issue as the stock router is ok. Any resolution for this?Am using the latest firmware from linksys website

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Product, but Firmware Security is VERY WEAK You access the URL 192.168.1.1 and then the login screen of the router will provide a login page. If you do not have an login account just set one up.... In the case you only want 1 user to access the ROUTER you are out of luck. Any user can just login to the url and create an account. BAD.
