Product Reviews
Linksys EA8500 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 159.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robust hardware I got this during Thanks Giving. I wanted a router that can support various devices and provide optimum speed. This device does it, i have at a given time 5+ active devices with no issue with speed. The only thing i realized that I had the same SSID name for 2.5Ghz and 5Ghz frequency and the devices that supported both were loosing connection. Once I chanegs the SSID i had no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent WiFi router This is truly an amazing router, with lots and lots of possibilities for implementing and managing a total network environment. I found it easy to set up security and network control from an Admin focus. I was also able to connect a USB drive to the router, and use it as a file storage device for the entire network.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coverage Overall the ea 8500 is a great router. Initial setup is very easy but you need to open an account with linksys, although I trust them registration should be voluntary, if it is, I was not offered the option in my setup.Instaling my hard disk to the usb port was more complicated because the instructions and help files didn't help, got it to work but I couldn't get all the security features to work. This advanced features need better setup instructions and probably a tutorial although it may be available but I didn't find it. I will be trying again, maybe I'll have better luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage in a two story home! I replaced an older router that was another brand as I was having trouble with coverage in my two story home. After extensive research on the internet and discussing with others at work I decided on this Linksys router. I could not be more pleased with the coverage I am now getting. From the basement to the second floor I get a strong signal. Hooking up the unit was a breeze. I am very pleased with my purchase.
