Product Reviews
Linksys EA9500 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 280.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design, Fast and Stable. Great Router!-Design, very modern and feels "heavy duty" compared to some of the really lightweight routers I've seen. Antenna design is really cool - although it would be better if the antenna's were detachable so they could be placed farther away from the router. I like that there is an actual on/off switch, and that the WPS and Wifi Off buttons are on the side.-Hardware - LOVE the 8 Ethernet ports, eliminates the need and clutter of an additional switch. The LED / Logo on the unit is actually very functional as well as adding an aesthetic design element to what is normally a boring device :) -Functionality - Excellent coverage, very fast and extremely stable. Interface is acceptable although it can lag just a bit switching between screens, one drawback I do not like is that it has a speed test feature but this feature requires Adobe Flash in order to use it. I would like to see a firmware enhancement that eliminates this requirement. The feature set is pretty robust and complete, although I would like to see Link Aggregation as an option (having 8 ethernet ports this would be a great feature to be able to use).-Wish list - This router does come with a power brick - I would like to see it with just a simple cord connecting directly to the unit as these power bricks and transformers are just too bulky and are always hard to keep out of the way. I would be willing to accept the device being slightly larger in design if it had a built in power supply. A wall mount option would also be nice to have.All In All, I am happy with this router and do not regret selecting this brand and model over any of the others that I compared when shopping around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AC5400 MU-MIMO Router Have had this router for a little over a week now and love it. It definitely provides Wi-Fi all over our house without any weak areas. I have Gigabit internet and it is available everywhere.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not see an increase in speed... Did not see an increase in speed but rather caused all kinds of headaches. I made a video for my channel. After an update I just could not get anything to work... and kept crashing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I purchased this router last week, arrived on time. Setup was very easy within minutes I was back online and have all my devices connected to the network. The router itself has a lager base foot print than the other router, so if your upgrading allow for some room around this router. Love the fact that it has 8 network ports and 2 USB ports this way you don't need another router or some other device to connect to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ! Router took care of all my network problems. I am very impressed with the installation of this router, it was so fast and easy. It really is a smart router, it went through my house and picked up all my security camera, printer, IPads, etc. Well worth the money and would recommend the AC5400 good for now and the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Preformer I bought the router a couple weeks ago. I replaced an older Linksys router that was over 5 years old. In our house, we have 12 connected devises and the old router couldn't keep up. I know its probably over kill, but pretty soon, we will be buying a new smart TV. A big plus is the app, where you can keep track of all your devises and knowing if anyone who's not suppose to be using your WiFi signal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy setup with current features Setup from iPhone was a hassle. As soon as I changed the SSID, the safari app could do no more. And the Linksys app only works from scratch. Reset the router and configured from a laptop. It only took a couple minutes and it was setup how I wanted. I upgraded from a 10+ year old Linksys that could keep up with one device, but I think I overwhelmed it with all our devices on at the same time. Now all drops seemed to go away. Love the connectivity, lack of drops, all the Ethernet ports, and the effortless running since install. I feel that I may be able to get another 10+ years off this device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handles all of my Wi-Fi devices at the same time! This router was easy to setup and connect. I turned all of my devices on at the same time and the speed and connectivity was excellent. That consisted of 3 wi-fi tv's, 3 wi-fi blu-ray players, 2 wi-fi home theaters, 1 desktop PC, 1 laptop PC, 1 I Pad Pro, and 1 Android phone. I successfully connected and streamed and browsed, all at full strength, 5 bars. No signal drops or buffering on any device. This is the first time I've seen this performance. Well worth the price.
