Product Reviews
Linksys EA9500 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 306.
Rated 3 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but not worth the money It is a good product but not fantastic as told by Linksys Store Sales on line. There are 6 cons, first is it is huge and you cannot mount it on the wall. Second it is supposed to be for better coverage and range and it works no better than my old E3000. Third if you use MAC filtering there is a limit to the number of devices. I did not have such a small limit on my E3000. Forth is I cannot connect their range extender and they just sent me a second one. The last one is the big price tag. No more cisco connect, now you use either the web or your browser only with passwords.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just Another Router Definitely a home/very small business router. Used to setting up a router to my standards. Once I learned of the restrictions, I forced myself to comply. Since the router was finallly configured, it has performed without issues. The negatives:Cannot use static IP addresses. Limit of 50 devices under DHCP address scheme. Having to pepper support with questions to get to the real truth; e.g., Linksys knows there is a firmware issue with the Network Map feature. Had to turn off IPv6 to stop the router from reassigning IPv4 address to a device that was reserved.The second level support finallly figuring out my Linksys Range Extender was causing a major problem, shut it down, and stability ensued. The positives:Three year support. When finally comfigured - works flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable, the best Wi-Fi Router i ever use Internet in Vietnam is very slow. But when i use EA9500 Max, i never thing about speed after. Excellent

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass on this one I have had two of the EA9500 routers and they are about to replace with a third. Works fine for a while and then starts dropping connection. Gets progressively worse from there. Then you have to go through the whole return process. I would pass on this router until they somehow manage to fix the issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unusable Linksys ran a 26.1 mile marathon with this one. While electrically it's close to flawless, there are no wall/ceiling mounting holes built into the bottom of the case. This of course makes it in usable for anyone but those the limited group who have the option to leave it out on a table. Too bad.
