Product Reviews
Linksys EA9500 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 286.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic speeds and Great coverage! I purchased this router as an upgrade to my Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC1900. The AC1900 has been rock solid for going on two years. It was located in my home office on the second floor and provided good 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz performance to a Roku on the first floor. I had a range extender on the first floor to support the a Roku and Samsung TV in the basement. The AC5400 signal is such that the range extender is no longer needed. I've had the AC5400 for four weeks and have observed no dropped wireless connections and the unit is no warmer than the AC1900.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product Replaced my old Linksys 6300 router. What a difference. Now all my devices (a lot) are all connected and working as they should.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Setup The setup of this router was easy as with any Linksys product. I am however disappointed in the Administration screens. The information is very basic but I haven't found anything that I cannot setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Simple to Set Up and amazing dista I did have one issue, when I received the first unit and hooked it up the unit would not lock on to my Internet feed, no way no how. After several hours of attempting rebooting and resetting processes I returned the unit and reordered. The second unit took me less than 45 minutes to completely set up and check the WiFi reach, it was amazing and has operated flawlessly for almost a month. I am getting a solid max signal at the farthest reaches of my two story home and now have a solid signal in all areas of our yard, from the pool to the mail box and beyond. I am now streaming videos for the first time from one end of my home to the other.

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.
