Product Reviews
Linksys EA9500 - wireless router - 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - desktop is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 315.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice router but there are shortcomings Really nice router. Good interface. Works as stated. However there is a big shortcoming. The guest network ssid name can not be hidden from being broadcast. And, the guest network can not be set up specifying the security. This is unfortunate. I hope Linksys corrects this in a firmware update. Until then, I have the guest network turned off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Thing is SICK!! (Nice) I bought this 2 weeks ago, I was having streaming quality and buffering issue's, well no more, this Router is over the top for me (so far) and I can't say enough. Getting off of my old Netgear Router was the best thing I could do, the external antennas are a must!Nice Job on this one Linksys!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Router This router has to be the worst investment I have ever made. Quickly after my family and I spent over 2 hours trying to set it up, the wifi crashed. Then, the wifi was stable for a good hour. For the last month, the wifi has not stayed up for more than 1 hour at a time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A year and half and still going strong This is an update to a previous review. This router has been so reliable and stable that I forget that I have it. The firmware updates are done automatically and I login every so often to check to see if it's done one but just for kicks. This morning I woke up to no internet. I looked at my modem and all the lights were the appropriate color. I thought, "oh no, don't tell me my Linksys conked out on me!" Luckily it wasn't the router, it was Charter Spectrum that had a regional issue. That got me to thinking how well this thing has performed for us. I never lose wifi signal in a 2000 sq ft. home. Never had to reboot the router because it was acting funny. I can access it from my phone or my computers. It handles our gaming and PC consoles with no hiccups. It performs a lot better than our ISP!Like most of you we have tons of connected devices of all types and all perform reliably. If they don't, it's always the device (like cheap Sony Blu-Ray disc players) and they need to be unplugged and then plugged back in. I'm yet to find a wifi Blu-Ray player that is reliable with any brand router. But good, quality devices like my HP laser printer, our PC's, laptops, iPads, iPhones, gaming consoles, smart TV, etc. are flawless with this router. I will be back in another year and half with another update.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Router is AWESOME Ok I'd like to say that I use a Linksys router now is has been a very good router. But I upgraded to this router, my home uses a LOT of Wifi. We have 30 items running over Wifi most all of the time. We have an IP camera system with 7 cameras as well. We stream a lot of video content, We play games, plus always on social media and man can this router keep up!! It has been very worry free, the setup is so VERY easy. I am shocked at how good this router works!!! We had the AC1900 router from Linksys is has been a VERY good router, So we went on and got the AC5400 it was worth it! I would say if you need to upgrade your home router or just want something very worry free this is the one for you. It has an awesome Android and Apple app, that we can control the router from anywhere. It offers usb ports for safe and fast file sharing. 8 Gigabit ports for hardwired networking. The coverage of the wifi is far greater than i expected, I can move freely into my yard and out buildings with out loosing wifi. All in all Both routers from Linksys are great! I could not be happier!! I would say if your looking for an awesome router, this one takes the cake hands down.A Very Happy Customer,-Matt
