Great router for my home network
Posted by: georgiagirl from: on
I purchased the EA6350 to replace a Linksys E2500 router that was struck by lighting. This router was recommended by the associate at Best Buy. Has a great range and perfect amount of ports on back for everything I need for my home network. Was very easy to set up BUT it locked up my wireless printer settings. I ended up hiring a local computer/network technician to come to my home to get the printer unlocked. I was advised that the router actually "overrode" and changed all the wireless printer's IP address and factory settings therefore making it impossible to access. After $175 and 4 1/2 hrs later, the printer was unlocked and working. Linksys needs more documentation in with the product to address some of these possible problems and "how to fix". Other than that I love the router. I would advise anyone who purchases this router and has a wireless printer, to turn the printer off when installing one of these routers. Then install everything to the network BEFORE turning on the wireless printer.

You can do much, much better than this router
Posted by: DelAce from: on
Purchased this based on the decent reviews it had been getting and several different lists that ranked it as one of the best router options in its category currently on the market. Not sure if I got a lemon or not, but it would only give me a portion of my wireless speed (Ethernet was fine at around 100mbps (I'm only suppose to get about 75mbps), but wireless would only get up to around 27-30+mbps, even sitting right in front of the router). Mbps dropped the further I moved from the router, with no evidence of beam forming. Tried different settings and trouble shooting techniques from various sources to no avail.
Returned the router after a few days and picked up a Netgear with similar specs as this one for about the same price. The Netgear was able to consistently get 70mbps over the 2.4G wireless connection and over 90mbps on the 5G wireless connection, with no trouble shooting necessary, multiple devices wirelessly connected to the router and at various distances from the router. I originally thought the Linksys was being impacted by others who live close by that are on the 2G bandwidth, but clearly that is not the case since the Netgear worked perfectly on both 2G and 5G connections (In case you're curious, I purchased a Netgear CM600).
Seems that there is something wrong with the smart wifi features on this Linksys; buyer beware, especially if you intend to use high-speed internet service and/or need wireless coverage outside of the immediate room where your router is.

Works great all the time
Posted by: FrugalFrancis from: on
ISP is Mediacom (Download Speed up to 15 Mbps, Upload speed up to 5 Mbps) in case that matters to anyone reading my review. I purchased this router along with the Motorola SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 High-Speed Cable Modem. I mention this as I think the two together are what work so well. Before this purchase, I invested $130 into a Motorola all-in-one router/modem and had nothing but trouble and the internet didn't work half the time. With this new modem and the above mentioned router, our internet (including Netflix) performs perfectly. I would highly recommend this product.

Great router for personal or business use
Posted by: Dmartin from: San Antonio, TX on
Purchased after cable company stopped providing wi-fi to our business, which was great because their hardware was unreliable. Much more reliable network, great transfer speeds between devices including a networked storage raid device, it can handle all traffic with ease. At any one time we can have up to 15 wireless and wired devices connected and experience no issues. All-in-all, great buy, highly recommend.

Ok router for an apartment, but nothing larger
Posted by: BBNSB from: Owasso,OK on
This is by far the worst router I have ever purchased. It was very easy to set up, but the range is completely worthless for me. I drop signal to my devices that are a mere 40 feet away from the router. My computer that is 3 feet from the router has incredibly fast download speeds. I can't even use wireless in the back of my house at all. I upgraded (actually downgraded) from the EA4500 router which was much better than this. Same company, new technology, worse performance. For $130 retail, you will be very disappointed unless you live in an apartment or a small one story house. I will now have to spend additional money for a range extender when I should have spent a little more and just got a better wireless router.

Do Not Buy
Posted by: Flippy from: NC on
Router is horrible. Service from Linksys is even worse than router, it's non-existent. If I could return this and exchange for another name brand router I would. My last router worked without a hitch. Died after two years and I bought this piece of junk. If you have a good one, I guess you're lucky.
I tried Linksys Live Chat. If you have all day to wait for them, I guess you have more time than I do. Do not buy. I will never buy another Linksys router. If Best Buy doesn't take it back, I may never buy anything from them again.

Great product options
Posted by: JimSwarthow from: on
I looked at and reviewed numerous routers. This one had the parent controls that I was looking for. It also has a couple of different bands available. We get good reception across the entire house, in the garage, and on the front porch (2200 sf ranch). It was easy to set up. The online program was very simple and easy to use.

Has greatly improved my internet connections
Posted by: bingogirl1 from: on
We have several computers in a 2 story house. With our last router, we were continously being disconnected from the internet, especially if two computers were in use. The difference is 100% better.
