    What all is included in box?   (11 Answers)

    What all do I need to set up this router, besides an internet connection? Do I use Ethernet wires to connect to the different components or HDMI cords? How many components can I hook into this model? This model is wired, is this good or bad? And what situations is wired best used? And lastly how many mbps will I need to run streaming movies on a 60" plasma tv, 2 computers, a bluray dvd, a speaker bar, and a Roku3.

      Answer

      I didn't plug anything into the router other than the Ethernet connection to the modem. I set up everything wireless. I don't know the limit of wireless connections, but I have three computers, a printer, and two smart phones that communicate with it. In my box, I got the router, a power converter with the needed wall plug and connection to the router, and short Ethernet cable. The router has a USB connection and 4 Ethernet connections in addition to the input connector. Can't answer your question regarding the mbps.

            Is there a setting to extend the range?   (10 Answers)

            There are a few blind spots only 50 feet away. Otherwise the router works great.

              I got a WiFi range extender for 40 bucks put it at the 50-75% strength region and it fixed my range issues, only thing that sucks is that you have to buy something else.

                Hi, Motherof1. The Linksys EA6350 is a plain router. You need to have an Internet Service Provider in order to have internet access. When configured, you'll be able to share and connect multiple devices; both wired and wireless. Should you need more information, email us at LinksysCares@linksys.com.

              I need an auto detect modem/router combo with exterior antennas that will work with centurylink. Will this one do that?   (10 Answers)

              A phone tech suggested I get this so we could have service extended from our house to a guest house. At the moment wifi doesn't even go into our master bedroom and the tech said due to interference with TV on outside bedroom wall.

                Answer

                It's a router. It does not contain a modem. You would need a separate modem with this. You might want to call Century Link and ask them what modems or combo modem/router is compatible.
