Highly recommend....Stylish and Functional...While I'm not a big fan of subscription-based services, this comes with the first 12 months free and then it's less than $10/month, which isn't much when it's covering everything in my home (currently a Samsung SmartTV and Blu-ray player, Xbox, Google Home Mini, Chromecast, Pixel, Pixel 2, two iPhones, and three laptops-a MacBook, a ThinkPad, and a Surface Book)....I've been using the F-Secure Freedome app for a few years to establish a VPN on my phone and have always found it very easy to use.Connect and secure every device in your home with this F-Secure SENSE smart home Wi-Fi router.

nice ....Love it...For connectivity on the router itself, it marks off the important checkboxes - USB 3 connection for a hard drive or flash drive, USB 2 for a printer or another flash or hard drive that doesn't need to transfer data as fast, a gigabit ethernet connection to whatever your internet connection is brought into your home with, and a 4 port gigabit ethernet switch....This router is also capable of creating a special isolated "guest" network which is not going to be encrypted, your guests will be presented with a web page to enter "guest" password (kinda like at the hotels, airports, also known as a "captive" mode).Your household wants to play, stream and work online all at once. With this Linksys router, you can do it all without buffering or other interruptions. Use the Smart Wi-Fi app to get started, control, and monitor your home network from anywhere.

I love...5 stars...I love that it takes up very little space, but due to not having external antennas, it goes out a lot if being used for wifi access for smartphones, but is fine with being used for laptops and computers if you don't mind a few delays and even though it's a dual- band wireless-n router with built in cable modem, it's difficult to get the secondary band to function and wouldn't recommend it for large homes but it's rather more suitable for apts....The Netgear N600 dual-band wireless-N router works great by combining a wireless router and a cable modem into one device which clears up desk space, especially with it standing on edge instead of lying flat on the desk.The NETGEAR N600 WiFi DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Router with N600 simultaneous dual band WiFi router and integrated DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem, provides 8x faster download speeds, up to 340 Mbps. It's CableLabs DOCSIS 3.0 Certified to work with U.S. cable Internet providers.

IT'S OK...not bad...With the recent rollback of net neutrality I bought this to run as a dedicated VPN router, big mistake... The router overall performs very will without lag and maintained a very fast overall in network speed, however the PTPP protocol needs to reestablish itself about every 10-15min causing a complete loss of internet usage in the time frame....We use a couple ps4s and pcs with wired connections and the wifi is mostly used for phones and other small devices so it doesn't have a lot to do, but I've only ever had to reset it once after a storm and it came right back up without a hitch.You demand a lot from your Wi-Fi network.

No lags...Love it...As a Best Buy employee I've tried a couple of router but the Linksys EA9500 is hands down theeee best router I've ever had...the range on the router is more than enough for any home and the speed is great even if you have a lot of devices especially if your a gamer or own a 4K TV...all and all this is one of the best Tri-Band Routers on the market...So far 3 days into it, i'm impressed, 5g is stronger than on the previous Linksys Router, I have yet to drop a connection, AND the UI is a lot better than the WRT32X or the wireless N router ( which looks like it has come out of the 80's ) This router is set up in my laundry room and has several walls for the 5ghz signal to pass through but so far it's doing the job and doing it pretty well.Your household is busy streaming media, working online, and playing games every day.

Love it...Worth it...This router is a great choice for anyone that wants a simple network attached storage solution and a great router and wireless access point for his or her home....However, after delving into the router itself I found that it was a bit limited in its capability and in some ways think that if I had to redo it all I would stick to a linksys and just get a usb connected HD that I could still leave attached to the router.The all-new AirPort Time Capsule works with OS X to automatically and wirelessly back up everything on your Mac to its 3TB hard drive.1 And it doubles as a full-featured Wi-
