2 out of 5 eggsEA line of routers SUCKS!

Pros: Easy setup, good packaging, comes with a pamphlet with default settings, gigabit ports, ability to turn off indicator lights (Great idea!)

Cons: This is the third Cisco Linksys router I've tried out in as many weeks. Both the EA 6300, EA6500, and EA3500 all have ridiculous local ping times. My ping -t to the router varies from 2 - 10ms. Which doesn't seem like alot, but considering that I have a pair of teamed gigabit intel NIC's it's ridiculous. I've tested every conceivable option to resolve the "high latency" to no avail. The average response of every other router that I've ever owned was <1ms except under load average.

Other Thoughts: Save your money, Do not buy any router in the EA series as each of them has shown the same issue, which is a shame because I've always liked Cisco Linksys. I replaced this with my old DLink DIR-825 until I can find a decent new AC router. And my pings are back to <1ms.

3 out of 5 eggsRange impaired

Pros: I had a Linksys wireless-g router for so long with nary a hiccup; but was having some range problems with my iPad2 and wife's laptop. Time for a change. Went to BB expecting to get a range extender and salesman talked me into this wireless-ac unit for awesome range and speed. Price was OK and hoped this would do the trick. Setup was real easy for this pseudo novice and all our devices were quickly connected. So far so good. Speed for g units was good if very close. Same for wireless-n newer laptop.

Cons: The main problem I had was with its range for both g and n. Wife and kids complained about speed (fewer bars and slower). My iPad was markedly slower and only had 1 bar signal strength. Tried lots of things, reading posts, troubleshooting, playing with channels, bandwidth, etc. QoS/prioritization was off. I did get slightly better performance but still weak signal. Wireless-ac must be great, but backward compatibility to g and n are definitely not. Giving up ...

Other Thoughts: Decided to return this back to BB and exchanged for an ASUS RT-N66R (same thing as N66U). I decided I didn't need wireless-ac and this unit was hailed for its range and performance by CNet. It didn't disappoint. Head and shoulders above the Linksys for range (3 bars vs. 1 bar on my iPad).

2 out of 5 eggsRouter

Pros: Sleek. Works as described when working...

Cons: I continually ran into an issue of really slow down load speeds. The router itself has a speed test which would get around 55mbps down. This is what it's suppose to be. But my devices connected to the router (wired and wireless)would only get 2mbps down. I spent 2 hrs with Linksys support and they were unable to solve the problem.

4 out of 5 eggs good so far

Pros: Very easy setup. Speed performance is very good. USB port is great for my backup drive.

Cons: Have not gotten the guest network to work, but haven't spent much time on that.

Other Thoughts: I did research for different routers. Been a fan of Linksys so I will always lean to them. After bad experience with a Linksys 2000N I wanted to make sure not to have the same issue with this one. I read all the reviews I could and the biggest complaint I saw was that the web interface was very bad, which its not. The reviews also stated do not upgrade the firmware cause might cause the AC speed to drop, to the design speed for this router. Last night I had issues connecting with my iOS devices connecting and poor performance. I decided to upgrade the firmware and so far everything is working great.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy Setup: Linksys routers have always been quick and easy and this one is no exception. Took less than 5 min to completely configure, including basic setup and advanced routing.

Nice tool set: Includes a speed test app, DynDNS config options and device prioritization.

USB 3.0 port quick easy setup for a share drive

IPv6: Great future-proof addition to the router.

Wireless Speeds: Coming from a WRT54G it's obviously much quicker than my previous router. I have not run any speed tests to compare to other Dual-Band routers. However from the research I conducted online it stacks up well with the competition

New Egg: As always NE has the best prices, got free shipping and received the package quickly.

Cons: Range: It's not a deal breaker but I do lose some range as compared to my WRT54G but I suppose that is to be expected with an internal antenna. The range reduction is marginal but worth mentioning.

2.4ghz band seems a bit sketchy: This could be a result of the devices I was trying to connect. My laptop and droid connect exclusively to the 5g band. However, my wife’s IPhone and Win 8 machine constantly had problems connecting to either. I had to drop the security from WPA2 down to WPA on the 2.4 band. Her devices will now connect but it still acts up occasionally.

Other Thoughts: Overall this seems to be a good product and I would recommend to others.

5 out of 5 eggsGood So Far

Pros: Really great coverage, I use in a 2750 sq ft home and I even have coverage at my neighbors. Also extremely easy to use/setup, especially if your have NFC devices. Very integrated online router tool that can be accessed through any internet network (cell/wifi). Lastly its a Linksys device, the last linksys router I had still works so I assume this one will be just as good.

Cons: The only con I think someone could come up with is that registering your device with the online tool will allow Cisco to monitor all of your routers traffic, but hey Time Warner is already doing that so who cares since the new Anti Piracy Law passed. Also I wish it had one more USB 3.0 port, but it'll do.

Other Thoughts: This router has been great so far and has not dropped connection and even it has you can reboot it via the online tool without being near it. I would also purchase at any store that price matches, since I found it for cheap at the manufacturers site.
