Wireless-AC for Faster Speed and Reliability
Upgrade your wireless home network and enjoy faster speeds than conventional Wireless-N using the AC900 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Router from Linksys. This router offers Wireless-AC technology, which delivers a faster, stronger Wi-Fi connection ideal for online HD video streaming services. With speeds up to AC900 Mbps (N300 + AC565), Wireless-AC provides gigabit Wi-Fi speeds that allow content to download faster. Wireless-AC makes it possible for you to stream shows on your HDTV while family members download music or other files—without interruption due to a slow network connection. The AC900 includes a USB 3.0 port and four gigabit ports to let you connect multiple devices, allowing you to quickly print, share, and store content across your network.

Beamforming Creates Stronger, Faster Connections
The Linksys AC900 Smart Wi-Fi router features beamforming, an innovative technology that optimizes the wireless signal strength between your connected devices and Linksys router. Beamforming enables the router to identify and connect directly with other devices, rather than simply sending out wireless signals in a general direction. The result is faster network speeds, better wireless range, and reduced interference from other devices. It also helps extend the battery life of connected devices and reduce their power consumption because data is transferred more quickly.

Manage Your Home Network Remotely with Linksys Smart Wi-Fi
With Linksys Smart Wi-Fi, you can access and control your home network from wherever you are using your smartphone, tablet, or computer. For example, you can set parental controls to restrict Internet access during certain times of the day and create unique, secure Wi-Fi passwords for your guests. You can also monitor activity on your home network, add new devices, and check upload and download speeds. In addition, Linksys Smart Wi-Fi allows you to prioritize which devices on your network receive the most bandwidth to reduce lag times and buffering when you're streaming HD media or gaming. Your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi account also gives you access to of apps that provide additional ways to control and interact with your home Wi-Fi network. Block the Bad Stuff lets you add one of three levels of protective filtering to help safeguard your wireless network. Device Monitor allows you to monitor game consoles, tablet computers, and other devices, while NetProofer lets you restrict access to certain websites.

Upgrade Your Devices to Enjoy the Full Benefits of Wireless-AC
Using Linksys's family of Wireless-AC peripherals, you can take full advantage of the improved speed and stability of Wireless-AC. Linksys Universal Media Connector lets you connect wired devices such as game consoles and smart TVs to your Wi-Fi network and stream HD or even 3D HD video content. The connector operates on the 5 GHz band, resulting in less interference and a clearer signal. Additionally, the Linksys Wireless-AC Mini-USB Adapter (AE6000) makes it simple to upgrade your laptop or desktop computer to Wireless-AC technology.

2 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup but weak signal

Pros: It was easy to set up. It also has an USB port to share storage. Works well near the router within the short range it provides.

Cons: The signal strength is very weak. The connection fails from a room about 20 feet away with only another room with drywall in between. The connection works fine as the device is moved closer to the router. There is no adjustment for signal strength. My previous linksys router provided signal across two floors but this router doesn't work even on the same floor. I will try to look for solutions and update my review if I find one. Wireless is pretty much useless if you have to be within 20ft of the router. I am on the latest firmware of the router and the wireless device but that did not help

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Sanjiv,

Thank you for providing us a product review. To enhance the router's capability to broadcast the Wi-Fi signal, we recommend that you set a permanent wireless channel. Access the setup page by following the instructions in this link: http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=143717. For the 2.4 GHz network, test channels 1, 3, 6, and 11. For the 5 GHz network, test 157 and 161. Updating the firmware of the router will also help. Visit this link for the full tutorial: http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=140365

Should you need further assistance, you may email us your complete contact details, location, computer OS, and the link to this review at LinksysCares@linksys.com so our team may provide more solutions the soonest.

Regards,

Linksys Support

3 out of 5 eggsFor the novice user and simple application

Pros: The web enhance configuration experience will be good for some applications and people. Size is nice and the signal was good for a WAP without an external antenna.

Cons: No way to bypass the over simplified experience. I was planning to use it as a cascaded router behind the one supplied by my ISP but after a weekend trying to get it set up satisfactorily I gave up and sent it back. I will look for a more straight forward router for my application.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, Darryl B.,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the EA6200 router. Your take about its functionality is what we need in the process of improving our product. Definitely, this will be shared to the team. However, with regard to your challenge on how to cascade a Linksys router to another router, you may check this link as your check list: http://www.linksys.com/ca/support-article?articleNum=132275 .

For any Linksys challenge you can send us an email at LinksysCares@linksys.com, make sure to include your contact details (full name, working phone number, and location) and the link to this post.

We hope to hear from you soon.

Regards,

1 out of 5 eggsWorked 2 months then began degrading

Pros: Easy setup for novices. Runs cooler than my other routers.

Cons: After 5 or 6 weeks of just OK performance with just marginal signal quality in a 1700 sqf. single home with signal passing thru 1 sheetrock wall, the unit started dropping connections on the wi-fi side, then the speeds dropped dramatically. Only fix was constant reboots. LAN side works reliably so long as the wi-fi isn't running or it will affect LAN speeds as well. Look elsewhere as this one is a tragic waste of money.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Range and constant drops

Pros: Cheap and decent 5 GHz signals when in the same room as the router

Cons: Bad Range and constant 2.4 GHz drops and low Download speeds when it is working

Other Thoughts: I bought this Router to replace an old 2.4GHz only Netgear Router.Now I get constant drops and very bad range (You basically have to be in the same room or next room over). I tried to give it a chance and tried it out for a few months but there was no change and by then Neweggs 30 day return policy was up. So I went back to my old Netgear router after my family complained about how bad the wifi was and Im stuck with this useless paperweight

3 out of 5 eggsCould have been amazing.

Pros: - 128MB flash.
- 128MB RAM.
- USB.
- GbE ports.
- AC1200 at an affordable price.
- Serial headers included!

Cons: - It's an ARM CPU (vs. the MIPS in the previous routers), which is not a con by
itself. However, the CPU die size is a mere 5mm x 5mm (vs. ~25mm x 25mm
die size of the previous CPU SOCs), and that causes issues because of heat
not being dissipated to the heat-sink fast enough.
Hence all the issues with this router.
- The two WiFi chips run hot too, and have only the thin Faraday cage for
heat dissipation (!).
The CPU heatsink is big enough, but the WiFi chips should have had
heatsinks too. This is a flawed design of too many routers.

Other Thoughts: I had to cut the Faraday cages in half in order to add heatsinks to the two WiFi
chips. This was the easy part.
I bricked the router while mucking around with ddwrt, which is not supported yet.
This will be the hard part, since I have erased the nvram partition.
Warning to all: Do NOT erase the nvram partition of this family of routers.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor range

Pros: Specs look good on paper but this thing is JUNK. Range is horrible. I got an Asus RT-N53 for under $20 that blows this thing to smitereens. If i am right next to this router it is relatively fast, but moving more than 5 feet away and the speed drops dramatically. Linksys used to be good, but not anymore.

Cons: Everything. Literally the worst firmware i have ever used and no 3rd party firmware support.

2 out of 5 eggsNot great, not great at all

Pros: For the few hours at a time where it works, it will work quite well. The speeds on both 2.4 and 5 ghz bands were just fine however...

Cons: The router cannot maintain said speeds for any appreciable amount of time. Neither band would remain stable for multiple devices (HTC One, logitech revue, toshiba laptops etc), all devices using wireless n. A reset of the router would correct this for a very short amount of time, then it would revert to being extremely unstable (multiple disconnects, varying speeds at times dipping to .7 mbps).

Getting the newest firmware update didn't help in with any of these issues.

Other Thoughts: The range isn't stellar either, but I knew that going into it. I ended up sending it back, and thankfully newegg refunded me so I could just spend a bit more and buy the archer that I should have went with in the first place. Don't buy this router to save a little cash, it isn't worth the hassle.

1 out of 5 eggsPlease Do not purchase

Pros: none

Cons: Very bad range
Connection drops very frequently
never have trusted connectivity or speed
Do not attempt to do "work from home" when had this router connected
Customer service from linksys is very very bad and not helpful at all
Tech support from linksys does not have correct information, when i bought new from new egg, they say i may have refurbished product so i need to return to new-egg and buy directly from linksys was the recommendation for double the price.

Other Thoughts: please buy any other router except this one. do not compromise with low price(though this is not very low price)

2 out of 5 eggsStarted Good, deteriorated quickly

Pros: Was very fast and had decent range originally.

Cons: Quickly degraded in performance and range. Starting out, this router blanketed my whole house with great speeds. After about a year, the speeds crept lower and lower and the range diminished such that I could only connect at 5mbps in a room just 15' away with no metal obstructions. Had the same issue with two previous 'high end' routers from the same manufacturer. Will never buy a linksys product again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Great router, plugged in, configured with ease, and had no issues with Xbox One, PS4, or any other devices.
All NAT types show open, get this if you play games online.

Cons: None so far, still up and running.
