EA line of routers SUCKS! 09/15/2013
Easy setup, good packaging, comes with a pamphlet with default settings, gigabit ports, ability to turn off indicator lights (Great idea!)
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.
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.
