Linksys EA3500 App Enabled N750 Dual-Band Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB
  • IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Up to 300+450Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros:

Simultaneous Dual band, supports both 2.4, 5.8GHz bands.
Sleek looking, with integrated antennae (good WAF).
Guest network with web-login (2.4GHz only)
Easily access router my typing ( myrouter.local ) in web browser address bar
Seems stable (works without reboot for a few weeks) with a network of 10 devices including laptops, desktops, smartphones, printers, etc.
Gigabit LAN.

Cons:

One of the most difficult routers for the novice users to set up.
The recommended way to setup with DVD is obsolete (None of my home computers have spinning disks / drives anymore)
Menu is extremely complicated (Dyndns under security menu??)
LAN IP addresses are 10.211.XXX.XXX (Seriously??)
Sometimes accessing the router through web interface throws a "Bad Gateway error", and takes a good one minute to load
Changing DNS servers is tucked away under local network menu instead of WAN menu.
Changing some settings (like something under QoS menu or changing DNS server for e.g. )will crash the router and it will need a hard reboot.
QoS implementation is a mess (reduced the speed of my 20MBps Internet to 12Mbps using both router's speedtest app as well as on my laptop)
This router does not yet have a killer app/feature that distinguishes it from the rest of the simultaneous dual band products.

Other Thoughts:

This router seems like a work in progress, with Linksys (Now Belkin) moving towards cloud accessibility of its routers and have started selling additional router apps.
Most of the important settings are tucked away under random menu names.
QoS needs a lot of polishing and is still beta IMO.
Sometimes the 5.8GHz wireless SSID shows up as MarvellAP8X.

Hopefully Linksys will fix these pending issues soon with a well tested firmware or allow open-source firmwares.
