Linksys EA4500-NP SMART Dual-Band Wireless N900 Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Dual-band 3x3 wireless supports high speed up to 450+450Mbps
  • Storage Link transforms any USB storage device into a NAS
  • Smart Wi-Fi Apps, tools and mobility
  • Home cloud
  • USB and 4 Gigabit ports

Pros:

Linksys has yet to fail me on packaging, everything sat nice and tight inside the box. Looks professional and of quality.

I took off my old router and plugged this one in and then reset both router/cable box. After everything powered back on I was able to connect and configure the router to my settings. I cannot stress how easy it is to set up Linksys routers with there built in app. It's a simple 1,2,3 step process and anyone can set up this router without an issue.

Smart Wi-Fi is a must after you get to own one of these routers. Be able to control who is on your network, control what is available to the users. You can even prioritize a computer to give it maximum performance gains such as when gaming or streaming media.

The linksys ip address webpage to setup and configure your settings couldn't get any easier than this. I would highly recommend this router to anyone who wants a headache free setup and a router that gives power to the owner.

Cons:

I couldn't get a few of my USB sticks to be recognized through the USB ports in the back of this router but did manage to get one to work. After that I did have issue with trying to stream the video I had on the USB to another computer. Setting up folders is somewhat confusing in the linksys ip webpage but I did manage to configure it and it has been working flawlessly.

This was not worth a deduction!

Other Thoughts:

This router will not increase your internet speed UNLESS it is truly your router that is bottle necking your speed. (For EX, older B/G routers)

My router is about 40-50 foot away from me with a wall in between and I have yet to see signal drop or lag spikes. I do tons of gaming and uploading on youtube and have my computer prioritized for more performance from the router and so far I am liking this feature quite a bit.

This router does have two USB ports on the back, one of my favorites about that is one of them is actually a USB 3.0, that is simply icing on the cake.
