Linksys EA6500 V2 AC1750 Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit, Smart Wi-Fi App Enabled, Open Source supported
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice web interface, if you have no technical knowledge

Cons: Unreliable, unreliable, unreliable.
Disaster of a product. Poorly engineered (heat dissipation) and inadequate QA on firmware.
Speeds will degrade shortly after bringing it online, eventually losing connection altogether. Well documented on CISCO forums now, but no response/action from the company. You'll get the whole "have you tried resetting?" "Try the factory defaults"... etc.
Nothing useful from their "tech support". It is layered with folks who have no technical knowledge, just a handbook of comfort phrases like "let me assure you we will work to resolve this issue". Then back to "have you tried powering off....?" AAArgh.

Other Thoughts: I am genuinely surprised Cisco senior management has not briefed the exec level that they may have to recall... Just check their support forums: SEVEN PAGES of UNRESOLVED COMPLAINTS ON THE EA6500 in the PAST MONTH ALONE! That is an eye-watering, cataclysmic fail.
Think its just a few dolts who strangled their own bandwidth accidentally with mis-set prioritization? EEEEEEEH! Wrong. For a real confirmation, check CISCO's BBB rating now.... C+ and headed downhill fast.
