Rated 1 out of 5 by from All newer linksys products have been depressing! The ea6500 isnt any better than the ea6300 i had, the parental controls for specific time do not work still!! Im back to my old ea3500 which so far is still the best!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I agree with Rebekah I have the same issues with mine. When it runs, it runs well on the 5GHz band. I was getting 1.3 Gbps with my AC1750 wireless network card in my desktop. Although, even after one of many router resets, I could watch the signal strength diminish over time with this router until there was no connectivity available at all on the 5GHz. At any rate, I would lose the 5GHz band at least once per day (not counting when I had to reset it for the signal loss on the 2.4GHz band). On the 2.4GHz band, the signal was even more sporadic. The signal strength would diminish and drop altogether many times a day. At first, I thought there might be some form of interference messing with this router. To test this, I swapped this router out with my old low-cost wireless-N router (also operating on the 2.4 and 5GHz bands) and the N-router works without issue. As a matter of fact, I've been running for 2 months with my N-router and have not had to reset it once. I have about twenty years of experience running routers in a home and professional environment and haven't seen anything like this issue in any wireless device so I hope a firmware fix can take care of it. For now, I have to say it's the most unreliable wireless device I've personally used to date. The lack of reliability is entirely the reason for my one-star review. I'm keeping it hoping a firmware update will fix the connection drops. I trust that Linksys will make this right.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Range I have been using this router for several weeks. I am disappointed in it's range. I have it in my study where it works fine. If I go into the next room I loose signal. If itry to connect there it tells me "Cannot connect to this network." Much poorer signal than a five year old router that I replaced thinking it would be an upgrade.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loses connectivity I have always been a brand loyal person because of the reliability of a Linksys router. I bought this unit a couple of years ago because the last one was out of date but still worked great. After 3 years with this one it is now losing connectivity with everything including the internet. I connect my laptop straight to it and can't even get into the router itself. It would usually let me in after I unplugged it for a couple of hours but as of two days ago it won't even do that. Reset button doesn't work either. Finally got online through the cable modem to do some research and it was suggested that I place it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Low and behold it worked....until this morning. Again nothing is connected to it and I can't get into the router to do a firmware update. Grrrr. Back to finding a new router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to use features Bought the router a few months ago to replace an aging cranky one that we finally had enough with! Didn't quite know what to expect with this brand bit it has proven to be one of a kind. Honestly don't think we have had to reboot since hooking it up! The old one was horrible and had to be reboot 3 times a day or more! Absolutely love all the features and the smart phone app is a breeze to navigate. Definitely recommend to just about anyone for any use out there!! They have earned my business for life that's for sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Installation Quagmire I have installed a variety of computer and electronic equipment but my experience with this unit has me on the verge of returning it and I don't think I should have to pay an additional charge to have it done for me. Kenneth Dyrud

Rated 2 out of 5 by from When it works it's great. Have had it for a month and love the speed! However it insists on having two networks - one for each band. That wouldn't be a problem normally but it has dead spots throughout our house that we've never had before, which causes our devices to lose the network and constantly have to switch to the other. Very annoying and time wasting.
