Customer Reviews

You might want to look around some more - this router, like my last Linksys router, will likely have a short life span.Mine worked fine for about a year, then started acting screwy. The 2.4GHz network started dropping signal - one minute it would be at 100% power, the next at 0%. It was jumping between 0% and 100% signal strength so often that none of my devices that previously connected on that frequency could connect anymore. I didn't jump right on the problem because 1) I was preparing for a vacation, 2) the 5GHz network was still working OK, and 3) at first, I didn't think it was a hardware problem; I suspected interference, possibly from some new toy one of the neighbors may have received for Christmas.. Well, it turned out to be a hardware problem, at least I'd lay money on it after spending a considerable amount of time troubleshooting and chatting with Linksys tech support. By the time I got back from vacation and did some troubleshooting (believe it or not, I do know how; I retired with over 30 years experience in this field), I'd had the router for 13 months. The warranty is for 12 months. Someone please kick me where it hurts (which would be just about anywhere anymore)! But I'm probably going to do that to myself, because due to a lack of time, I intend to buy a refurbished unit just like it. Hopefully, I can just load it with the latest saved config from my old one and won't have to go through the hassle of setting up another one. If you are satisfied with default everything, then you can set up one of these rather quickly. However, I like to set up mine for maximum security and the maximum speed I can get, even with the added security. If you go that route, it can take some time to set up one of these. If I had the time, I'd certainly try another product. This is my 3rd Linksys router; previously I used a G router, followed by an N. The G still works and I keep it as an emergency backup. The N router stopped working completely (it would power on, but that was about all it would do) after about the same length of time as it took this EA6500 to go wacky. I'm being generous in giving this thing 3 stars, but I have to admit that it worked pretty good when it was working properly. By the way, in case you are wondering if my routers may be victims of power surges, I have a whole house surge suppressor installed at my breaker box and even though it is supposedly not needed, I also plug my computer equipment into a BlackBox line shaper / surge protector. My routers, like my other equipment, have continually been supplied with cleaner power than 99% of others in use (unless I greatly misjudge how many people there are who go this far towards ensuring clean power). 3Major DisappointmentFor many years I have maintained a home network with a Linksys router at the base. I have always been very happy with the quality and performance that I have received from Linksys and consequently have stayed with Linksys routers the three times I have upgraded. Now that Linksys is part of the Cisco family my expectations for my latest upgrade to the EA6500 were that much higher. But sadly it has been a huge disappointment as the quality of the product fell way short of expectations. When the router works, the performance is great. In our family we often have multiple games and multiple movies streaming simultaneously, and the performance is outstanding. The problem is that two or three times a week the router hangs and has to be rebooted; which shouldn't happen two or three times a year.In addition, I have three teenage kids and want to control their internet usage. One of the features that attracted me to the EA6500 was the "Linksys Smart Wi-Fi", which allows you to limit internet access to each devise based on its mac address. When it works properly, I can restrict internet access to my kids devises late night and during study times. The problem is that the Smart Wi-Fi software is buggy, and routinely groups my devise together as though they are multiple mac addresses for a single device. When this happens I can't control internet to anything.Based on my past experience with Linksys and the Linksys/Cisco brand, I expected much higher quality and can't believe that they released a product with so many critical defects. 1A lot of upside but one big downside!The AC1750 is a good entry 802.11AC router with dual band (2.4 & 5 GHZ) support. As I looked at buying this there were a few things that were most important to me. Range, speed, setup ease and dual band performance. So, I'll try to cover each in the review.Range - I have the router setup on the top shelf on the first floor of my home which is about 3300q ft. I receive the 2.4 GHZ signal throughout the house (3 levels) and well into the back and front yards. That's the good part and better than expected/needed. Unfortunately the 5 Ghz range is not so good. I can receive the signal as long as I remain in the center of the house but wander out of the center and the signal drops off quickly. Outside of the house, no 5Ghz signal. I have to say I expected it to cover at least the entire first floor and much of the second. I'd give it 2 stars on range only because the 2.4 range is better than my old router.Speed - When you can get a 5Ghz signal it rocks. I just did a speed test and had 61M down and 12M upload on wifi. On 2.4 it was 48M download and 10M up. Really good considering my old router was at 32 and 9. Quite a speed boost. theoretical 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 1300 Mbps at 5 GHz are stated to be achievable through the routers 5 antennas. But theoretical and real life are far different as you can see. Given the real life boost I experienced, it's 5 stars for speed.Set-up- It comes with a CD that will walk you through setup. When I say walk I mean crawl. My 70 year-old mom could follow this one with only 1 or 2 phone calls to me. So, for me, a bit tedious but for most beginners great. The entire setup process took exactly two minutes from connecting the router to my DSL modem to having a Macbook Pro connected to the SSID. Few consumer routers this powerful, make setup so easy. One feature that sets the AC1750 apart is the easy setup and flexible management capabilities. The cloud as management console raises the bar for router management and that capability is great. Setup is definitely 5 stars.Dual band performance -A big positive about this router is that you can set the 5ghz network to broadcast only 11.ac. The speeds are much faster on the 5ghz space and 11.ac is the fastest of the available technologies so you can dedicate a network and never have it step down to a slower speed. I assume that's why the 5ghz speed was much better. in the speed test The downside is that slower N and lower devices will only connect to 2.4ghz. But I felt the speed was worth the trade-off. Of course, you can set it up differently.To wrap it up, 5 stars for everything except 5ghz range. Understand that 5ghz will never travel as far as 2.4 but it should reach more than 25 - 30 feet from the router. So, overall 4-stars.I hope you find this helpful! 4Randomly Restricts Bandwidth on its OwnI have this on my desk. And it sounds like there is a disk drive writing inside it when I'm loading a web page or playing online games. The range is good, though I'm only in a 700 SQ Foot apartment. Ports work great as well.** Update 09-17-16 **Every month I HAVE to do a factory reset on the router.The issue: The bandwidth is somehow being restricted. I pull 140Mbps on fast and speedtest off a fresh factory reset. After a few weeks to a month it suddenly will only pull 50-60 Mbps. Now, the only things I actually adjust in the router settings are prioritization, names for wireless networks, and passwords. I don't mess with anything else and it randomly reverts to constricting my bandwidth.Today did a speedtest: 51mbps download. Factory Reset. Speedtest: 140Mbps. It makes no sense, the firmware is up to date. 2Insecure default setupDefault is insecureNot secure by default. It's been a while since I set it up, but I think it went something like this:Default is to connect to Linksys, and give them your password so you can access your router from anywhere through them. I don't recommend you do it this way. What if someone hacks into Linksys and gets your password? What if you mess up on your router settings, or it can't access the internet for whatever reason to verify your password? You won't be able to log in and fix/change it's settings. So when you get the router don't hook it up to the internet at all. hook it up to your computer and change how it's setup from there. It's default local IP is 192.168.1.1. Don't hook it up to your modem, or the internet until it's set up how you like, so you can access it locally without going through the Linksys website. You may have to do a 'reset' button reset if you mess up on this.Notes:You can set up OpenDNS family shield on it.You can backup it's settings. 192.168.1.1 (or whatever your router's LAN IP is set to) -> Troubleshooting -> Diagnostics -> Router Confutation -> Backup-- I'm stopping before I turn this review into a how to --Cons/issues:IPv6 works on this(wired/WiFi), however when I took it to AT&T household IPv6 over WiFi didn't work, however IPv6 over ethernet still worked. (note: vast majority of internet is still at IPv4 anyway)MAC filtering devices can't be namedmust enable javascript to view configuration pages (, and one goes to the Linksys website)annoying animation on configuration pageswhen turned back on, MAC filtering defaults to back to 'deny' instead of back to what it was before [aka turn it off for a bit, then turn it back on, then only those you don't want accessing the network can access network.]For somethings, If you mess up on the internet side of connection settings, you can't access the router settings to fix it, even though you should still be able to access the router locally with the messed up settings. (I forgot what this was that did this)guest access is not encryptedYou can't turn off ad on top right of router settingsExternal storage is sent non-encrypted onlyCan't use the USB on the hub for printing in LinuxAccessing the router settings via https doesn't work even though it's checked, or doesn't work anymore (did it work at some point?)-Side notes:maximum password length is one character less than it really should be. :)set up the router at nnn.nnn.nnn.1 and the DHCP server at a start up IP of nnn.nnn.nnn.2 so you can have 253 devices instead of 50 3The worst router I've ever owned, even when it was working (which was rare)Stay away from this router.I've had numerous routers for homes and offices, but this one is by far the worst. The first one, was dead out of the box. The second one seemed to work, and I thought it was just me doing something wrong with it's weird cloud setup... nope, the second one was defective too. The third one lasted past Amazon's return period so I had to call Cisco for a return. That was a total nightmare. The person on the phone was a complete idiot who knew nothing about any technology at all, and couldn't for a second go off script to listen to me explain that the problem couldn't be that our internet connection was down from our provider, because I was speaking to him on a VoIP phone. I eventually gave up and called back with a trick I learned for dealing with customer support, when they ask you to plug it in and report back on what lights are on, tell them no lights come on at all. Done, end of conversation, get your RMA.Unfortunately, swapping this router out, even for free under warranty isn't worth the cost. The new one, yet again, didn't work.This isn't something that I was doing wrong. These routers were all (except the first that was dead on arrival) able to be configured and worked properly with the unfortunate defect of intermittent crashing. I tried them in different locations, but ended up consistently swapping them out with other Cisco/Linksys routers.This model is just a nightmare, regardless of firmware revisions. 1Don't buy if you want parental controlsI purchased this router years ago when it was new to market. At that time, I was a Linksys fan and considered Linksys top of line. I'll give this router 2 stars because it has performed basic routing functions well, but problems arise when you try to use the parental controls. For some unknown reason, Linksys introduced an additional naming association with each device/client, on top of the IP and MAC addressing. They then tied this additional/unnecessary naming scheme to the parental control filtering, so rather than filter based on MAC or IP, you must filter thru this additional 3rd (linksys introduced) name. If it worked, it would be fine, but annoying as you'd still have to deal with all the additional device IDs/names. Problem is... it doesn't work... the router is unable to keep track of which name goes with which MAC goes with which IP, to the point that a single name (ex: HP-Laptop) becomes associated with 10 or more different MACs - MACs that have nothing to do with the device they are associated with. So then when you go to use parental controls and apply a filter to say... (ex: HP-Laptop), the filter gets applied to all of the associated MACs, so you end up applying a filter to 10 other devices that you did not want to filter, simply because the router cannot keep track of it's own unnecessary naming scheme. You would think Linksys would have fixed this soon after it was a known issue. Nope... This has been a well known issue (noted in their own forums) for well over 2 years and there is no fix for it. Parental controls do not work in this router. As such, I will soon be purchasing a different router and this will likely be my last purchase of a Linksys product. 2Excellent router with many advanced featuresJust got the router (Linksys 1750, EA6500, V2)These are my first impressions. Very easy installation - as easy I have seen. Took maybe 1 minute to go through the setup. Connect the router, navigate to lynksissmartwifi.com (local to the router) and follow the prompts.The speed in the same room for the 2.4Ghz channel was 40-50MB/s. Now is 55-60MB/s. Interestingly the speed did not increase on the second floor - it is still 25MB/s to 30MB/s. This is the reason I purchased it in the first place but did not seem to increase the speed there. We will see if the speed increases as I explained below for the my testing in the room where the router is (this is why I give it 4 stars for now and not 5).Another interesting fact is that first time the speed test was very disappointing - about 10MB/s (lower then with my old router which was showing about 40MB/s). However with a few more tries it kept increasing until reaching the max of 55-60MB/s. So currently the speed is 10-15 BM/s higher then with the old router. Not sure if this is by design.Testing the speed in the same room at the 5GHz channel - it started at 50-60MB/s the first test but kept increasing and is now reading 130MB/s.Not sure if this is from router or my internet provider (have not tested direct connection with the modem).So this is double than my previous router (that did not have 5GHz channel).The router tends to run warm but not hot (for now). I will be watching it being aware of what other users said about overheating.Couple other interesting facts - the Lynksis testing software tends to show higher numbers than when I use Speedtest.net. Not sure why.Overall very good experience so far. Will update as I continue using it.By the way nothing on the box says V2. But it listed the USB3 port which I think is the difference between V1 and V2. So I am pretty sure I got V2.Day 2Ok so did some more speed testing today and amazingly my 2.4 Ghz channel now has gone to 75-90MB/s (from the 50-60MB/s it was showing on day one). The 5Ghz channel still reads ~130MB/s. Not sure if these are daily variations from my ISP, Xfinity, but this is pretty amazing, compare to the maximum of 40MB/s I was getting with my old Belkin Surf N300 router (even in the same room with the router).The router continues to run warm but not hot.My iPad 2 is the only device I have still stack at 20-25MB/s (but it may be limitation of the iPad design).I am upgrading my review to 5 stars.Update about 5 days later.The router continues to run very well. However checking the temperature shows that the bottom is pretty hot. Seems the metal plates on the top and bottom are heat sinks. The one on the bottom is much hotter than the one on the top and a little too hot for comfort.Before getting a laptop cooling pad to put under the router I decided to just elevate it on a stand I have around (about 2 inches above the ground) that allows the free flow of air below the router. That seems to help to decrease the temperature. Right now even the bottom feels warm but not too hot. Will wait and see if this keeps it at comfortable temperature (although I am not sure what the right temperature needs to be) 5Very Stable Performance, Outstanding Parental ControlsI've been running the EA6500 for a couple years in my home with very few issues. This is a very stable WiFi router, connections have been great, I rarely see problems involving disconnects or reboots. Range could be better, my EA6500 sits on the first floor with most of the users on the second floor. Our connection status ranges from "good" to "very good" depending on where we are in the house. I had a IP camera on the second floor that had issues connecting on the 2.4GHz band so I moved it elsewhere.The EA6500 has an very intuitive administrative interface, set-up and maintenance is a breeze. The absolute best feature of this router (and the primary reason I bought) is the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Parental controls. If you need a router that you can set schedule/time limits for your children's devices this is the way to go. It has a simple to use scheduling feature that lets you set a time schedule per device. I have schedules set for each of my kids that limits use of the wi-fi to specific times after school and before bed and during the weekend. I don't use the site blocking feature on this router often but as far as I know it works ok. I rely on OpenDNS for content filtering by placing the OpenDNS servers in my DHCP configuration. That's not ideal as older kids figure out how to bypass that pretty quick. I'd like to see Linksys Smart WiFi integrated with OpenDNS the same way Netgear does with their Genie app. I tried the Netgear recently but returned it because the parental controls were awful.Bottom line: Stable performance, excellent parental control features and time based access list per device and simplicity of operation. 4Never buy Linksys-Terrible customer service, EA6500 poor productI have had a number of Linksys routers in the past. The last 2 I bought were top-of-the-line dual-band routers. The first was fairly reliable, but had a weak signal throughout the house. So I bought an EA6500. It had many (too many?) bells and whistles, most of which I didn't need or use; however, it had a decent signal and worked fine for about 5 months. At that time it would frequently lose internet connection (tho internet signal from Time-Warner modem was fine. When I contacted Linksys about the problem while under warranty, they said that it was a software problem, and my free software assistance had run out so I would have to pay about $50 to talk to someone. If I didn't talk to a tech, then I couldn't get a return order for my warranty (catch 22?) Finally, I escalated, and they let me talk to a tech free. He agreed unit was bad. They sent me a refurbished unit that had the same problem my defective unit had. (I assume that since it was intermittent, they just boxed up one someone else had returned for the same reason.) After going through the identical hassle about them wanting to charge me to talk to a tech again, they finally agreed to send me a NEW unit. They also agreed to pay for shipping this time. (I paid the first time.) Well, they sent me a shipping label, I applied it, shipped the defective unit back; and 4 weeks later never heard from them.The only happy part of this story is that when the Linksys first went bad, I ordered a $50 highly rated DLink router that arrived in 2 days and has been working perfectly every since. I disconnected it only long enough to find out the second Linksys didn't work.Though I've never received the replacement Linksys they said they would send, the EA6500 is such a poor unit, that I probably would just continue to use the cheap DLink, or will buy a top-end DLink. I am used to the wonderful next day service I get from Dell computers. The opposite end of the customer service spectrum is Linksys. I keep buying Dells. Do you think I will ever buy another Linksys after this experience? 1
