    Had to replace a Dlink router that stopped working. With visions of installation issues like I had with the Dlink, I decided to order this Linksys Router. Surprisingly, the installation was straightforward and easy for my home network consisting of an Apple iMac, a Macbook Air, three PCs, and 4 printers (all wireless).
    This router is FAST. The iPhone app works as advertised. The downloaded computer app works on the iMac. The apps allow access to the router settings and makes it real easy to troubleshoot, add a guest, set priority, etc.
    All said, seems like a really nice router, well worth the price compared to other routers available.

    I have a fair sized home system which includes high speed cable, a new 20Mbps 8 lane Cable modem (Arris Motorola SB6141 White) and this wireless EA6900 router. I had looked at reviews for several weeks and it seemed like the best. After 4 months I have finally had it. With 20+ N wireless or 1GB devices (Cameras (11), Laptop (2), Server, Desktop, iPads (2), Smart Phones (2), Taglist alarming, ViewZone, Cisco Entender, 3 TV's wired and wireless, HP wired/wireless printer, 3 Linsys WiFi extenders RE1000 (2) & RE2000 - the AC1900 EA6900 is junk. It has serious overheating (design flaw) and will not EVER list the devices in full. Some listed as gone still running and sending info out of the network. I have had it choke up (No more Smart App access or local http web), reboot spontaneously (heat?) and generally hit or miss any one of these devices - meaning they just will not all list. Linksys support will spend an hour (each of several weekend calls) only to state you need level two, which will never materialize or call back at the appointment times. They will try re-treading your auto tires if they think it MIGHT work. Stay clear of this. I have had to travel to the remote site several times to find 1/2 of the things connected and running and the rest with DHCP failures or other invisible items inaccessible. I have even used a laptop cooler under it. Time to look beyond this company.

      Was a little difficult to set up on our system being a secure law enforcement agency and being able to get wireless internet but not have access to our local network but with the use of a switch and not using the WAN port it was accomplished successfully. Great product!!

                      Comments about Linksys EA6900 Smart Wi-Fi Dual Band AC1900 Router:

                      Install went much more smoothly than expected. Connection to my cable modem and to my wired computer (3pc, 2 apple) went without issues. Connection to my three wireless printers required reinstallation of the printer software in order to re-initiate the wireless connect.

                      Wireless range from the Linksys router is exceptionally good (much better than the drink router it replaces), and the speed of the connection to the internet through the cable modem (ISP: Charter) is actually faster (upload and download) than what I was experiencing with the previous drink router.

                        I have been a long time Linksys user but ever since Cisco took over Linksys I have used Dlink and I hated my Dlink Router. But When I heard Belkin bought Linksys I went out and bought 3 of these routers. This by far is the easiest router to install. So easy even someone that doesn't know anything about computer could do it. But I love the features and the WiFi speed is the best on the market. You will no go wrong with this router!!!
