    EA6900 Smart Wi-Fi Dual Band AC1900 Router is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 219.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I stream a lot of video and was looking for a router that would allow me to stream on two or three devices at once. I got the EA6900 and it does the job. My Roku boxes load and play without delay. I ran a speed test with my IPad Air and the download speed was 90mbps. My old router would have to be restarted every time we had a power outage, but the EA6900 does not need to be restarted. I live in a two story house and the router is upstairs and the signal is strong enough that no boosters are needed downstairs. Another big plus is how easy it is to sign in and make changes to the router. The reviews I read on the EA6900 said it got hot when in use, but I have not experienced this issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Device! I upgraded this from a previous Linksys router that was dropping connections due to too many wireless devices in the house. It was a cheap one and did had some age. I didn't use the setup disk, more a hands-on guy. Love the speed, new User Interface and remote access without opening ports in the firewall. Would love to see some bandwidth graphs to get of snap-shot of what devices is hogging on the traffic. 5Ghz is way faster than the 2Ghz, but range is much shorter. Note: tried connecting to both 2Ghz and 5Ghz signal. Even in short range, my phone would bounce between connections. Better to use just one or other. All in all, great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Definite Upgrade! Three things that I'm impressed with and that work well: 1) Option of two network bands of 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz. 2) The ability to observe network via app on phone and/or computer. 3) The easy, intuitive setup process Three things that I'm not impressed with: 1) The range - hardly a noticeable difference from the older replaced N router. 2) Two weeks in and had to unplug/plug router in order to get back online 3) Privacy - not sure if I just missed it but there doesn't seem to be a way to make this router less visible. My previous router could be hidden and one would have to actually type in the network name in order to find it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, but expensive considering.... 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass this on by! I've had this 3 years and it's given my fits! Monthly and weekly reboots. Tech support suggested pushing the reset button for a factory reset every so often. What a joke. It drops internet every so often. Does not agree what is connected between the "device list", "Connectivity/DHCP Reservations", and the "Troubleshooting" tabs. Refresh and reboots don't help. Try to reserve DHCP for items like printers, etc. is hit and miss. I've tried Range extenders RE1000 & RE2000 with troublesome connections. Pulled them and I'm trying a RE7000 Range Extender. It connects great and works well as long as the EA6900 is stable. 3 days and it's a reboot to reconnect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SURPRISINGLY BETTER BOUGHT A ASUS 4-Port Gigabit Wireless AC Router (RT-AC68U) AND THIS Linksys EA6900 AC1900. Based on numerous review and citations i thought the Asus would smoke the Linksys. The opposite became true. The lLinksys has far stronger signal strength and range throughout my 2 story small house and yard. This actiually shocked me... I had read the CNET reviews of both, which basically gave the highest praise and results to the Asus, and in the Linksys review (both 2013) CNET pretty mucH dismembered this Lnksys. Obviously something is wrong in the reveiw process and fairness department's there. I;m totally pleasaed witrh this Linksys.Gave away the Asus as a Christmas Gift...Jim...Fife. WA

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Bought as an open box item. Previous user must have set a new address or something. While the router worked immediately with the modem and the 2 levels were available, I couldn't access the menu. The setup procedure didn't nothing helpful in telling me what was wrong. The website the same, as well as the PDF manual. All of them seemed to run in circles in what to do--not helpful. Finally, I did a reset to factory and all went well. Wish the documentation was a bit better. But it works fine after the reset and does what I want it to do. Product--excellent. Documentation--fair to poor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Satisfied After replacing an earlier Linksys wi-fi router with the EA6900 I've enjoyed ease of set up, and a much more stable and faster home network. My 802.11AC devices download files and display web pages much faster compared to 802.11N connectivity. And, with AC connectivity, wireless range is greatly extended throughout the house and onto the backyard deck. The only problem I experienced was setting up an old HP laser printer using the router's USB port. That was, however, solved after discovering, downloading and installing the Belkin USB controller App on all PCs on my network.
