Linksys EA9500 overview

  • 1Description

The EA9500 Tri-Band Wireless-AC5400 MAX-STREAM MU-MIMO Gigabit Router from Linksys features eight antennas and eight Gigabit Ethernet ports. The eight antennas support a single 2.4 GHz frequency band and two 5 GHz frequency bands for a total wireless bandwidth of up to 5400 Mbps. The enhanced data transfer rates are backed up by the router's 1.4 GHz dual core processor capable of handling multiple data paths simultaneously. In addition to network connectivity, the EA9500 features a single USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port for connecting USB devices such as USB hard drives and printers to the network.

The EA9500 supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking standards ensuring nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device can access the network. Once configured, wireless devices can take advantage of MU-MIMO (multiple user-multiple input multiple output) technology which gives each connected device its own data path resulting in a stronger, more reliable signal. This allows for smooth streaming of HD video content, lag free online gaming, and enhanced overall data transfer rates for a more reliable wireless connection.

Tri-Band Wi-Fi Speeds up to 5.3 Gbps
The MAX-STREAM AC5400 router offers three independent Wi-Fi bands that deliver fast combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps. Tri-Band technology delivers up to double the Wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. High-bandwidth applications like videoconferencing and movie streaming are ideal for the two high-speed 5 GHz bands, while lower-bandwidth devices like older wireless-N and -G computers can utilize the 2.4 GHz band.
Powerful Processor
If you're working in your home office, you can quickly download large files thanks to the MAX-STREAM's 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, which delivers the performance necessary for seamless videoconferencing and fast file transfers. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once, thus delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.
Connect Wired Devices with USB and Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability, with speeds up to 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections, including one fast USB 3.0 port, are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.
Advanced Security Features
With the MAX-STREAM AC5400 Router, your work files, data, and home network information are safely connected with WPA/WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall.
High-Performance Antennas
The router features eight adjustable external antennas, which can be positioned for optimal performance. They provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring complete Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. Unlike the two or three data streams found on other routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams for stronger, faster performance.
Beamforming Technology
Play video games, listen to music, check email, shop, stream movies, and more--without having to worry about signal drop-off. Beamforming technology directs Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices. This focused direction provides increased signal strength and coverage.
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi
Linksys Smart Wi-Fi lets you access your network anytime, anywhere. Using your browser or the Smart Wi-Fi mobile app, you can:
• Prioritize devices or websites for video streaming and online gaming
• Control inappropriate or distracting content
• Monitor network activity and speed
• Turn Wi-Fi access on or off for any connected device
• Create a separate, password-protected guest network

    Linksys EA9500 reviews

    EA9500 Tri-Band Wireless-AC5400 MAX-STREAM MU-MIMO Gigabit Router is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 361.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still can't handle network customization Linksys has always loved the 192.168.1.0 class C private network. Attempt to break that mold and use 172.16.0.0 or 10.0.0.0, and you'll run into issue after issue. I can't pick my own internal network, register DHCP leases, and am barely able to manage my router properly (with latest firmware). Way to swing for the fences Linksys... A big selling point for this is that the app is supposed to make it very easy to manage. ... With the issues of creating your own network, the app only works half of the time (but that's for an app review). With the price tag that comes with this, I expected more, but have been let down by Linksys once again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Linksys EA9500 High end router is Garbage!!!! I really tried to give this router a chance but after two months of intermittent routing issues between between wireless channels I decided to return it. For a high end router at this price point, it has no real capabilities beyond providing wireless coverage and of course 8 LAN ports. No openvpn support, no jumbo frame support (which killed my NAS backups), no way to configure netbios name, etc. there was just nothing special about it. I will admit that the wireless coverage it provided was outstanding but that's about the only good thing I can say about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed, no more resetting our router every few weeks I have 45 year old house. My wifi is in the basement, which looks like the underside of a submarine with all the piping and electrical cables, etc I had an Apple Airport extreme (AC) and it worked okay. My wife works from home and was constantly complaining about spotty Wifi reception. I installed the Linksys router fairly quickly + plus there wif extender and my problems disappeared! Instruction were fairly straightforward. Not much harder than the Apple - which is their major draw. Second floor TV now gets wifi (AC) now gets 180mbs. Also LOVE the app. Able to prioritize traffic. Even stop a device if I want to. Had it for three weeks and hope it keeps working this well..

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest Piece of Junk EVER!!! This router is absolutely terrible... the max speed I get over my wifi is about 5MB/s on the 2.4GHZ and 10 - 20MB/s on the 5GHZ, if smart switch is enabled it switches my devices ever couple seconds making them disconnect, so I have to disable one of the 2, 5GHZ bands. I will be taking this Piece of junk back and going back to my Asus AC5300 which was able of sending the full 300MB/s I'm paying for over my WIFI!!! Without any problems... I can't Stay connected to the WIFI with the Linksys router for more then 5 min at a time with any of my devices... Just through writing this Review it reconnected on my laptop Twice...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unable to Keep Wireless Connection I've been a fan of Linksys products for many year. I purchased this router a little over a week past and I've been nothing but frustrated with the connection. As quickly as I connect via wireless, I also lose connection. The router did an update of the firmware when I did the setup so unsure if it is tied to that. I'm seriously considering returning to the place or purchase. I put my WRT1900 back to work and it's working just fine. I was hoping for better coverage with the new router as I have a dead spot in my home. I would still recommend Linksys products to those who ask, just not this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best router on the market This is the best router I have used thus far in my life. Linksys goes above and beyond and sent me a NEX GEN AC usb wifi adapter after I received my router. This is amazing customer service. Now the router... My speeds are through the roof. I expected that. The range, however, is ridiculous... RIDICULOUSLY FAR!!! (It's a good thing.) I have a two-story 4000 sq ft home. It covers that without any problems. But there's more, I can get a strong signal on 80% of my half acre backyard. I walked all the way out to the slopes of the hill and still had 2-3 bars of wifi signal. THIS IS ALL WITHOUT A RANGE EXTENDER. Amazing product. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Router For My Need. I struggled trying to find the right Router strong enough to fulfill my need and demand, but not anymore. The AC5400 is strong enough for my Netflix 4K account to be running in the background while my all old PC is downloading movies and I'm doing school work in my Mac computer all of this without slowing the games I'm playing at the same time in my 2 iPhones. It's also strong enough to reach every corner of my 3 bedroom apartment without the need for me to set it up on the middle of the apartments. I still do recommend to set up your router in the middle of your home but if that not possible for you, just know that this router is strong enough to handle huge places.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't know how they do it!! I have had this installed for about a week and was immediately impressed as to the quality and performance of this device. Kudos to all who dream in this technological universe. The BEST just got Better. While we have radio internet with all its limitations, the MAX-STREAM AC 5400 delivers faster speed and better TV quality picture than its predecessor AC1900. The setup was easy and while my speed is limited by the internet, I consider the improvement delivered in pic quality and speed increase worth the investment in this device. All aside LINKSYS has done it again and better! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
