This tri-band router supports a single 2.4 GHz frequency and dual 5 GHz frequencies offering enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity, and with built-in MU-MIMO or multiple user, multiple-input and multiple-output technology the EA8300 router provides four separate data streams to your wireless devices.

    Linksys EA8300 reviews

    EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 MU-MIMO Smart Wi-Fi Router is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream AC2200 Tri-Band Router I got this router 2 days ago and I could not wait to set it up and see if it lived up to the speeds it promised. I was not disappointed. This is the fastest router I have ever owned. We have 2 ROKUS, 2 cell phones, 2 laptops, and a smart TV connected to the wireless side and a desktop computer that is hard wired to the router. I was very impressed with the download speeds and the streaming we were able to do with absolutely no buffering. Linksys has delivered the router I have been looking for at a price that is very affordable for so much speed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speed I received this router from Belkin-Linksys and want to share the improvements I experienced relative to the Linksys router I had been using. In the part of my home farthest from the router the signal level improved from -64 to -56 dBm. My download speeds which ranged from 11 to 27 Mbps depending on proximity to the router are now in the mid 80's throughout my house. I had no issues setting up and connecting the router to the internet.. The Linksys Smart WiFi web pages have a nice graphical interface. for example I can view a network map showing all of the devices connected to my network. The LED's on the router for WPS and internet or WAN connections make it easy to identify network issues. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The solution for streaming in our home. I got this router today and had it hooked up to replace my old router in about 15 minutes. Set up is a breeze, what took the most time was resetting all our device auto sign on for wifi. First thing I noticed was increased speed at the desktop, we noticed the same thing with all our laptops. Now the big benefit was when I got the TV sign in updated and checked video streaming. This had been a major disappointment in the past but with this router, I had no delays or buffering and later when I was streaming a movie in the office, I had my husband check to see if I was creating any issues for him with his laptop. It was great for both of us unlike the old system where I had to stop streaming if he wanted to download something or work on his laptop. I couldn't be happier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tri-band ac2200 router I found the router very usefull. All features on router where pretty straight forward . The average would likely have no problem setting it up. Only problem I could see is to name each wireless network differently,if not, will cause conflicts? Other than that it was a great router [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tri-Band Performance with Smart Connect My favorite router from years ago was the ubiquitous Linksys WRT54G with the familiar blue and black colors.The main reason was that it just worked. Plug it in and you were connected to the outside world. That's how I felt when hooking this EA8300 up for the first time. After plugging it in and attaching all the wires, I ran through the final setup through the browser and it just started working. So simple to set up security and check on the the auto setup on the three bands. Linksys calls it "Smart Connect Band Steering" and devices are placed on the best band with the best performance. There is one 2.4 band and two of the 5.0 bands and devices are organized with others of similar speeds. That way a slow device won't slow down faster devices. It was interesting to look at the device map and see how they were spread among the three bands. There were 20 devices connected both wired and wirelessly and most of them enjoyed a speed increase because of the new arrangement. My cell phone had its speed tripled from just the router change. This ended up being my favorite feature. The other need we had was for a bit more range in the house. Many houses have their router stuck along an outside wall on the main floor, sometimes in a corner, because that's where the cable comes in. Unfortunately for me, I need to connect at the opposite end of the house on the second floor. Fortunately for me the EA8300 connected with a bit stronger of a signal and held onto the signal better. They also offer Max-Stream range extenders that automatically switch a device to the stronger signal. I didn't have a chance to test that out but it would likely add a stronger signal upstairs for me. One other thing I noted was that devices stayed connected to the EA8300 router instead of dropping off like they did on my old router. Not sure what is responsible for that, but this router just works well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great router by Linksys! I was very pleased to receive another great router from Linksys. As usual, setup was a breeze so those who aren't as adept with technology can easily set up the router to whatever they want. The range on the router was great and covered my entire house. Speed was great! Usually, speed differences are usually marginally better when I upgrade, but it really shined when the whole family was on the router- Less slowdown and the flow of traffic was much better! For the price point, I think that it'll be perfect for multiple users that eat a lot of bandwidth [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting Edge! I received this router from Linksys in exchange for writing a review. I've had the EA8300 for about two weeks now, and I couldn't be more pleased. I replaced a WRT 1900 ACS and found this router to be an improvement. In addition to being tri-band, it has a smaller footprint, greater range, and with the android app for my phone, it is more manageable. The browser based setup is a piece of cake, and I'm very pleased with this device. If you have multiple devices, stream video or game online, I think that you will be really happy with this router.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good router, but very dissappointing guest network The setup was a breeze. And I really like most of the features of the router, especially the VLAN support. So far, it seems reliable. But I just had the opportunity to try the Guest network feature. I'm now so dissappointed I'm thinking of returning the router and buying another brand. The Guest network requires you to treat your guests like they are staying in a hotel, requiring them to open a web browser to enter the password! I couldn't even get this to work on my friends smart phone. All I got was redirect failures from the chrome browser. I want to give my guests a WIFI password that just WORKS, and connects automatically. With this system the WIFI doesn't even have security on it (It's Open), so when my guest does type the password, it will be in the clear. This means that a hacker could easily sniff it! Very dissappointing.
