This is awesome! I needed wireless streaming in my shop (200ft) down the hill from my computer modem and this works awesome. I had to call to get help setting up cause of my complicated set up, and they were great at cisco! I already had a d-link router attached to my motorola modem for additional wired ethernet connections. I could not have done this on my on. I may make a video of the set up. If I had not already had the d-link router it would have been plug and play. OK, 1st I couldnt just connect it to the LAN ethernet cable in my shop. I had to bring it back up the hill and connect it to my computer and when the screen popped up for the settings we had to change some settings from a drop down menu. Very easy with their help. Then I was able to take it to my shop and connect an ethernet cable from my d-link to the internet/ethernet port on the Linksys EA6500 wireless router. Now I can stream Netflix and Hbo-go from my roku 3 wirelessly!!! subscriptions needed. I'm trying to remember some of the settings. I had to name my shop network, password, and then some other selections from a scroll down menu. This is in the basement of my shop and the roku 3 rocks wireleslly! on the tv on the first floor. hint, after powering up the cisco, wait for the logo to stop blinking before connecting the ethernet cables. Don't hesitate to call Cisco, they are great. This picture is what my computer looks like, but the nice clean basement with one ethernet cable is very nice.

did a care search and comparison before finally getting this Linksys EA6500, but it was a disappointment. setting up was easy, even if you want to log on internet to change the password etc, it was not difficult. however, the rest was not what I had expected. the signal strength was fair to poor within 15 yards of my house (only 2 drywalls will kill 50%), and the connection would "automatically" disappear then re-appear for no apparent reasons. the bottom of router got really WARM quickly (you might say that's hot not just warm). finally today, we can't access some common public websites, such as Fed Reserve website through the router (the website was OK when we took router out and connect computer to modem directly). Well, I know you can call Linksys for tech support, but we do not have time and Walmart only give you 2 weeks for return. So, it was returned. I am not saying Linksys router is bad in general, it could just be my bad luck. Anyways, I will not buy another EA6500 to test if my luck gets better or not.

I recently moved and the new house has block walls which my old wireless router could not penetrate. So I upgraded to the Linksys EA6500 AC1750 Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router. My old router was 5+ years old, so technology has come a long way in that time. The Linksys AC1750 has features that I didn't know were possible. The range is amazing and the speed is incredible even through block walls. I get a solid signal outside to the patio which is 120 feet away through several walls. The parental controls are a welcome feature as well. I can control when the kids can get online on their devices. I had a networked hard drive connected to my old router which did not work with the Linksys. I got a new one (that was on the list of approved devices), plugged it in and it was identified immediately. I have had it for 6 months and it has not had any issues. I don't have to unplug it to reset it like the old one. It is a great router with features that are actually useful and not just bells and whistles.

After having been the recipient of great service and reliability from my Linksys Wireless G for many years I entered ownership of the EA6500 with high expectations. I'm vey pleased to say that I have not been dissapointed. The EA6500 has been reliable and I'm impressed with it's ability to connect all my devices seamlessly. The only issue I've had thus far was created due to a power outage but the folks at Linksys walked me through a simple procedure and got me back on line in short order. Terrific service, great product!

I was having issues with speed of downloads. I was guaranteed 60mbs to the house and was only getting 6.5mbs with my 10 year old Linksys router and saw this one on sale in an e-mail "flyer" from Linksys. I now have 65+mbs and couldn't be happier! It works wonderfully!
