    The Best of the Best!

    This has to be the best wireless router for home networking on the market today. I love it! It was noticeably faster. I read where some people had trouble setting it up but that was not the case at all. I have roadrunner and I was up and running in 10-15 minutes with absolutely no issues what so ever. Just put in the disc and follow the directions. I also have 2 media servers running on my network. The port forwarding and dyndns setup was as simple as it comes. I can't wait for the cloud upgrade coming this summer. That will really take home electronics to another level. The only con was it's a bit pricey and I'm a value guy. I had a struggled buying this when I know next year it will be half the price but I'm glad I did. A+

    WOW...IT works!

    I love my linksys EA 4500. I am a novice to medium tech/computer person. I bought this because there was (at the time) 1 review, but the person mention their cable company as TineWarner (same company I have). Hookup was a breeze. The cd disc that came with the product actually did all the work. I have 2 laptops, 1 desktop ,1 eReader, & a printer connected. I picked mine up from my local Walmart. The only negative I have is the price & knowing it will drop maybe before Christmas. However, I needed it now. The EA 4500 was a great choice for me. This was the first time I connected a wi-fi, thus if I was able to get it up & running, anyone can. I was forced to get a wi-fi, as the one I had with TimeWarner would not allow me to hookup my eReader (b-day gift), thus I had to dump my wi-fi with them. I will save $11.00/month or about $134.00/year for their wi-fi service. So in about in 15 months I will break even with the cost for this one. I was afraid to change at firstbecause I knew very little about wi-fi & connecting the thing. I've only had mine for a week, but I'm not having any problems. I researched, read reviews, asked questions before my purchase. I'm glad I narrowed it down to this one. The people in Walmart were very helpful & patient answering all my questions (I had many). Thank you Walmart!

    Linksys router EA4500

    Easy to setup - it came with a CD that did all the work. The range has really increased from my previous router. It has been functioning as advertise. I am happy with it.

    Solid, simple, and great performance

    Didn't know how bad my old router was until I replaced it with the EA4500. Before I thought it was an issue with Internet through-put and my provider, but everything was resolved the minute this router booted up. Setup was amazingly simple, took all of 10 minutes and that included going downstairs to test my laptop range. Videos play with no latency with HD fully supported. Should have made this move months ago.

    easy to install.

    All my computers and laptops are connecting fast with no problem so far. I got 2 family memeber in college and one in middle school plus work from home and more. Im very happy with this router.

    Simple to install, easy to understand

    This is my second WIFI, but this one was so simple to install. With the other one I had to call for help and configure my computer, etc. Recommend highly.

    Best Router in the Last Year! Solid & Easy Setup!

    I have owned a bunch of Routers in the past by a bunch of different companies. I am a Certified Computer Technician so I do have some knowledge but I have to say that most Novices can setup this router. What I like about it is that it stays on and connected. It has been running for almost a year straight with NO issues. My previous routers I would have to power down and power back up to reset them every now and then but I have never had to do that with this router. The only issues that I have experienced were with my Cable/Internet Company and not my hardware. I get a strong signal not only in my house but out into my driveway as well. This is more expensive than most other routers but well worth it.

    Excellent Router

    This is an excellent N router. Bought it to replace a Linksys "draft N" router that was several years old. I'm not a techie, but I had this new router set up and going within 15 minutes using the included setup disc. Once that was done, I then simply had to go to each computer or smartphone and sign in. No trouble to set up at all. I am running the computers and led TV on the 5 ghz band and the cell phones and iPad on the 2.4. The coverage throughout the house is excellent, especially with the 2.4 frequency. The 5.4 range isn't as great and some planning is needed in term of placement for maximum benefit if you wish to take advantage of what this frequency offers (the reduced range is due to this frequency having less wall penetrating power than the 2.4 - a common issue with dual band routers). The Smart WiFi program feature allows easy fine tuning, prioritization of equipment, and all sorts of other neat stuff very easily and quickly. Read up on this fine router on-line and see what it can do for you. I am delighted with it. Well designed and it works extremely well as a true N router with fast, fast speeds!

    No update software available for it.

    Cannot update the Firmware files, they are nowhere to be found in the Linksys website.

    Excellent Router.

    I had purchased this EA4500 N900 Router going on three years ago now, and it's been nothing short of a very solid working router for my household. We have a total of 14 items which depend on it's wireless and wired Wi-Fi signals everyday, and honestly, this router delivers perfection each and everyday. I basically forgot to leave my feedback for this router, so this is what I have to say. This router has been working without any dropouts of signals in our home, which is almost 2500 square feet throughout on two levels. I do have (7) Logitech Security Cameras, along with (2) Roku Streaming units, along with (1) Sony PS-3 Game Console and (2) Samsung Tablets, (1) Apple Tablet, and (1) Kindle Tablet which all depend on this Linksys EA4500 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router. I have read some of these small but negative feedback ratings on this EA4500 Router, and all I can say is, when dealing with electronics, there will always be defective items as I have learned in life. I have been using my EA4500 Smart Wi-Fi Router for almost three years now, without any hiccups of any kind, as this Router is a workhorse which delivers a solid strong Wi-Fi Wireless Signal. This Router is small in size which I like, but delivers a solid signal throughout my home.
