Easy to set up. I had no problems and I am NOT techie at all. I did go in and change my password so that all my devices hooked up with the new router and that was really no problem. The online instructions are easy to follow even for an almost Luddite

Exceptional Speed, Range, and Signal Penetration
Cable Internet (100Mbps) just became available, leaving 3 Mbps DSL behind. The new EA8300 provides solid performance throughout the 3-level, 3700SF home. I anticipated having to buy the RE7000 extender, but the EA8300 does a fantastic job inside and out.....no extender required.
This router is TOPS
This router is working great so far and meeting all the needs that I have; and better than the still working E3000 that it replaced. The range is excellent on both bands and handles all devices with no lag or drops experienced thus far. The 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands do great considering the differences in their band capabilities. I am using a smart TV, 2 computers (1 AC capable) and 2 cell phones; Great performance. Also, Linksys did not supply me a free router as some have had !!!
Moved to a new home and my previous router, an EA2700, was covering my home. The EA8300 now covers my home giving us close to full reception and speed everywhere in our home, very pleased! I renamed the wifi and changed the password to match the previous router, and we didn't need to reconnect any of our devices, that just connected immediately!!
Purchased this router to upgrade our equipment for streaming. It has met our needs, for streaming Amazon Fire, and installation was a snap. This router replaced an older Linksys router. This is my 3rd Linksys router. All Linksys products have served us well. We have only had to replace them when we required
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.]
Much faster than the older Linksys EA3500
The previous EA3500 stopped working...? WIFI was slow and inconsistent and down streaming on Demand would not work with nearly 100mbps cable speed...until installation of the EA8300/AC2200! Installation was relatively easy, and once the wifi printer was reconfigured from the old Router to the new one...life was restored again, to a better, faster, seamless level with no buffering! It is been about a month and no issues yet. Signal strength on the other end of the house has increased as well. Overall very pleased.
constant WiFi cut outs
When it works it is powerful. But the WiFi cuts out contantly. If you could update the software. It would be an excellent router.
