Parental Controls rarely work

The title says it all. They do not work at all, or rarely when they do. And it seems this is a common issue on forum across the web. And this is terrible since this is the reason I purchased it. The speed is great but I want to limit my families internet time.

USB does not work with Mac 10.11 or 10.12

It is good to know that the USB does not work with Mac 10.11 or 10.12 currently. Works very well otherwise.

Highly recommend.

Installed easily, no problems so far. Dual band works good. Download and upload speeds were improved from my old router, which was an Apple airport Extreme. Since the modem is on the top floor of my house I use a Linksys range extended in the basement for my basement needs. Very happy so far.

Great Linksys Router with MU-MIMO capabilities.

I always have Linksys products because of their quality and their warranty also regarding their functions. I was surprised regarding the new wifi speeds that I have now (in 2Ghz and also 5 Ghz) without mention the lag free access from all my devices. I also have an IP Phone that I added immediately in the prioritization that you have in the application (via Web or by the Android application). The setup went very fast and simple (less than 10 minutes plus a 3 minutes firmware upgrade), I have a lot of experience with their application. Another great add, now you can delete old routers from your Linksys account (in my case I have 2 old Linksys routers in my account). One of the cheapest MIMO routers in the market, and it was on special plus with the Best Buy card you can pay the router without any penalties in 3 months. Also this router was awarded by the Pc Magazine Editor's Choice in 2016. Very happy with the upgrade and remember to do your own research.

Intermittent Problems - even with replacement

Other reviews of this router were generally positive, but my experience was entirely negative. I could not connect to the router's settings page through the ethernet connection and had to do it wirelessly through and Ipad app. More importantly, the wifi connection was intermittent and would disconnect and reconnect several times an hour. This made steaming of music and video wirelessly an exercise in frustration. I replaced it with the same model and had similar problems. Thank goodness for Best Buy's return policy. I am now using an ASUS RT-AC68U. Not only is it rock solid, its UI is useful and fun.

Broken firmware

The router started reseting/dropping connections after being in service for 24 hours. There's a firmware problem so don't bother wasting your time with this router.

Works great!

I had to upgrade to this one for my parents' house, because a smaller one that I bought on Boxing Day was insufficient. I had a little trouble setting it up, but there was a setting I had missed. Then everything was fine. Works great throughout a large house.

Gave up on it after replacement also failed!

Purchased this router for our new 4K UHD TV. First problem we ran into was that the TV could not find the 5GHz band. Upon calling Linksys support, we were told that the firmware was out of date. That first call became a very long one when the update kept erroring out. The tech almost gave up and suggested that there might be a hardware flaw. Took the router back to the store for a replacement. Got that one up and running fine with the TV this time recognizing the 5GHz band. Everything was great until we tried connecting our wireless printer then all hell broke loose! The printer as well as our additional apple devices could not connect and after resetting the router, the signal kept dropping. At this point, we gave up and returned the device to the store. This should not be so difficult! Our rating: zero stars.

Installed easily in 10 minutes. Excellent signal at opposite end of house where WiFi never even reached with old router. Plus on sale. Very satisfied so far.
