reduce my speed internet

I bought this router to replace my Videotron but when I test my speed internet I pass from 30 Mbps to 9 Mbps. And I also test it by downloading a file (1Gb) with this router it takes me 17 min and Videotron 5 min. So I just return my Linksys Ac1200. you can do your own experience but I don't recommend it to use with Videotron.

Make sure you upgrade firmware!!!

This router works soo much better with newest firmware released in June of 2016 (Build 173444). Even my printer works with this router now.

  • from Toronto

Good features, poor performance.

Consistently cuts out regardless of range. Sluggish speed most of the time. Spend more and buy a better quality router.

Ea6100 router

Keeps cutting out, the worst router I have ever bought. I will never buy another Linksys router again,

Good Router!!!

Just have it for a couple months - works great, never had any issues. Installation process was fast and easy. All overall - I like it!

  • from Mississauga, ON

Good Router for the price your paying!

I've been using this router for several years now without any issues. Unlike all routers it heats up at times and may slow down your speeds but after giving it a restart works perfectly smooth. I paid [price]at the time I bought it but with the increased strength it provided compared to other routers it was what I was looking for over the speed. Still using this router and would recommend it anyone just looking for a stable router with decent speeds.

  • from Northern WI

So disappointing

Worked for a few days then slowed down, which I verified with a speedtest. So I re-booted it. Well that sped it up again but I lost every setting. By disconnecting power the router returned itself to factory settings. I think this is piece of junk!

  • from Granby

Bad router

First day was good, then it started getting worse over days. Usualy i had 3mbps and this router gave me 0.5mbps. The range of this router is very limited. I'm gonna return it for an other.

  • from Kamploops

Please don't

So I've recently moved and my old router wasn't very good so I bought this router. I got to say I'm disappointed. Saying 300mbs on the box. For the first 3 days it was fine. Until after, my devices were buffering I was getting less then 400kb download speed. Please do not buy this router, save your money

  • from Brentwood

Linksys router

I had a old router from 2008 it was slow and really outdated. Bought this router to replace it. I want my old router back. After a couple days devices buffered and took forever to load and Internet page. DO NOT BUY

Parent Control lacking for guest network

the UI is not very intuitive and after doing a manual setup, was not prompted with a login screen and was re-prompted to run the setup wizard again which would not run. Had to perform a hardware reset after configuring 20 mac addresses. It worked well after configuring it and streaming movies to chromecast was flawless on the 2GHz band and prioritization is a nice feature However, the parental control is limited to only the devices connected to your network. The Guest network has no parental control settings at all which is what my old NetGear WNDR3700 has. Going back to NetGear which has better parental control for both my network and a guest network.

  • from Lubbock

Bad router and slow.

It worked fine when I first had it then e weeks into it slow devices kept buffering returned it for a different router. Don't buy it.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Not as good as it looked

Bought this linksys router replacing my 4 year old D-link. At first the dual band seemed very fast on the 5ghz connection, but a day later everything started to slow down. i tried moving the router to a central area in the house, but with no luck. For the price I expected better, returned a few days later, with some more research I am planning on getting a more reliable device.
