    I bought this router for its MU-MIMO feature. After I set it up and did all the updates, it worked fine for a few days. Then it started dropping WiFi connection to my phone and laptop even after setting priority for those devices. I gave up after trying different things and ended up going with a D-Link DIR-2055 which has been working better for the past two weeks. The range of the D-Link is wider than this one. I really wanted to like the Linksys as I had been using Linksys for my past two routers, but this one just didn't meet my needs.


  • Linksys MU-MIMO Router comes up short!

    I purchased this router in 2018, and now exactly 16 months later I am forced to buy it again. I am very disappointed! The staff at Best Buy recommended it, however the router failed far too quickly. I had the Geek Squad staff at London North examine and they responded "yes, that's not very long for a router to last". I asked about warranty and they said "Sorry... only 1 year". This time I purchased the 3-year extended warranty and I'm pretty sure I will be forced to make a claim.


  • Great Router!

    I have been a dedicated Linksys customer for over 10 years. This router was very easy to setup; plug it in,open a web browser,follow the on screen prompts,and setup within 10 minutes. Performance and range are excellent - I have a 1,500 sq ft home with the router on the top floor and get 100% signal strength in the basement! The Smart Wifi web-based software allows you to view all connected devices,setup a guest network,parental controls,media prioritization,and much more. The router also has 3 external antennas for better range but can be removed. Also,the 2 USB ports on the back of the router are very useful for wireless printing and data sharing. I have 2 computers,2 HD televisions,3 mobile devices,PS4,tablets,etc...this router handles it all no problem! This router has been an absolute pleasure and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants a full customizable,high performance router. Worth every penny!
