  • A Good Mesh WiFi 6 Router!
    Reviewed by TSchmitz - July 16, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good way to get an entry level mesh WiFi 6 router, like a good starter home. However, since I am in my forever home, it is insufficient to meet my needs. Specifically, Up to 1700 Square Feet, where I need 4000; 25 + Devices, where I need 67 + Devices; so it is simply too entry level to meet my needs. That being said, it is a good router, but not for me. The Linksys Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR9600) is a better fit for me.

  • Excellent budget WiFi 6 AX Router
    Reviewed by SpeedTestsMacOSandiOS - November 23, 2020

    Going to start off giving it an excellent rating because its been delivering the speeds I expected. Some things to consider: Pros - iOS app to setup network is very simple and took about 10 minutes - Very fast speeds(including some screenshots) Cons - After updating the firmware, noticed reduced speeds, tried resetting the router to factory but I don't think that it reset the firmware but after doing this speeds were back to normal. - Tried setting up the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands separately. Can't do this from the app, only setting app shows for this is ""Wi-Fi Mode: Mixed". Found this link on Linksys Community Forum https://community.linksys.com/t5/Velop-Whole-Home-Wi-Fi/How-to-change-wifi-mode-from-mixed-to-ac-and-change-the-channel/td-p/1160009 where a comment says to go to the website and use an older version of the webpage to configure separate channels. I was able to that that but the speeds weren't going back to normal so I'd suggest sticking to whatever algorithm they have in place and not messing with it. Maybe it was an issue with Xfinity at the time, maybe the router. I'll update this review if any issues occur.

  • My review of the MR7350
    Reviewed by Baxter - July 23, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My review of the Linksys MR7350 So far I really like the Linksys MR7350, It was very easy to set up and the signal was strong all through my home. This is a dual band mesh wifi 6 router so you are ready for any new phones or computers that you purchase. I can’t take advantage of the Wifi 6 capabilities yet but I do have a PCie adapter coming for my desktop that will allow me to do so. The guest and parental controls work great. The one issue I have had is that it will not find my thermostat or my doorbell and I have tried it on guest network too. It has found everything else with no problems at all, I will keep working on the doorbell and thermostat and let you know what I find. I added two of my velop nodes to the network and they are working fine. My neighbor says that my signal is high at his house and he is about 125 foot away. This router is backward compatible so I would not waste my money on a Wifi 5 router when you can have the latest at the same money and be ready for the future. This router covers up to 1700 ft and does an excellent job getting a signal out to all your devices. It has a 3.o usb port for an external drive if you wish and 4 Ethernet ports. You will love the looks and size of this router, It will go into small areas and it is one of the nicest looking routers I have seen. The router will accept over 25 devices and should cover all the devices you throw at it. Speed has been fantastic and no lag at all. Linksys just keeps coming out with better products with better looks all the time! Keep up the good work. Be safe Baxter

  • Good WiFi Speed/Coverage As A Standalone Router
    Reviewed by LinksysParadox - August 5, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] MR7350 Review The Linksys MR7350 mesh WiFi6 router is as plain as they come. An all-black body with vents on top and a black panel on the front with a single LED status light. The box it came in does not state any technical specs other than the speed of AX1800 (up to 1.8 Gbps), but you can search online for the technical specs. It is a dual band router that uses 2 non-removable antennas mounted on the back. The box states that it is good for up to 1700 square feet, so I'm hoping my 2 story 3000 square foot home falls within those parameters. It is a MU-MIMO capable router and is compatible with Linksys' Velop line of mesh routers. In fact, while setting the MR7350 up via Linksys' iPhone app, it gets displayed as a Velop router. It does have a USB 3.0 port that can be used to attach an external hard drive that can be shared by users on your home network. It also has ports for 4 ethernet connections, should you wish to attach devices via hardwire. This is something that the original Velop mesh router did not have and for my use, is a welcome addition. Before swapping out my existing router, a Linksys WRT3200ACM, I took speed measurements around my home at various locations where I have devices set up ranging from cameras, to a sprinkler controller, to a TV, smart plugs, Amazon Echo's, and various laptops & smartphones/tablets. These measurements were to be used as a baseline of how much a difference the routers would perform wirelessly. I, unfortunately, did not have another node available to test the mesh capability of the MR7350, but I assume that the speed would be improved in the outlying areas of my home, as well improved signal quality. I also did not have any WiFi6 capable equipment to test the speeds using WiFI6. The same goes for the MU-MIMO capability. Setup via the app was easy and quick. Within about 5 minutes after connecting my ethernet cables and power, I was up and running. I used the app to tweak the configuration of the router, changing the password, SSID names/passwords for both 2.4 & 5.0 bands (you can name both SSID the same by a click of a link), and other settings. Most common settings are available, except for the ability to change bandwidth and channels manually is not available. There is a function to have the router scan the channels & automatically "OPTIMIZE" the channel selection/bandwidth using an algorithm that is used by the Linksys firmware. Strangely, security is limited to WPA2 & WPA3 Personal only (no Enterprise). Older protocols are not supported, so I'm not sure what happens with older equipment. The aesthetics of the router is a little disappointing since there are no status lights on the front panel, except for the master status light, which just displays power on, connection status (blinking means it has no internet connection) and readiness to be setup via the app. There are what I assume are transmit and receive LEDs by each ethernet port and the WAN port, but no wireless send/receive status, like how the WRT3200ACM displays on its front panel. To my surprise, the MR7350 WiFi5 performance was faster at every test point in comparison to the WRT3200ACM. Significantly faster. On both bands. The signal quality (just eyeballing the signal icon on my phone) was also improved. In my family room, I was getting only 0.1 Mbps on the 2.4 band and 7.44 on the 5.0 band with my WRT3200ACM router, whereas the MR7350 gave me 26.9 Mbps & 106.4 Mbps. In my garage, 2.4-7.45 Mbps, 5.0-10.83 Mbps (WRT3200ACM); 2.4-21.1 Mbps, 5.0-87.3 Mbps (MR7350). In my dining room, 24.-2.13 Mbps, 5.0-21.46 Mbps (WRT3200ACM); 2.4-25.9 Mbps, 5.0-277.6 Mbps (MR7350). Other areas around the house showed similar improvements, some areas on the first floor, some on the 2nd with walls, floors, and doors providing no line of sight for all locations. Based on these readings, I would whole heatedly recommend this router to be used just as a standalone router. Knowing that it could be expanded in the future by adding nodes makes it a plus feature. Once the router is setup via the app, the router can be accessed via a browser on a computer, which is what I did since it is easier to navigate between setup screens to further explore the settings. One thing that isn't available via the web interface is the ability to scan channels for optimized WiFi. That feature is only available via the app. Updates to the firmware is done automatically. In fact, there is no way to manually update the firmware or save the router configuration. This router does allow for Parental control by device or website, Guest access, basic device prioritization, internet speed test, external storage management, IPv6, MTU settings, MAC address cloning, port forwarding, bridge mode, MAC filtering, VPN passthrough, some basic firewall settings, and setting up a DMZ. The router does allow for logging info to be collected for diagnostics purposes, as well as listing devices connected by wireless connection or LAN with MAC addresses & IP address assignments. Overall, this router seems to be a hybrid between the original Velop routers and a more conventional router in the sense that it comes with 4 ethernet ports for hardwire connections. The WiFi radio is a major improvement over the WRT3200ACM (which was a new model only about 4 years ago, and it comes in a more compact body. I look forward to adding a WiFi6 capable device in the future to explore the promised capability of WiFi6.
