  • So far so awesome

    from Canada on November 22, 2019

    I had the linksys 1200. It was a joke but for $40 you get what you pay for. This one is awesome compared to it. Finally I can control my kids wifi. Range is good. App is pretty awesome. I’m finally happy and not cursing my internet provider. Should have just bought this and spent the money a long time ago.

  • crippled by bad firmware

    from British Columbia on June 1, 2019

    Tried hard to like this one as it was fast. The problem is the firmware. It comes with Linksys "we know better than you" attitude. I cannot access my internal web server or security cameras (from any wireless device). There was a hidden wi-fi menu that was removed in the last update from Linksys. There is no custom firmware as Linksys has locked everything down so you cannot fix these issues. So if you need a router for grandma to access FB it will work but not for serious users.

    from Toronto, ON on February 7, 2019

    It was dropping my devices the first night I have it installed. Called Linksys tech support. After an hour with them, they recommended returning the unit back to store.
