The new Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream deserves to be taken seriously with the antennas reaching 6-inches in length and its small form factor design. This router is packed with new features. Wi-Fi signal is rock solid and never had signal loss. Gaming and 4K streaming running without any issues. Cellphone app is rock solid and did I mention the setup is so easy like 2 minutes. I threw everything I could to this router gaming, video streaming, music streaming, and it never failed on me. One feature that could be added is bandwidth utilization. In conclusion, very easy set up, high Wi-Fi range, wall mountable, and very stable router. Its a must buy router. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The unit worked great for the first two weeks and now I have to reboot it daily in order for the wireless connections to remain stable. After reboot everything works fine and then after about 24 hours all of my devices have intermittent wireless connectivity. Reboot: again things are fine for about a day and then wireless drops periodically. The firmware is up to date and my network config is straight forward. I am a savvy, experienced user and I paid extra for a device that I thought would be easy to use and this is not it.
I bought this router from BestBuy for my gaming. The router keeps dropping the internet while I am in game.
It can be fast. Range just not there on either band. And sometimes I have to reboot as often as twice daily or the speed drops to nothing. Linksys carefully redid the menu and settings to be as hard to find what you need as possible. I also added better antennas - did not help.
Bought this a week ago. Never set up a router before. Took me 15 minutes to set up. works great. You just follow a few written instructions with big pictures and then do what it tells you to do. That's it. Boom. You're connected.
I just bought it today and may return it tomorrow!!
also it doesnt come up as a linkysys option??
It comes up at a CDA541_2G option?? What??
the only way I could get it on my laptop was by pushing that little button--
no luck getting it on my iphone or my home computer---
