Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deceptive advertising by Linksys Come on! This is capable of 1.2Gbps speed but only 100mbps for WAN. What shameful advertising. This item feels as cheap as their advertising tactics. Don't ask me to reach out to your engineers like other reviewers. Maybe you should reach out to your marketing team?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linksys WiFi 5 Router Dual-Band AC1200 (E5400) I Purchased this Wi-Fi Router for a client that was using a Linksys e1200 do to age and failure. I Set up my client with a Linksys WiFi 5 Router Dual Band AC1200 (E5400) main reasoning behind do so was price point and for the setup and would work with the cable modem. Other reasoning is the basic equipment that consist of a older desktop computer with a 10/100/1000 gigabit onboard nic on a Dell OptiPlex 755 from 2009 using Windows 10 pro And a Hp Envy Laptop from 202 802.11b/g/n/ac (2x2) Wi-Fi. basically both people us it for web browsing ,emailing checking Facebook and other basic applications. This router is not meant for large file transfers game playing or streaming 4k or 8k videos. If your looking to do high volume traffic or running more the 10 device or heavy game play, or multi devices streaming hd videos at once this is not the router for you. At the price point you get what you pay for

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good travel router, lacks "repeater" functionality Bought this when the hotel's WiFi was unusable but they provided ethernet jacks in the rooms, so I set up my own WiFi. Worked great for that. On a different trip, stayed at a place where there are no accessible ethernet jacks and the WiFi signal is very weak in certain rooms. I wanted put this router where the WiFi signal was strongest and set it up in repeater mode so we'd have a strong signal everywhere. Unfortunately, I found out that this router lacks repeater/extender functionality and it appears there is no third party firmware (such as openwrt or ddwrt) for this model, which makes it only a "good" travel router for me, vs. "great".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Underwhelming, but cheap ISP technician installing for a customer. Despite being rated as a Wifi 5 access point, this router is really unable to take advantage of this wireless standard. For wireless settings, you can only increase the 5ghz channel width to 40 mhz. most routers give you the option of 80. the WAN port is only rated for 100Mbps down, so any customer with speed packages higher than literally can not get higher than that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Deeply flawed − The 100Mbps "fast ethernet" WAN port hamstrings the router's alleged 1.2Gbps capabilities: it supports LESS THAN A TENTH of the throughput advertised in the description. − IPv6 DNS servers cannot be configured; you're forced to use the ISP's DNSv6 servers, or disable IPv6 entirely. − The entire router reboots, kicking all wireless clients off, when making any configuration changes, even those that DO NOT REQUIRE a reboot or any disruption to existing clients. − Guest SSID cannot be changed, nor can its security mode be changed from a hardcoded HTTP gateway (rendering it insuitable for legacy devices such as a Nintendo DS Lite). − The DDNS client is hardcoded to two (now-defunct) providers, rather than supporting any standardized interface.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Marketing Scheme. The marketing and everything on the box makes it seem like you can get speeds up to 1200 mb/s, you can't. That's only BETWEEN devices on your network. I have 400 mb/s download internet and will only be able to reach 98 mb/s download and 20 mb/s upload. Don't be fooled.

when in wireless bridge mode does it use both 2.4 and 5 ghz or does it only use one and can I use the other band to connect devices wirelessly??

Asked by: texbob
Hi, texbob. One band is used for the bridge connection, and the other for connecting wireless devices. If the 5 GHz band will be used for bridging, then the 2.4 GHz band on the router becomes the available frequency for Wi-Fi clients. Conversely, if the bridge connection uses the 2.4 GHz band, then the 5 GHz band on the router is designated as the available frequency for Wi-Fi clients.

Have Defender Guard Security Cameras that will not work on 5G. Can this router's 2G Band receive the network required for use?

Asked by: N4EMP
Hi. Certainly, you can connect your security cameras to the Linksys E5400 as the router supports 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band networks. We suggest to create a different SSID for each band to easily identify the network to which your device is connected.

I bought this specifically to operate my robot litter box as my current wifi6 doesn't work with litter box app. I don't need this for anything else other than litter box. Is this possible?

Asked by: kjh11

can I disable the wifi capabilities on this wifi?

Asked by: jll77
Hi! Just log into the router’s web UI, then click on ‘Wireless Network’ in the left panel. Once you’re on the wireless network page, click on ‘Configuration’ and select ‘Wi-Fi’ from the left side. From there, you’ll see the Basic Wireless Settings. Disabling the Network Mode will turn off the Wi-Fi.
