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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Max speeds you'll get are 100 megabits/s The internet port is a 100MBPS port, not a gigabit port, meaning 100 MBPS max. YOU WILL NOT GET GIGABIT DOWNLOAD SPEEDS. Not what you'd think when you read 1200 MBPS in the advertising.

I'm only getting a max of 90-ish mbps on the wifi signal with the 2.4ghz and 5ghz while be within a few feet of the router, but it states 2.4ghz can do 300mbps and 5ghz 867mbps? Online states: 10/100mbps per port, nothing more......????

Asked by: jimbob_89
Hi, jimbob_89. For isolation, try to reboot your Linksys router along with your modem for a quick refresh. Relocate or place your router as well to an open area away from physical obstruction such as thick walls and floor.
