Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad decision I do not recommend buying this garbage, it restarts itself every so often, I replaced it and the problem continues, I am already completely annoyed with the problem and the Support does not help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best high-mid router to replace my Fios router This MR7500/AXE6600 router replaces my Vzn Fios G3100 router and it's every bit as good and even better speed wise. My Dell all-in-one PC is connected to it via cat-5 ethernet and it gets very close to my symmetrical gigabit rated speeds down and up. The wifi speeds on 5Ghz and 6Ghz are signif slower in the 3xx-4xx Mbps but that's to be expected when using WPA encryption which penalizes your speeds by 35%. You'll also take a performance hit due to simultaneous streaming to your tv sticks/boxes, cells, tablets, laptops, and connecting to your VPN. Anyway, the takeaway is that all these speeds are a bit better than Vzn's own router. Some other important benefits are that the four antennas articulate so you can direct the signal up, down, etc if you live in a multistory townhouse and that's on top of the beam steering it does already. And though it wants to bind all bands together by default, you can easily separate them into 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz, and 6Ghz bands to service smart home devices that use the 2.4Ghz band. It's also very easy to manage the router from your PC as well as from the mobile app. The only thing I miss from prior Linksys routers is the network map it would draw and that you could filter devices shown via ethernet, 2Ghz band, etc; now it's a list which can grow to be very long these days. Doesn't really matter since once you get things set up, you're never really in the management interface that much anymore. I'm really content with this router and hope it lasts years and years especially since it's got that 5Gbps internet connection port that'll easily accommodate connection speeds for the near future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Compact Size & Simple but Lacking I bought this a bout 3~4 days ago.(Best Buy) Would have to say, there less redeeming features compared to competition. Sadly will be returning it due to software issues. What's great about it? The overall design, has many features that other competitor don't. Also it meets bare minimum of what is considered as a "modern" router if I were to call it & its affordable price. Bought this router for Wifi 6e, 5Gbs WAN Port, Compact Size(Pic 1), Free & rotating Antennas(Simple), and Wall mountable. Most of features are already self explanatory, however the most important to me were Wall Mounting, size & antenna count. Most routers don't have wall mount feature holes under the router anymore. The compact size just like the netgear mounted on the wall behind it. Finally, the antennas are only a count of 4 which is very manageable & minimalistic. Most of the competitor routers are basically the size of the top of a bed side table. The size is manageable for this. Most new routers have antennas I would have to say to be overkill in quantity or its fixed, which cant be adjusted to your preference. Which the hydra pro 6e takes everything by the cake in terms of physical features. Now for the negative, which is the reason as to why I'm returning the router. As an FYI this is not my 1st Linksys, i've moved from this brand b/c of the software related issues. Here are my issues 1st No full user control, the interface has no advanced user control. You have less control to create new protocols, and even separating or differentiating Wifi bands. Protocols that will let you manually separate the network if you have servers or virtual boxes. However, the interface is good for those who want simplicity. This is very good for users who are not well versed with wifi or just want a 1 time setup. 2nd The Speed Test always fails for router, also it does not properly measure your provider speed. I have a 1200 Down & 40 Up, this thing only measures 200 Down & 30 Up. I'm fine with the Up that's usually normal, but down is messed up. 200 Down!!! really? I called Linksys, they recommended to reset the router, which did not help at all. I've had to restore the router 3x to see if it will work. Also i only connected my desktop to make sure there is nothing that holds back the speed test. Nothing worked!!! What's funny is that when i measure from my computer I get at least 500~800 Down, which says something about the software of the router. 3rd, every time you use the desktop web link for this, an Ad popup always comes up to use the app, seriously come on. that is annoying. Finally 4th, The app interface and password sharing is outdated. compared to its competitors. The app interface is simple but very slow, also its seems to be set up for the mesh system instead of just the single router. A lot of its feature are locked b/c most are for the mesh system. Next is the password sharing, is only based on send the password info manually via text or manually entering on the phone. This is just sad, the competitor amazon, tp-link, google, netgear, d-link & Asus, already use a QR code for sharing wifi name & password. While linksys is still currently in manual sharing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly. there is an app for that. The hardware works nicely. Its unfortunate that this thing is intentionally crippled without using an app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs As Advertised Have been using this router for about six (6) months. Very easy set up with excellent firmware. The router has great range, so much so I removed the mesh system that I had been using. The router is rock steady. I use Spectrum internet service and pay for 500 gbps and consistently return that or slightly faster score on Okla Speedtest. This router is price as a bargain on this website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from *Internet speed as advertised* I paired Motorola's mb8611 modem with this router Linksys Atlas Max 6E and Tri-Band AXE8400 Mesh WiFi 6E System using ISP-Xfinity's Gigabit Extra Plan in a 2 500sq foot home and the speeds are unbelievable, A+ from my experience!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps disconnecting and never give full speed I bought 7 routers and connected them. I was really shocked the the poor performance. 1- It disconnect frequently and I have to open the app almost daily to restart routers. 2- I never got the speed that's coming to the router, it comes 400-500 Mbps through the cable and the router gives me 180 Mbps maximum .. VERY DISAPPOINTING. 3- If I want to connect a new device to the network I have to take the device to the main router and connect it from there, otherwise it won't connect. Imagine buying 7 routers and this is what you experience !! .. You will never buy any product from them again and this is what I'm going to do

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linksys MR7500 Mesh Widi 6e router This router is mesh compatible and can accommodate my internet speed of 1200 MBs because of the 2.5 gig wan port. Not the best 2.4 or 5 gig Wi-Fi performance. I don’t have any 6e devices to check that performance.

Is the Linksys app required to adjust the MR7500 settings? Can it be logged into via a browser and it's IP address?

Can this router simultaneously send and receive 2.4ghz and 5ghz? So I can connect my smart home devices and everything else at the same time without having to choose between one or the other...

Asked by: Joeblow
It can maintain connections on both bands at once. Whether it maintains them or not is another question. Not a very stable router unfortunately.

There are three wireless bands, but none of my newer/compatible devices will show the 6GHz band, do I need to set something special up?

If I understand it correctly, this Tri-band router automatically switches band to keep you connected on the best available band,
