Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very goog router, but..... I've been using the device for a month. In principle it works very well. I bought it for the 6GHz band, yes it runs fantastic. With connections, stability and speed I have no problems. What I'm missing: I'd like to have two or three guest networks that are coordinated for one or two volumes. For example, one guest network for 5 GHz and one for 6 GHz, and the third for 2.4 GHz, with the Asus it was not a problem. Here is one net for all volumes and one for guests. Otherwise I'm very satisfied and let the device run until WiFi 7 comes, also gladly a Linksys again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good WiFi 6 Router and 6GHz is Ready I was using the Linksys E1000 and have used it for a remote work in FL in 2019. 2020 has been that year that introduced the world to remote work. This time I studied routers and did not know that I was using a slow one and the lowest band (2.4 GHz)! I bought the Linksys WRT1900 ACS and I got intrduced to the 5GHz band :). However, in 2021, I read about the WiFi6 and the 6GHz band and on Thanksgiving 2021, I guess, I am one of the lucky persons to see the MR7500 for $250 and I bought 1 right away! What a good deal! iPones 12 and 13 are WiFi6, but won't see the 6 GHz band. I bought the Pixel 6A and I am able to connect the 6GHz band. It is really fast. I am satisfied with the MR7500 and I still connected the two earlier routers I have giving me more devices to get connected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment I use a big home network with a lot of wired connections devices, for this I have LGS318. Where is port aggregation in MR7500? Do you seriously think that LAG is superfluous? LAG! LAG! LAG! MUST HAVE!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Download speed is lacking Had this device for little less than 2 year and had no problems with stability or speeds according to initial ISP plan of 450-500. But then Comcast increased speed to 600 and now to 800 and desktop tests show no changes in speed showing no higher than 290 for download with multiple parallel connections (min20/max20/ 20/20) via fast dot com. Replaced all internet cables to CAT8 to no resolve. Finally connected laptop directly to the cable modem and got speed via same app at 1Gbps to 24Mbps. Reconnected the network cables back via Linksys router and getting low 290/12 with only laptop connected to the router. Disappointed since I hoped this device would be future proof for at least 5 years.

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.

Looking at the specs, the security is for the 2.4 & 5 ghz bands, but not for the 6ghz band. Is the 6ghz band secured? Is there a firmware update?

Asked by: Chris-in-Florida
Yes! WPA3 Personal (all bands) Firmware update can be set automatic.

Can I use my RE7000 as an access point and another RE7000 as a range extender with a Linksys Hydra Pro 6E?

Asked by: Venomis
Yes, Venomis. However, it is best to use another mesh node to extend the coverage of the Hydra Pro 6E.

I have 66 devices which receives WiFi from this new 6E Router, however, many of my Wyze Cameras inside and outside that are attached to my 2400 square foot home only receive a two bar siginal, and sometimes my outside Cameras fall off line, why is that?

Asked by: LBME
You are smart enough to afford a 2400 square foot house and yet not smart enough to realize you are likely having out of range problems. I guess that explains why you have Wyze cameras. Also the Hydra is a good router but 66 devices is a bit much as well. Bump up your router to one that can handle more devices and look into some range extenders.

I am trying to connect to the USB for an external Hard Drive of the Router and I do the steps that you recommend and nothing comes out I would like to know why it does not work for me

Asked by: Javietch03
How old is your computer? Is it Laptop or Desktop? What operating system are you using? I never recommended anything for hooking up a USB for an External Hard Drive, but will attempt to assist you. I am not sure about your question. Are you attempting to attach a hard drive to the router?

What nodes do I use to make a mesh with this router? Can I buy one or only a two pack?

Asked by: Chris S
Any Linksys velop nodes work with this mesh router.  I use velop nodes whw0303 with my setup and they work great and have great bandwidth.  Even though the nodes are Wi-Fi 5, they are way cheaper than the wifi6 and wifi6e nodes and little performance difference. The wifi5 nodes are solid and no connection drops.
