Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is able to fully use my 1 Gbps WAN link and keep up with the 40 devices at home. Very good signal coverage across multiple rooms. The only weird thing about the router is that the power cord is very short (<1 m). My router is close to the ceiling and I used an extension cord. Other routers I previously used had an adequate power cord.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay, could be much better. I have been using this for a few months, it's okay but there is better. It is rather limited and has various flaws, some serious like: it has no ability to set ipv6 dns servers like any other brand, and it will add the isp dns to its dns list regardless of you wanting to or not, so if you have a dns server or your own dns server that blocks awebsite.com, the router promptly proceeds to try to resolve it using the isp dns. probably a security vulnerability too but linksys has no security vulnerability email address anymore lol. less serious: The advanced wifi page that needs direct link to access has no 6ghz settings, I know this router is way more capable than it is as I have toyed with it and in the US region it disables DFS so if you are in a congested area your 5ghz will be horrible, not that your 2.4 will be much better as its automatic channel selector only works like once a month for all frequencies. to add to more, they deleted the telnet and ssh consoles from the firmware files, so you won't be accessing anything advanced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trash I have zero confidence in any help at this point. I have been on the phone for over an hour and hung up on the clown I was talking to. i just wanted to share that I have wasted over XXXX on this trash - it seems to be broke. I am going to go with another brand at this point which is sad because I have stood behind Linksys for over a decade using multiple products from you. This series is no good and support/customer care has gone to trash. I am going to share the poor experience online on every review platform I find and purchase another router with another company. Just sharing my insignificant voice with your company I know the company doesn't care! This is all, please share the complaint with your management team.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The linksys mobile app is Still down.. I bought this router about a week ago. I was unable to setup using the Linksys app. I had to use an ethernet connection. The app still errors out trying to find the router on the network. Per some posts I found on Reddit, this has been an ongoing issue for over a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Router for the Masses? I purchased this to replace an aging router from a different manufacturer. While this has faster speeds, and I like that it is mesh, and likely setup in a way the firmware is dummy proof, and made for dummies. I miss the days when you could look at the syslog, see who is port scanning, and active connections. I can't see that anymore, and have no idea if there are connections to\from servers that I need to look into, or much of anything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LIKE THE ROUTER; JUST HIGHLY DISLIKE THE SETTING The most impartment problem I have is I am unable to set the frequency/channel for the Wi-Fi and the channel finder does a VERY POOR JOB of finding a channel that does not have other users on the same frequency/channel. I would like to pick my own frequency/channel that no one is on. Also the WRT1900ACS had better settings and the back of the WRT1900ACS had more expandability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like it but don't love it. The good news: 1. Solid and reliable connections. 3. Has no issues with 30 Wi-Fi devices connected. 2. Fast Wi-Fi on 5G. The not so great news: 1. Nothing special about the range/coverage distances. 2. Nothing special about the 2.4G Wi-Fi speeds. 3. The phone app leaves something to be desired. I decided to attempt to upgrade my Luxul Epic 3 which is roughly four years old. I have quite a few Wi-Fi devices (around 30) in my small house and I wanted to insure reliable connections so I gave the Hydra 6E a chance. Initially I was very impressed by the 5G speeds and the number of devices it seems to effortlessly support. However after the first couple of weeks of use I started to realize there is nothing special about the range/coverage and there is nothing special about the 2.4G connection speeds either. I am about to reinstall my Epic 3 to verify my observations but I wish that I did not need to take this step. The MR 7500 is a good Wi-Fi router but I highly doubt it is the best in it's class.

vpn? Turn off ethernet lights?

Asked by: kimo9toe
Hi! The Linksys Hydra Pro 6E doesn't have a built-in VPN, but it supports VPN passthrough. Furthermore, the LED indicator, which signifies router activity or status, cannot be dimmed or turned off.

Just purchased but now I see all velop nodes here are cognitive mesh. Why don't they sell a compatible 6E intelligent mesh node????

Asked by: Mike529
Hi! We only have two Wi-Fi 6E intelligent mesh routers at the moment. https://www.linksys.com/mr7500---tri-band-axe6600-mesh-wifi-6e-router/MR7500.html https://www.linksys.com/mx8501---tri-band-axe8400-mesh-wifi-6e-router/MX8501.html

I just bought this router but it does not broadcast on the 6GHz band, the reason I bought it for. I have 2 6e devices that cannot connect to the band wait doesn't broadcast? Is there something wrong with my unit?

Asked by: Honestreviewer
Before you can see the 6GHz, you have to put separate names (SSIDs) for each band. You can do this in the desktop Linksys Smart WiFi. Your 6E devices will see all the SSIDs that you set (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6GHz). Other smartphones, not 6E, will only see 2.4 GHz and 5GHz.

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?

Asked by: KAZ145
That was my problem before. I got this router on Thanksgiving 2021 when it was still $550. I got it cheaper than now's price ... $250! I bought a HP laptop with WiFi 6 Intel WiFi AX-201. I tried to connect to the 6 GHz band, but won't see the 6 GHz! WiFi 6E - Extended! Any device that is WiFi 6E will connect to the 6 GHz band! I should have bought the laptop with Intel WiFi AX-210! iPhone 13 is WiFi6, but only connects to the 5 GHz band. I got the Google Pixel 6a and it is WiFi 6E. It can see the 6GHz if you have separate names (SSIDs) for each band. The 6 GHz band has a speed that is really awesome!

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
Yes, this router is tri-band: 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 Ghz. Just put one name (SSID) for all the bands and the router will decide depending on your device which band it will connect. Please note that there are other tri-band routers, but no 6 GHz band. There are only 2 5 GHz bands and the 2.4 GHz one. You can also put separate names (SSID) for each band. You can do this easily in the desktop Linksys Smart WiFi. Normally, all plugs and lights are 2.4 GHz and your smart phone or TV is 5GHz. If you have an smart phone (From Google Pixel 6a, not sure with iPhone. iPhone 13 is WiFi6 and not WiFi 6E, but can only use 5GHz band.) or any device that can connect to the 6GHz, the speed is really awesome!

I have a weather station whose web access has to be at 2.4ghz. Will this router be able to set up a WIFI network at 2.4ghz?

Asked by: Rpm79
Yes, to Grandpaherr. Or you can set up a name (SSID) for each band and you connect your weather station to the SSID with 2.4 Ghz.
