Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Easy Install The linksys MX5 was an extremely simple install. This unit replaced a WRT3200ACM router which worked well, but wow the MX5 is awesome. I have a strong signal in every spot in my house. Absolutely no dead spots. The wifi speed is also allot faster throughout my house making my streaming experience much more enjoyable. We stream everything at my house, no cable tv, and the MX5 handles it great. With multiple laptops, Ipad, Iphones, etc. using wifi ive had no slowdown/buffering. Just a heads up, the MX5 unit is large. Very happy with the new wifi system. Great job Linksys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tech support and replacement for Netgear Recently had a problem with the internet cutting in and out requiring to reboot my Netgear R7800 router several times a week. Very frustrating that it had suddenly defaulted every time to factory settings, having to go through initial setup, reset ID, passwords, etc. Obvious known issue with the hardware but since owning the R7800 more than 90 days, only free support was through Netgear Community or pay their ridiculous live support fee. After a few weeks trying to resolve gave up and so happy to have found Linksys, a company that stands behind their products! Free 24/7 support and MX has been rock solid! Only complaint are the logs are not as detailed as Netgear missing some info along with date and time stamps. Other than that Linksys was the best decision of all the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works through reinforced concrete block We had struggled to have a whole house system where the signal remained strong for 2 years. Installed this system and we have full strength signals in every room and out into the yard. This house is built with reinforced concrete bock due to seismic requirements and this system is the first one that has covered the whole property with full reception. We could not ask for more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre connectivity I got the Linksys Velop MX5300 to extend the mesh net of Linksys Velop routers that I currently have as our home is multiple levels with thick walls / floors. I made this the primary node, which was likely a mistake, as this new node has made our internet worse. Connectivity is unreliable and many of our smart appliances and security sensors regularly stop responding, which was not an issue before. I only gave this three stars because it did connect somewhat easily, and the range is further (although it is less reliable now in areas where it used to work well). For this price point, I expect much better performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’m glad I added this to my network. The rep I spoke to said this was much stronger then my current system which is also a Linksys velope 3 node. He wasn’t kidding. I have coverage throughout my 2 floor 2600 sf home. Using this as the mother node and the others as child nodes gives me good speeds throughout my home including my yard. Highly recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MX 5300 is a great addition! The MX 5300 is a great addition as a mother node and my child nodes are now much more stable. I highly recommend this Linksys product.

How many client devices are supported?

Asked by: NikiJules
Hi! Ideally, it is recommended to connect up to 32 wireless devices per radio band. This way, every device can play nice, and your network's performance and stability stay in top shape. But, if we max out the DHCP range, you can actually connect more than 100 devices in your network, via Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

Does MX5300 can work with MR9600’s wifi6 mesh? 1. I have a wifi6 mesh composed of two MR9600, can MX5300 join? 2. After MX5300 joining Wifi6 mesh, can the FTP Server and Media server (DLNA) functions of MX5300 be used?

Asked by: Jchiu
Hi, Jchiu. The Linksys MX5300 is compatible to work with your existing MR9600 mesh system. However, please know that the MX5300 doesn’t support FTP server and Media server. To know more about the device, please click this link for your reference:

Parental controls do not appear to work on this router. I have times set to block internet access to my daughters devices and she is still able to use device.

Asked by: CSmith
Interesting question. I love my router but I have never seen any parental control set ups there. As far as I know you need to do that on each of the child devices not the router. The router just feeds the signal in to all devices so you would not set up blockers there. Just at the individual users devices. Good luck, Andrew

Any update on Homekit Integration? Over the last year I have moved entirely to Velop in my house and Homekit would be the cherry on the top

Asked by: DannyT
Hi, DannyT. There are no words yet on the Linksys MX5300 to support Apple Homekit. The integration works with the following devices only: A03x WHW0301 WHW0301B WHW0302 WHW0302B WHW0303 WHW0303B MX4200 MX8000 MX8400C MX12600
