Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Could Not Be More Happy With This Router Though we have not had the Linksys WiFi Router Dual-Band AC1200 installed for a very long period of time, we are extremely pleased with the operation of this router so far. It was very easy to install and set-up. We have a 2500 square-foot 2-story house and approximately a 1/4 acre yard, and we comfortably get wifi coverage wherever we need it. We have 13 separate devices throughout our home that are connected to the router and the signal is strong and constant. We have experienced no issues thus far that would discourage us from recommending this product to our friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality device The AC1200 is a basic wifi router that has all the features that a home user would need. It's simple to configure, has parental controls, etc. The wifi signal was strong and stable during my testing. My only suggestion is that they should have some indicator lights to show if the device is getting an internet signal, if wifi is enabled, etc. The only lights on it are for the lan and internet ports, and they're hard to see when you have several network cables plugged into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys AC1200 Router This router was easy to use and set up. I have always preferred Linksys products in my home and business due to the easy set up and reliability. This one seems to have great range and we had no issues connecting numerous devices to it with a household full of kids. It has a small foot print as well and has four ethernet ports. This is nice as many manufacturers have been cutting this down to two or so lately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for This is a great router for the price. Let me start with setup. I did not have the easiest time with setup but that's because I already have the Linksys EA7500 so every time I tried to access the setup on my pc it would bring me to the EA7500 page even though it wasn't plugged in. I will say when I switched to my phone setup was really easy, a few steps and I was online. I got the speed I should get and the range was decent (obviously not as good as the EA7500). Now with that said I switched it to wireless bridge mode to connect my older smart tv to wifi. This was not an easy task because every time I tried on the 5 GHz channel, to get faster speeds, it would reset itself out of bridge mode. After trying several things I settled on the 2.4 GHz channel and it worked but only to 50 mbps which should be fine for streaming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for a smaller group of wireless users The Linksys AC1200 Model E5400 is a small footprint, if you are one of those WRT54G user, this Linksys is about half the height, in smaller footprint. The GUI is straight forward, easy to navigate and with all of the Linksys (Cisco) or Linksys (Belkin), the menu are well placed and you DO NOT need any manuals to get this working. It uses 2.4 and 5.8Ghz, and both are good, although I would say that the 2.4 band have a little bit farther reach than the 5.8Ghz For a small apartment, say 2 bedroom, 2 floors, this will be a perfect router. For a larger home, if you have say multiple users, multiple rooms, you will not be happy with this. Linksys is a strong brand that I have personally used from it being Linksys (Linksys) and Linksys (Cisco), and finally into Linksys (Belkin)... My 'like' level for Linksys in a scale of 10, I would go for 8.5 for good Practical product. For durability, I can got for 9.9, over more than 20+ years of Linksys, I have not seen one broken. Linksys is one brand that never dies, and just fade away... Cheers!
