Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go with the best, forget the rest !! Been using linksys products for over 13 years. No matter if its for business or home use you can't go wrong. This particular router works awesome for those whom are Gamers, HD Movie Lovers and for Wireless Networking. The new smart app it uses to utilize the robus settings it has, along with having multiple networks, as in guest and your own, not to mention the level of control you have over the router from any location you might be at the time you need to make an adjustment. Love linksys, love their products. For best results for cable high speed users, purchases the linksys modem, along with using internet speeds of atleast 25mbps or greater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the finest routers on the market This routers is worth so much more than Linksys is charging for it. It is one powerful router with great connectivity all in a very compact form factor. You can simply plug up a USB device or hard-drive and it instantly makes it available to your home network. I've never had it disconnect and the software and custom settings let you really control how it functions. It even lets you pick certain program to have priority bandwidth (i.e. Netflix)so that you have uninterrupted viewing no matter how many others are on the network. The app is so great that you can view all the settings and even whos connected right there on your tablet or phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite One For me EA4500 is a very good router. It performs what was promised. I like how it gives me strong signal . The router should be place on a higher location to broadcast a very good signal. I am amaze with the wireless speed of the router as well. Not all wireless devices maybe running on same technology as what the router has but it gives reasonable wireless speed. Of all the router that Linksys made , this is my favorite one. Well, not all consumers may have same experience as what I had with this router. But for me this router is good if you have a large house , gaming devices, entertainment devices aside from computers . I chose this router because this one fits for my network.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never have to reset I had an old linksys router and added a wireless N Bridge and thought I was saving money and being smart. I couldn't have been more wrong as I would have to reset it by unplugging the router waiting 20 seconds and plug it back in repeatedly over its life. I just assumed you had to do this with every router. The other problem I had was the speed of my other wired computers as I never understood why they weren't faster. All problems solved as the gig switch in the router makes my wired devices scream and I have never rebooted the router since install in December. Now I can travel without having the family call and tell me the wireless is down.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't re-boot after power interruption Have owned the EA4500 for just over 13 months. Setup and speed fine, but became increasingly difficult to get the device to re-boot after a power interruption. Tried all fixes suggested in online community postings, none of which worked consistently. Basically now have to leave it powered down for several hours before it will re-boot, but often takes several tries. Of course the problem started after the free 90 tech support ran out and now the warranty has expired. Tried installing the firmware update and now won't re-boot at all. Logo light just blinks continually and the device will not reset. Previous router was Linksys WRT54G and was never a problem. Gave that one to my parents and its still running fine. Replaced it with the EA4500 that has never lived up to the reliability of the WRT54G. This has become too much trouble and now shopping for a new router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster and longer range We previously were using the WRT610N. Because of where our cable service is located it was set up at one end of the house. The far end suffered horribly with very poor wireless signal. We finally had enough and purchased the E4500. The set up software, as usual, failed to set up the router. I've never been able to get the LINKSYS/CISCO set up software to work. I had to reset it and log in directly to set up the router. No big deal since I'd done it 10+ times on other models. Once we got it manually configured, signal strength improved drastically. The far end of the house would get 20+/- Mbps or less, now it's at least 54. A definite HARDWARE improvement, the set up software needs improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router I have about a 7 year old Linksys WRT54GX that I decided to upgrade with the EA4500. I really didn't think that my speeds would increase dramatically because the WRT54GX router is B/G capable and my cable service only provides up to 20 Mbps downloads. I have been incredibly impressed by the performance of the EA4500 during the short amount of time that I have had it. My download speeds have increased by quite a bit and more importantly, the lag that I used to experience while remote accessing my work computer has disappeared. This is a fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Wonderful device. Every device at home I use is blazing fast with speed. My galaxy s3 in wifi gets up to 50mbs download and almost 50mbs up. I bought a new network card for my comp. Now I'm gettng 180-200mbs download and 40-50mbs up. This router has more than enough power to supply that speed. I then bought a network switch and threw it in the living room. Ran an ethernet cable from the router to the living room plugged it into the switch and now my ps3 and samsung led smart tv are full of speed through the switch and this great router. My isp is cox and I guess having the fastest speed sometimes is too much or unnecessary but I luv fast internet and a fast router. Thanks Linksys ea4500
