Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable, fast and easy to set up. My old Linksys wifi router (WRT310N) lasted me for 12 years and I was satisfied by its performance but all good things comes to an end eventually. I bought the Linksys EA5800 AC100 as a replacement and the signal broadcast is a notch stronger. The wifi setting interface and security options are imroved and simplified. With the dual band connectivity (2.4 ghz and 5 ghz) and a separate guest connectivity youll have more bandwith to work on. Just know if your computer wireless adaptor supports the 5 ghz bandwidth. One of my laptop wireless adaptor only has 802.11b/g/n, a standard wlan for 2,4 ghz and cannot detect the 5 ghz. So just a food for thought, make sure your wireless adaptor supports the 2.4 and 5 ghz bandwith so you can utilize this awesome tool to the fullest and again, it is awesome!
