Linksys AC1200 Dual Band Smart WiFi Router


The AC1200+ WiFi Router features dual wireless bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with data speeds up to N300 Mbps + AC867 Mbps*, great for media-intense applications such as video streaming and online gaming.

Four Gigabit Ethernet ports make it easy to share data quickly across your network, and to external devices - at speeds 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Plus, use the high-performance USB 3.0 port** to attach a storage device and quickly transfer large files or share devices across your WiFi network.


Beamforming focuses the WiFi signal directly to your smartphones, tablets, and laptops instead of sending out a general transmission. The result is a more efficient network with a wider range.

When your device doesn't have to work as hard to receive data, it means not only greater efficiency for you, but also a longer battery life for your connected devices.



With the Linksys Smart WiFi App, you can closely monitor and manage your home WiFi remotely using a smartphone or tablet.

  • Guest Access: Create a separate, password-protected WiFi network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password.
  • Parental Controls: Ensure a safe Internet experience for your kids -- even when you're away from home. Restrict access to inappropriate or distracting content, control usage, and block specific devices from accessing the Internet.
  • Device Prioritization: You can prioritize devices that need the most speed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linksys EA6300 WiFi router- Difficult to set up ??? The linksys wifi router I purchased recently came with everything needed to go wireless in my home. The instructions and instalation disk were easy to understand and well laid out I had no problems and had it all set up in less than thirty minutes. The router itself has a low profile so you are able to tuck it away or just leave it on your desktop as it takes up very little desk space.There were more expensive units with less features but I am very pleased with this models performance. Having used linksys products in the past and never experiencing difficulties with them, I would recommend linlsys products to my friends...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple Installation on Windows 10 I bought this router several weeks ago and I was impressed as to how simple it was to setupl. Just 3 simple steps to follow and it automatically did the configuration on my windows 10 desktop and laptop computers. I simply had to just accept the default values and everything worked. I have had zero problems with this router and I had no problems connecting my HDTV, my Smart Thermostat, smartphone, and tablet to this router. It is the easiest router, both wired and wireless, that I ever owned as far as getting it installed and setup. Performance is as advertised. Pleasantly surprised that I had no compatibility issues with windows 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Router Ever! We've been Comcast customers for years & have had less then satisfactory service with regards to internet connection. We've gone through at least half a dozen routers (& even an all-in-one router/modem). Day after day, we would have to re-boot our computers &/or reset router/modem. So very, very frustrating. After doing a comprehensive comparison search, we decided on purchasing the Linksys EA6300 Smart WiFi Router AC1200 Dual Band 802.11ac. Unit was installed about a month ago and with great assistance from Linksys technical help. We've been problem-free. WiFi/Internet reception is excellent! Thank you Linksys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Refreshing Change of Pace! This is my first Linksys router. Been an avid NetGear fan for many many years but after our last RangeMax router gave us grief for several months before upgrading to a NetGear N750 dual band router. Unfortunately the first Netgear N750 only lasted 14 days and the replacement only lasted 4 days. Maybe its time to give something else a try? SO I made the move to Linksys and have been thrilled. Router has great range,stong signal, super web/app interface and best of all doesn't constantly drop connections and have to be rebooted multiple times a day like the Netgear's did. Thrilled with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well... At Least As An Access Point Using a few of these as AP's throughout the house. Wifi signal is good in every corner. However, setting these up as AP's was not as simple as it should have been. I was not able to plug directly into each router with an ethernet cable to change settings. Every time I tried, I was forced to set up a "Smart WiFi Wireless Router" account. Instead I had to connect to each router using its unique wireless ID and password. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but it wasn't obvious how to get around or disable the "Smart ... Router" feature. However after they were all setup as AP's with the same WiFi name and Password I have not had any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Pleased I have been using this router for about 2 weeks now, and it is everything I expected it to be. Smart Wi-fi is the way to go. I love having so much control over my network, even when I'm not there. I live in a schmedium sized house, and the range and speed are phenomenal. Be sure to research the different types of routers available to find what is best for you, because some routers can out do your ISP by far, but you will unnecessarily pay more for speeds you don't have access to. However, my EA 6300 AC 1200 seems to be the perfect fit for streaming movies and TV as well as online gaming at around 60mbs. I haven't had any issues with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance except.... I'm not sure about how others feel about our wireless connection security issues, But being educated in the communications field I know just how easy it is to hack into someone's wireless connection. I would like to see someone develop a modem that can serve as a wired switch with wireless capabilities that can be turned off and on with a push button. for the times when you are not using it. But still maintain the wired connection. I think this would greatly improve our confidence in the security of our internet connections..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EA6300 V1 Excellent Works perfectly I recently installed this wireless Router conected directly to Verizon Fios cable (no Modem). If you check the back of the EA8300 you can tell it's version number plus you may notice that this is in fact a EA6400 Router. So you are getting a free upgrade. Read the EA6400 Specs. All that being said setup was very easy using the (Linksyssmartwifi.com)software using my web browser. This will give you access to all the functionality. Because I have some dead spots around the house I also installed a Linksys RE1000 Range Extender giving me full access to wifi. I hope this helps someone out

*The standard transmission rates—450 Mbps or 1300 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 300 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz), 54 Mbps, and 11 Mbps—are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used.
**Up to 2.8x faster physical data rate when compared to 802.11n Wi-Fi routers using two antennas to transmit and receive data. Actual speeds will vary depending on a number of factors. In order to achieve the best performance, router must be used with a compatible AC867 wireless device.
†May require a software/firmware update available for download at linksys.com/support.
