Rated 4 out of 5 by from SMALLER BUT NOT BETTER MR9600 is a nice design. However, I don't like what they did under the hood. Linksys removed the ability to select the channel range and tech (AX, AC, or N). The Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream™ AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit WiFi Router offers better range and control. It's a lot bigger for sure. I'm going to keep this router with the hope there will be updates to improve the overall range signal and the ability to select the tech and channel. This is teh main reason people like me buy the touter vs the MESH solution. We want advance controls to link devices to the latest tech. We're not looking for only a MIXED option. We are tech savvy & want control of our router!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast router This router comes with new and great features such as adding another router to extend WiFi Coverage. The router is extremely powerful and streams without any issues. I have placed the router in the basement and my home is 4600 sqft. I get signal until the end of my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and Great Coverage The Linksys MR9600 was really easy to set up with their smart phone app. It guided me through everything and was up and running within minutes. The range of the router is great, I have a 2 story house just under 3000 square feet and I get coverage everywhere that my family needs. I only have 1 device that supports WiFi 6 but I’m expecting to get more as products become more readily available. It’s just great knowing this router will be ready to handle the next generation of WiFi technology. I also love the file sharing aspect of this router. It has 2 usb 3 ports and can easily share my files with any device connected to the network. Overall it’s been a great router and going to be even better as I get more WiFi 6 devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast router! This router was so easy to set up I think an extremely technically challenged person could set it up with no issue. I replaced an older Linksys router and used the same SSID and password as my old router. All 25 of my network devices connected right away and have been running seamlessly. The range of this router is very impressive. Sitting at the fire pit in the backyard seems no different than sitting right in front of the router. I am very happy with this router and love the fact that it is so easy to expand the network (mesh) and have the best performance possible in all areas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lower upload speed don't buy it. I have a Verizon Fios Gigabit internet speed but this new router I'm getting significantly lower upload compared to Linksys WRT32AC. I've tested the speed from various range of WiFi Ax devices and results are same across all of those devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and fast network Looks: This router has a nice anesthetic with a sleek look. It looks like it belongs more than my previous router. It fits into the modern setup and doesn't stick out. Setup: Set was incredibly easy with the Linksys app. It will walk you through the set up so that you will have no problems with getting your network up and running within about 10 to 15 minutes. Performance: Single strength is strong through out my property and I am able to stream music and 4K video to several different devices within the house without any issues. Online game play has little to no lag and is taking full advantage of my internet speed. Transferring files across my network to my cloud device is fast and reliable as well. This is an excellent router if you are looking into one that can handle a large area and a large amount of devices reliably. This will handle everyone's phones, TV, computers, gaming consoles, and other devices without any issues or slowing down of the network. This product was received free for review purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ascetically Pleasing with Great Range! I received this product as part of Linksys's Family & Friends testing. The design of this router is incredible and it stands out from previous models. The router does not run too warm, has 4 ethernet ports in the back for wired connectivity. Setup only took 5 minutes via my iPhone. The app is simple to use and very friendly. What I really enjoy about this router is the range capability. I get full wifi coverage across my garden which involve a cinder block wall. The antennas are adjustable to point them in different directions if needed. The top design of the router has a grill feature to ventilate air, hence, the router does not run hot, which is amazing. There is a blue LED on the front that acts as a status indicator. The router was setup in my network closet on a high shelf. I get full wifi coverage past 2 cinder block walls. One of the fastest router setups I have done. Highly recommend for larger coverage area because since it is mesh technology, you can additional had nodes to extend it if needed. This router alone is perfect for home use with more network speed capabilities. WiFi-6 device that can handle so many devices, perfect for an IoT environment in family homes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router The router was extremely easy to configure and attach to my current Linksys mesh router. Once completed and installing the Linksys app, the configuration was a snap. I checked coverage throughout my house (2700 sq. ft.) and coverage was amazing nothing less than 80%.
