Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This router was much needed. We had a basic one that our internet provider gave us and the basic one just couldnt keep up with our needs. This router was so very easy to set up. I went with using the app to get it going and the app was wonderful and quick. Its an easy process to get it going and configure the name and password. it covers our whole house and even our backyard with ease. Havent had any issues and im happy with it. I immediately connected all of our devices afer getting it set up and it has had no issues with what we have connected. Gives a good strong signal. Im very happy we got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!!! We just moved into our new home and wanted enough wifi and best options possible and we got this because we need the speed, reach and all while my husband works from home, plays live streams while being active in world of Warcraft then our daughters with their tablets and myself…. We clearly needed the best option we could find. Unboxing was quick and easy! This feels so light it’s quite the change for us and we were impressed with how sleek and compact for easy placement not taking up much space. This is definitely our replacement! Totally worth it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely fast router So I been using this for the past few days now and I must say that this is one extremely fast router. Can stream movies in just a few seconds woth no buffering. When I play my games I notice that it doesn't buffer or drop frames. I can go outside or to my friends house a few doors down and I am still on my wifi network. I play my music outside a lot when I barbecue and I was tired of not having my wifi connected as soon as I went outside. Linksys has always made a quality product and I will continue purchasing their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't had a chance to use it yet. I received my free sample of the Linksys-Hydra 6: Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 Routee only yesterday so I really haven't had a chance to use it yet. I hear great things about it and my daughters boyfriend was excited when he saw it. Do I have high hopes.
