Reviews
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 Great looking, priced right, features you need... Packaging is well done and ships well (if buying it online) -- The router itself looks terrific, the mobile setup is about the best I've seen -- Connecting directly with browser (IP address) is easy and opens up to a lot of features one needs. WiFi 6 is coverage is excellent -- the router sitting on table in garage provides services through a fire door and up stories with ease and no drop outs -- I have it connected to gigabit internet to which it handles with ease. Gaming, its great -- easy to setup DMZ and port forward -- For Work, it handles connections very stable and its reliable -- We have a blend of devices that are new and WiFi6 with much older devices too. Connected Home -- garage door, nest, and all other devices connected really easy and with a good signal over the other brand X it replaced. It's a great looking Router, priced right, and has all features needed for work and play -- plus its linksys, a strong name in Routers, WiFi, and Networking...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kind of iffy been using this a little over a week and for the first few days it worked great then all of a sudden out of no where my laptop and tablets couldn't connect to the internet with this router so after going through everything I ended up calling support, after telling them everything I tried they just had me do a reset which worked..for a little while.the next day same thing so called support this time and they remotely fixed it and made some changes in the settings and firmware now working great so far.seems pretty fast and now stable, I'll keep updated as time goes on.

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 Nice Router I got this router a few weeks ago and so far I’m satisfied with it’s performance. Just like all Linksys routers it’s a breeze to setup, only took like 10 minutes max. That is I already have a Linksys account. Next I added some Velop nodes to cover my whole house which is also very easy just the same as setting up the initial router. I like that on this model they put the status light on the front of the unit compared to on the top of an older unit, that way I can see it because I keep my router up on a high shelf. Speed and all that seem very good I just wish I had faster internet to feed into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Router. I'm impress I'm very impress with this Router. This router have fix all the dead spot I have in my home.. Let me give you some details of what I like and Don't. Pros: 1 Easy setup. I know we heard this a lot but I actually put this into test. My wife really have no idea what a network or how to setup a network or router. So I gave it to her to see how easy the setup was really. I less than 5 min she was able to setup the router whit out any problems..( I did some additional setting ant the end) but overall an average person should be able to setup this router whit out any issues. 2 Easy transition from older router. This is very important to me. In the past I have setup difference router and even if I use the same network name, I still have to and add some of my devices again. ( Ring Doorbell been one of them). This is really time consuming and it is really something that I think before deciding to switch routers. With this router I did not have any issue with any of my devices. Just plug the router and all my devices where there. 3 WIFI 6 technologies. I currently have over 50 devices connected on average so I depend on speed and reliability. Due to Covy-19 I have to work from home now so I have to have a strong connection in order to do all my video conference, connect to the office and still have the need to have the kids watching their programing and video games.. My last router used MU-MIMO technologies and I did experience some issues once in a wild. With this router I have not seen any issue at all. The connection is strong and data transfer is SOLID. 4 Dynamic Frequency Selection. This is one of the best future if not my favorite. This is one of the main problem most of us have. The congestion of difference signal can affect our network. In my case I have around 8 other connection around me that I can see with my phone. Smart home devices add to this problem. I have Smarthings hub, so in addition to the 50+ Wifi devices, I have another 30+ devices that connect using either, Bluetooth, Z-Wave, ZigBee communication protocol so the congestion is the air is real. This router will scan and will utilize the best channel for you. In the past it was a trial an error process for me. I select a channel and wait a couple of days to see how it work. No more problems. 5 The signal range is AMAZING. I can now go to the park behind my house and I can still connect to my router. Its really amazing the improvement. 6 And if you still have problem with the range, you can expand since this is compatible with Mesh system. 7 The dual band seen to be performance better now. I have mix feeling about this. In the past I have had many issues with this. In this router so far its been working as it should. No drop of any connection or internet issue in any device. Will update if this become an issue in the future. 8 Same power connection port as older model. This seen little but is the details that make the difference. Having multiple cables, devices. Etc. I have put all my cables in specific places. Having to take out and put a new cable in its really hard. So been consistence with this type of thing make my life very easy. No need to change my cable, just remove the old router and connect the new one. THANK YOU FOR THAT 9 Security and control. This I hope its a standard future but I do depend a lot of turn it off the internet to devices from my kids. Its very easy and straight forward here. Cons: 1 The application interface can improve. One improvement I will love to see is the ability of searching for devices using MAC-Address. When having to many devices it hard to identified each one of them. So if I'm able to search for maybe a couple of digits of the MAC-Address That will make my life way easier. 2 Another thing to keep in mind is that you will have less option of setup if you are using your phone or tablet to setup the router. SO for the advance user like me I have finish my setup using the computer. For example, if I want to separate the 4.5GHz and the 5GHz I have to go to the computer since this is not available in the application. So overall this is a SOLID router for this time. Very easy to deploy and to use. The average person will have 0 problem with this router. Investing in this router its a no brainer. Will make your life easier and you network better. For long time.

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 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.
