Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speeds! The Linksys Atlas is a nice piece of equipment for expanding my home network wifi coverage. It's worth mentioning I was given a sample to write this review. This setup was very simple. You download the app and it walks you through each step. I was up and running in 10-15 minutes. Speed is incredible. I have GHz Fios service but only getting a fraction of that speed from my other extenders. I'm getting 850/950 mgps and solid coverage throughout my home. Another new feature that I really liked is the addition of 4 Gigabit LAN ports. I use this for hardwiring some of my devices. I don't see malware protection, which would be one nice add-on for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable and rock solid performance I am using the Linksys Atlas Max 6E as a standalone router. My son is very pleased with hard wired performance to his PC gaming rig while I am enjoying clutter free wifi for all my Mac centric gear at wired speeds. Wishlist: Add Apple HomeKit and Time Machine support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product I received this product for free in order to write this review. Overall, I think it's a good product. For the most part, I haven't had any issues. Connection has been solid and the speed has been fine. It's only two of us here, so I wasn't expecting to see a huge difference with this. The only issue I've had was getting my friend connected. It looks like the app allows you to send guest log in information to guests. I tried this, but my friend wasn't able to connect via the text. I had to manually connect them. Other than that, no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MX8500 issue with FIOS Gigabyte plan I am still being passed btwn 1st level and 2nd level technicians for this issue. My speeds on a gigbyte plan are only 150 and 200Mbps. I have spend 2 days with Verion to have router and ONT box replaced. I have spend 3 days on the phone with Level 1 and 2 Linkysys technicians and still am waiting for a call back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast! I received this item free in exchange for my honest review. This item was easy to set up an use which is normally an issue for me. It also makes things run really fast an you can have different things connected to it at once without slowing things down a bit. It's that easy. We don't do any gaming but we use multiple devices an need to run the occasional Netflix all at once an live out in the country so for what we need the speeds are great an work well for what we need to get things done.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poco compromiso con el consumidor Hace mas de un mes compre este producto, uno de los nodos no funcionaba bien y todavia estoy esperando que realicen alguna accion para cambiarlo. No se fian del consumidor y he mandado mi producto donde me han dicho. ellos no hacen nada. Si teneis un problema qualquier numero de atencion es de tarificacion especial y la respuesta esta en el otro lado del mundo. Te hacen esperar para alargar la llamada, es indecente!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to set up. I received a free Linksys Atlas Max 6E Tri Band Mesh Network in exchange for my honest review. Overall the system was easy to set up but ultimately it didn’t work well with my fiber optic internet service. Check with your internet service provider prior to purchasing this network.
