Rated 2 out of 5 by from A lot of SW bug This is the first time I use Linksys device. However, experienced a lot of issue. Keep mixing name from device to device and make it hard for parental control. Talked to support team but still do not have any resolution. Some other issue like cannot use static routing to redirect traffic the router instead of device can bypass

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exemplary Value and Operation This is a uncompensated review of the Linksys Atlas Max 6E Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6E System. I found the equipment to be of exemplary value and operation. The unit proved to be exceptionally functional and easy to setup and use. I found it to be a valuable extension to my present WiFi setup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I received it as a free sample. It worked as expected. I am not a fan of this product as I don't understand the risks to being hacked or how to use it securely. It is not something I found useful in my everyday life. It was well built and worked properly. It had a nice design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extended help I received a the Tri-Band Mesh Wifi 6E System to try out and write a review for. It works amazing and has helped us be able to access the wifi whether we are on the first floor of our house or the third. It also lets us use the wifi in the backyard and detached garage.

But I was happy that This was easy to set up and seems to help with my connection keeping it more stable and consistent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding This product was nicely packaged. Everything you needed to get this product up and running was in the box. This Linksys Atas Max 6E (AXE8400) is a dual node mesh Wi-Fi networking system. What is 6E you ask, basically it means that 6GHz band offers twice the bandwidth of 5GHz band. I must admit that I own the previous version (MX10) of this product except it has nodes. This system is very simple to get setup and running. Once you download the app it walks you through each step and it really doesn’t take but about 10-15 minutes to get it up and running. I actually kept my Wi-Fi name and password the same so that all my devices would just connect automatically. I only had one device that I had to reenter the Wi-Fi name and password. If you are a previous owner of the Velop system (like the one I mentioned above) then it is good to note that the new system is compatible with the old system. What does that mean? Well, it means that this system is backward compatible with the old system and will also work with the new system. You can use the old nodes to help further extend your Wi-Fi if you wanted. I have found that the 3 nodes were very similar to the 3 nodes that I used to have. Performance was excellent. With my old system I was getting speeds around 290Mbps down and 24Mbps up wirelessly. As soon as I got this system up and running I immediately tested it and it far exceeded my expectations. I tested this in all the remote areas of my 3000+square ft home. All in all, this router is probably the best one I have utilized in a long time.
