Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Writing my review while using this router Using this router to write this review VIA WIFI. Super fast and great for streaming and playing games. All websites load up in less than 1 second. I am very "techy" and I really love this router to do my live videos. This is also great for multitasking and handle multiple tabs, games and video streaming like it was nothing. I also use this on my smart TV and apps work perfectly with no skips or buffering. I also get great range across the house to outside and play my music while grilling or just enjoying the fresh air. This is a great piece of hardware and I am sure you will love this as much as I do. This gets an A+++ from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast speeds! One word I have for this router, WOW! After recently installing a home security system that slowed down my wifi internet speed tremendously, I know it was time to upgrade my router. After using the standard router that was provided by the cable company, I am so glad we switched over to this gem. Having close to 20 devices using the wifi router, this Linksys router does its job and even more. My internet is now faster than ever before and we no longer have to worry about slow speeds when we have tons of devices running at once. On top of that, the installation process was seamless. 100% worth the investment if you plan on having multiple devices in your home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good wifi coverage Setup is quick, plug in, download app and go. However it would be better if they provided more instructions, specifically how to set up WITHOUT the app. The app lacks a lot of settings that you can change in the web interface, such as splitting the wifi bands, changing dns servers, disabling ipv6 just to name a few. Range wise, both bands do provide better coverage than my isp's modem/router combo. The external storage setup is really easy, plug in a usb drive to the router, and you can access it on most any device. I've tested it on a windows pc and an iphone and connecting to the network drive is straight forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast WiFi Router This router is extremely fast. I have a family of four and this handles all of our internet activity and streaming with ease. We have laptops, tablets, tv, and gaming systems hooked up and many running at the same time and the speed is incredible. The set up was really easy. I usually have trouble getting wifi in the back bedroom, but the range on this router is great and reaches across the house. I no longer have to worry about dead spots in my own home. Overall I am very happy with this product and most thrilled about the increased internet speed I am seeing. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Buckets This is a game changer. Let me start with the installation. I am far from being technologically ept. But the instructions were easy to follow, and I was ble to get it set up. We have a lot of tablets, a ps5, internet tv, laptops, and i work from home. Basically saying I have a ton of stuff going on at the same time. It was able to handle several devices, and it didn't slow down, in fact it was more efficient. I was able to get easy wifi access in other rooms i normally would have stalling or slow responses from wifi. It improved the speed. It was awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! The Linksys Hydra Pro 6 router is a huge improvement from my previous router. Devices using Wi-Fi 6 improve twice as much to achieve Wi-Fi 6 speeds, you do need to have a Wifi6 capable wireless adapter. If your device is not Wi-Fi 6 capable this router still outperforms the other routers, im a huge gamer and I need steady speeds with so many devices are connected to this router. 4 - phones 4 - laptops 2- gaming computers 3 - smart tvs All connected to the router without any issues, no slow down no lag speeds stay steady. I have connection to the router when im about half way down my street range is amazing. I work alot in my yard and my signle is just amazingly strong. Super easy to set up, easy to configure. Amazing product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing router I have been in the market for a new router than can handle all my devices with ease. Having four smart tvs, multiple fire sticks, multiple gaming systems and all of the iPhones and iPads throughout the house I knew I needed something new when I was having trouble with my fast speed. I have 1GB internet and had been reading reviews about this router. Throughout the past few weeks this router has been able to handle all my devices with ease. My favorite part about it has been the free linksys app that lets me control which devices have priority.

Specifications are subject to change without notice. An active, customer-purchased Internet Service Provider broadband account is required for connection of this product and other connected devices to the Internet. Some devices may require additional wireless adapters or an Ethernet cable to connect. Number of connected devices is based on lab test results and may be different for your network.

Maximum Performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance may vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, speed, range and coverage. Performance depends upon many factors, conditions and variables, including building materials and construction, volume of network traffic, mix of wireless products used, interference and other adverse conditions. In order to achieve the best performance, this product must be used with compatible AX5400 wireless devices. The standard transmission rates for each router—4804 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 574Mbps (for 2.4 GHz)—are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.

May require a software/firmware update available for download at linksys.com/support.

*Up to 4x more capacity as compared from 802.11ac to 802.11ax

**4.2x faster performance as compared to a 2x2 WiFi 5 router at 80MHz

Claims relating to reducing power consumption will vary depending on age of device, device storage conditions, device battery degradation over time, and other factors during use such as temperature, connected cables, discharge rate, and device type. In general, device batteries have limited recharge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced.

Each router in the wireless system provides a range of up to 2700 square feet (approximately 250 square meters). Range can vary with the number and placement of nodes in the system. Range specifications are based on performance test results under normal use case conditions. Actual ranges will vary depending on wireless interference, physical obstructions, operating environments and building material. Wireless coverage claims are used only as reference and are not guaranteed, as each wireless network is unique. Additional Nodes (available for purchase separately) may be required for especially large houses or buildings with thick or dense walls. Coverage of all homes cannot be guaranteed due to variations in size, layout, building materials and the level of wireless interference present.
