Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Device I have an approximately 3200 sqrft ranch with walkout home. This was placed near one end of my house in the basement. I do not have any devices that take advantage of WiFi 6 right now. Using the 2.4 and 5 GHz radios, I was able to get full or near full internet speeds from the same room and adjacent rooms, but from the far side of my house 45'+ it had dropped off to about half the speed. Setup was pretty easy. I don't have any other velop nodes, but this could easily cover a house that was more stacked than mine like a 2 story home with basement and a central location of the router. Still wish routers that were this expensive would include PoE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely Disappointing Setup was quite simple using the app, but the initial speed test on my Fios connection showed an incredibly poor upload speed of less than 15mbps. My previous EA9500 was getting over 900mbps as does the Velop MR5300. I posted to the Linksys community and was ready to start the laborious troubleshooting with Linksys support, but they seem to have changed the site and my original post is gone and I can’t even login. So I’ve RMA’d. Maybe others will have a better experience, but a $500 router shouldn’t be this bad. I’ve since installed a two node MX10 Velop system (2 MR5300s) and it’s working quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Router Setup was super simple using the Linksys app and I was up and running in a couple of minutes. Coverage is really great, it covered my 2 story house perfectly. Speeds over WiFi are really good on my devices. I only have 1 WiFi 6 device, which is an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Speeds were even better on that device. I’m also really glad the wan port can support up to 5 gigabit for the future. When all the devices that my family use are connected, this router is amazing at keeping up. The three dedicated bands 2.4ghz/5ghz/6ghz really help when many different devices are connected. Controlling the router through the app is simple and easy to do at home or away. Overall really great device that is ready for all the future WiFi 6 products you may have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean design, easy setup I paired this with my Velop system and checked performance. Setup though the app was a breeze and only took a few minutes. The speed test showed slightly faster upload speeds as just a node which is quite good. My next comparison will be between it and the MR9600 as the head of my system. So far, I'm very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speed This router is great for more devices and gamers. It is fast and easy to manage with the Linksys app. The range is not that great but is compatible with other mesh nodes and that extends with better range and speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The future of Routers is here This router is super fast. It can easily handle 50+ devices and multiple protocols. My last router suffer from speed but this router so far its been solid. I have multiple ZigBee and z-waves devices in addition to all my WIFI product and this router seen to be working perfect. I do live near an airport so I'm curious to see going forward ho it handle some of the interference.. I'm assuming since this have so many channel to choose from it should be ok. Setup of all Linksys router is super easy. This has never been issue for me or anyone of my friends and family. My only issue Im notice right now is that the range seen to be less than my last router.. I will continue to play with the channels to see if I can find a better one..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, faster, fastest! I was able to hook up this router up within five minutes without any issues! It has three bands, 2.4ghz, 5ghz and 6ghz. I only have one device that is 6ghz compatible and that is my iPhone12. The speed on the phone is noticeably faster than when I had my old router (linksys AX4200). I didnt have any complaints with the old, however the Hydra Pro 6E is faster, easier to set-up and seems to have slightly better range. I would highly recommend this product to people with larger dwellings. You can always add a Node to extend the range but out of the box I am able to have flawless streaming inside, outside and in the basement of my home. The last mentionable about the Hydra Pro 6 is that I am future proofed seeing how 6ghz was just approved for use by the FCC. The router is a little pricey, but the speed, set-up, functionality and future proofing all make it well worth the little extra money.
