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 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 Problems UnLimited ! Linksys Hydra Pro 6E. MR7500. Purchased directly from LinkSys. Since day 1 .... we have had constant Problems. The Phones, TC, iPad all keep loosing Connectivity. We then have to remove the Network from the devices. And Reconnect to the LinkSys Hydra Pro 6E Router. For $499 .... this is an Expensive piece of Equipment that doesnot work. More Over when I called LinkSys Tech Support. They tries mant tines to change settings etc. The result is the same. The Phones, iPad, TV all loose Connection to the Network / Router. The Texch Suppot people at LinkSys are Quick to suggest to but a Node to add to then Network. Another $299. Well my Old LinkSys WRT3200 was solid, stable and worked ...... perfectly. Folks, save UR hard earned money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast wifi with some future proofing As with all the Linksys products I've used setup was quick and easy. I literally plugged it into the wall, plugged it into the modem, and with the linksys app connected to the router. Naming the 3 bands was easy in the app. The only issue I have is I can't hide the ssid, at least not in the app. The speed is great, the picture with the lower speed was across the street with my tablet. I did the test again later with my phone and got a much higher speed but didn't take a screen shot. The hydra pro 6e has eliminated dead spots anywhere on my property. I tested it with 10 devices connected with no noticeable drop in speed and with the three bands including 6ghz there's some future proofing.

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 Simple Setup, Great Features, Excellent Speed! Since receiving my Hydro Pro 6E in the mail, I have installed and used it for the past 2 weeks with excellent results! The setup process on this device was very quick and easy. I like the fact that I can use an app to check on the status of the device while I am away from the office as well! I have gigabit internet speeds and this device handles it with ease! All of my devices (over 9 of them in total) connect through this router and never seem to slow down at all, even while watching videos and sending files to the cloud simultaneously. I highly recommend this device to anyone who wants a secure connection, with blazing fast speeds and a completely easy setup.

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 2 out of 5 by from Returning this machine Bought the Hydra Pro 6E with great expectations. The model I finally received does not have the USB port described in the Linksys website. I bought this model based on specs . After trying in vain to reach support, disconnected four times, I have to return this equipment. I have always used Linksys products but this experience has changed my mind
