Rated 2 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For I purchased this e8450 router with the intent to future proof my home network. I have found a mixed bag of good and bad (read as misleading) things with this e8450 router. The good: odd low price works OK with what it does support attractive in appearance takes up a small footprint appears to be well built very easy to setup Nice and fast when in range No longer requirers you to setup/login to a Linksys account* The bad: low price – this should have been a dead giveaway of what is not supported. range is a bit weaker when directly compared to a lower-mid range ea7300 model router, a 2015 ea8500 blows the e8450 out of the water. No USB 3.0 port, you only get a 2.0 port – note: 3.0 came out November 2008 This e8450 router is sold as having the latest superior WiFi 6 (802.11ax) standard. The truth is it only has part of the WiFi 6 standard. In fact, it doesn't even have a full complement of the older WiFi 5 (802.11ac) that it was supposed to replace for complete backward compatibility. It was found that the e8450 was missing both the channel widths 80 & 160MHz (only supports WiFi 4's 20 & 40MHz standard of 2009). When Linksys was pressed they would not disclose any other features that they may have omited from the new WiFi 6 standard. In closing, if you are looking for a router that will get you by for a year or two then go for it. But if you want a router that you can grow into as you update all devices to WiFi 6 then look elsewhere. *You did have the option to skip this part but very few users noticed that option and felt they did not have a choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers Our Whole House Excellent Wi-Fi 6 ax router for the cost. Ok price. Fast if you are close to the router. Full 2.4 GHz signal all over our house. Medium coverage for 5 GHz band. 2.4 GHz travels farther. No dead spots with the 2.4 GHz band. We have this router in the basement, so that can be the reason for the 5 GHz band not reaching everywhere. We have a small house with an upstairs and basement.
