Easy to get started
Very fast on both bands
Just open the package was a sight to behold! Really good build quality on the router.
Currently have a Linksys EA6900 but gave it to the parents because wanted this.
+ Grim Range
+ Stylish industrial design
+ Really great speed.
+ Smart Wifi like I was even on my old router.
+ Installation was super easy.
- The price a little high, perhaps? But okay, do not buy the router every day so have to live with it.
Not had time to test it super great but really happy so far.
++++ Update: Seems like there are OpenWRT firmware is available now at least. Not tested myself though: https://github.com/wrt1900ac/opensource +++++
+! +! +! +! + A further update: Now there are really nice software to WRT1900. Read more here: http://wiki.openwrt.org/toh/linksys/wrt1900ac +! +! +! +! +
Bought it as a replacement for my Asus RT-N66U then I thought it was too bad (WLAN suspect it was wrong on my RT-N66U) and Linksys are said to have good WiFi. I have now found that it is equivalent RT-N66U when it comes to coverage. However, this is a pain to connect to. 5GHz is OK but the 2.4GHz demanded contact with support and manual setting to connect to! Disaster!
The speed is very shaky, and for the most part considerably worse than the RT-N66U. I get between 2Mbit / s and 58MBit / s on Bredbandskollen. Usually slightly higher up than down.
5GHz is somewhat stable at around 30MBit both up and down.
My 5 years old laptop is however a bottleneck. However, the RT-N66U is fairly constant 45MBit / s both up and down.
With cable do I get 95Mbit both up and down which is the same as RT-N66U. I have 100/100 line'll surely added.
I have a media player that ever lost touch with the old router. Even with a repeater connected. With WRT1900AC drop it less often and catch up again, which was not the case with RT-N66U.
The conclusion is that the only thing I got that I have not already had the 2500kr this cost was USB3 and eSATA, which I certainly appreciate, but it is not worth 2500kr! It has advantage of Gigabit networking is the more interesting but I think there are several less expensive options to consider.
My sent back to Dustin where I bought it and from there on to the service. Has now for about a month with a brand new one. Doubtful if I will unpack it when I totally lost confidence in the ...
Saw that a user has've have exactly the same problem with a Linksys EA6500. As Linksys has problems with (some of) their routers.
There are better routers on the market today that also costs less so my advice is to stay away from this. [/ EDIT]
After failing to sell it I switched it. Original firmware was as bad at this as the I got replaced.
Installed OpenWRT Chaos Calmer r45557 and a new world opened up! With this firmware works router really well with overall better world than I did with the RT-N66U! Too bad that you have to have a little habit of Linux to install it. There is nothing for the average home user uninterested.
IOM that the hardware is good, I raise the grade slightly. But not to the Linksys themselves can build together a firmware that works is scandalous, embarrassing and frightening and pulls down the grade! [/ EDIT 2]
Could not hold me, it was time for AC and this was the router that appealed to me the most. Lacking nothing so far.
Adds rating of 9 so far and if stability holds, it will be a 10a.
Sick kaxig design!
