Routers are the life and soul of the media party in many modern households. They are also under an ever increasing demand to deliver high definition media content to multiple devices simultaneously. Whether this be for streaming TV, gaming online, ...

Maybe it was because of a vendor advantage, with the client station we used for testing also from Linksys, but the EA6500 blew through our tests faster than any other router we looked at. At its top speeds it was rivalling Gigabit Ethernet for data rates...

Five years ago, we didn't have homes with a dozen wireless nodes and the need to run HD video to multiple screens. Today we do. Our 802.11n networks, especially on the 2.4 GHz band, are swamped. Can 802.11ac save the day? We test six routers to find...

The Linksys EA6500 offers 802.11ac support, a clean and easy interface, simple FTP access to attached USB drives, and it even ships with an NFC card containing its pre-determined wireless settings. It proved to be a reliable router during our tests,...

Cisco arrived late to the 802.11ac party, but its Linksys EA6500 (it's hard to say the entire name—the Linksys Video Pro AC1750 Smart Wi-Fi Router EA6500—in a single breath) is a solid, easy-to-use dual-band router with one unique, gee-whiz feature.That...

So far this is the only 802.11ac router we'd think about recommending, but even so, unless you're convinced of the need to future-proof yourself we'd hold off at least until laptop and desktop adaptors have made an appearance. The standard isn't due to...

The 'EA' in the Cisco Linksys EA6500 stands for Enabled App, which means this 802.11ac router runs the Cisco Connect Cloud firmware, with apps to access it remotely. The number of available apps is still very limited, but the service is relatively young...

The networking world is edging towards a new, faster Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac. Although the specification is still in ‘draft' form, Cisco is shipping a router and matching bridge that take advantage of the new technology in order...

The Cisco Linksys EA6500 made a good impression. Cisco clearly spent a lot of time and effort on the interface. Creating QoS rules is very easy to do, and much more user-friendly than on most other routers. Cisco listened to customer feedback about the...

The Linksys EA6500 has the potential to be a great router, but for now it'd still be a bad deal even at half its current...

By Trusted Reviews on 90

The Linksys EA4500 is one of our favourite routers, but we found it lacked one key ingredient: 802.11ac. At the time it was a somewhat unfair criticism since this next generation networking standard had yet to be released, but the fact remained...

International Review By Chip.de on 89

Besonders überzeugt der Linksys-Router mit seiner ac-Leistung auf Distanz. Er erreicht hier genau 154 MBit/s und lässt damit den größten Teil der Konkurrenz hinter sich. Im n-Betrieb steht er nicht ganz so glänzend da, die...

Cisco Linksys er også en af de nye ac-routere, men designet er der intet nyt over – det ligner flere af producentens foregående modeller. Og tak for det. For hvor tit kan man sige, om noget så støvet som en router, at den ser ud som noget, der er...
