This product really isn't all it should be.

My reason for buying this was because I have a BT Home Hub 3 and it keeps dropping connections and the signal wasn't quite what I needed at the other end of my house - and I have a very long house so I wanted something with extra oomph. Sadly the Linksys EA6900 fell seriously short of expectations and was returned.

Pros:
1) USB 3.0 is a dream. I detected no interference with the signal and it was transferring large video files across the wired LAN at around 40MBps (Seagate 2TB external HDD). I really enjoyed the 3.0 USB and will definitely get another router with 3.0. This is especially useful if you have a digital SLR and you have large photo files that you want stored on the network. It was a dream and huge improvement for me.
2) Having 4 built-in Gigabit ethernet ports was also great. I work from home and have two main work computers, both of which I hard-wired into the router. The extra gigabit ports were terrific and I was definitely getting bang for buck in that regard (although there are lots of other far cheaper routers that offer exactly the same thing)
3) The data speeds over the 2.4 and 5GHz wifi signals was far far faster than my BT router (12MBps vs 3MBps!!) BUT - and here is the catch - the range was awful. And I do mean awful! At 10 metres from the router, BT was knocking the socks off Linksys.

Cons:
RANGE RANGE RANGE. Awful! I was expecting a lot more.
I was using the INNSIDER software to monitor the signal strength and was appalled to see that my very old BT Home Hub 3 knocked the socks off my brand new Linksys router, starting from only a few metres away. Once I had gone into the next room (brick wall between the two rooms) the Linksys had almost disappeared!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm not sure where to start with this Linksys EA6900 Smart Router - and neither was it. When I first unpacked it and started the setup routine it just wouldn't work, the 2.4GHz band wi-fi connection was visible but nothing would actually connect to it. Eventually I had to bypass the 'easy-setup' and connect via Ethernet and do things the old-fashioned way. Eventually, after much fiddling and a few restarts, I discovered that the 2.4GHz band network wouldn't connect to anything as long as the 5GHz band connection was active - switch off the 5GHz network and it was fine. I left it that way overnight and then tried testing it again the next day and... it all worked fine, even with the 5GHz band enabled. I can't explain why it decided to start functioning overnight - it might have been a firmware auto-update, but I had already checked for available updates and I don't think the version number had changed. So it's a bit of a mystery - but if you have the same problem getting an EA6900 going then grab an Ethernet cable and switch off the 5GHz band network for a while.

Once I got past the shaky setup it's been fine, actually it's been rock solid and rarely, if ever, needs restarting to keep it happy. The EA6900 is my second Linksys router and I got it to replace an EA4500, which has been great and easily the best router I've ever had. There are a couple of differences, notably the AC1900 network option and the external adjustable antennae, but for the most part they're very similar routers. There's a great selection of services and options onboard and the widget-style interface to configure these is attractive and mostly logical - although sometimes settings you'd think would belong together are in different sections.

I received a Linksys router yesterday 16th July 2014. I brought this after reading the reviews online, saying this is the best thing since sliced bread. My husband and my son attempted to set the router up and it would not connect, we are with BT Infinity. They got the router connected to the BT open reach modem and everything looked fine, however the router was not getting signed an IP address. After several attempts our-selves, we got it working, but even with an ethernet connection we had random drop outs and could not connect again.

I phoned Linksys on a 0871 number (it was 10p per minute). I spoke to a lady who guided my husband (who is very technically able) through the setup procedure. She made him repeat the process about four times before I asked if the router was the fault. She refused to acknowledge that there was a problem with the router and tried to make him repeat the set-up process all over again. At this point we had been on the phone for 44 minutes and we asked for her to ring us back as this call had cost us about £4 and we were getting nowhere. She said we would receive a phone call straight back from her. It is now 4 hours later and still, no PHONE CALL!!!!

I consider this as very bad customer service..... I do not recommend this company to anyone, please be careful needless to say I have packed the router up to be returned to them. I am really not best pleased.

the unit itself seems great, but the AC signal is very weak and is easily stopped by any internal walls
