Product Description

Product Description

The Linksys EA4500 is built with leading 802.11n wireless technology, and offers maximum speed and range to create an ultra-powerful network designed for home theater performance. Connect your computers, Internet-ready TVs, game consoles, smartphones and other Wi-Fi devices at blazingly fast transfer rates for an unrivaled experience. Double your network bandwidth with simultaneous dual-band N (2.4 and 5 GHz). The dual-band feature is designed to avoid interference and optimise throughput for smoother and faster HD video streaming, file transfers, and wireless gaming, while higher quality antenna technology helps maintain high speeds across greater distances throughout your home. Keep Wi-Fi freeloaders and Internet threats at bay with WPA2 encryption and SPI firewall to help keep your network protected.

Use the 4 Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) ports for quick file sharing (up to 10x faster than standard Ethernet) between other Gigabit-enabled devices like computers and servers. The built in USB storage port lets you add an external USB drive to your network and share files at home or over the Internet, and the built-in DLNA media server seamlessly streams your video and media files to an Xbox 360, PS3, or other DLNA-compatible device. You can also connect a USB printer and share it across your network.

Bring the ultimate entertainment experience to your home by connecting computers, Internet-ready TVs, game consoles, media players, and more to your wireless network and the Internet. Simultaneous dual-band N and Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritisation technology delivers maximum speed and performance so you can enjoy fast downloads, smooth video and music streaming, and reliable gaming and VoIP.

The supplied Cisco Connect software helps you easily set up your router, customise your settings and quickly add multiple devices to your network. You can even create and manage a seperate password-protected network for guests, and limit access time and websites with parental controls.

Hi,

Firstly I'd like people to know I'm a very technical guy and have been working with all kinds of home and business networks, firewalls, wireless, ADSL and ISDN devices for years.

I bought the EA4500
a) because of the two separate Receiver / transmit modules so you can use both 5GHz and 2.4GHz at the same time.
b) the promise of Cisco Connect Cloud - and the proposed ability to integrate into home devices. I'm keen to manage my home as a virtual device pool, the PC's, iDevices, Denon 3310, Media Centre etc
c) strong security
d) expected high freatures - inbound rules, port forwarding etc
e) ability to remote RDP from the internet to my personal PC.
f) the USB NAS server - so I can turn off my Media PC most of the time

This has been a horid experience so far. What I knew through working with devices before has needed to be reconsidered because of the terminology and lack of forethought by Linksys - sorry, I should say Cisco.

Good points:
The wireless works okay, not as well as I'd expect, probably a third of the speed. Good reception, doesn't drop, but not that fast - I've tried the iPad2, Samsung PC, Dell PC, iPhone - all stable but slow wireless
GB networking works well - consistent high speed. Hurrah!

Average points:
Cisco online support - I've realy needed them. Their knowledge is limited.
The NAS server works but is pretty flakey. Set it to scan Music for DNLA and it misses files and directories out. Sometimes I've needed to unplug and replug my external Seagate 2TB drive for it to be recognised. When it's scanning the external drive the overall router performance is poor - yet I thought the 1.2GHz processor was supposed to have fixed that over the EA4200?

Love this device,I have recently set this up in a cafe to provide an open wifi area with guest access with ease. I did notice that someone had mentioned that it doesn't work with BT infinity but this was not the case for me. I've successfully run it off an HUB5 with sync of 80 meg. From the HUB5 I ran it to the cafe area on 175 meters of CAT5 and in the cafe I did a through speed test and was getting 75 meg. The CD guides you well through the set up and remote logging is a dream. I confidently handed this system over to the owner of the cafe who is a tech phoebe knowing that she will be able to log in and make changes without having to come back to me. I will be purchasing more of these for future projects.

Set up was quick and easy, though ethernet connection on Windows 8 always requires a new IP address each time I turn on the PC (the wireless connection is unaffected).

But I'm sending it back after discovering this router has a built in limit of 8000 files that it can deal with on the media server.
For example, I have a 1TB hard drive with music and photos that I want to be shared across the home network. Unfortunately, the TwonkyMedia used on its media server only reads the first 8000 files.

There is, so far, no way to get around this. Get another router.

I had previously worked with an E4200 unit and liked it (as I have a few of the Linksys/Cisco wireless routers I have owned over the years), so I was concerned when reading that people were complaining that you could only configure the EA4500 via the Cisco software on their CD/website and that there was not the familiar web based interface of old.

Without doing any further research I took a gamble and bought one. The software on the disc was useless to me, none of it was compatible with my OS, however the PDF user guide alluded to the trusty old web interface still being around, so I tapped in the default IP address and I was hit with a page directing me towards installing and using the Cisco software... however at the bottom of the page I found a small link asking me if I wanted to continue unsecured (or something of that nature), clicking that, then clicking OK/Continue on the next warning message box brought up the login interface I was used to, and using the usual default Linksys username/password combo got me in to the configuration interface I know well.

15 minutes from opening the box my old router was replaced and the new one was configured exactly how I liked it.

TL;DR: It is possible to use the old web configuration interface, just look for the 'unsecure' link at the bottom of page (at 192.168.1.1) you see at the device's very first boot up.

Firmware version: 2.0.36 build 126507

Before you read this, I must declare that I haven't actually paid for my EA4500. I was given one at an event for free. However, I can honestly say that having used it I would not hesitate to buy one and wish I'd purchased one over the NETGEAR N600 DGND3700 Wireless-N Dual Band Modem Router + 4-port switch router/modem that I got instead, which is pretty ugly and has given me various problems with the current (as at June 2012) firmware - like Wi-Fi security problems etc. [To be fair, if you don't mind the hassle of emailing back-and-fro, you may be given access to a beta firmware that fixes a lot of the issues].

Anyway, unlike my Netgear, this is a router only. It does mean keeping a separate modem, but that suits me as I'm using a Billion 7402nx that has a higher sync rate with my ADSL service than the Netgear (or any other modem I've used) and has a 3G fall back option. Connected to the EA4500, I was able to set up the 2.4 and 5GHz networks in seconds and get online with no problems. I also have the advantage of being able to run a longer Ethernet cable from the Billion to the Linksys, to position it in a better location.

From this week, the firmware has been updated to support Cisco Connect Cloud, which means you can now access and control the router from the web - and that means you can access the router from anywhere. The app for iPhone and Android is now accompanied by six apps that let you do other things, like manage media, bar sites and services from simple menus (e.g. block Facebook at certain times, or Netflix), view IP cameras remotely and much more.
