The editors liked

  • The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router AC 1750 HD Video Pro EA6500 offers solid performance and lots of cloud-based features. It's also very good-looking
  • Easy to set up and configure
  • Fast 802.11ac performance
  • Optional cloud-based services
  • Simple setup. Can be managed locally or remotely. Apps extend feature set. Supports 11ac. Two USB ports for storage and printers.

The editors didn't like

  • The Linksys EA6500's performance with existing pre-802.11ac clients could use some improvement
  • And the router is comparatively expensive
  • Very few advanced router features
  • Slow 802.11n performance on the 2.4GHz band
  • Very slow when writing to an attached USB storage device
  • Bottom Line
  • The cloud as management console with Connect Cloud raises the bar for router management and that capability coupled with fine performance makes the Linksys EA6500 a top choice

  • Abstract:  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 out. ...

  • Cisco has clearly spent a lot of time and effort on the EA6500's interface, and listened to customer feedback. It's full of excellent features and is great for setting QoS rules. Performance is outstanding on 5GHz in combination with both 802.11n- and...

  • Packed with every bell and whistle you could want on a router, the Cisco Linksys EA6500 Smart Wi-Fi Router might be too complicated for the average user. For those who need the speeds of Wireless-AC, the Linksys EA6500 does not disappoint. ...

  • 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 price.
