Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Set up a brand new router completely over a wireless connection, heresy. Finish the job in around ten minutes, even more heresy. Improve connectivity over the other routers I've been using, even more heresy. The Linksys EA6900 was easy to set up, and had rock solid connections with long range. I never experienced overheating or failure of the 5.0 GHz radio.

Over the years I've set up dozens of routers. Every single router always advertised ease of set up using wizards, discs, web interfaces, and even possibly wireless set up. None of them have ever been easy to use. They all required a physical cable connection between a computer and the router. Until I set up the Linksys EA6900 - every single step, including accessing the advanced features, was done over wireless; and on a MacBook Pro laptop (the setup access is truly computer agnostic - it could care less which browser, OS, or computer you are using).

Out of the box experience is very nice. This is a fairly large router, much thicker than the previous Linksys models (I have an EA4500 with similar shape and design). There are three good looking stubby antennas that need to be screwed into the back sockets. Place the router someplace near your modem or internet connection. Connect the internet cable to the Internet port on the back of the router. Plug in the power, a wall wart AC adapter that takes up two outlets (it is wide and flat - I hate that kind of adapter). On a computer with wireless, select the wireless network that is printed on the bottom of the router (the network and password are printed in the Getting Started manual - on my unit, these were wrong - use the name and password from the bottom of the router); enter the password, and you are now connected to the router. And then enter linksyssmartwifi.

I have had a lot of routers but for the past few years I only got Linksys,my previous one was an EA 4500.This router is, so far, outstanding..it took me less than 5 minutes to set it up and I did it wirelessly.I am not a rocket scientist ( my wife thinks that I am an IDIOT !).No drop of speed..I have 12 items connected: 2 Iphones,2 Ipads,3 laptops,Stereo,3 Rokus,DVR with 4 security cameras and they all work fine.
Well,I reviewed this router too soon;after the second or third week it started to lose connection with the internet....not once but several times a day ! ...I have 2 windows laptops (7 &8.1 ) and one mini MAC plus 2 Roku... it drops the internet in all of them ( of cause they are not running at the same time) I am sending it back to Amazon and I am getting an Asus router.Thank God for Amazon return policy !

I have used and installed home networks of various types and sizes, including those based on Linksys products. I was excited about the release of this EA 6900 router as it would combine several features I wanted... 2 bands, external antennas (which I planned to replace with more powerful ones), and off-site management. I ordered it pre-release directly from Linksys.

I could not be more disappointed. While the features all sound great on paper, they DO NOT work well in reality. I didn't experience trouble during start-up like many of the other reviewers. My troubles came shortly thereafter, and the unit eventually overheated.

The minor issues: the range is shorter than comparable routers. There was considerable speed loss (75% or so) even when in good range. There was about a 50% speed loss with items that were directly plugged in. For those of us who pay a lot extra to get higher speeds (100gig), this was a problem. Perhaps this won't effect those with slower connection speeds as much.

WORST issue: after a couple of weeks, speed was reduced dramatically. I investigated, and discovered a terrible burning smell. Like others, I experienced an over-heated unit. This should not have been caused either by our usage or item placement, and is due to a product not ready for prime-time.

APPLE AirPort: I returned this product and purchased an AirPort Extreme. I could not be happier. It has less features and customability, but simply works easily and well. The range is better, and speed much better (very little loss when connected via ethernet or wireless). I kicked myself for not having tried Apple networking products prior to now, and have already seamlessly added a couple of AirPort Expresses as Access Points to expand the network.

Router performed about same as an older linksys router I had. Unimpressive. Recently router performed an automatic firmware update (to 158863) and it now drops connections at random. Has been a big problem since coming out two weeks ago. Also ip address has gotten stuck on 10.xx.xx.xx which I can not seem to change , and now having major problems using chrome cast. It appears many others are having the exact same problems with new firmware. This all leaves me regretful of this purchase and asking what kind of quality assurance does Linksys perform . See following for further details of buggy linksys firmware:

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me say first, that my review is FACT, and a detailed account of my experience with the router. I am not an employee of ANY electronics company or vendor. Thanks.

I really wanted to love this Linkys AC9100, but was never able to get the router to stay connected long enough. I called Linksys Customer Service 4 times without any resolution. I wanted this router to replace our current Netgear Centria router that works very well. I was looking for a router with blazing speed, faster connections and could stay connected at greater distances. The setup of the router was not as easy as advertised. At first, I couldn't seem to get the router and my modem to play nice, but once that hurdle was jumped, I was all set. The user interface is not as robust as Netgear's but is easy to use. I was able to see my connections and setup USB connections quickly. The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. I had 1 router crash and had to restart the modem.

Later in the evening (Friday) when the kids arrived and turned on the Nooks, PC's, etc., the router began to crash repeatedly. It crashed 4 TIMES in an hour and had to be restarted each time. I had never had any issues with the Netgear crashing with the same kind of network activity, but I decided to call Linksys on Saturday.

In the morning, the crashes were intermittent and dependent on how many connections were making demands on the router. I called Linksys, and went through the reboot process first. This process didn't work. In fact, a few minutes after rebooting and establishing a connection, the router crashed while I was on line with the customer service representative (CSR). The next trick we tried was to re-apply the firmware to the device. We reapplied Firmware Ver.1.1.42.155232.
