Great performance so far.
Chad Miller
It's fairly straight forward to set up however I do not know what Linksys/Cisco have done with their UI.
Nik C
I tried resetting the modem and router several times but this intermittent problem persisted.

Bought this router 4 months ago for my SOHO business (5 PCs, 3 printers/plotters, some phones & tablets), together with the WUMC710 bridge.

Despite what one can read from some (partially ridiculous) reviews on the net, these 2 devices are absolutely not mature, and not to be used in a critical (i.e. professional) environment.

I've owned several other Linksys products, and was happy with those, so I've no personal problem with Linksys, and I'm working as an IT consultant since >25 years, having pretty deep development and networking skills... I can just say that these 2 products may be OK from a h/w point of view, the software (which nowadays makes all the difference) is just not mature.

The WUMC710 never resyncs with the EA6700 once comm was lost (router reset or any other event)
SMB throughput via Wi-Fi is pretty bad
The EA6700 intermittently stops routing packets, i.e. the router itself still has Internet connectivity, but stops routing IP packets from clients... pretty embarrassing !
EA6700 sometimes never comes back from a config change (i.e. endless loop while resetting, hard power cycle required)
etc, etc...

The worst point for me is that Linksys has not issued (Sept. 2013) ANY fixes since march 2013, almost 6 months !!!!!
No firmware in the world is perfect, and seeing that Linksys is no longer working on it since the product launch is for me as a professional the most frightening point: the lack of (serious) support... ANY company claiming to make quality products must provide some level of follow-up on their products...

Linksys seems to have adopted the 'fire and forget' product strategy, it's just that the prices don't match !!!

My network is a little more complex than usual. I have both cable and u-verse which feed into an RV042 fail over router. I plugged the EA6700 into this router. That was enough to break it. Try as I might I can only configure this router when the internet connection is down. That is the only (obvious) way to manage the router locally. When the internet -is- connected you need to use the abomination called Smart Wifi. Horrible idea. Perhaps it is useful for a few cases but you must have a choice to skip it. The problems:

- it uses a terribly implemented CAPTCHA which makes it nearly impossible to a) sign up b) retrieve your password. I mean I've typed thousands of CAPTCHAs over the years but this one is maddeningly unreadable. The people who decided to do this and those that implemented it should be fired and publicly shamed.

- my router refused to associate itself with my smart wifi account. Tried 5 times. Just gives a generic error without any way to resolve it other than repeating what you just did which didn't work either.

- it is unclear what access the cloud gets to your router. It's all very nebulous (get it?). This is bad. With corporate security being just about non-existent I don't want my router exposed to hackers. Want to provide 'cloud' to check that box? Cool. Fine. Give me the option to skip it.

I bought this router from a different vendor but it's going back. I strongly recommend you do not buy this.

I bought this to replace me Apple Time Capsule as my router.

It looks pretty, promises the world and fails to deliver. It's fairly straight forward to set up however I do not know what Linksys/Cisco have done with their UI. It's frustrating to navigate and the Linksys Smart WiFi system just fails to work. I signed up 4 times and it never really worked.

The range is absolutely terrible. This may be down to living in a block of 80 apartments so there are a lot of networks competing on a limited amount of channels. This could also be down to having solid concrete walls which will again reduce the range. I understand these however I was unable to get any usable signal in my kitchen (6m away from the router) despite having line of sight to the device.

Wireless speeds were terrible as well. Watching online services like Netflix slowed down and quality got to the point where these services were unusable. The only change in the system was this device.

When making changes you are required to restart the router.

Overall this really is a terrible router. My 2 year old Apple Time Capsule had a far better range and stability.

I am experienced with networking. This router has been an absolute nightmare. Drops connections, loses data connectivity, you name it. As others have mentioned, this router has poor support and has seemingly been shelved by Cisco.

As soon as I reverted back to my old router all issues gone. I replaced the EA6700 with
ASUS (RT-AC68U which has been outstanding.

Pros: It's fast, with both wireless, and the handling of multiple connections.

Cons: It gets noticeably hot, doesn't offer too many advanced settings, and according to firmware developers, doesn't take advantage of the full hardware.

This router also two weird bugs with the NVRAM. One is a problem with aftermarket firmware, the other can break the stock firmware. In order to avoid the latter, do not do the 30/30/30 reset to clear NVRAM.

Other Thoughts: The wireless chips run around 40C average, which isn't too bad, but the CPU however is a different story. The CPU cooling consists of a heatsink, thermal pad, push-pins to help support the heatsink, sponge-things to help keep the heatsink level, and push-pins to keep the heatsink held down to the board. This is also passively-cooled too (no fan).

The CPU temps with aftermarket firmware report the temps to average around 80C. I decided to clean off the old thermal pad, removed the sponge-things, removed the support push-pins, and re-seated the heatsink with some new paste. I also took off the top cover of the unit and mounted a quiet 120mm fan in it's place. Temps now are down to 30C in the same environment. I feel as if this router should either of had a better heatsink, or perhaps a very small fan implemented for longevity.

As for the aftermarket firmware available currently, this router (at the time of writing) only has beta builds of DD-WRT. This router also is similar to the EA6500v2 for the most part (doesn't mean you can interchange firmwares though).

As for the NVRAM bugs, the first one involves the amount of storage available, and only affects aftermarket firmware (DD-WRT-specifically). The EA6700 has 64KB of NVRAM, but in-short, is limited to only 32KB.
