I've had Linksys WAG54GP2 and WAG310G, wireless on both were crap, although admittedly they were only wireless G, haven't had any experience with any dual band ac routers though. I have UFB 30/10 at home and a TP Link 300N wireless router hanging off the RGW, reception on the TP Link has been fantastic.

joker97: Or even connect 2?

There is a USB3.0 port and a USB2.0 port.


Trusted Reviews reports that the transfer speed for the USB3 port is only 7MBps, and the USB2 port is about 5MBps

Wow, just received the router and am playing with the smart wifi apps.

Linksys app Net Proofer for Android is brilliant, quickly blocking any site you want (including HTTPS) from anywhere in the world (you create an account with linksys and associate your router with it, enabling you to access from anywhere)

I was using the EA4500 for the last year or so but then it started failing on me and in the end i just got frustrated by it and got a TP Link. So far the TP Link has been going good for me but it is a Wireless N router and it isnt nearly as powerful as the EA4500. I am quite tempted by the EA6700 (or even the 6500) but I am weary of Linksys now! I was leaning towards getting a DLINK as my next router (or even a NETGEAR). When I say failing, I mean the internet was dropping 5-10 times a day. It wasnt the modem since the modem was always connected - I contacted my ISP to confirm this as well.

Is there anyone here who thinks I should give Linksys another go? Or maybe I just had a bad model or something and Linksys are generally quite good?

I have had my EA6700 for 11 months now, and it has been rock solid.

For those wanting to know about transfer speeds over the network, I just tested

Gigabit Ethernet to 867Mbps AC is around 50-55MBps

867Mbps AC to 867Mbps AC is around 20-22MBps

900MB file was used in both occasions

This is with both devices beside router.
