    • Had Great Potential but...

      from Laval, QC on October 30, 2018

      Set up was easy. User interface was the best I've seen. Connection speeds were great. Loading web pages were blazing fast. BUT loading media was awful, youtube videos would buffer, Netflix would buffer. Did not understand why. Contacted Linksys twice, they were extremely helpful in trying to resolve my problem. The EA8300 had great potential but in the end it went back to BB.

    • Great and easy to manage

      from Langbank, SK on June 12, 2018

      Bought this on sale around Christmas. Great purchase. The Linksys app makes setup a breeze and its super easy to manage. Allows you to combine all the networks into one instead of having 3 different networks for the different frequencies. Prioritization actually works too! Easily over powers any other router in my apartment building.

    • Not very impressive

      from Port Perry, ON on March 9, 2018

      I purchased this on sale just after Christmas as an upgrade to my far less expensive D-Link router. Unfortunately even with the fancy antenna's on the side, it doesn't have as much range as the one I had replaced it with. It also cuts out every now and then, so we have to be careful when watching videos on our cell phones that we're actually connected to the wifi and not burning up our data. I was hoping for a something that could cover our entire house, however this just wasn't it. Way over priced for the level of quality.

    • Excellent

      from South Glengarry, ON on December 6, 2017

      This router was easy to set up and has doubled (or more) my internet speeds. I have a relatively new MU-MIMO ready computer. So far, very solid internet and changing my views on my internet provider.

    • Great.......

      from milton, ON on December 5, 2017

      First off very easy to set up, put in your own password, no more choosing between multiple WiFi signals there is just one. Now my smart TV doesn't have to wait to buffer up, its ready to stream, even while the kids are gaming in other room. best part is full bar signal throughout my house..and without dropping Wi-Fi connections,, yes, I would highly recommend this router

    • Awful!!

      from North Bay, ON on November 24, 2017

      Bought this to replace my 3yr old Asus router, what a mistake! Limited range, slower,and even had Linksys replace it. Replacement is Worse! Do yourself a favor and do not buy this!

    • Fantastic

      from Edmonton, AB on September 14, 2017

      Awesome unit great speeds so far. I love that I can control my kids internet usage remotely . Setup was cake . Highly recommend

    • AVOID useless out the box -- horrible support

      from Thunder Bay, ON on August 30, 2017

      I am a geek. no problem configuring a router... and a long time D-link user... so long I'd forgotten why I stopped using Linksys... now I remember... could not complete the install process on this device. configuration system kept hanging.. after an hour with tech support they suggested returning it to get another one and try again... yeah, like that's likely... AVOID....
