What customers say about "Key Specs"
Linksys AC1200 (EA6350-FFP) Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit & USB Ports
  • Great transfer speed for gaming and internet surfing
  • This router was very easy to install and the speed is great. I've had it for a couple months and the connection has never dropped.
  • This router has allowed me to get full use of my increased modem speed
  • I would recommend this product to anyone that enjoys having fast wifi speed for there internet
  • This unit was easy to set up. Has good range, not great, but very good speed Low profile design, looks nice.
  • I have a 60 Mbps service and connecting the laptop directly to the modem gave me the full speed, sometimes even more. However, through the router either wired or wireless connection, I can only get 16 Mbps max.

  • The quality and set up is easy the speed is also very good.
  • Our old router didn't seem to be handling the increasing number of devices connected to it; network speed on individual devices would randomly slow down. This new router handles all the devices without a problem. We no longer experience reduced speeds on individual devices.
  • It was very easy to set up and immediately every device in the house improved in speed. It was recommended by the Best Buy rep for using with our new smart tv and everything else.
  • Time warner recently increased their speeds and I was not seeing it with my old equipment. Upgrading to a new cable modem and this wireless router made a huge difference and increase my speed 4X
  • Did a ton of research to replace our old worn out routers. Speed and capacity were primary concerns but this one comes with so many great options it was hard to pass up, especially with the bundle deal BB had in store with the range extender.

What customers say about "Network"
Linksys AC1200 (EA6350-FFP) Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit & USB Ports
  • Dual band really makes a difference, AC standard allows much faster speeds, really good product
  • Standard dual band router doing its job. I don't know much about these things, but this one seems to work well.
  • The 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard (aka 5G Wi-Fi) is the latest on the market and offers up to 1733Mbps of wireless connection speed on the 5Ghz frequency band.
  • Works great, I like all the special features it comes with, like prioritizing wifi usage between a devices
  • However I noticed that the signal strength on the 5ghz network is nowhere nearly as strong as the standard 2.4ghz which sucks because I don't have a huge home and in some parts I have to switch networks to the 2.4ghz which decreases the overall speed to about half (~20mbs).

  • I love the 5ghz speed and parental control. My daughter doesn't so much!
  • Great router, i love the options to prioritize your more important devices.
  • This wireless router is great for home use, haven't had any issues with connectivity or speed, no dead zones either. The app is great for prioritizing devices as well.
  • Great router! It works great and is very fast! I love that you can set prioritization to different devices especially game consoles.
  • It has an app and it works awesome! The range is very very good and the signals are powerful. The settings let you prioritize your devices such as your TV and also it works great with my tv on 4K.

What customers say about "Security"
Linksys AC1200 (EA6350-FFP) Wi-Fi Wireless Dual-Band+ Router with Gigabit & USB Ports
  • Awesome router, lots of security features, Easy to setup
  • Was better than expected great control on security. would buy again
  • This was a very good purchase for my business. It was easy to configure and easy to secure for use
  • I wanted to find a unit that would have parental controls. This one fits the bill and allows me to control every device individually in the house. It does have a couple bugs but overall it is a nice unit
  • I am pleased with this new router system with an app available to access parental controls via my phone. This is much simpler then previous methods with routers.
Linksys AC1900 (EA7500) Dual Band Wireless Router, Works with Amazon Alexa
  • Easy setup pretty much plug and play security is easy to establish
  • Super easy setup, very easy to adjust security and privacy settings
  • Was just what I was looking for has great speed range all the security you would need in a standard home router
  • Product is slight pricey but overall very good. Has good range and adaptable to other items, like modems, and security systems.
  • The biggest flaw I see with this router, especially at this price point and with a reputable company as Linksys, is the lack of security on the Guest Network.
