What customers say about "Key Specs"
Linksys AC1900 (EA7500) Dual Band Wireless Router, Works with Amazon Alexa
  • 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.
NETGEAR AC1750 (R6400-100NAS) Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router
  • Good range and fast speeds. This router replaced a Netgear N750 and the coverage area is much better. No complaint so far.
  • The speed and range of this router is unreal. I have a great signal all the way thru my house and no lags. Definitely worth the money.
  • A huge upgrade for me. Reliable and great wifi speed I do recommend this to anyone thinking of getting this!
  • Nice speed and good signal strength. Solid unit with a lot of options.
  • I purchased this router to replace my old netgear N router and was pleased with the speed increase as well as the ease to configure however the range was no better than my old N router that had only internal antennas
  • Range was good but the speed was slow and kept cutting off

What customers say about "Network"
Linksys AC1900 (EA7500) Dual Band Wireless Router, Works with Amazon Alexa
  • 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.
NETGEAR AC1750 (R6400-100NAS) Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router
  • Was easy to setup and the antennas help to improve coverage in other areas.
  • Not bad for the price. Like the fact that it has 3 adjustable antenna.
  • Needed this router for my son's apartment to setup wireless network. Was easy and simple providing great security and connection.
  • I found the router easy to install and I am very pleased with the speed. We have half a dozen devices on the network and they all perform very well.
  • This works fine IF you are setting it up as the only router on your network. The configuration is not straightforward if this is an access point downstream of your main internet router. I spent 2 hours on the phone with customer service, and never could get it straightened out.
  • Still cannot run additional smart tv wirelessly even with an additional purchase of a range extender

What customers say about "Security"
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.
NETGEAR AC1750 (R6400-100NAS) Dual Band Gigabit WiFi Router
  • Nighthawk series routers are some of the top tier routers on the market today, this router offers the security net gear provides as well as the speed of nighthawk
  • Router supplied by Suddenlink would not allow recognition of security cameras without an open security mode, which is not acceptable. NetGear router allowed recognition of security cameras with security mode intact. Allows saving on Suddenlink monthly rental fee also.
  • Router good for streaming, and fairly easy to set up security systems online
  • Easy to install after I read the directions. Strength is great and was easy to setup the secure connection network at my home.
  • Excellent performance, but possible security issue
