Linksys EA6500 Dual Band Wireless Router
The Linksys EA6500 is very similar to the excellent EA4500 in many ways, with the primary difference being that the EA6500 supports the new 802.11ac standard. They share the same attractive design and many of the same features, including the free Cisco Connect Cloud interface that can be used instead of a traditional web-based setup interface. This router offers a good amount of customization and control, while also being easy to set up and use. It has fast performance at up to 245Mbps throughput; further analysis of the throughput charts shows inconsequential oddities, meaning the connection is extremely stable. The EA6500 had some stability issues that were fixed with the latest firmware updates, so make sure that you have all the latest firmware to completely eliminate that problem. While its price keeps the Linksys EA6500 from leading the pack, it is a solid purchase for anyone looking for an advanced wireless router with fast and stable performance.
