Doubled throughput, no more "loading" screens

What I like: • I was impressed that, for a refurb, there were no scratches or dings. Looked like it was brand new (not even a fingerprint). • Connected instantly to my Windows 10 PC. Setup was a cinch. • Improved throughput X2 or more (compared to WNDR4500 it replaced). • Everybody in the house uses the same SSID no matter what band (1 x 2.4GHz, 2 x 5GHz) they use. • I can turn all its lights off. Sweet! • Footprint is about 8″ X 8″ X 6″ (w-l-h). Fits the shelf perfectly (see pic). • This product met my expectations for its purchase – throughput in garden 100+ feet away doubled or more (depending on how many devices are connected – often up to 22, 18 typical). • Client PLEX players never hiccup, Netflix never shows “loading” screen on 4K content, Chromebook feels faster. • We live in a busy wi-fi neighborhood and this router seems to do a good job of sorting it out. What I don’t like: • Needed a range extender to cover the entire 2-story 2000 sq ft house. This replaced a WNDR4500 N900 router (that gave EXCELLENT service for many years) that we now use as a range extender to the far side of the house.
Very good wireless router

Product came in the condition it was described and maybe even better. Was extremely easy to set up both 2.4 and 5 ghz networks as well as guest networks. Setup from box open to walking away with new wireless network was maybe 10-15 minutes. We have a 1,900 square foot main floor ranch house and we have great signal everywhere.

Bought this to add onto my ATT router, since it was maxxing out the number of wifi connections and just dropping devices. Took it out of the box, plugged the network cable into the back of the ATT router into this one. Then it connected and the router was ready to go. I was able to connect to the Linksys network and access the internet. The connection is now much more responsive and it doesn’t drop, since it supports many more users. Once I was up and running, I logged into the ATT router and disabled the WIFI connection. I renamed my Linksys wifi network name to what the ATT router was and changed the wifi password to match, so the rest of the family didn’t have issues connecting to the network when they got home. Finally, I am now able to use Parental Controls to restrict our daughter’s internet usage based on the day of the week and time of the day. Really useful.
This is a great router

I really like this router. It has great performance. The MU-MIMO is great. With MIMO devices I can max out Spectrum at the 200 MB/s at more like 212 MB/s all day long (download speed). Of course your modem needs to be able to go that fast too. I’ve taken my iPhone 100 feet away outside and I still have a great connection. Linksys has one thing I don’t like. The guest network isn’t encrypted the same as the primary network. A password is required but I think the traffic is in the open so depending on your surroundings that could be a risk. All in all a good solid router. The refurb thing is fine, I got a really good deal through it.
