The Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 Router provides two dedicated Wi-Fi bands with combined speeds of up to 1.7 Gbps, and can support simultaneous connections to up to 10 Wi-Fi devices.
High-bandwidth Wi-Fi activities like 4K video streaming can be manually assigned to the high-speed 5 GHz band, while basic activities like email can be assigned to the 2.4 GHz band.
This Wi-Fi router features a USB 3.0 port that lets you connect an external storage device to transfer files or share devices across your network at speeds 10x faster than USB 2.0. Additionally, four gigabit Ethernet ports allow you to transfer data 10x faster than Fast Ethernet, ensuring high-speed connectivity for wired gaming.
**The standard transmission rates–600 Mbps or 1300 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 600 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz), 54 Mbps, and 11 Mbps–are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.

Features a step up from old router
Comments about Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1750 Next Gen MU-MIMO Smart Wi-Fi Router with Seamless Roaming:
I replaced a very old WRT-G model, which I thought was inadequate, with this one. However, I saw little improvement in the speed over the old router. Although I have more computers than before, I seldom run more than two or three at a time. One of these computers is located about 25 feet away in another room and I find little or no improvement in the signal of the extended range of the new router.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too new? Needs new firmware to make it more stable. I believe I already wrote a review on this here. (Maybe not) But more and more issues have popped up since then. Been online with support already, (And if they respond to this review telling me to contact them for support only proves they don't really read the negative reviews) This starts out as being an easy "plug and play". Right off this bat I was only getting 1/3 of my ISP's speed. The default for media prioritization was limiting my speed, I had to get into settings and change downstream bandwidth to "0". What? Anyways that worked. Setting up a HD off the USB in the back was also a pain. After Hours and hours, finally got it up and running. But it's NOT stable. And now I find myself getting "the internet is down" few times a say. Only fix it to reboot router. I'm planning on using my old router until they release new firmware for it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Seams as easy as set up perfect functionality, connectivity is great and all network pinging and firewall concerns in a Wi-Fi router, performance is excellent for the EA7300 MAX-STREAM.

Connectivity Issue with MacBook Pro
The last time I purchased a Linksys was, I think, in 2002, with my Etherfast Cable / DSL Router BEFSR41. Just purchased the EA7300 MAX-STREAM AC1750 and have had this for a week, as of this review. I do see a big difference in wireless performance, as I have it set up with 802.11ac. My iPhone and AppleTV seem to connect fine with it. However, my MacBook Pro (mid 2014, MacOS Capitan 10.11.6) keeps losing wireless Internet connectivity almost on a daily basis. The wireless signal is strong, but each day I can't reach the wireless router from my MacBook Pro. Packet loss is constant. I did not have this issue with my previous home network setup using a wireless Motorola SurfBoard cable modem / firewall. On that setup, I was using 802.11g and 802.11n; it did not support 802.11ac. I tried different 802.11 protocols and still have issues with internet connection on my Mac. The temporary "fix" is to reboot the Linksys EA7300, almost each and every day. The reboot of the EA7300 will keep my Mac connected until the next time I use my Mac. Neither rebooting my Mac nor resetting my wi-fi on my Mac solve the issue; only a EA7300 reboot. Weird. Initial setup for the EA7300 assumes a wireless connection. I could not access and configure the EA7300 until I had Internet connection established and a Linksys online account?!? What about setup with an ethernet cable connection without Internet connection?
Not all that impressed...

I did NOT receive this product as a sample. I had to buy it. I got this to replace an old Linksys WRT320N. Very old. It tested a consistent 94 Mbps. But my ISP told me it was time to get a new one. And I did want to get the faster WiFi for my phone. Everything else I have it hooked up ethernet. Same as old router, no changes made. All tests done with this one are around 60 Mbps! Not even close to old router. If you don't really need a faster WiFi. I wouldn't buy this. Pro: I am getting a better Range on WiFi and faster WiFi Speed. Setup is simpler than older interface. Con: Much slower Ethernet on Downstream and sometimes equal speed to older Linksys WRT320N on the Upstream. It really doesn't make any sense why it's doing this..but it is. I plan on a few hours with support to see if this can speed issue can be resolved, if not, I will return item.

This product, that was provided to me without charge as a test site, sat in the box for several days as I was experiencing issues with my ISP. Once that was resolved I began using the Max-Stream. As with the Linksys router that was replaced, this device was easily installed by following the Quick Start guide and then the on screen directions to complete the process. Since I was replacing a Linksys device the operational nature of this router is almost identical to its earlier version. I am not a computer expert, or anything near that level, but I have noted an increased strength of signal through out my home and really do not even see a need to continue using the wifi signal extended that I had been using for better connections in parts of the house. I am more than pleased with the overall operation of the EA7300 and have no reason to not recommend it to others.
Difficult to setup and Persistent Noise
from Boca Raton, FL, United States
I received this new router for free in return for writing an honest review. It is replacing a Linksys E1550 that needed an extender to provide coverage in 3,600 sq ft house. The router would not install automatically. I needed a few calls to Belkin / Linksys to finally get it running. Once I did it produced a stronger signal than the previous unit. However, the next morning it was making a noise like a constant pitter patter that was not loud, but since the router is on the top of my desk directly behind 2 monitors it was noticeable. Customer service told me that this unit does not have any internal fan. I sent it back at my cost in return for a replacement. The second unit again did not install automatically as described in the Quick Start Guide. I had to call Customer Service again as it seems this had other installation problems. I waited 20 minutes to be connected to a rep who was very knowledgeable, but took another 40 minutes to get the router functional. It provides very good WiFi coverage and it is also connected via ethenet to a desktop and a laptop and by USB to a hard drive. However, this second unit is making the same noise from the beginning and I am nervous about its longevity as I have never had a router make any noise.
