Multi-User MIMO technology ensures a fast, uninterrupted Wi-Fi connection even when multiple devices are connected at the same time.

What's in the Box
Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1900 Multi User-MIMO Router (EA7500), quick start guide, three antennas, Ethernet cable, power adapter, and CD-ROM with documentation.
Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi makes it possible for multiple devices--such as streaming media players, 4K TVs, tablets, and game consoles--to receive high-speed Wi-Fi at the same time and same speed.
Thanks to MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, the MAX-STREAM AC1900 easily handles simultaneous high-bandwidth online activities. Multiple users can stream HD movies, play online games, listen to music, and download files without experiencing lag or buffering--at up to 2x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.
The 1.4 GHz dual core processor of the MAX-STREAM also provides extremely fast data transfer speeds for all your devices. The router also delivers three simultaneous data streams for stronger, faster performance.
Getting the router up and running is simple.
Just plug the router into a power source and connect it to your Internet modem. Then connect your computer or laptop to the Linksys secure network shown as in the quick start guide and follow the instructions.
No installation CD is required.
The Linksys MAX-STREAM AC1900 provides two dedicated Wi-Fi bands with combined speeds of up to 1.9 Gbps, which is double the performance of a single band. The 2.4 GHz band offers speeds of up to 600 Mbps and is ideal for lighter Internet activities and older wireless N and G devices. The second high-speed 5 GHz band delivers speeds of up to 1300 Mbps for online gaming and video streaming. High-bandwidth Wi-Fi activities can be manually assigned to the high-speed 5 GHz band, while older Wi-Fi devices and activities can be assigned to the 2.4 GHz band.
The MAX-STREAM AC1900 Router uses Beamforming technology, which enables the router to strengthen the Wi-Fi signal to specific devices, rather than simply sending out Wi-Fi in a general direction.
This results in faster Wi-Fi speeds, better wireless range, and stronger Wi-Fi connections.
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 storage devices or wired gaming. The USB 2.0 port is great for smaller file transfers or connecting a printer.

This replaced an older Netgear router and find it superior in many ways to my previous router, good choice!
Easy setup router
from Candor, NC, United States
My internet provider is kinda slow but this router definitely made a world of difference from the one I used to have. Very easy to set up and even easier to use!

Needed new technology and wanted to stick with Linksys for my new router as the brand has never disappointed!
Excellent Performance and Easy to Use
By Young Grasshopper
from Kimball, TN, United States
I've used two of these, one at home for a few months now and one at work for a couple weeks, and haven't had a single problem yet. The Linksys Smart WiFi app makes setup and network management a breeze, and the external antennas provide for a great range even through multiple walls. With USB 3.0 you can create your own personal "cloud" at home if you have a spare external storage device available. To top it off, this router looks so good you won't want to hide it.
Works reliably in first week of operation.
from Woodinville, WA, United States
I needed factory installation support, after I botched my initial try. I received the best, patient and professional help, exceeding my expectation. I replaced a DSL Modem + Router, in use since 2008, that was losing its internet connection several times a day most days. This new AC1900 Router has run perfectly in the first week of operation. I have not yet installed the seamless range extender, that is part of the EA7500 package.
EA7500 easy setup
By Annie AL
from Alabama, United States
It was very easy to setup and add devices to the EA75000.
Nice interface but Parental Controls Broken.
This was a replacement unit after parental controls did not work as expected on the first one. The situation is the same with the second one. If a computer is logged on and surfing the internet, then manually switching on parental controls or scheduled turning on will not work. In all other respects this seems like a great product - fast enough and strong connections However, I bought it for its parental control and its interface which seemed more refined.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Extremely easy to install
from Fort Worth, TX, United States
While I have some knowledge of computers, I am no expert. When I decided to update my 8 year old router, I had some trepidation about how long it would take and how many problems I would have. However, by actually reading the instructions and following them as written, I was able to install this new router in less than 10 minutes without any problems! The signal strength is also better than my old router.
