Previous wireless router was dropping the connection with the cable modem. I had some Staples rewards to use so went into the store and asked for assistance because I was looking to get the best bang for my "rewards" bucks. The Staples tech asked how many devices we use and the size of the house and based on my answers determined this would fit my needs. The first time my husband used it after I set it up he commented on how much faster it was. When out of town family visits there are usually 2 additional laptops and smartphones using the network so, according to the specs, this should handle the additional devices. We are going to get a smart TV after the first of the year and was assured by the Staples tech this router can handle it. The set up was very easy and less than 30 minutes to get 2 computers, a wireless all-in-one printer, 2 smartphones and 2 Kindles configured. After a week of use the connection to the cable modem as not been dropped once. My smartphone and Kindle Fire connect to the network much faster than before.

Two computers at least. Son and friends typically gaming, and I can still skype or stream video! I am very happy. I didn't score it higher because setup was VERY frustrating. The cd didn't work, so the company had to walk me through it. I paid good money and after about six attempts called the company (the first guy hung-up on me) and second walked me through setup and tried to sell me insurance so if I have future problems they can walk me through it after my typical warranty runs out....does not make me feel all safe and cozy with product!

Comments about Linksys EA4500 Media Stream N900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router:

Demands that you use Chrome as a browser, will not work with IE11! Very difficult to set up, and seems to crash every 24 hours. I've had to unplug it and restart it, every morning to gain internet access again. Port Forwarding seems to be flaky, works for a few hours, than stops. Range is mediocre, does not have near the range as my old cheap NetGear router. I will return it, or toss it, and buy a better NetGear than I had before. Even after paying a professional IP guy, the performance was just not there. Even he agreed. The cost of this one, plus what I had to pay the IP guy, I would have been well ahead if I had just bought a better router to begin with. Saving a few bucks comes nowhere close enough to pay for the frustration.
Pass on this one, and find a better router.

Linksys Router

By Bo

from Concord, NH

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Linksys EA4500 Media Stream N900 Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router:

We bought this unit because we were told it would meet all our needs (many devices running simultaneously, able to set up to prevent kids from going to bad websites and use during off hours.

At first everything was fine, and we were happy with the product. After a short time of use, we wanted to log in and change some settings, the characters that you identify to log in were impossible to verify. Between my wife and i we tried over 50 times, even asked our kids to help read the letters. Impossible. We tried several times for over a week with heh same results. We were extremely frustrated, put it back an the box and brought it back to Staples for a refunds, which they were kind enough to give us.
