    I bought the Linksys AC1900 (EA6900) as an upgrade to the EA4500 (a fine product). The EA6900 was very easy to install and setup. The best part however is the improved coverage AND increased speed! We have a large home and the access point and router are upstairs in a closet. The prior router (with a range extender) did an OK job but I still had dead spots around the house and the average download speed was much less than the rated speed from my ISP. The EA6900 appears to have solved both issues (so far)! With the three adjustable antennae, I now have no more dead spots and have unplugged the range extender. Better than that, my average download speed has almost doubled! This was definitely worth the investment.

    I purchased this router a few months back because it was one of the best the local staples carried. Role forward a few months and we find the upper 5GHz band stopped working and the lower band is dropping packets. I stopped by the local Staples, they still recomened it, but it was outside their 14 exchange window, so I contacted Linksys help / support who told me to upgrade the firmware. To which I responded that there was not upgrade available (I had already checked), to which they replied, oh well, you are just out side your 90 window for free service, but we fixed and issue just like this earlier today. we can do the same for you or $29.00 with a 14 day refund option or $39.00 for a six month period.

    To be honest, I really did not give them a chance / crack at any additional money. I found the statement / policy a tad insulting.

    In my experience it was a good router, it was easy to configure and worked fairly well for a few months. The down side is it has the life span of a Mayfly. (Very short). If it breaks down you can talk to the nice folks and have them offer to fix it (maybe) if you are willing to spend just a little more money on it even though you are well within the one year (limited) warranty period on the router.

    Upgraded from an older Linksys model, which was starting to get a bit flakey, and this one works a lot better. has been up and running 24/7 for over a month now, with no issues.

    big improvement

    Comments about Linksys AC1900 Dual Band Smart Wi-Fi Router EA6900:

    I installed this router effortlessly, and immediately my husband announced his speed doubled. I installed it in a terrible place, but it worked anyway. It sits in a corner of my old house with many walls, doors and two floors to get through. It is also lined up with other electronic gear such as a desktop computer, a monitor, speakers, a wireless printer and a modem. I can't imagine what it could do if it had a spot of it's own in the middle of the house. It even gives a good enough signal to the aprtment next door where my son lives. He plays some fast game on his computer wrelessly. And did I mention the TV is connected wirelessly too? Great router.
