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:

So far, so good. Went thru 3 different Linksys routers in less than 2 weeks trying to find one that could actually get a wireless signal to our den ( BTW our house is very small ) & Direct TV Genie. We originally had a cheap router ( that was a recondition unit at that! ) for over 2 years, but had a bad storm back in July that apparently knocked that router out. Decided to up grade to a better router. Since the old one was a Linksys ( E 1000 ) I decided to stay with that brand. 1st router ( N 600 ) we tried worked on my computer ( which is hardwired ) but the signal/range wasn't enough to reach our den. Took that back & got a higher $$ unit ( N 1200 ) that wouldn't even load to my computer ( a newer Windows 7 unit that I purchased from Staples earlier this year ), so that had to go back. Finally did a step back to this one ( N 900 ) & everything seems to be working okay for now. But will probably be purchasing a range extender closer to winter so we can get our On Demand programing to stream/load faster.

Linksys 4500 wireless router

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

This purchase was to upgrade from an older version - the Linksys 2000 that we have been using. We've added many more devices using wireless over the past few years and needed the newer router to handle it. The set up was easy and I was able to reset the name of the wireless connection and password to what we had been using.This way, connection would be the same for all the smart devices and laptops that had been set up to auto-connect to the previous router. There is a seperate "guest access" sign-in too. We have three floors and this router is powerful enough that we can access internet anywhere in the house.

Without this device we would not have computer service. We live in the mountains and it has been working great. As always, Staples is the place to go.

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

Was very easy to install, set up and connect to the wireless in my house. However not sure 100% this is the best product. I have only owned it about 3 weeks and it does seem to drop the wireless signal in our house periodically and I have to run a fix scan on the internet to get it reconnected each time. But it could also be other issues as well not sure yet still have to investigate and no it's not distance my house is 2100 sq ft. But, so far it's a good product but time will tell.
