UPERCHARGED WORK AND PLAY WITH NEXT-GEN AC WI-FI ROUTER

Designed as a dual-purpose home office and entertainment Wi-Fi router, the MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) delivers Wi-Fi to multiple users on multiple devices at the same time and same speed.

Featuring MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, this Next-Gen AC Router treats your devices--PCs, Smart TVs, streaming devices, smartphones--as if each has its own dedicated router. Working in your home office, you'll enjoy lag-free videoconferencing and fast file transfer, even while the rest of the family is streaming 4K or HD media in the living room.




ROOM-TO-ROOM WI-FI WITH SEAMLESS ROAMING

The MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) offers Seamless Roaming as you move around your home when linked with a MAX-STREAM Range Extender. With Seamless Roaming, your enabled wireless devices will automatically switch to the strongest Wi-Fi signal, so you won't have to manually connect to the router or range extender when you move from one room to another--or even to your garden.** This means that you can move freely throughout your home while video chatting or streaming videos without experiencing dropped calls or buffering.

Pair a MAX-STREAM range extender such as the RE7000 with the AC5400 for more efficient home Wi-Fi that delivers stronger, more powerful Wi-Fi signal to all your devices.


POWERFUL PROCESSOR FOR SUPERCHARGED WI-FI

If you're working in your home office, you can quickly download large files thanks to the MAX-STREAM's 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, which delivers the performance necessary for seamless videoconferencing and fast file transfer. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once--delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.




ADVANCED SECURITY FEATURES FOR A SECURE CONNECTION

With the MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500), your work files, data, and home network information are safely connected with WPA/WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall.


SMOOTH 4K VIDEO STREAMING WITH BLAZING-FAST WI-FI SPEEDS

The MAX-STREAM AC5400 offers three independent Wi-Fi bands that deliver extremely fast combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps.* Tri-Band technology delivers up to double the Wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. High-bandwidth applications like videoconferencing and movie streaming are ideal for the two high-speed 5 GHz bands, while lower-bandwidth devices like older wireless-N and -G computers can utilize the 2.4 GHz band.




HIGH-PERFORMANCE ANTENNAS FOR MAXIMUM COVERAGE

The router features eight adjustable external antennas, which can be positioned for optimal performance. They provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring complete Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. Unlike the two or three data streams found on other routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams per band for stronger, faster performance.


IMPROVED MOBILE SPEED AND RANGE WITH BEAMFORMING


Play video games, listen to music, check email, shop, stream movies, and more--without having to worry about signal drop-off. Beamforming technology directs Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices. This focused direction provides increased signal strength and coverage.




CUSTOMIZE AND MANAGE YOUR HOME WI-FI ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

With the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi App, you can closely monitor and manage your home Wi-Fi remotely using a smartphone or tablet.

- Guest Access: Create a separate, password-protected Wi-Fi network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password.
- Parental Controls: Ensure a safe Internet experience for your kids -- even when you're away from home. Restrict access to inappropriate or distracting content, control usage, and block specific devices from accessing the Internet.
- Device Prioritization: You can prioritize devices that need the most speed.

Linysys MAX-STREAM EA9500 V1 Hardware

28 November 2019
This is a Linysys MAX-STREAM EA9500 WiFi router is version 1 hardware but NOT version 2. According to Linksys NZ customer support, all devices from NZ distributor are version 1, and the V1 hardware version does not support WiFi schedule feature but V2 does.

This is a powerful WiFi router with large WiFi coverage and high speed. The WFi download speed reaches over 90% of cable speed which is fantastic. I have been using it for a week and the performance is good and consistent. It covers both stories of the house okay with no problem. According to broad speed test, the download speed over 5GHz is 40% faster than 2.4GHz (not much difference...

An overkill replacement to our ISP provided router. But we're a big family of multiple devices.

This thing didn't break a sweat with 20 devices connected to it. Which is a godsend, as I'm the usual guy who fixes the wifi connection at home.

2.4 ghz was the same but so far no breaking connections.
5 ghz band manage to pass through walls, sometimes giving me ethernet speeds just on wifi.

This is an expensive but excellent router. Solves the issues with the old modem/router not coping with a large number of network devices. This is a router only so requires a separate modem.

After a bit of initial settling in (requiring reboots) this router readily copes with 4x TVs streaming up to 4K video, Blu Ray players, wireless receiver, wireless WiFi speakers, multiple computers, laptops, tablets as well as phones and guests devices.

The Linksys app provides an excellent remote interface.

My 4th or 5th Cisco/Linkysys router device purchase. Now replacing another brand. Definitely the highest speed performance router we've experienced. Also the most automated and easiest to set up for multiple devices.

Pros:
-Great signal coverage
-Great transfers speeds
-Deals with multiple clients without loosing performance
-Great for gaming / streaming 1080p/4k
-8 LAN ports

Cons:
-Some connectivity issues over the 2.4GHz range.
-Big, ugly, bulky, takes a lot of space
-Everything about the routing functions really sucks, needs a new firmware ASAP (not supported for dd-wrt firmware).

Conclusion:
Best used in bridge mode connected to a "real hardware router" or PFsense box. For the price tag should be a good all in one AP/routing home solution like the ASUS RT-AC68U in the dual-band category. If you already have a network infrastructure...
