Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router Review

Others/Networking Gear by stefan @ 2016-07-09

The Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit router looks massive when compared to regular home routers and via its eight high-power Wi-Fi antennas it can deliver up to 5.3Gbps speeds on a tri-band configuration (1000 + 2167 + 2167 Mbps). The LAN ports are also a total of eight for connecting a larger number of devices on the wired interface and also comes with two USB ports for connecting additional storage or printers. Since we are dealing with a Wave 2 802.11ac standard implementation, the router fully supports 4x4 AC, MU-MIMO, while the Band Steering feature balances the load between the two 5GHz bands so each device does get a better data transfer performance.
