In a world fully dependent on the internet for work as well as entertainment, it has become an essential to have a fast wifi router. But with so many new routers emerging in the market on an everyday basis, it can get difficult to choose which one will fit you the best according to your needs.
Hey, there people, we’re here to introduce you to a router that has everything you’ll ever need in a router. The one that will provide you with premium quality features along with being on the affordable side is the Linksys EA7300 dual-band wifi router. The reason that makes it such a great option for anyone out there is its versatility and a plethora of outstanding features like high speed, dual-band, three antennas, etc.
If you find it challenging to get a decent connection since you have a lot of devices using the same network, this router is your best bet as it provides proper allocation of bandwidth to every device at our place. If you are a gamer who likes to play lag-free online games, then this router is for you as you won’t have constant interruptions or connection drops, all thanks to its strong wireless connection and maximum throughput. See, versatile, outstanding features, didn’t we say it?
We didn’t just want to say these things out loud but prove it to you as well and that’s when we decided to test this product out and lay our views on it. Read this Linksys ea7300 review further to know our thoughts on how well it performed.
The first thing that caught our eye and we’re sure it will yours too is its design, and we wanted to talk about it in our ea7300 review. If you are someone who doesn’t like bulky appearances and want something sleek and aesthetic looking for your place, this design is perfect for you. There is something about a smooth and shiny black finish that makes it not grab anybody’s attention but it just blends into any kind of background. It is not a fancy design but overall it is practical as well as professional looking. In our opinion, the panel in the centre isn’t bad but it could have been a little better designed with some kind of information about its best features.
It’s not a lightweight router that would easily break but it also isn’t very bulky that you wouldn’t be able to carry around. It’s something in the middle of both the roads and it has the right and well-balanced build quality. It is designed in such a way that would make sure your network runs well and doesn’t drop. It consists of three antennas just like most of the routers nowadays and you can point them to the direction of any device you are operating and have a sturdy and enhanced network or signal. Although if you have a small house, you wouldn’t need to do that since the default position of the antennas would be enough. Another great thing about this router is that it consists of various cooling vents so that it can disperse off the heat build-up on its own.
There are a bunch of connectivity ports this router offers that we wanted to talk about in our Linksys ea7300 review next. Wired as well as wireless networking is supported on this wifi router. At the back of the router, you can find four-gigabit ethernet ports, one WAN (Internet) port, and a single USB 3.0 port for your wired connections. As far as wireless communication is concerned, it is facilitated with the use of the latest and a high speed 802.11 ac network. This type of system can automatically connect your device to a better bandwidth.
As claimed by the brand, Linksys ea7300 router can give speeds up to 1.7 Gbps, but if you are a technical expert or have any knowledge about these things, you must know the fact that these theoretical rates are not possible in the real world. When we tested what the actual speeds were, a sufficient amount of speeds were achieved even when multiple devices were connected and we were also able to stream 4K content without any blockage. So, a thumbs up for that!
When we talked about its performance above, we mentioned how impressive it was. One of the secrets to its top-notch performance is the processor, we’ll talk about others in this ea7300 review in just a while. At the heart of this router resides a dual-core processor that helps to glorify its performance. The processor ensures high speeds and multiple data streams for non-interrupted 4K video streaming and excellent virtual gaming experiences.
Another secret for its powerful performance is the feature of dual-band technology. Linksys ea7300 dual band wifi router offers two dedicated wifi bands to divide the bandwidth in such a way that it allows the best speeds and ensures limited interferences for your device. The combined speeds of both the bands that are 2.4 GHz as well as the 5 GHz can go up to 1.7 Gbps. The 2.4 GHz band is mostly suitable for light internet activities such as browsing the internet, emailing, etc. since it gives a speed limit up to 600 Mbps. On the other hand, 5 GHz band is recommended for heavy internet activities such as streaming 4K videos, playing games, etc. since it delivers speeds up to 1300 Mbps.
It would feel like missing out on decorating the Christmas tree on Christmas eve if we didn’t mention the feature of MU-MIMO technology in this Linksys ea7300 review. With the help of the MU-MIMO technology (Multiple User- Multiple Input Multiple Output), Linksys ea7300 wifi router shares the bandwidth across all connected devices on the network at the same time. This means that even if the whole family is using the same wifi at the same time on a Sunday morning, the connections won’t drop. Also, this technology doesn’t force you to select one of the wifi networks manually, but it’s even better. It distributes the connections as required by the devices that are logged into the networking system.
Another feature that optimizes the router’s speed and overall performance is the beamforming technology of the three antennas. To be precise, this technology increases the range of the router and tries to cover the whole area of the house. What most routers do is that they fire signals in any direction unknowingly, but with beamforming technology, wifi signals are more focused only where there are connected devices.
If you are someone who doesn’t like to share the last slice of pizza or your wifi’s password with anyone, we feel you. We cannot take care of the pizza slice but there is something we have for you in-store that will save you from sharing your password; Linksys smart wifi application. The main aim of the Linksys smart wifi application is to provide users with easy wifi management as well as monitoring. You can change the password any time you want, or share the wifi network with guests for a short period without telling them its password, and so much more with this app.
With this crazy obsession of kids never leaving the phone from their hands, the feature of parental controls comes really handy for parents. With this outstanding feature, you can set a schedule for your kid’s devices for how long they can access the network and also the amount of internet they consume. Great, isn’t it?
For someone who has tested quite a few wifi routers as a part of the job, there was something about this one that struck me differently. The features that this router offers at this price tag is impressive. Among so many good things, the best part was its range and signal strength. I am really satisfied to see such an amazing product in the market for the consumers. In my opinion, this router is for those people who can take advantage of all its features. Someone who just checks the mail and surfs the internet casually doesn’t need powerful wifi like this as its functions might seem a little unnecessary.
This router is like a game-changer. Ever since I have bought this router, my experience has been nothing but the best. This router delivers a very strong 5G signal across a big space just like a lot of Linksys ea7300 reviews mentioned. What’s the best part is that it delivered the same 350 Mbps of speed that I get out of my cable modem with wired connection anywhere around my house. I haven’t been able to test out the 2 GHz frequency signal yet because honestly, the 5GHz frequency signal works for my entire space. I’m sure this router would be a godsend one for someone who is a gamer.
This router is best suitable for those who use the internet for heavy activities such as gaming or streaming 4K videos. Also, if you have a small or medium-sized space, this router is going to work perfectly well for you. With features like the dual-band, MU-MIMO technology, beamforming technology, and dual-core processor, you and your family can surely benefit.
Since this router is packed with outstanding features, it would seem like a waste of an opportunity if you didn’t use them at all. So if you are someone who just needs to do light activities such as surf the web or check emails, then you shouldn’t buy this. This router is also not the best suitable for those who have really big houses since its range is limited.
Setting up a router has never been easy, but with Linksys ea7300 there are just a few steps that you have to follow to connect the router. The first thing you need to do is turn on the router and then establish a connection between the router and the device with the help of a network cable. The next thing you want to do is open the browser and enter the details asked such as the IP address and then the password and you are done!
As mentioned in its guide, Yes, the Linksys ea7300 router does support VPN tunnels with the use of IPSec, L2TP, or PPTP as a passthrough.
Even though there are a few Linksys ea7300 reviews that are negative on Amazon, the positive ones prove how amazing this router is. The price tag and the features that come along with this router is commendable and it is something that you can barely find in any other router. It’s a steal deal and we would definitely recommend it for those who live for online gaming.
