Superior Wireless Speed

The Linksys EA3500 offers fast speed to connect your computers, Internet-ready TVs, game consoles, and other Wi-Fi devices at transfer rates up to 300 + 450 Mbps speed for an optimal home network experience.

Optimal Wireless Coverage

Built with leading 802.11n wireless technology, the Linksys EA3500 offers superior range to create a powerful wireless network. Enhanced MIMO antenna array boosts signal strength to provide exceptional coverage and reliability so you can enjoy your wireless network from anywhere in your home.

The Power of Dual-Band

Benefits of Gigabit

Use the four Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) ports for quick file sharing, 10x faster than standard Ethernet, between other Gigabit enabled devices like computers, hard drives, and servers.

SimpleTap Technology

Easily connect Wi-Fi devices to your home network with a push of a button (WPS) or a tap (included SimpleTap card to connect NFC-enabled devices). Through a Linksys SMART Wi-Fi mobile app, you can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup to easily add devices without having to go to your router. Once you have a Linksys SMART Wi-Fi account, you can use the included SimpleTap card to easily add NFC-enabled mobile devices by tapping your card on the NFC-enabled device.

Built-in USB Port**

The USB port lets you add a range of devices such as storage and printers to share files at home or over the Internet for greater access to more information.

*Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance can vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, range and coverage.

This is a Excellent Product, August 5th, 2014
The setup for this router was very easy. A person with zero experience setting up a home network, connecting the router to your modem (for cable) is so easy with the hardware and the CD provided (software). I have experience no problems since I set it up. The Children security function is the greatest.

Great router for the price, July 28th, 2014
Lost the password after I had set it up called the Linksys help number and was told how to recover it. Very professional staff.

  A reviewer from oregon,usa
great product, April 18th, 2014
great product , light weight and very efficient. Also the customer service and tech support are very knowledgeable about product. Even though you may have to pay a fee to get help to set it up if you can't figure it out. All in all well worth the effort.

  Scott from Hawthorne, NJ
Great Product!, April 8th, 2014
I finally broke down and purchased a wireless router for my house, now that I have enough smart items that requires it. The only brand I considered is Linksys, because of their reputation and also raves from other family members that have a Linksys router. I chose the EA3500 SMART WiFi Wireless router because it best fit what I was looking for. So Far I am very pleased with the router and would recommend it to anybody looking to either upgrade or start a home network.

  A reviewer from Rochester, NY
Great machine., April 3rd, 2014
The EA3500 was incredibly easy to set-up; no guesswork or dealing with weird codes, etc. We were up and running within 5 minutes and the coverage throughout home is excellent.

  Bernard Paul Brown from North Las Vegas, NV
Excellent, April 1st, 2014
Exceeds expectations. A great router for the price. For the average home, this router will handle your needs.

  A reviewer from North West Central Florida
I am basically satisfied, February 15th, 2014
the people at Linksys steered me to the correct router to handle my situation/problem. I am very pleased with how it is working and enjoying steaming movies to our master bedroom.

  Lisa from New York
Love this Router, February 12th, 2014
I purchased this router and I couldn't be happier..it was so easy to connect, set up & register it online. I love the desktop & being able to securely log on & set your preferences, SECURELY!! I have already recommended it!

  Mary J. from St. Joseph, MO
AWESOME!!!!!!!!, February 11th, 2014
I love Linksys. My family has always used Linksys. We tried Belkin and couldn't even figure out how to make it work. Belkin is the worst thing that I have ever tried. Thank you Linksys.

  A reviewer from Long Island, NY
5 Stars if customer service wasn't so cruddy., February 9th, 2014
Really nice product. No instructions or any mention on wired connections. There seems to be an infatuation with "wireless" only. Customer service rep had no patience.

Very Good Wireless Router!, January 29th, 2014
Linksys Makes Very Good Easy to Install Products. I have had 3 over the years, now going Wireless. Because of new printer.

  A reviewer from Nicholasville. KY
Set up was tough, January 16th, 2014
The router itself was easy to set up the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi was another story. Could not get a Smart Wi-Fi page to open and when I called support I was told it did not mesh well with Internet Explorer. Really? I finally did get it up and set up.

  A reviewer from Minneapolis, MN
Excelent upgrade, January 6th, 2014
Previously had a Linksys g router and upgraded to the EA3500. Setup was completely differant, but simple to do. It was a good choice. I would like the signal range to be greater that it is. Probably will need to add a range extender to fix that. I like the "Smart WiFi Network" system better that Cisco Network Magic system that I had with the old router.

  A reviewer from Cleveland, Ohio
Excellant small-house router, December 24th, 2013
At the store, I was shown this router and the N900. I chose this one for budget reasons. It has been good, reaching all areas of our 2-story house with no problems. Both PC and Apple work well.

  A reviewer from Alabama
Is working much better than old router, December 19th, 2013
Router is working well in allowing streaming on two smart TVs in different rooms,

  A reviewer from Ft. Worth, Tx.
Works as it should, December 17th, 2013
This is my second one from Linksys. The first was 10 years old. The new one was a lot easier to set up than the 10 year old one. Does what it should at a good price.

Linksys ea3500 - the best, December 6th, 2013
Installed the router in a matter of minutes. Super easy installation. Great coverage area. Supports all my wireless devices flawlessly. Highly recommended.

  A reviewer from Frederick, MD
Easy to setup, works great!, November 29th, 2013
I am very pleased with my Wi-Fi Linksys EA3500. I had no problem setting it up and it works perfectly.

  Fausto Sakamoto from Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil
Good product as expected from Linksys, November 22nd, 2013
I've tried several N-Lite models from many brands and got disappointed every time I did it. So I decided to give Linksys EA3500 a try. It improved responsiveness and wireless range for all my home multimedia devices, smartphones and laptops. The only caveat is its interface - it lacks detailed configuration for experienced users. But, for general purpose, it's a great deal.

  Tim from Tennessee
no matter how good something is there is always room for improve, November 1st, 2013
It is a really good product, I had a hard time installing due to continued problems with my ISP, they told me I needed a new router, and as it turns out I really did not.... but as luck would have it an up-grade was a good thing, this router runs all my computers and tv better than the previous Linksys product which was 7 years old...I would recommend this product.

  A reviewer from baughantony@gmail.com
it works very good, October 27th, 2013
I would recmend this product for any first time using linksys i recently purchase the 700 and its works fine it covers the house and out side.

  A reviewer from Iowa
great product, October 18th, 2013
I bought this one for my house & ended up buying another for my daughters house. They run great and I like the setup.

Great, August 20th, 2013
This product gave me a much faster speed on downloads and no dropouts.I am really very happy with this product.

  A reviewer from United States
Great Router at a great price, May 22nd, 2013
I bought this router and since getting it i have had nothing but good things happening with it. THe setup of the router was similar to the WRT54G and E1000 routers and was just as easy to set up. The 5 ghz and 2.4 ghz provide stable connections for all my "toys" from cell phones, to computers, to gaming systems. The router has provided great speeds via Wi-fi or wired making more transfer in network quickly. The in router speed test saves some time to check the router speeds. The only real issue i had was trying to find my way around the router itself when setting it up, it can be a little bit confusing however it gets easy after playing around with it. The refurb unit has been absolutely worth it and is a vast improvement over and other routers I have been using in the last several years.

Way too good for the cost, August 8th, 2013
set up...easiest I've seen&&&& adding devices....effortless&&&&&& speed...perfect for home use&&&&& user control...like a vault %%%%%% is this device NSA proof? doubtful....

  Mr. White from WV
1st time router user, August 8th, 2013
I always was negative about routers. I like to stream videos and play games, and ways always warned in the gaming community to never use a router. But to my surprise you can hard wire still and then still have WiFi. I still get my megs up and down, and it doesn't have a big effect on my gaming when someone is using WiFi. It was so easy to hook up, I have computer knowledge but even if I didn't it was a breeze. I recommend this unit, and have great compliments on Linksys and there software. I use it with a magicjack,laptop,and cells.

  Steven Friis from North Fond du Lac, WI
This is a great product!, March 5th, 2013
I decided to add my own router onto my home network and turn off the ISP's provided 2Wire wireless feature. So I ordered the EA3500. Things I noticed immediately: 1) My EA3500 provided a stronger more reliable signal over my entire home. 2) I use the EA3500 USB port with my WD MyBook drive to provide a central wireless backup point for my 2 PCs and laptop. Works great with speeds comparable to connecting it to each computer individually. The ability to establish shares is invaluable to segrating my backups among computers. 3) I also stream U-verse to one of my TVs through this router, and am driving a Roku media box wirelessly. 4) Setup was a breeze. I used the traditional interface, but will look into a cloud account. 5) Currently using EA2500 USB adapters at 5ghz on my 2 desktops instead of ethernet cable. These are connecting at 300 MBS (occasionally dropping to 270 MBPS for reasons unknown). 5) Not yet using the QOS (no need yet). 6) At this point, everything I have hooked up has worked flawlessly. 7) All in all a great upgrade from my old wireless. Highly recommended.

Works Great, July 6th, 2013
After replacing a Linksys N Router that was spoty. now great signal and information runs great!!!

  Anthony from Tampa, FL
Great Premium Router, January 25th, 2013
I upgraded to Verizon FiOS this month and needed a dual-band N router that could keep up wirelessly with the fast speeds FiOS offers. Verizon's wireless router was only a single-band G router and wouldn't give me the full speeds. After purchasing this router, I get the same speeds I can expect wired in. I love this router and it's very easy to set up.

  Henry Boureshrockn from San Jose, CA
Easy-Affordable-Fast, November 30th, 2012
i bought this to replace my old Linksys router and i was surprised at how easy it was to set it up and how fast it works. Price was also a plus. Highly recommend this.

Downloads streaming movies to TV, complete internet services, runs as it should flawlessly. Do not even bother looking at another system this is it.

Stronger but..., November 30th, 2012
Like the improved signal strength, find it complicated to change the name of the "Guest" account. Very frustrating.

Replaced older LinkSys with new 3500 , November 30th, 2012
Upgraded my working WRT54G LinkSys router with the latest version 5300. It is faster, the installation was fast and easy and the help desk was very helpful in every aspect of my purchase. I will continue to advise friends and colleagues to use LinkSys products.

  Mick Conley from Tennessee
Easy set-up,great range, June 8th, 2013
The Linksys EA3500 is possibly the easiest piece of gear that I have ever installed.Set-up is incredibly easy,even for a total novice.We live in a 3000 sq.ft.,two story, 200 year old log house and we have no issues with reception. I give the Linksys EA3500 my highest recommendation!

  A reviewer from Roscommon, MI
Easy to set up, June 17th, 2013
This unit works exactly as advertised, it was easy to connect and operate. The directions were very clear and most of the setup was automated, so very little input was needed.

  Bill T. from Sewell, NJ
Works without any problems, July 13th, 2013
I have only had the router for a month but it has worked flawlessly. The CD install would not work for me becuase I did not have a wireless adapter on my desktop PC. However, the Support staff were great and walked me through a manual installation with extreme patience on their part. They even helped determine that I had a problem with the Ethernet port on my cable modem which was causing an additional problem. After swapping out my cable modem, I called support back and they walked me through the rest of the install. I am now supporting an older (2006) Dell Desktop PC, 2 Samsung Galaxy Exhilirate Smartphones, a Kindle Fire and an iPad.

Great Product (Cheaper than EA4500 but good value), March 15th, 2013
Bought this instead of the EA4500, but was surprised with the speed. My output and network speed has more then doubled. The setup was literally plug and play. My World of Warcraft latency has improved. No more lag! Didn't think that anything could replace my WRT54G, but alas, I have found the replacement. Waiting to see what the Cloud app has in store for us!

Easy setup and ease of use! , June 23rd, 2013
I've use Netgear products for several years. But recently the routers began to fail after updating the software. I then shopped for another router and was sold on the Linksys EA3500. It was easy to setup and quick to get up and running. I have not had one issue since I bought it just over a month ago.

  A reviewer from Bloomington, IL
Great Router , May 21st, 2013
Just installed this new router and could not be happier. I live in a house jammed with multiple wireless and wired electronics and the EA3500 gives 5 bars throughout the house. And I can't say enough about the super simple set up. Highly recommended.

  A reviewer from Portage, MI
Great Product, May 17th, 2013
This is virtually plug and play for any wireless device. It handles my network perfectly. I have 1 iMac, 1 PC laptop, Roku, Apple TV and a wireless printer and probably some I've missed. Easy install. Now I'm back up and running after having a Belkin nightmare router from hell. Increased internet speed is also very nice. I would recommend this to anyone.

  Martin Klosch from Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
Super Easy Setup And Works Great, July 4th, 2013
I bought the Linksys EA3500 (N750) wireless router yesterday and I am thrilled with the ease of setup. I am replacing another make of router and the Linksys that I have replaced it with is 100x better than what I had. The biggest concern I had was the ease of setup that I needed with my new router and the Linksys EA3500 crushed the competitors in this category. I had my laptop, wireless desktop, wireless network printer and my PS3 set up in minutes. The instruction disc was easy to use and understand and gave the exact results I was looking for. I am so happy that I chose the Linksys make. All my computers and PS3 stream with ease and there is no buffering or delay in streaming. I certainly made the right choice with the Linksys router.
