Pros great feature
Cons wifi range sucks, cant get more than 15-20 feet in an open room, wifi keep cutting on and off.
Summary don't wast your money, i actually had my modem exchanged thinking i may have got a bad one, but the second modem acted the same way... this modem is for sale! had it 2 month and i cant take its unreliability and more. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!!!

Pros None. Fussed with two separate devices. Spent countless hours on the phone with support, upgraded the firmware. It never worked.
Cons Here's a policy feature: if you get an RMA number for this defective hunk of junk and get a new hunk of junk sent to you, YOU HAVE WAIVED ANY FUTURE REFUND RIGHTS!
That's right. Ask for an RMA...and you're no longer eligible for a refund!
Summary This is a terrible product. Cisco should be ashamed of their product quality, support and policy.
Shame on you Cisco, Linksys, Belkin, et al
Pros Speed improvement doubled over previous Router Modem combination. Some improvement in range.
Cons Bad Instructions.Support a joke. Tech services phone number on Cisco Linksys web site was an offer for trip on a cruise ship. Dumped my call. The router USB connection killed a new hard drive. High price really not worth it. Cisco should be ashamed.
Summary Really? This product suxs.
"Disappointed"on by Tootsiegirl60
Pros When it holds the connection it is fast, even when someone is gaming on the xBox and three other computers are on the network.
Cons It didn't set up easily and kept losing the internet signal (I have comcast). Put my 10 year old wireless router back online and ta-dah I have internet again. It runs hot, and the average user would not be able to configure it manually.
Summary Extrememly disappointed in this router as I have sworn by Cisco/Linksys for years. It goes back tomorrow.
Pros Very good with wired connections.
Upload speed isn't as bad as download.
Cons Wireless connections are slow and frequently drop.
Summary I needed to upgrade my router when I upgraded my cable connection speed to 50/8. I got my EA6500 set up and did a speed test, and it was great - I was getting the full speed of the cable connection - actually closer to 58/9mb, since they overprovision. That's the good news - you get great speeds for the first five minutes or so after you connect. After that, the connection was getting momentary drops and the speed kept dropping. After a couple hours, my speed is now usually below one mb/sec. The VPN connection to my workplace can't stay connected for even an hour. With my wrt54g, it stayed connected for weeks at a time. I've followed Linksys's advice to put it in a more central location in the house (which was never necessary with the wrt54g) and change channels. Changing channels seemed to help initially but I soon realized it made it worse.
Dropping the wireless connection and re-establishing it brings the speed back up again, but not for long.
Surprisingly, upload speeds don't seem to be affected as much. Typically I can get 5-8mb/sec, even when download speed has tanked.
Wired connections consistently get the full rated speed of the cable connection and then some.
I've given up on this thing. I'm now using my wrt54g again until I decide what I'm going to buy to replace this.
Thanks for your submission!
