Linksys EA6350 AC1200+Dual-Band Smart WIFI Wireless Router Review

The Linksys EA6350 AC1200+ Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router provides blazing-fast 5GHz throughput as well as a comprehensive collection of administrative options. It costs more than the D-Link AC1200, but it’s speedier and includes a USB port, making it our new Editors’ Choice router. You generally don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a router if you have a tiny home and a small network.

Design and Features:

The EA6350 is a dual-band 802.11ac router with two non-removable antennas. On the 2.4GHz frequency, it can achieve (theoretical) throughput speeds of up to 300Mbps, and on the 5GHz band, up to 867Mbps. It enables beamforming, which distributes wireless signals to each client individually rather than over a wide band. Some of the best-reviewed routers on the market right now include the Asus RT-AC88U Dual-Band Router, TP-Link Talon AD7200 Multi-Band Wi-Fi Router, and Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router.

Installation and Performance:

In our 5GHz throughput testing, the EA6350 delivered the best results we’ve seen from a cheap router. It is substantially quicker than the Net gear AC1200 Smart Wi-Fi Router (R6220) or the D-Link DIR-842, with a score of 427Mbps. It scored 72.5Mbps in the close-proximity test and 39.3Mbps in the 30-foot test, compared to 77.4Mbps and 40.2Mbps for comparable inexpensive routers. We connect a USB drive to the router’s fastest USB port and move a 1.5GB folder to test file-transfer rates.


  • The price is quite reasonable.
  • In testing, the throughput was blazing at 5GHz.
  • It’s simple to set up and maintain.


  • File-transfer speeds are mediocre.
  • Antennas that cannot be removed.


Smaller households and flats will benefit from the Linksys EA6350 AC1200+ Dual-Band Smart Wi-Fi Wireless Router. In our tests, it had really fast 5GHz throughput, and while its 2.4GHz performance wasn’t exceptional, it was more than adequate for a router in this price category. This router will set you back roughly more than the D-Link AC1200 (DIR-842).
