Choose Your Band:-
The EA9300 shares the same black textured sleek design as the Linksys EA9500 WiFi router, but at 2.5 by 9.0 by 11.6 inches, it is not quite as large. It has six nonremovable adjustable antennas and the top holds a panel which is very small, an illuminated logo of Linksys, a WPS protected setup, activity LED and LED indicators which light up when there are LAN cable and internet connection issues. Around back there are four Gigabit LAN ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a WAN port, a power jack, a reset button, and a power switch. A WPS button is located on the right side of the WiFi router.
The EA9300 is an AC4000 tri-band WiFi router capable of maximum data transfer rates of 750Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1,625Mbps on each of the two individual 5GHz bands. It is an 802.11ac Wave 2 device which supports MU-MIMO data streaming, direct-to-client signal transmissions, and Smart Connect technology in which the WiFi router chooses the best radio band to use based on things like available bandwidth and network traffic. This WiFi router also supports seamless roaming when paired with a Linksys Max-Stream WiFi range extender. It is powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core CPU, 256MB of flash memory and 512MB of RAM.
You can manage the WiFi router using a web-based console or with the same Linksys Android or iOS, a mobile app used to manage the series of mesh Wi-Fi systems. The application has most of the same functionality as the web console, but you get more control with the console. For example, you can set prioritization of application and limit downstream bandwidth with the web console, but not with the application. Moreover, the web console offers a few advanced options that you do not get with the application including VLAN, Airtime Fairness settings, Wireless Scheduling, and Speed Test, which lets you measure your WiFi router’s internet download and upload speeds.
The mobile application opens to a Dashboard screen which displays the name of the network, status of internet connectivity, and the number of connected devices. It also shows the SSID names of each radio band on the guest and primary networks. Tap any band to grant access to users via text messaging or email. The message contains the password and SSID for that particular band. To display a list of tap Devices, connected clients, and then tap any device name to apply parental controls or to give the device prioritization of bandwidth.
Keeping Up With the Competition:-
Installing the EA9300 WiFi router is easy and fast. We started by downloading the mobile application and creating an account. After plugging in the WiFi router, we tapped Launch Setup and selected all other WiFi Routers from the list and followed the instructions which are in-app to connect to the WiFi router using the phone’s Wi-Fi settings with the password and SSID found on the base of the WiFi router. We then tapped Find My WiFi Router and were instantly redirected to the Setup screen of EA9300. We tapped Continue and were prompted to personalize the network by creating names for each and every band and entering a brand new password. We created an admin password for accessing the WiFi router’s settings console, and the installation was complete.
