Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream Tri-Band Gigabit Smart WI-FI Router – £49.97 @ EBuyer
The Linksys MAX-STREAMTM EA8300 (AC2200) Tri-Band Router is ideal for homes with heavy Wi-Fi users and delivers up to double the performance of a dual-band router.* With its compact design, up to 2.2Gbps speed and Quad-Core CPU, the EA8300 seamlessly blends in with your décor while still providing maximum coverage and extremely fast data transfers. The built-in MU-MIMO technology sends high-speed Wi-Fi to multiple devices at the same time as if each family member has their own, dedicated Wi-Fi router. Unlike standard routers, the EA8300 has intelligent software that automatically prevents old, slow or distant devices in your home from reducing the speed of your entire network and focusses its signal direction to each connected device for a stronger, more reliable connection.
Use the Linksys app (iOS, Android) to easily manage your home Wi-Fi network, send guests passwords, prioritize devices and set parental control from anywhere. Combine this router with a Max-Stream RE7000 range extender to boost coverage without creating the clutter of multiple networks. The EA8300 and RE7000 operate as one network with one password and network name. Set this router up to meet your network needs with Link Aggregation (up to 2Gbps) or configure it to operate as a wireless repeater or wireless Ethernet bridge.
