the rouetr is slow and it is refurbished
This router is REFURBISHED and it does not come with the original AC Adapter. Flashrouter does not mention this anywhere on the website, except at the end of the details section (they don't say anything about the ac adpater). Completely misleading.. LOOK ELESEWHERE
There were many things I was looking to do with my setup, things that simply weren't possible with my modem router. The ability to easily setup a guest network, use VPN on all of my devices, and feel comfortable with that extra level of protection throughout my entire network. I recommend a FlashRouter to anyone. So helpful!
The EA6500 is the greatest, as is FlashRouters. The shipping was super fast and the service was amazing. From the pre-purchase chat to support for setting up my VPN account, I only had positive experiences with this company. I recommend FlashRouters to anyone looking for a secure setup.
This FlashRouter has served as the solution to many problems. For about a year, I have tried to secure a strong connection to my Netflix account, as buffering seemed to disable me from finishing any movie I started watching. You can understand how frustrating this was. The EA6500 has proved itself to be the panacea I was looking for all along.
FlashRouters is great. I ordered the router on a Monday, and it arrived at my door Wednesday. I took the router out of the box and -- boom -- it worked plug and play. I can't say how elated I am with this service, it's truly awesome. If you are looking to get the most of your VPN service, there's nothing better you can do than get a FlashRouter.
Very, very happy with FlashRouters. The service is, without a doubt, fantastic. Incredibly fast shipping, a very helpful sales team, and an amazingly patient tech support team. Not to mention this router, a Linksys, my personal favorite brand, with awesome Wireless-AC capability. I recommend FlashRouters wholeheartedly.
I have been a Linksys fan for many years, and I can safely say this is the best Linksys router I have been an owner of. With an amazing processor and sleek design, this router is perfect for any home or office setup.
