Supercharged Work And Play With Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi Router


Designed as a dual-purpose home office and entertainment Wi-Fi router, the MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) delivers Wi-Fi to multiple users on multiple devices at the same time and same speed.

Featuring MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, this Next-Gen AC Router treats your devices--PCs, Smart TVs, streaming devices, smartphones--as if each has its own dedicated router.

Room-To-Room Wi-Fi With Seamless Roaming


he MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) offers Seamless Roaming as you move around your home when linked with a MAX-STREAM Range Extender*. With Seamless Roaming, your enabled wireless devices will automatically switch to the strongest Wi-Fi signal, so you won't have to manually connect to the router or range extender when you move from one room to another--or even to your backyard. This means that you can move freely throughout your home while video chatting or streaming videos without experiencing dropped calls or buffering.

* Pair a MAX-STREAM range extender such as the RE7000 with the AC5400 for more efficient home Wi-Fi that delivers stronger, more powerful Wi-Fi signal to all your devices. (Sold Separately)


Backed By 3-Year Warranty And Tech Support


With its ability to perform double duty as a home office and entertainment router, the AC5400 merits a premium level of support. For this reason, it's backed not only by a three-year warranty, but also by a three-year tech support guarantee with an estimated total value of $200.

Powerful Processor For Supercharged Wi-Fi


If you're working in your home office, you can quickly download large files thanks to the MAX-STREAM's 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, which delivers the performance necessary for seamless videoconferencing and fast file transfer. The AC5400 is capable of handling multiple high-speed data streams at once--delivering faster Wi-Fi speeds to more devices.


Customize And Manage Your Home Wi-Fi Anytime, Anywhere


With the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi App, you can closely monitor and manage your home Wi-Fi remotely using a smartphone or tablet.

• Guest Access: Create a separate, password-protected Wi-Fi network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password.
• Parental Controls: Ensure a safe Internet experience for your kids -- even when you're away from home. Restrict access to inappropriate or distracting content, control usage, and block specific devices from accessing the Internet.
• Device Prioritization: You can prioritize devices that need the most speed.

Advanced Security Features For A Secure Connection


With the MAX-STREAM AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500), your work files, data, and home network information are safely connected with WPA/WPA2 encryption and an SPI firewall.

Smooth 4K Video Streaming With Blazing-Fast Wi-Fi Speeds


The MAX-STREAM AC5400 offers three independent Wi-Fi bands that deliver extremely fast combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps. Tri-Band technology delivers up to double the Wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. High-bandwidth applications like videoconferencing and movie streaming are ideal for the two high-speed 5 GHz bands, while lower-bandwidth devices like older wireless-N and -G computers can utilize the 2.4 GHz band.

Connect Wired Devices With USB And Gigabit Ethernet Ports


Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability--up to 10x faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections--including one fast USB 3.0 port--are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.

High Performance Antennas For Maximum Coverage


The router features eight adjustable external antennas, which can be positioned for optimal performance. They provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring complete Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. Unlike the two or three data streams found on other routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams per band for stronger, faster performance.

Improved Mobile Speed And Range With Beamforming


Play video games, listen to music, check email, shop, stream movies, and more--without having to worry about signal drop-off. Beamforming technology directs Wi-Fi signals to each of your mobile devices. This focused direction provides increased signal strength and coverage.
