Linksys EA8300 Max Stream AC2200 Router review

The Linksys EA8300 Max-Stream router boasts top speeds and tons of features for medium-size homes, and it’s affordable at $200  or £150 in the UK. Its tri-band and MU-MIMO capabilities can help improve your Wi-Fi signal, but its AC2200 class distinction implies that it’s not quite a top-tier router like the similarly priced Asus RT-AC3200. The EA8300 will get the job done today, but as you acquire more devices in the coming years, you will probably want an upgrade. With less theoretical speed but similar features to the Linksys EA8500 and EA9500, the EA8300 is a nice little router – and I do mean little – for anyone in need of upgrading their networking equipment.

Compact design to fit anywhere in your home

The EA8300 is lightweight (1.3 pounds) and compact (8.4 by 6.4 by 2.2-inches), much the opposite of its high-octane EA9500 brother. With its all-black design and a small digital display, it’s not inherently ugly, so you shouldn’t have to hide it from view. The display shows the Linksys logo and an orange icon when you aren’t connected to the internet. Nothing too flashy.
