linksys max-stream ac2600 mu-mimo gigabit router is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money First one of these we bought had a faulty reset button, so firmware couldn't be updated as we couldn't reset. Second one required extensive conversations with Linksys to get running (and we're not exactly noobs when it comes to hardware), and even after that it drops out constantly. Experienced conflicts with our xboxes and trying to remote login to work (even though all settings were as advised). Taking it back and getting a completely different brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Australian Warranty I've had 2 x Linksys routers before for small business use and had to return them due to the remote login not working. That was a software issue for their remote access software, not a router issue. In between I've had two Asus AC68U modem routers, and had to replace them 3 times each (total 8 routers), all failed. Harvey Norman are always good for returns. I now have one EA 8500 and I'm about to buy a second. The Linksys warranty for business use is lifetime until 5 years after being discontinued. That's pretty good. But I should add, we put DD-WRT on it (which does not void the warranty). It's quite technical, but it also gives you a bit more control over the functionality for VPNs and the like. I understand the other poor review, but all the manufacturers in this area offer poor reliability so for me the answer is in the warranty and the alternate operating system.
