The product packaging is quite colorful with the EA7500. The right side has an image of the router while the left side includes marketing information.

The backside of the box houses a quick comparison chart of traditional and MAX-STREAM routers along with additional marketing information at the top left.

The scope of delivery includes documentation, wireless antenna, and the power adapter.

The top of the router uses a vented design with the center solid and glossy. The Linksys logo here has a white LED that blinks when there is an issue with the router.

The backside houses all of the connectivity. Left to right, we have the USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports next to the reset and WAN port. Right of the center SMA connector we have the four gigabit LAN ports and the power input and switch.

The PCB for the EA7500 is quite busy. The top right houses the main CPU and RAM while below is the 128MB of NAND from Spansion. To the left, we have both radios and the switch between the two.
