Since moving to 802.11ac, Linksys has gone with the Smart Wi-Fi platform with most of their product releases. With that, this platform has become quite solid with little to no bugs. On the main menu, you can see a quick look at the router to the right.
The network map will give you an idea of what PCs or devices are on your network.
For those of you that use guest access, the EA7500 doesn't disappoint.
Parents, you too will be happy as the EA7500 will allow you to control when your child uses the internet.
Like most solutions, the EA7500 has QoS or media prioritization as Linksys calls it.
External storage is available via the USB ports and can be used to stream media or share files locally and through http://FTP.
The connectivity menu shows you your current wireless setup on the left with router firmware information to the right. As you can see, I was using version 22.214.171.124654 for testing.
Without going too far into geek land, the EA7500 does allow you to configure the router to your liking whether you are a home user or enthusiast.
Last but not least, the security menu allows you to configure options such as firewall, VPN, and internet filters. A second and third tab enable DMZ and port forward functionality.
