Packaging is quite large given this router is one of the biggest on the market. An image of the router is on the right side of the box while bits of marketing surround the edges.

On the back, we have more marketing including a use scenario on the right side.

The scope of delivery includes a quick start guide, power adapter, and Ethernet cable.

Taking our first look at the EA9500, this router is quite large but similar in size to the X8 from Netgear. The top is completely vented as is the bottom of the router while a small screen sits in the middle.

The rear of the router is all business. It includes a USB 3.0 port to the far left followed by a second USB 2.0 port and eight Gigabit LAN ports, adding to this is the gigabit WAN and rest and power input.

On the side of the router, hides a WPS and Wi-Fi on/off button.
