My Review:

Our desktop pc  sadly died a few months back, and  my husband wanted to get a  laptop to replace the pc and turn our house into a giant hot spot.  The routers we tried were not the best, they kept dying! We went through a bunch of routers, they all seemed to die or just stop working for some reason or another, it was very frustrating! We were tied of replacing them on what seemed to be a monthly basis.  Going wireless is supposed to make life easier; right? Well it was not easier until I had the chance to review a  Linksys router.

Between the two laptops and iPhones and iPod’s, Xbox 360, PS3 and a Wii it seems everything is WIFI compatible. What you need is a good router to be able to handle all your wireless needs. The Linksys router does just that and more! With our home computer (laptop)  we now have superior wireless speed, and great coverage, this is is a well-made router, and I do not see this breaking down on us (like our past cheap routers) with the Linksys EA2700  Wireless Router, you will have a great router, that will last.

We like to travel and one of the things and sometimes we  will take our router with us on vacation Most hotel rooms have a desk which is nice, and we have a Sling-box that we  want to use to watch TV. It is so easy to put the laptop on the bed and watch it there, a great way to end the day in comfort!  With the Linksys router we can do that, we can turn our hotel rooms into a hotspot making it easy to use all of our gadgets without any inconvenience, talk about ease and convenience.  

Set up with the Linksys router is simple and takes a matter of seconds, I do not claim to be too computer savvy, but even I can set this router up with no issues. If you’re looking for a great router that is fast, easy to use and is affordable make sure to check out the  Linksys routers.  

Having a fast and easy to use router would be great for back to school (the summer will be over before you know it!) , computers are a very  important school item, well at least it was for me while in school, I would have loved the speed and convince Linksys EA2700  Wireless Router has.
