You have to disable ipv6 if you want to use parental controls on this. Linksys doesn't advertise that, but it just will not work until you disable ipv6.

I think it's an overkill. You shouldn't need mesh network for 3000 sq ft unless your house is concrete or brick structure. I would recommend Archer C9, Archer C1900, Asus TM-AC1900 or RT-AC68U. A good $100 router should do the job!Smilie

I use Orbi for my 2 story 2300 sq ft house. Works great.

probably can wait for the TP-Link AC2600 to come around again. wouldn't recommend most of the routers listed as they're older 2nd gen models, plenty of routers with better processors now.

maybe do a site survey for your location - find out what the best channels are for your area.

Is it possible to price match with Amazon given that this is a Newegg coupon deal?

Overkilled for sure, buy EA7400 is more than enough, I have 3200 sq house with 9000 lot size and EA 7400 covers all area at full signal. Bought on sale in Fry at 79.99

We need to stop buying $200 and $300 routers , even if they have names like " Midnight Rider"
and "screaming eagle" , etc. with 5 or 10 antennas .... { unless you just prefer to buy expensive
electronics }

If you can get complete coverage with this router then it would not be overkill. I've never used this product so I don't know it's range, but I have the Netgear Nighthawk X4S, and I can't get full coverage on the top 2 floors (not even taking my basement in consideration). My router is placed on the top floor. My top 2 floors probably is a tad over 3000 sq ft but close.

I would probably go with a mesh alternative. Even if you can get complete coverage, you are guaranteed 100% not to get 5ghz coverage and only 2.4ghz. With the "mesh" offerings, you should be able to get 5ghz coverage throughout, and you might want more coverage outdoors even.

Netgear also has a couple of newly released extender X4S EX7500 and X6S EX8000 that work like "mesh" but can work with your existing router.

I have EA6500 and every time it getting hot, wifi is super slow and can't access any web page or 192.168.1.1. If I reboot, its refuse to boot until it's cool down.
