Linksys Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500)

Ideal for busy households and home offices, the Linksys Max-Stream AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit Wi-Fi Router (EA9500) delivers Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi for lag-free productivity and entertainment. MU-MIMO delivers Wi-Fi to multiple devices—4K TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, laptops, tablets, and smartphones—at the same time and same speed, treating multiple devices as if each has its own dedicated router.

The Max-Stream AC5400 Router is easy to set up and features three dedicated Wi-Fi bands for combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps*, four simultaneous data streams per band, a powerful 1.4 GHz processor, eight Gigabit Ethernet ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, and eight adjustable antennas.

Next-Gen AC Lets You Power-Stream, Game, and Work Without Interruption

Next-Gen AC Wi-Fi is made possible by MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, which delivers fast and reliable Wi-Fi to all of the devices in your home. If your kids are streaming 4K video or playing online games upstairs, MU-MIMO ensures you’ll still enjoy fast file sharing and smooth video calls downstairs in your home office.

MAX-STREAM Seamless Roaming

Room-to-Room Wi-Fi with Seamless Roaming

Linksys AC5400 Wi-Fi Router features Seamless Roaming when paired with a Max-Stream range extender so enabled Wi-Fi devices will automatically switch to the strongest Wi-Fi signal.** You won’t have to manually connect to the router or range extender when you move from one room to another–or even to your backyard. This means that you can move freely throughout your home while video chatting or streaming videos without experiencing dropped calls or buffering.

Pair a Max-Stream router with a Max-Stream range extender for more efficient home Wi-Fi that delivers a stronger, more powerful Wi-Fi signal to all your devices.

Tri-Band Wi-Fi

Blazing-Fast Speeds from Three Wi-Fi Bands

With three dedicated, independent Wi-Fi bands that offer combined speeds of up to 5.3 Gbps*, you’ll always have the bandwidth you need for your task. Tri-Band technology provides up to double the wireless-AC performance of a dual-band router. Band 1 is 2.4 GHz with speeds of up to 1000 Mbps for older wireless-N and -G devices. Band 2 is a high-speed 5 GHz band for extremely fast file transfers and videoconferencing, while the third 5 GHz band delivers blazing Wi-Fi speeds ideal for online gaming and streaming.

Maximum performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance may vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, range and coverage. Performance depends upon many factors, conditions and variables, including products used, interference and other adverse conditions. Specifications are subject to change without notice. An active, customer-purchased Internet Service Provider broadband account is required for connection of these routers and other connected computers and devices to the Internet. Some devices may require additional wireless adapters or an Ethernet cable to connect to these routers. Four or more 1×1 MU-MIMO-enabled client devices must be connected to achieve the four (4) times faster physical data rate.

Eight Gigabit Ethernet Ports

Advanced Connectivity with Eight Gigabit Ethernet Ports

Eight Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect an array of wired devices for enhanced file transfer speeds and stability—up to 10X faster than Fast Ethernet. Two USB connections—including one fast USB 3.0 port—are ideal for connecting shared storage devices or printers.

*The standard transmission rates—1000 Mbps or 2166 Mbps (for 5 GHz), 1000 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz), 54 Mbps, and 11 Mbps—are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.

**Seamless Roaming is designed for devices that support the 802.11k standard including but not limited to iPhone (4s and later), iPad Pro, iPad Air and later, iPad mini and later, iPad (3rd generation and later), iPod touch (5th generation and later), Samsung S4 (Android 4.2.2 /4.4.2), Samsung S5 (Android 4.4.2), and Samsung S6 (Android 5.0.2). For more information on supported Windows and other devices, please check with your device manufacturer.

Getting the AC5400 up and running is simple. Just plug the router into a power source, connect it to your Internet modem and your computer or laptop, connect to the Linksys secure network as shown in the quick start guide, and follow the instructions. No installation CD is required.

Eight Antennas for Optimal Wi-Fi Performance

The router features eight adjustable external antennas that provide powerful streams of data to your devices, ensuring far-reaching Wi-Fi coverage. Unlike the two or three data streams found on standard routers, the AC5400 delivers four simultaneous streams on each of the three Wi-Fi bands for stronger, faster performance.

Powerful Dual-Core Processor for Efficient Operation

Enjoy gaming without interruption from other networked devices. The Max-Stream AC5400 Router is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor that delivers the performance necessary for activities like multiplayer online gaming.
