small form factor, antennas are internal
NOT SUPPORTED BY LINKSYS/CISCO... the few bugs will never get addressed since Linksys was purchased by Belkin and has no interest in maintaining older Cisco products.
Antennas are internal can not upgrade
Firmware is not compatible with IE 9, 10 or 11.
Guest network login screen is buggy and often freezes.
Guest network is seen as an open network and may attract hack attempts.
No advanced settings, Smart WiFi limits much of the tweakability for such an expensive router.
Not very secure, the outdated firmware has many security flaws.
I would suggest staying away from this unit completely. Last firmware update  was in 2012! There are several bugs including not being compatible with IE 9,10 or 11. You can still access the router via web-based smart wifi but not directly to router. The sollution by Belkin? They are not fixing the firmware, they expect you to install a compatible browser. They advertize compatibility with IE8 and above but it is not.

Firmware has several security flaws that are also being addressed.

If you're like me and have tenants using the guest network, guests are required to login through a crosslinked linksys page every few hours! This login page freezes if the guests are attempting to access secure pages like https when this log in screen comes up. The guest network becomes completely frozen until a reboot of the router. Example: The guest either has homepage as hotmail or other secure page or they are working within an https when they're required to login again.
This https environment locks out the page from crosslinking and the router blocks the guest network as a hack attempt and freezes.

In conversations with customer service it's obvious Belkin has no interest in supporting older Cisco-based linksys products, there will be no further firmware update s to correct anything. It's dead-end tech, stay away.

Even my very old DIR-825 has firmware update d 5 months ago.

This EA4500 is an awesome but very basic router. There are many modern routers that are better for much less. I replaced my EA4500 with an Asus RT-N66U.

Great router for the money
Perfect for a media streaming home, if you start noticing really high latency connecting externally its probably due to the Internet port dying, just had mine go.

Will buy again or newer model.

Slick , Easy to setup , lots of functionality, Apps for ios and Android.
Range could be better.
Bought this on sale at $99.99 and its totally worth the money.
The range of apps for this device is great and they all work very good.
Setting up was so easy and the ability to control everything from anywhere on the router is a big +.
What more could i say , Simple , elegant and fast!
My only small complaints would be with the range but this is not the first router i get that has issue with my house so i cannot fault it for that.

Great Speeds.
Easy Setup
Remote usage via the app
This a great router if you are willing to spend the $$$.
It was a breeze to setup and offered great speeds.
I felt the app which was downloaded from the app store was kind of
gimicky and not complete but that has nothing to do with device itself.

Comment: Prepare to think about (and use) your router in a completely different way.
Posted by: H. Leung @10/24/12
Comment: With its novel cloud-based configuration and app platform, Cisco's EA4500 is an interesting experiment, but the hardware itself fails to excite.
