Linksys MR7350 Mesh WiFi 6 Router
The Linksys Max-Stream Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router MR7350 ($149.99) is a no-frills entry-level router that lets you give your network a Wi-Fi 6 upgrade without spending a bundle. As with most affordable models, the MR7350 is light on features and isn’t the fastest router out there, but it’s easy to install and can be used to create a mesh network if you have dead zones around your house. You’ll get slightly better throughput performance for less money with the TP-Link Archer AX10, though it too is short on features
A Plain Black Box
The MR7350 is an unassuming black desktop router that uses two non-removable adjustable antennas and has a single small LED strip on the front that blinks blue during startup, is solid purple when ready for setup, glows solid blue when the router is connected, and glows solid red when the router has lost its internet connection. It measures 2.2 by 8.5 by 5.9 inches (HWD) and has slots on its base for mounting on a wall. Around back are four gigabit LAN ports, a gigabit WAN port, and a USB 3.0 port. As with most affordable routers, the MR7350 lacks multi-gig LAN ports and doesn’t support link aggregation. However, it is mesh ready and can be used to create a mesh network along with other Linksys routers that support its Intelligent Mesh technology.
