I'm unsure if ea7500 supports iptv profile, let me get back to you shortly..
The latest is version 2.
Note the model: EA7500-AH
A must to upgrade firmware.

This review would give you a better info.

Oop ..sorry not to explained...
You need to follow the Guide in order to do setup the router.
Then follow by upgrade upgrade firmware which takes about 7 minutes, in my setup.
Finally do sign up to Linksys Smart WiFi as useful tools for making changes in settings as in SSID and other connections to as in HDD & printer.
My review on 2nd link at the end.

After u completed the router setup & firmware upgrade, everything should be fine.
Should the connections is still not ok, then contact ISP.
Starhub HOTline 1633 direct to Broadband tech support line, not CS.
Request the staff to Refresh ur IP, n follow their procedure.
Do note this may take several minutes so if the line is busy call later as this is online support.

Hope this will help.
Thanks bro. My fault too. Did not notice the 3 links at the end of the article. "Blind"...

Just to check, altot it is a MU-MIMO router, I understand (from google search) that the device must be a MU-MIMO enable device to make use of this function else its just a router. In this case, its a router with a wifi range as compare to the 868L. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Better than 868L, if you read the review in the 3rd link, more detailed on comparison to another model 890L which is better than 868L.

It is more on the router side to provide and thus enable better reception.
Partly it is new technology, so no one may yet able to do much reveal on this.

lol.. ya. What i wanted to said was a router that has a better wifi range as compare to 868L.

So for people who are looking for a router with a better and strong wifi, its still ok to renew and get this router

I saw the comparison on the speed supported.
Old version is AC1900 with 600Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1300Mbps (5GHz).
So the v2 should be AC2600 instead of AC1900 since it is 800Mbps (2.4GHz) and 1733Mbps (5GHz)?

At the end of the day, if your devices only have 2 streams, the max link rate you can get is 300Mbps (2.4GHz, 40MHz, MCS15) or 867Mbps (5GHz, 80MHz, MCS9).

Only thing is you get MU-MIMO and beamforming, but MU-MIMO requires all devices connected to support it or it will not work.

Nah..
The router is AC1900+ as this plus is to differentiate original AC1900 and v2.

Manufacturer do not create separate category if it is just some enhancement & improvement over previous.

It's getting so confusing as vendors publish all the ideal theoretical maximum. I think only my note 8 support mimo. So if used in mixed environments, note 8 also fall back to normal mode?
Sigh... Lots of things to read up... Zzzz

Understood. I m just interpreting the new version speed and the AC rating based on it.... Coz I saw someone in carousell selling this and referring it as AC2600...

The AC2600 is a different version known as Linksys EA8500.

Don't be confused with either of them.

Linksys do have various range of routers to suit to each individual needs.

As Linksys AC1900+ is known as Linksys EA7500-AH model.

Actually privacy is always an issue in Singapore. Too used to it. CCTV every here and there. Every where under monitoring.
