4TH Time Is MY Lucky Number.

USMC Combat Vet "Retired!", Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: In 3 months I tried 4 new N Routers. 1st was the infamous Netgear N600/3700. I SO wanted it to work since it really allowed me to use BOTH the 2.4 & 5.0 simultaneously as I tested it too many times to count. But then the firmware update fiasco's...I can't even get into it, spent 28 days fighting it & reset to original, 40+ contacts with tech support in India & the Philippines etc. The router that was lightning at first became a dropped connection MONSTER!

Great for the money

  • Summary: If you have used Linksys routers in the past, this one is about par for the course. It's very easy to use and easy to set up. Wireless performance is good. The parental controls are a joke and a waste of time - they are not automated with a service that knows what sites are good and bad - it's just manual. Also, if you use the Web Interface to change the defaults of the router config - like SSID, etc., then the fat client on the desktop no longer works.

A Good Router, if a little irritating

TB, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought this router for my father-in-law after his neighbor decided to start password-protecting the router he was hooking up to. I was skeptical, as I read some reviews that indicated flaws (easy enough to find, if you're looking for those reviews). My experiences with this router were reasonable. I decided to skip the installation disk; when I bought my own Cisco router, I felt that the disc was grossly unhelpful.

a reliable router

  • Summary: This is a reliable router. I've had others and dealt with connection problems and other annoyances. This one seems consistent and stable. The only drawback is the range and speed. I would say this router is slightly slower than others and it doesn't appear to have a great range. I would recommend this to those looking for a reliable router without the need for a very fast or strong signal.

Doubled my 802.11b router speed!

Julia Schelly "ladyvolfan", Amazon
11 September 2010
  • Summary: When I replaced an old 802.11b Linksys router and wireless adapter with this router and the AE1000 adapter, I doubled my throughput speed. That was exactly the response I was looking for! I gave it 3 stars in ease of use. While it was easy to connect to my AE1000, I had a lot of trouble connecting a second computer to the network that had a wireless n-card in the CPU.

Speed and FaceTime Too

SixFactor, Amazon
10 September 2010
  • Summary: I had an older Linksys (Cisco) 802.11b broadband router that worked well for basic use. Then, I got an iPhone 4 and was excited to try the FaceTime feature of the phone - I couldn't get it to work. Through several calls to Apple and and my ISP technical support people I wound up changing the ports on my modem; getting a new modem with internal router; and still couldn't get the FaceTime feature to work.

Linksys E2000-installation is EASY

GoDawgs82, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: I decided to purchase a bluray dvd player so I could stream netflix movies. The Best Buy associate recommended that I upgrade my Linksys G router to Linksys N router. I had been considering that anyway, so I purchased the E2000. After I got home, I looked at the online customer reviews at several sites, and saw very mixed reviews. Some said the installation was difficult and some could not get it working at all. I had NO difficulties.

  • Summary: this product worked for us. we had an older router and couldn't get an effective signal across the width of the house (about 100 ft). this router solved that problem. we are only using its g capabilities. we didn't need to put an n card in the wireless notebook computer. the setup/installation using your own memory stick to transer router data from the desktop to the notebook was a piece of chocolate cake (didn't need to type in the security code).
