  • Summary: I currently have 200Mbps download & 20Mbps upload internet and it handles the speeds well with ethernet cable. However, on good days, Wi-Fi speeds are approx 60Mbps up & 20Mbps down. All my devices use the N connection.
  • Pros: - Reliable speeds - Easy setup - Small design - Long lasting - Decent range even without antennas - Cheap
  • Cons: - No simultaneous 2.5GHz and 5GHz - Less than advertised speeds - No USB ports

Pretty good router

Jayson A., Newegg
4 January 2012
  • Pros: Easy set up through cisco connect software, though very limited options there, sleek look, ethernet and wi-fi. Great except for one problem.
  • Cons: I started by changing the password and configuring things through a web browser, standard stuff. But for the life of me I couldn't see how to disable the guest wi-fi in the advanced features so I had to reset to factory and re-install cisco connect for that program to work again. Seems to be the ...

Does the job

Thomas W., Newegg
1 January 2012
  • Summary: this is pretty cheap, works well in a three story house, most of the devices in the basement are 80 to 95%. Mid level is 70 to 83%, and top floor is 68 to 73%. I only have one device that can use the super speed, and it works well, just that nothing else can connect wirelessly.
  • Pros: The device works as intended. I really do like the 'guest' feature, keeps friends/fam off my internal network. All my devices were able to connect to it without issue.
  • Cons: You can't just work with the router itself, you must have a pc connected to it for updating. UPnP doesn't have any direct settings.

OK

Raymond G., Newegg

  • Pros: Will take DDWRT and Tomato. After updating to Tomato my computers started connecting at twice the speed. This one went from 140 to 270 Mbps. So far no dropped connections, but it's only been a day.
  • Cons: I used this router for about 6 months then it stated dropping connection frequently (several times a day). I updated the firmware which did not help.

Gigabit and Wireless.

Steven H., Newegg
9 September 2011
  • Summary: I don't know why VPN solutions cost so much when you can outfit a linksys with new firmware that has openVPN on board. I hadn't tried that solution with this router yet.
  • Pros: I didn't have to change this router much. I am familiar with DD-WRT and some of the other custom firmware, but I really didn't need it. Although if I wanted a VPN I would. This router set-up easily and has good enough range for a house. The 1000 base-T switch it's built with is nice too, and is a...
  • Cons: Linksys and cisco think it's great to set up their form factor with the sleek ergonomic plastic, but it's actually a cooling problem for the router. It's best to have some airflow around this unit, even though it's design makes it seem like you can just hide it in a cabinet. Also, when it says du...

great mid range router for the $$

Timothy L., Newegg
23 August 2011
  • Summary: for what i paid, its what i expected to get, we only have 4 mb dsl up in my neck of the "woods" and this router gives me a great range connection to it at 300 mb/s for file transfers and has dual band, which has been keeping me connected far better then my old single band (i think neighbors 2.4 ghz...
  • Pros: price to performance is great. reliable, easy to setup, easy to use.
  • Cons: its not a top of the line router, but it never claimed to be.

Requires more effort than the average person will do/can do

Eavan H., Newegg
21 July 2011
  • Summary: Checking out DD-WRT is a must, look specifically for the wiki page for the E2000/E3000 on DD-WRT's website as it has help for flashing DD-WRT as well as the additional configuration to make the router perform well.
  • Pros: - Good signal - Good range - Good speed
  • Cons: - Pretty much requires DD-WRT and additional configuration (settings configuration as well as a cooling modification) - Runs really hot

Does the Job

Casey H., Newegg
27 June 2011
  • Summary: I use it as a WAP for my wired home business network to support an HP laptop and a Samsung blu-ray multi-media player for Netflix. With my old router, the Netflix signal quality was usually ~80%, but the E2000 has kicks it up to 100% (HD quality) every time, which is fantastic. .....
  • Pros: Looks good (no ugly antennas), Excellent range, High speed, Does the job once it is configured properly.
  • Cons: Lots of fiddling with configuration in order to add it to an existing wired network. The simplistic installation wizard didn't help, as it is meant for first time network setup where this router will be the only router.
