Received NO installation disc and no way to password protect
15 September 2014
Summary: Bought this unit at a reasonable price. Knew it was a good product before ordering. When it was received through the mail there was NO installation disc included. I was given a slip of paper with the IP address to type in on my computer and told to type in 'admin' for username and the same for password so that I would be able to change the password and make the unit password protected. Well that combination did not work.
Summary: Actually haven't tried using it yet but the ac adapter that came with it was a samsung? I understand that this is a refurbished product but I would still expect it to come with OEM accessories. Also the CD that came with it was not a manufacturer produced CD but one that was copied onto a burnable CD. Router had scratches all over it and still had previous owners information in the set up fields.
Excerpt: Price : 159,99$ Cisco launched this summer its simplified router, but the company didn’t turn back to its advanced users and its Linksys brand. This one is, however, spent by about ten different routers for only three, which contains E3000, the most powerful of all.
Not the best looking refurbished item I have ever seen, but it works.

Summary: Not the best looking refurbished item I have ever seen, but it works. All three of the ones I purchased were scratched up pretty badly. I already had three of these that I purchased new for different purposes, so I am familiar with what you get in the retail package. I purchased three of these refurbished units for the price of one new one. They came with Samsung power supplies and what looks like a home burned CD, but they worked well enough.
Summary: First time buying a refurbished product. I have been using the router for a day and I found no problems till now. The appearance of the router is scary tho. Totally scratched and the original label was taken off. The power supply is a Samsung power cord probably taken from another product. Installation Cd is a copy. I will be back in a bit to give my experience on using the router.
Summary: there were some issues installing because the old network information was confusing the installation software, but after i removed the old info by doing a reset, i was able to set up my own settings.
Summary: I bought this router to upgrade from my Netgear N300 router.This router is great for large homes, can hook up many devices simultaneously. The only bad thing is you may have to "turn off, turn on" the router b/c sometimes it won't recognize the network; it doesn't take long to reboot may take up to 30 seconds.Overall great buy!!!
Summary: Picked up this router to replace a WRT-54G2 a few months ago and have been quite pleased with the upgrade so far. No issues with the unit being refurbished. It was nicely packaged, clean, and most importantly fully functional. The simultaneous dual-band is useful if I start getting lag or dropping connectivity I can switch over to the 5GHz band and it clears right up.
Summary: This is the exact same hardware as the older Linksys WRT610N V2 model and I've used a couple of those for the last several years with good results. It works great for running DD-WRT firmware The E3000 which was purchased used here on E-Bay is being used in a home network setting as the router, switch, 2.4 and 5.8Ghz AP. Having a gig bit switch is very nice when transferring and backing up large files over the network. The wireless section has good range.
Summary: The Linksys E3000 Simultaneous Duel Band Router is one of the best routers that Linksys ever made. Not only is it a good performer it has a Broadcom chipset in it which allows the availability of after market firmware installation. The options for this router not only allow you to install DD-WRT, but Tomato as well. Once after market firmware is installed you can use this router as a Bridge, Repeater, Access Point, or standard router.
