This router can be easily hacked because of WPS vulnerability

Summary: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ROUTER!. I own this router and discovered in January of 2012, that many companies that manufacture routers had implemented a feature called Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) incorrectly. This allowed hackers to easily obtain access to the router and into your network.
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.
Summary: This router replaced a G router I had. Set up easy. The router "found" all my equipment no problem at all. I didn't have any of the problems I read about in other reviews. As I didn't have to use tech support I didn't rate it. I'm totally pleased with the 3000.
Summary: First, I'm clueless about technology and needed to set up a new modem and wireless router. We'd just bought a new LG tv for the bedroom and I got the USB wireless dongle made for the TV so we could watch netflix.
Summary: I put off upgrading my old Linksys B/G router for many years for two reasons: 1) The don't fix if not broken theory, and 2) All the bad reviews you read about pretty much ANY router, and the general malaise that Windows networking has always seemed to be to me. Well, I shouldn't have.
Summary: I have tried a few routers in my life and found the firmware for Linksys to be easiest for customization. But when they redesigned it for Wireless N and Gigabit transfers, the quality fell like cement blocks on your feet.
Summary: Received unit and within a week it wasn't working. Called tech support and after two hours of doing this and doing that (which included having to hook the unit up to another computer), it was decided the unit was defective - no kidding?
Summary: This is the 2nd defective unit I purchased. The 1st unit failed within 2 weeks, then the 2nd failed 1 week later. With the adapter the speed ranged from 6.5 mbps, 144-300 mbps, when the problems began.
Summary: E3000 is definitely the best wireless router for home networking needs and connect multiple devices to internet and create a wireless home. In last 7 minths I have tested several aspects of this router and no wonder it is still at almost same price and a top-seller.
Summary: I bought this product with great trepidation because I saw wildly varying reviews. Being averse to dealing with tech support I had armed myself with a document I had created listing all the issues and the possible solutions to them. Ultimately I needed NONE of them.
