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...
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.
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: I picked up a Linksys E3000 to upgrade my aging but very reliable Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. The old router has served me very well but the time had come to move up to the improved performance and better range of Wireless N. I've also begun watching NetFlix online lately.
Summary: I had a serious problem with my E3000 several months after installing it. I experienced momentary disconnecting and reconnecting on WiFi every several minutes. Cisco tech support claimed it was a configuration problem, which is not covered under warranty.
Summary: As the other reviewers mention the quality of these refurbished units is inconsistent. If you get lucky, great, but you are taking a gamble. The devices have a habit of showing up DOA, working inconsistently, or failing after a few weeks.
Summary: I have owned an E3000 for over a year and this router has numerous problems. Most notably the router slows down your internet speed over time. The problem is temporarily resolved if you turn the router off then turn it back on again, but over time the internet connection slows down again.
Summary: I bought this router to replace my refurbished linksys e2000 which is actually still working well for me. I just wanted to upgrade my home network to dual band with better coverage. I read about the overheating issue about this router on internet.
