Received NO installation disc and no way to password protect

star2nite, Amazon
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...

No support from Linksys

Steve H., Newegg
23 March 2014
  • Pros: Router works well.
  • Cons: The firmware on this router has a major security flaw, which is exploited by the "Moon Virus". Linksys claimed that they were going to issue a firmware fix, but they haven't done it yet. In fact, about a year ago they have pulled the latest firmware from their website - you can't download any fir...

Don't Buy - HEAT problems

Ron C., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Pros: Reasonable price, it if worked. Unfortunately, it doesn't.
  • Cons: This wireless router is a waste of money!!! It heats up and then I have to reboot it, time and time again. I even have it sitting up on 4 blocks to get more air flow under it, but that doesn't resolve the problem. There are MANY complaints on the internet about the heat problems, with the only re...

Waste of money

Cary D., Newegg
2 December 2012
  • Summary: From now on I am going to stick with brands I trust and know are good.
  • Pros: 5 GHz band works great.
  • Cons: 2.4 Ghz is absolutely worthless. Devices get dropped from the 2.4 band all the time, or even though it says there is an internet connection there really isn't. When you do finally get a connection it is extremely slow and spotty. I have switched back the D-link 524 I got in 2008 which blows this ...

Weak Signal Strength (Through Walls)

Yevgeny B., Newegg
25 October 2012
  • Summary: If you bought the e3000 and are having problems, then don't blame Linksys, it is not their fault. It's your own fault (just like it is mine), for not acknowledging the negativity of other owners' experiences with this device and having blind trust in a formerly great brand.
  • Pros: Looks better than it works
  • Cons: Terrible Signal, Very Hot This router was meant to be an upgrade/replacement to my old Linksys WRT54G. I have a small 700sqft 1-bedroom apartment. The old Linksys WRT54G worked perfectly ANYWHERE in my my Apt on ALL my wireless devices (iphone, laptops, tablets) The e3000 only worked well in the ...

Careful

David C., Newegg
6 October 2012
  • Summary: Sent for a return. Hoping the round 2 will go better.... Be careful on this one. It's a gamble.
  • Pros: It looks niceish.
  • Cons: The device did not work out of the box. Numerous issues... 1) CD was warped in the box 2) The software could not detect the router 3) The device had the previous owners secure network still setup. 4) Resetting the device (which required looking up the 30/30/30 rule) reset the network, but I still...

User Review

KEVIN C., Newegg
5 October 2012
  • Pros: Looks Nice
  • Cons: Arrived doa with the flashing power LED. Apparently they don't refurbish them and just put them in a new box and send them out. Newegg was great and I was able to send it in for a replacement. Will update when replacement arrives.
