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...
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...
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: please heed my advice and don't purchase from this site as they will take your money and not provide you with any help when their product is bad
Cons: the device didn't work, tried to return it and they sent it back to me after I submitted my RMA and device without anything done to it, again contacted them and they were no help, I'm now taking my complaints to the better business bureau as this site is a fraud
Cons: Where to start? This router is a disaster. - Speeds are junk, both N and G I get awful speeds with this...almost dial up speed across the LAN. - Runs way too hot, I put it in the basement no where near anything and its 65 down there, and this thing is still hot to the touch. - Cisco RMA process i...
Summary: This is the worst router ever! I have $15 Airlink routers that are more reliable than this one. I've flashed this unit with 2 different WW-DRT firmwares, and while all the extra features are nice, neither one gave any improvement in performance.
Cons: - Drops stationary wireless connections constantly - Throughput speed is poor - Two different DD-WRT firmwares made no difference
Pros: Non, I have not had one of these shipped to me work yet.
Cons: This was not a bargain at any price. The first one failed with doing random resets within a few minutes of operation. Received a replacement, it too is doing the same thing. After 3-4 minutes the router starts to do random resets.
Summary: Contacted newegg. Reply was it's past the return period so too bad. Call the manufacturer.
Pros: Seems to work ok
Cons: I started setting it up and kept seeing odd things like the SSID was TinyDeer and other settings didn't appear to be defaults. I ran for a couple of days but the SSID botherd me because most routers use the maufacturers name or admin or something. I bothered me enough to do a factory reset and it...
Summary: E3000, received on Mar 1, attempted today, Mar 3 to go live without success. I'm unable to provide any real data on the E3000 reliability etc etc. I'm rating this a '1' as I, 'mostly' Linksys support via 800.326.7114 has been able to make this work.
Pros: Nice looking, No external/protruding antennas, In reality, 'Unknown' as it never worked - for clarification, please see 'other thoughts'.
Cons: Linksys support = horrible provided Setup disk = didn't work Manual setup 'also' didn't work
