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.
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. Some manufacturers have a way to turn this feature off in their routers to avoid being hacked. This router has that feature, but when you turn WPS off in the settings, it doesn't work.
Summary: Should of been more careful after reading reviews and not taken the risk. i too received a $70.00 brick, it was DOA and I spent a day trying to unbrick it to no avail. so $70 is gone and a Saturday is gone. don't buy, don't buy, don't buy. and like others, it was already out of the 90 day refurb warranty when i got it.
Summary: It does work only for 20 minutes. I was able to setup all parameters, but after that I was able to work with it only 10 minutes aprox. The router began to reset an lost any connection. I was searching over internet and I found that this is a common problem. I think is becaouse it get overheat. I´m so sorry with it. I live in Colombia and for me is more expensive to sent it back to be repalced.
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. In my case Cisco is refusing to honor the 90 day warranty, indicating the warranty expired before I bought the device from Electronista. Issues I experienced: - Overheats in the best / coolest conditions.
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. The new router should also mean better performance with video streaming.
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. If given enough time (3 or 4 days) my internet will slow from 10MB/s to 1MB/s.
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. But with my happy experience with e2000, I didn't expect it to be very serious. After intial setup and a brief test, the performance looked pretty good with better coverage and larger throughout.
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? I then had to send off the unit at my expense, have it arrive and be checked in, and only then would they send me a replacement...BUT IT WAS A REFURB! What???
