Summary: Actually haven't tried using it yet but the ac adapter that came with it was a samsung? I understand that this is a refurbished product but I would still expect it to come with OEM accessories. Also the CD that came with it was not a manufacturer produced CD but one that was copied onto a burnable CD. Router had scratches all over it and still had previous owners information in the set up fields.
Summary: All of the units arrived and were in working order, however one of the power supplies (wall wart) was dead. I asked for a replacement, but had to ship the whole unit back to get a replacement part. What a pain. :-/ It would be great if you could just replace the faulty part.
Summary: I've been a strong proponent of Linksys for reliability to my friends and family, and I've owned the original WRT54, and moved up to the WRT160NL, which was a real workhorse, and after reading the reviews on it, I decided to replace the WRT160NL with this E3000. I had high expectations for it, as people have said it's a great router, with dual bands in 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz, but my experiences have been terrible.
Summary: My issues with this router stem not so much from the quality of the router itself (it's actually very good when it's working properly), but rather with how little effort Cisco/Linksys put into "refurbishing" their products. From my experience, Cisco's/Linksys' quality assurance standards are so astoundingly low that they have no qualms about sending you a bricked router as was what happened in my case (more on this after my review).
Summary: This isn't a bad router if you just plan on using the wireless. The setup was easy, although there are some design flaws with the software. You can go through the wizard or set the values manually. You can't really do both. I got good coverage all throughout my house. However, the USB port on the drive is wortless. The throughput isn't even to USB 1.0 standards, even though they claim it is USB 2.0.
Summary: This router does not allow "Channel Bonding" at 2.4GHz only at 5GHz. Therefore, 300Mbps speed CAN NOT be achieved at 2.4GHz. "Customer Support" rerouts you to a "pay for answer site"; answer from here is worthless as well.
Worked well as a 2nd router to my home network -ALMOST!

Summary: At first I was pleased with this product. The Connections software was simple to use, but in the end I went straight to the device's advanced setup webpages and configured everything there. Admittedly I have advanced IT skills, but I found it straight-forward to configure and I enjoyed the wide range of configuration options: Separate passwords and configuration for each band, and all the port forwarding options seem to be there.
Summary: This was bought to replace a Linksys WRT160N router. I've persevered with the E3000 for a number of months, but keep having too many fallouts and slow connection speeds. Initial problems in setting up the wireless printer to the router (despite printer and router only being c.4 feet away from each other). Printer simply would not recognise the network. Eventually got it working after an hour or so.
