Poor choice as a refurb.

S. Glass, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • 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.

E3000 (refurbed)

Sean McAdam, Amazon
29 October 2012
  • 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 looked at several wireless routers and the E3000 has the best specifications and reviews for the money. The set up was easy and quick, however I'm not sure I see any performance improvement over my old "G" Linksys router. I am in an area of fair to poor internet service (AT&T) and was hoping that this router would give me some improvement especially with streaming Netflix movies. We have seen a slight improvement with not dropping the movie streaming.

My old linksys was better than this.

Shu-Yung Wu, Amazon
6 June 2011
  • 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.

Configuration shortcoming

Giok H. Tjoa "electronic freek", Amazon
6 June 2011
  • 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.

Take Caution buying a Refurb

James M., Amazon
6 June 2011
  • 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).

USB Port is worthless

Matthew, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • 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: You have to be careful with Linksys/Cisco. If you move or change internet service, you have to set it up again, and Linksys will charge you 29.95 to give you the instructions on how to do it. Keep your receipt so that it can be returned if there is anything wrong with it, because their customer service is fee-based.
