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.
Summary: I bought the E3000 in June of 2011 basically because it was on sale for $89.97 and considering the needs I anticipated in my new house, I knew my five year-old Netgear N-Router, just wasn't going to cut it.
Pros: WAS very reliable for three years at handling Internet Speeds of up to 50Mbps with no major issues.
Cons: Runs hot, needs to be rebooted regularly, would not run WiFi with active wired device running, seems to perform less reliably with more devices added, 5G band rather useless, expensive considering limitations. HIgh Price considering what it delivers, Buggy
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.
Pros: Don't know. I am sure it is a good router, but...
Cons: SSID for guest wireless access cannot be changed. It is peachXXX-guest regardless of the main SSID. This was unacceptable to my business customer. No firmware update to fix. I can't believe they hard coded the guest SSID into the firmware.
Summary: It was a great router when it was up and running, I never had to reboot it.
Pros: Flawless dual band, no problems when it was working.
Cons: Runs warm but not hot. I bought the refurb one form Cisco site direct. After about 10months it just died. I never flashed it as the linksys interface thought not great was good enough. Took a chance and put into the freezer and tried to power it up again, still dead. Cost me $80 refurb.
Cons: Drastically reduced the speed of my cable broadband internet. From modem to PC I can get download speeds of 19.50 MBPS. When I connect the router, it was dropped to 4.50 MBPS. I have tried several fixes...updated firmware, open source firmware, changed settings...no difference. Tech support was n...
Summary: Unless you enjoy tweaking the router routinely, I would go with a different router. I can not recommend anyone buy this router.
Pros: Gigabit router
Cons: First unit died in 24 hours. Second unit is limping along after a month. Second unit requires resets every 24 hours, linksys took me through a bunch of steps to fix this I'm waiting to see if it will work, but bottom line default setting don't work well. Gets very hot, had to set the unit on bott...
Cons: I have 15+ years of software development background, still I need to contact support to get it installed. - One of my XP desktop can see the new wifi network but cannot connect - Admin website some times becomes inaccessible, need reboot to regain access - Restarts automatically (every 5-6 hrs) -...
Cons: Intermittently stops working, this is the second one I've had the first stopped working completely after the first week. Now, it just stops working from time to time; time to replace. If you use the guest wireless network you can't turn off the SSID for your main network.
