Scary looking but functional

Mauro, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: First time buying a refurbished product. I have been using the router for a day and I found no problems till now. The appearance of the router is scary tho. Totally scratched and the original label was taken off. The power supply is a Samsung power cord probably taken from another product.

Lousy Customer Service

Barbara B., Newegg
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Cisco is an awesome brand when they are working, but I pity you if you try to deal with their customer service.
  • Pros: Great router while it worked. Excellent connection wirelessly. Gigabit is really fast. Newegg is awesome, No complaints with Newegg. Only complaint is with Cisco.
  • Cons: Lousy customer service from Cisco. Contacted Liza with Cisco customer support. After reading from a script for over 30 minutes, she disconnect my support chat after I refused to tear apart my network to reconnect a faulty router. No warning. She didn't even give me time to copy my case number fro...

standard device

rodrigo m., Newegg
20 May 2012
  • Summary: I will not purchase overprice products from this company again. (mediocre performance compare to the wrt54g V4 and below.)
  • Pros: Easy to use and setup. compatible with most open source firmware.
  • Cons: problems streaming media while having 3 computers connected to the network using the standard firmware. Change the original firmware to TomatoUSB and seem to work some what stable until the router started overheating and shutting down. Change firmware to DD-WRT and its been working pretty stable....

Good for a single bedroom home

sgum7720, Ebay
13 April 2012
  • Summary: Excellent speeds when you are close to it. Drops drastically when you step away from it. You can't remove guest wireless when configured through cisco connect software. You cannot make the guest wireless enabled through manual configuration.

Decent Router.. expected from Linksys

Thomas C., Newegg
14 March 2012
  • Summary: Use to be brand loyal to Linksys. I thought they were the brand to stick with until I discovered TP-LINK and ASUS.
  • Pros: - Easy Setup (also easy to add other computers) - DD-WRT &Tomato compatible - clean interface - Media server capabilities
  • Cons: - High price for what you get - Runs VERY hot, surprised mine didn't burn up.. or burn up my desk - Range is subpar, actually range is no more than my old wrt54g (even though dd-wrt helped that a little bit. -

Good but runs hot

Ricky H., Newegg
10 March 2012
  • Summary: If you are worried about the heat I would get something else
  • Pros: It's a router... easy to set up
  • Cons: Run's really hot... internet was cutting out, thought it was the router but it turned out to be my modem, I bought a laptop cooler mat for good measure, just my OCD!

Good, but doesn't support IPV6

Paul S., Newegg
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Very surprise that it doesn't support IPV6!
  • Pros: Purchased this for my mom for Christmas. It appears to be a later version of the WRT610n, which has served me well for years.
  • Cons: Even thought it appears to be a later version of WRT610N, it does not support IPV6. Judging from what I read from the manufacturer website, IPV6 will probably not be available in the future unless you switch to a third party firmware like tomato. USB speed is also megaslow, don't expect anything ...

Pitiful range

Brian M., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Summary: Unless you live in a small apartment, I would recommend something else with external antennas.
  • Pros: The router looks very nice and seems to run TomatoUSB very well. If you have a small apartment or will be using wireless in the same room as the router, then this would be an excellent choice.
  • Cons: Since the antennas are internal, the range on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz is pitiful. The higher 5GHz band barely penetrates one interior wall of my house and really isn't usable unless you are in the same room. 2.5GHz does travel farther, but it is a much weaker signal than my older (and much cheaper) ...
