Summary: This is the exact same hardware as the older Linksys WRT610N V2 model and I've used a couple of those for the last several years with good results. It works great for running DD-WRT firmware The E3000 which was purchased used here on E-Bay is being used in a home network setting as the router, switch, 2.4 and 5.8Ghz AP. Having a gig bit switch is very nice when transferring and backing up large files over the network. The wireless section has good range.
Summary: I bought this router to replace the netgear router that i had. With my old one iseemed to have to reset it every couple of days and have not had to do that with this one yet and i have more devices on this one than i did the netgear.
Summary: Very easy to setup with great features for advance users. Could not get my Windows Vista laptop to connect using a secure wifi network but my Windows 7 laptop works great and so do our iPhones. Able to stream YouTube and other large data hog sites at the same time on several devices at once.
Summary: I had the old wireless g technology and it was open to all to jump on. So they slowed down my system substantially. The only benefit I see to this is the guest user capability and the security. No additional speed. But it may be that I am using both computers wired and wireless are about 6-10 years old buying new ones soon that may increase the speed.
Summary: its not great for gaming easy to set up if your on a wifi network with this its kinda difficult unless you know what your doing so rember your password and you will be fine over all is it worth 139.00 no its not its worth 75.00 all together but its good on signal boosting
Summary: The Linksys E3000 replaced a Linlsys G class router that I had used for many years. The E3000 has much better range, was easy to install and allows guest logons which is a nice feature. It works well with G and N devices, simultaneously. The only reason that I did not give it fives stars is because the 1st router was defective. When I tried to update to the latest firmware the router locked up and became interoperable. I contacted linksys support and was not impressed.
