Summary: This was my first dual-band. This router stopped working recently. I had dd-wrt on it for the last 2 months or so. It seemed nice. I've already noticed a weird disconnect on the replacement for this one... I actually wouldn't mind buying this again.
Pros: This router was great for me. It was my internet that sucked. It held wifi connections for a long time. It covered the whole house well. Even to the master bedroom going through two walls. This router really came in handy. My internet used to come from a 2.4ghz radio. I eventually turned off the ...
Cons: I remember how upset I was about this router. 30 days after I bought it; I got an email advertising the router for 20 bucks less. ARG. I never had a chance to see gigabit speeds either. It went down before it's time was up!
Summary: there were some issues installing because the old network information was confusing the installation software, but after i removed the old info by doing a reset, i was able to set up my own settings.
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,...
Pros: Decent throughput and ping times, better than my old router actually. Doesn't overheat like my old router did (so far anyway). I like the overall design. Was able to use with a Gigabit switch connected to one of the ports like I wanted and they play well together.
Cons: Does occasionally drop connections, but it's very rare. Usually only happens now and then when I'm doing online gaming (with QoS enabled). That might be due to my ISP though.
Summary: I picked this up because it was a good deal and I needed to replace a d-link router that was starting to give me problems. When it was set up, I used the cisco set up software instead of following my gut and do it over the browser. The "guest" network was broadcasting it's SSID and unprotected.
Pros: Easy to install, easy to operate, dual band service. Has a 2nd WiFi "guest "network capability.
Cons: Set up can be tricky depending on how you do it.
Summary: I didn't try this router with the stock firmware, I immediately flashed DD-WRT then Tomato. It's only been running for an hour, but it's very fast. I'm getting transfer speeds around 17MB/s (vs. ~11MB/s with a Belkin N600 that was connected at 300Mbps).
Summary: Updating the firmware might fix the problems with connecting more than one 360 at a time but I'm too lazy to do that. I might if I had assurance that it would fix the problem for sure. But even so with that and the difficult UI I can't give it 5 eggs. Still a great router well worth the price.
Pros: Well built, good signal strength. Dual band is nice. Set up wizard is easy to use.
Cons: Has some weird issues when connecting more than one Xbox 360 through the wireless. It will drop the second one connecting until you run the network test on the 360 itself. It will then drop the first one unless it is turned on and connected while you run the network test. I recommend running a ca...
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: I bought this to be a router behind my AT&T 2WIRE U-verse router because I couldn't stand how slow the 2WIRE was, now that I have a Synology NAS and I have backup set to occur over the network. This works great.
Pros: Fast, dual band, customizable with tomato usb, great price when on sale.
Cons: Wish it came with another USB port? and maybe a few more LAN ports.
