Summary: In my opinion, this is the best Linksys/Cisco router so far. I've used many of the newer ones, but none of them is as solid as this one is. First thing I did was flash it over to DD-WRT. I set up my network (2.4 band is 802.11a/b/g and the 5.4 band is pure N at 40mhz, with the same SSID. The failover works perfectly, with N capable devices running at N speeds, and slower devices relegated to the 2.4 band. I haven't had a single issue with this device since then.
Summary: Im a professional IT person and i know whats good when it comes it technical products I must say this router performs so good that I never loose connection and there is no lag at all when i game, thats the main reason why i got it. I also use my xbox 360 and my laptop. I can have more then 4 connections and still have the amazing speed and functionality.
Summary: The Cisco Linksys E3000 is an awesome router. Wi-fi Devices connect quicker to it when turned on. Signal reaches farther away than my previous router and it makes downloading media like games and movies from Netflix very easy. No lag at all. I am very satisfied with it. This brand has the best routers.
Summary: Moved up from model 1000 to this and it is much better. Much wider range. Does seem to get very warm after extended periods of use but does not appear to degrade the perfomance. Very reliable product. Would buy again!
Summary: Just so you know, I know much more about cows than computers. We have had the Linksys E3000 for 3 months as I write this. We wanted a way for more than one computer to be online at a time and this router serves us very well. We were fortunate that we purchased the Linksys E3000 as we were changing internet providers and the new provider asked us to call when the router arrived and they would help us install it. SO installation was a breeze.
