Summary: This is my second Linksys router product and just like the first one (Model BEFSX41 with Firewall at another address)it works great. It doesn't have the fancy "Xmas Tree" blinking front panel like the SX but that just cosmetic..:-) The only problem (if any) is the software setup refused to bite but I don't really need it. I just plugged the thing and it was good to go. I thought the thing had quit on me 2 days later but it turned out to be Comcast signal being low.
Good Cisco quality - easy to setup with CD provided.

Summary: Linksys is a recognized brand - Good Reputation and I bought it for a good price on EBay. Both Cisco and LinkSys are names I trust in the wired networking arena. The CD took care of any possible setup difficulties. An all around good deal. I would recommend this one to all - expert and novice alike.
Summary: Documentation is sketchy, ...or TOO technical. If you have more than 4 computers sharing the same DSL line, the way to do this is to assign ascending IP addresses to multiple BEFSR41's. If your DSL modem is at 192.168.0.0, and your 1st router is at 192.168.1.1, then the second router would be at 192.168.1.2, then 192.168.1.3, etc.
Summary: Pros: Setup was a breeze when connected to cable modem. Did not use setup CD disk because other users advised not to. Rather, used the router setup menu instead. It is connected to a Linksys Cable modem with good internet speed, for my use anyways. Also running Dish-network DVR threw it with no problems. Cons: First tried setting router up to ATT/DSL service, could no get my computer to recognize it after multiple tries.
Summary: This series of router utilized a module, well designed chassis. I purchased this wired router for a project I'm working on and want it to blend in with my wireless router and cable modem, which use the same style chassis. If you don't need the expense of a wireless N network, then these units will benefit you handsomely.
Summary: i had had a very good experience with Linksys products in the past, whereas having the need to create an local network between my pcs I decided to trust them once again by buying the EtherFast BEFSR41 Router. Once again I have had a rewarding experience after buying a Linksys manufactured item.
Summary: I needed a wired router (as opposed to wireless) to enable my HDTV to receive my Netflix subscription, and this product seemed reliable. Set-up was simple, no software download or even configuration needed on my Windows XP machine (after hookup and internet failed to connect instantly, response from my XP offered their diagonstic tool, which I clicked on and it connected right away.
Summary: I prefer the wired network, so I purchased a Linksys BEFSR41 router as my home network router. The setup was pretty easy, it involved connecting this router to my COMCAST cable modem, and connecting my PC and a Laptop to two of the four ports on this router. By resetting/cycling power of the cable modem, resetting BEFSR41 router, then started up my PC and laptop, I have a home network! This router seems to handle broadband internet traffic fast enough.
Summary: When Fifty is Fine Access and exchange sensitive data from home or mobile users to a corporate network or between remote branch offices without the additional cost of special software for each computer. The router is capable of supporting up to 50 simultaneous users. Easy Setup Router setup for home or corporate office is simple. It's compatible with other VPN devices and software as well as major operating systems and standards.
