Linksys EtherFast BEFSR81 Broadband Router

  • Summary: It took me months to find the downside of this product, but once it was discovered it was a killer. After having lots of problem with internet games, I narrowed down the problem to having this as a router. If I connect directly to the cable modem, no problems. If I go through this router, I will get disconnected within a few minutes. Another buddy of mine with the same router also has the same problem. Linksys support wouldn't even respond.
  • Pros: Easy set up
  • Cons: No IP by Mac address, not good for internet games

Linksys EtherFast BEFSR81 Broadband Router

hoeffer, PriceGrabber

  • Summary: I got this router after breaking a Netgear router over my knee trying to get it to work with Zoomtown DSL. The Linksys set up a lot easier and is working fine. I am using it on a network using dynamic IP addressing. I bought another one for the other office's network I manage, which uses static IPs. It has not worked as well as I had hoped for static routing. If you use zoomtown, check out www.gotbroadband.org for login client downloads and info.
  • Pros: Easy to set up with Zoomtown (Cincinnati aDSL). Decent setup interface and price.
  • Cons: Large. Port numbers not easily identified from front.

Functional but could be better

S. Jackson, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: Bought to replace a superb d-link 4-port that finally died :(. As all four ports of the d-link had been filled I thought I'd add some more, so when I found this at a good price in marketplace I snapped it up. It works 'out of the box' with Vista, XP and Linux for basic stuff, as well as with an existing d-link switch, without any speed issues (which I have seen reported by others), but there are potential problems!

Very easy to use

I. PURDHAM, Amazon
21 April 2009
  • Summary: I have had one of these for about a year now. Use it to share my cable broadband. I have 3 PCs a printer and 2 Xbox 360s hooked up to it. The best thing about it is the ease of use. I did not have to set up anything at all. I just plugged in my cables and it worked straight away. It comes with a CD-Rom which I have not even opened.

Another good Linksys Product

A. A. Jones "A A Jones", Amazon
3 April 2008
  • Summary: This is my 2nd Cable router from Linksys. It is virtually identical to the 4-port version BEFSR41. Like the BEFSR41. very easy to use with Virgin media ISP, I only needed to plug it in with instant shared Internet. I did not have to use the setup CD-Rom or even power anything down, as reccomended.
