EVERY GRANDPARENT (OR PARENT) SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE!.

  • Summary: The installation instructions were excellent. Even though I'm a non-technical retiree, I was able to follow the directions and get everything setup in about 3 hours. Given my considerable ignorance, that's pretty fast. The Smart WiFi functionality exceeded my expectations. I'm able to provide internet access to my grandchildren and feel confident that I know, and can control, the various devices that can connect, the days and times they have access and the sites that are...

  • Summary: I have purchased MANY CISCO/LINKSY products. for the most, these items worked wonderfully. I have supported these items and products and suggested these to my friends and co-workers. however, these new routers are TRASH. I have tested thoroughly these items and found them to be too costly, and perform poorly for that cost. I would suggest the NetGear NightHawk. until Cisco/LinkSys gets back on top of things.

  • Summary: I've had this router for quite a while, and after Linksys changed the set up to Linksys smart wifi, I've had constant issues, where I have to reboot the router, Its also much harder with the Linksys smart wifi page to add a wireless device. Good Luck if you buy it, I used to think Linksys had the best products, but after what I paid for it, and it not even being able to wirelessly hookup with another Linksys product, and constant dropping issues I don't think I would buy...

Amazed at it's sleek compact casing-high end technology-ease of use!.

  • Summary: This is a very functionally adequate router. It's compact and doesn't need those antennaes sticking out from it. It uses the most advance technology and built in applications to give me an array of possiblities in wireless routing. I especially like the way it allows for 'guest' access window separate from the main access point. The price is decent and the qualtiy is spectacular.

Junk

  • Summary: In my opinion this router is not up to par to have the Linksys name on it, let alone Cisco, the global standard in Networking. Cisco should be ashamed to have their name on this.
  • Pros: Nothing that I can think of since it never worked right.
  • Cons: First let me say I am CCNA certified and 2 tests into CCNP so my knowledge of networking is higher than average. This product had issues connecting devices to it right off the bat. I had to do a reset to finally get devices to connect. When I was finally able to get machines connected I could not get over a 3Mbps connection on a 20Mbps line (using a web based test or the built in testing tool). The router would continually drop connectivity and give me error 2315. Thi...

  • Excerpt: Had some minor issues setting up the unit, but overall the unit is a speed demon, very impressive with all that it does. Glad that I purchased it, especially from B&H, have been a loyal customer since the 80's - the only disappointment is that it has been reduced in price on line by around $15.00. Oh well......
  • Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection, Smart Features
  • Cons: Cisco Web Site Set Up
