  • Summary: Four months in and already starting to show issues where my PC doesn't have internet when I turn on the computer a couple of times a week. I then have to reboot the the Linksys and its back up again. But I worry that its already starting to fail.

Documentation is really annoying and unaccurate

H. Martins "Helder Martins", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: This product was a nightmare to configure, and after configuring it, it's limited. You can't use no-ip.com to configure dynamic DNS, it only allows DynDNS. Documentation is really annoying and unaccurate. Do not bother with this.

I have a 1200 sqft home and let me tell you that signal is horrible! The six antennas may as well be 1

SemiTechSavi, Amazon

  • Summary: I should have paid attention to all the reviews about this router, but chose to not do so because refurbished products are usually put under more testing that normal manufactured items. I have a 1200 sqft home and let me tell you that signal is horrible! The six antennas may as well be 1, speeds are not media friendly, if my kid and I are both on the internet streaming video, then we both lag.

Don't buy if you want parental controls

solitism, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this router years ago when it was new to market. At that time, I was a Linksys fan and considered Linksys top of line. I'll give this router 2 stars because it has performed basic routing functions well, but problems arise when you try to use the parental controls. For some unknown reason, Linksys introduced an additional naming association with each device/client, on top of the IP and MAC addressing.

  • Summary: I have purchased several Cisco / Linksys routers in the past and they all worked great. I would always recommend Cisco /Linksys router to my friends and clients. However, that has subsequently changed. I purchased this router in February and it worked well as expected. However, after a firmware update 05/30/2014 the router no longer performed efficiently.

Can't take it anymore

Sean B., Newegg
3 July 2014
  • Summary: Find something else to spend your money on.
  • Pros: It works sometimes
  • Cons: Every time there is a power failure it takes me at least a hour to get this thing to come back online. I have owned several routers and for the money spent this really should be a better quality product. It's sad when a 3 year old 45$ router out preforms this thing. I generally don't write reviews especially for something I have owned this long but I just can't take it anymore with this piece of junk.
