Awful router, have been through 3 of them

PEN15, Amazon
23 July 2013
  • Summary: This is my 3rd and last E1000 router. All 3 have bit the dust after 6 months of use, whether refurbished or new. I cannot say enough bad things about this router. It is unreliable, constantly needed to be reset and simply just dies after a certain amount of time.

You get what you pay for... cheap junk

JourTodd, Amazon
24 April 2012
  • Summary: This product(refurbished) was delivered to my apartment on April 10th, and as I write this review, on April 24th, the product is no longer functional as a wifi unit. I generally don't write reviews unless I have an exceptionally good experience or exceptionally bad one, but this one fits the latter.

"Buy new"

Chuck, Amazon
14 December 2011
  • Summary: I have had some good and bad experiences with refurbish products and had to return this router due it would not work. Linksys products are actually good, however, this was probably one that perhaps slipped by quality control without being checked thoroughly.

At first good then problems started

Nicholas W., Newegg
13 November 2011
  • Pros: Easy to setup. Wired connections are great
  • Cons: I've had this router for about 6 months now and a known problem of dropping wireless connections started happening. It's random and the wired connections have 0 problems. I did not know about the wireless connection issues before purchasing this product. It is a physical problem with the router a...

4 Months then died

Carter D., Newegg
10 November 2011
  • Summary: I feel this is an anomaly, but still.
  • Pros: Sleek looking. Worked when it worked
  • Cons: I bought this for an apartment I share with four people and it died a couple of days ago. I can't even log into the router to see what is wrong. I tested it at every ethernet port in the apartment to make sure something wasn't wrong with our internet.

crashes

Nevo B., Newegg
28 May 2011
  • Summary: Wouldn't recommend buying this thing, go with a cheaper router and you would be better off.
  • Pros: Does what it should when it works...
  • Cons: Shuts off every few days, I have to reset it every time. The signal range is pretty terrible, my neighbor's router has a stronger signal in my house...

No Improvement in range over cheap Linksys

Steven M., Newegg
30 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this thinking that it would offer me improved performance over a very inexpensive Linksys that I have owned for quite awhile. This proved not the case. I returned it and bought a different brand of a $70 single band router from a local store, finding the range to be quite a bit better than...
  • Pros: Some features cheaper routers don't have
  • Cons: No improvement in range over the cheapest Linksys router and less coverage than a mid priced D-Link DIR-655 router.

i will never trust linsys

Joseph J., Newegg
17 March 2011
  • Summary: Just get something else. my roomate bought an airport extreme and it works amazingly well. its a lot more expensive, but if you can afford it it is totally worth it.
  • Pros: when it works, it does work. not amazingly well, but it worked.
  • Cons: i have had two room mates with this router, and they both were cheaply designed. The first one i had to keep restarting the router and refreshing it about everytime i used the internet on my computer and sometimes twice. the other one did the same thing, but then no matter how many times i restar...

Not worth it

Alan H., Newegg
7 March 2011
  • Summary: I will never buy this product brand again. Fool me once, shame on you - fool me twice - well, you get the drift. Interesting anecdote - talking to the tech rep, he told me that if I had a complaint, I could call customer service.
  • Pros: It works most of the time.
  • Cons: Linksys customer service is the pits. I've rarely worked with a company that gives this type of excuse drive, "that's company policy", poor service in my life. This is my second linksys router. The first they wouldn't deal with me on because it was beyond the warranty date. That turned out to be ...

Limited Bandwidth

Kevin P., Newegg
23 February 2011
  • Summary: This seemed fishy to me because if you were only connecting one device for simple browsing and email, you may not notice. This is their entry level product so maybe they just don't invest the kind of hardware/software into this one that they might with the E2000 or E3000?
  • Pros: It looks like a spaceship! A guest wireless signal is a cool idea.
  • Cons: Maybe this was just a defective product, but when I got the router it worked, but only up to about 300 kbps...on all devices connected to it. If one device was using most of that, the others would often respond by saying there was no internet connection available. I got the firmware upgraded, I t...
