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.

40Mhz channel bonding makes wireless speed drop to unusable

Anthony F., Newegg
9 February 2012
  • Summary: Tried everything to make 40Mhz work but still terrible throughput. With both the latest firmware and DD-WRT. Not much wireless traffic around me and tried every channel combination. Cisco support will just frustrate the Jebus out of you and is not worth contacting.
  • Pros: Software and setup are good Nice options like QoS offered DD-WRT compatible
  • Cons: Wireless radio is bad and 40Mhz setting decreases throughput to unusable (I might have got a bad unit) Cisco Support is more than useless

Range is very short.

Viswanath A., Newegg
7 January 2012
  • Summary: When you buy a re-certified unit, remember to hit reset button. Otherwise, it may contain internet account info from previous owner. I had issues while installation because of it. Cicso should reset it when they refurbish the unit. They don't - it looks like. I figure it out the hard way.
  • Pros: Easy Set Up, nice features, affordable, nice looking
  • Cons: Very short range. My 7 year old netgear wireless b router had no range issues. With this Cisco Router, The signal strength dropped from 3 to 2 bars from 2nd to first floor and down to 1 bar in the basement. While my old router had 3 bars all over the house. I should have listened to the other rev...

"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.
