Don't be fooled.

  • Summary: Read the reviews. Especially if you want to stream high definition video. Long story short: it's a wireless n router without the n capabilities.

Trouble Holding Connectivity, Uploading/Downloading Packets

MaskedMaru, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: This item has very good range and is fast if you use it for downloading data only. Routers need to do more, however, and that is where this router fails. We have a Slingbox at home, and use it to remote access our TV, meaning we download the video stream from home and the home router needs to upload...

It worked for awhile.

Dominic Y., Newegg

  • Summary: Had to power cycle this router a few times. It finally died while we were away from the house, I'm guessing from a storm. It gave us an excuse to put DD-WRT on a WRT54G and run that rather smoothly, as my experiences show.
  • Pros: B/G/N wireless
  • Cons: Dropped connections many times, power cycled Hit by lightning and died

Router works well but is difficult to set up

garyncarol2, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased the E1000 Cisco router because it had more than one port, had wireless capability and was cheap. I paid only $20.00 for a refurbished unit. It was very difficult to set up in that the instructions were not adequate.

Good Router So Far.....

K.hang, Amazon

  • Summary: Before this E1000 I had a crappy netgear G router. It drop connections like crazy. I bought this one refurbish because it was cheap and I never used a cisco/lynksys before, so if it turned out to be crap I wouldn't lose that much.

good for the first year

Ellis R., Newegg

  • Summary: A wireles router that costs > $50 shouldn't die after 1 year.
  • Pros: Works well, fast as advertized
  • Cons: Died after about 1 year. All lights blinking. Rebooting helped a few times, now nothing. I think it overheated. It didn't see heavy use, nor was it stuffed in a closet or crowded. It was on a dry counter with good circulation.

  • Pros: works, after complex configuration, as a wifi access point with a fios actiontec main router.
  • Cons: can't reach my android phone wifi 12 ft. away out the window with more than one bar. 100% at 6 ft.

Wireless Keeps dropping connection

Anonymous, Newegg
15 November 2011
  • Summary: Was thinking about flashing dd-wrt, but ill probably just purchase a refurbed/open box and do it on that instead. RMA'ed this unit.
  • Pros: When connected to the wireless, it worked like a charm.
  • Cons: Wireless kept dropping signal like a bad habit. I did everything Cisco/Linksys website troubleshooting said to do to fix it. Nothing worked; switched to newer firmware, set up own settings in default web browser.. nothing helped.

First one is a dud - trying again.

Dan Schwarcz "DocDanPA", Amazon

  • Summary: Reading the reviews, I knew going in that this was a gamble, but the price was low and the payoff seemed worth it. The router arrived with someone else's password and login; warned by comments here, I reset it and was eventually able to get it working.
