Summary: I bought this to replace my linksys wrt54gs modem . Man did I make a mistake this version 2.1 can not be loaded with DD-RT firmware so if you need to get the v1 model . I have it hooked up as my main router as I have a N card now and needed the extra bandwith but I have my old router hooked up as a 2nd router and can control a lot more wireless features . So if you just want a basic router this one will due.
Summary: Before I purchased Cisco I was using belkin 75 mbps wireless N router. I hooked a Roku HD player with my TV and started viewing movies but some times it break the connnectivity and I contated the Roku HD dealer. They advised me to increase internet speed from 3 mb to atleast 10 mb. I increased the speed to 20mb but the result is same. Lastly I changed the router with CISCO but unfortunatly the result is same.
Summary: Comprei o produto pq achei q ele teria um longo sinal de alcanca, mas infelizmente ele nao é tao bom nesse quesito. Achei bom a forma de configura-lo, e o proprio produto q determina a senha para conectar a ele, ou seja, a senha e tao dificil q e quase impossivel de alguem invadir a rede.
Good router for small space, don't spend more than $20
28 November 2011
Summary: This is the lowest tier model so performance and features won't be as great as the better models. I can get 117mbps down within 15 feet, but after that, the signal drops fast. This is ideal for small space, not a whole house.
Summary: Simpled down web interface which is great but lacks the very obvious need for guest acct mgnt. not sure what cisco was thinking. as for communication distance, I would say very average. I have 3000sqft home and you start losing bars as soon as you leave the room. Identical performance to my dlink N router that is 2 yrs old.
Pros: Built and managed by Cisco - reputable company
Cons: have to use Cisco Connect to manage guest acct...defaults to ON so would be frustrating to novices
Summary: I was looking for an upgrade to my Linksys WRT54G wireless router, which I was very happy with. I wanted wireless N, a reasonable range and reliable connection. After some agonizing I settled for this one out of brand loyalty and of course price. First impressions were good: it was glossy black with blue lights (my young son thought it was super cool) and all of the wiring was neat.
Summary: In three words- poor signal strength. I bought this as my laptop was struggling with a signal and nothing changed after installing this product. It was only then that I found that I needed the next model up if I wanted to improve signal strength, something both Amazon and Which? failed to mention in their reviews. Basically if your upgrading your wireless router this product probably won't deliver and like me left disappointed.
Summary: The router works fine. It was easy to set up and so far it's working without any problems. However, if you don't live in the UK notice that the adapter is only for UK outlets, so you'll have to spend money on a new one.
