Summary: Although the router was very easy to set up. The signal was a bit weaker than my previous wrt54gs. So now I have 2 routers with not so strong distance coverage.Relying on the first thing that I was attracted to on the selling points was extended distance coverage. However I was most disappointed after I replaced the older router and to discover that the signal was in fact WEAKER.
Summary: I may have received one of the bad ones but this router is giving me bad wifi range and keeps dropping constantly. I checked other wifi devices around me to see what range they were in to avoid any conflicts and set a manual channel but still had issues. Wired connections seem to work fine for now but being that I have had so much trouble with the wireless it may end up failing completely soon. Bad purchase for me... wouldn't recommend to anyone else.
Summary: I used to think Linksys were reliable, easy-to-use routers, but this is the third one I've had in the past 5 years. Needed regular rebooting (monthly) and finally died after a year, similar to the previous two.
Summary: Definitely get the firmware update. I could not connect to my chromecast before I did, and it does run smoother and faster. It might have slowed down my freeze/crash problem, but didnt fix it.
Pros: I mainly wrote this review to let people know to get the firmware update. Works good until it crashes.
Cons: After about 6 months, the unit requires daily or every other day resets, if your a heavy traffic user. I would not recommend this unit to friends. There are better alternatives.
Summary: I bought this router and I had never had a problem with it. I think that people that are not satisfied with it is because there is gotta be some sort of interference in the location. For me in a 3500 ft area with walls and everything the signal is fast!!
Summary: This product is great on the hardware side of things Linksys is slipping in more recent firmware developments and it is becoming more limited for customization. while I do think it is great that Linksys, is making router setup easy for the casual computer user.
Pros: Works great I have had this router for over a year. The firmware crapped out and my speed broke down so I broke down and Flashed it to DD-WRT it was definitely the more recent firmware that was the problem this router screams now and I couldnt be happier
Cons: Firmware Sucks i would recommend reflashing as soon as you get it
