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've had this router for 11 months. It worked pretty well during that time period, but one day, it just wouldn't turn on. A wireless router is an essential in my household, it's an every day, all day device that powers phone, TV, internet, etc. Since the router was still under warranty, I called Linksys. They would not expedite shipping a replacement to me without me paying for expedited shipping fees.
Summary: Out of the box the E-1500 worked well with the pair of Cisco AE-1000 N adapters as well as the various G devices we have...shortly after we started having problems like random dropouts ( it would say we had intenet but we didnt, manually reset the adapter and it worked again/all was fine at the modem end and G adapters) and odd random slowdowns, I opened the Cisco connect software and was notified there was an important update for the router, I followed the instructions...
Summary: Wired I am getting high speed downloads. Wireless I am on or even below dial up speeds. Sucks I wasted my money on this item. The WRT54G was faster but giving problems, it was back when Linksys built real products
Summary: A bit about me; I'm a software engineer, twenty years experience. I've always built my own computers, as well as for a few friends. Now, having owned Netgear wireless routers and having been left with the feeling that under the hood, the software is in terrible shape and where those routers are in storage in England and I'm in Sweden, I thought I'd try a Linksys to see what they're like. And what they're like is : UNCONFIGURABLE. Now, it may just be me.
