False advertising

tubercolosis69, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • 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.

Your Typical Mediocre Router (with a huge firmware glitch)

Harsh Texture, Amazon
8 July 2012
  • Summary: I don't understand why its so hard to find a decent router. I stayed with the Linksys/Cisco product family for years since my companies all used Cisco VPNs and in the recent past not all routers were compatible.

Read this if your wifi speed is very slow for a new E1500 out of the box

Lupo, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: I connected the router successfully without any problems, but as soon as I started testing the wifi speed on a laptop and kindle fire I realized that the speed was very slow - e.g. 100-250kpbs downloading and a bit faster uploading.

It's fine but not for me

Jason J. Miller, Amazon
28 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this router to use as a secondary router off of my FiOS modem/router. Mainly I wanted this for the 802.11n for additional intranet speeds and to set up a guest zone to easily allow guests internet access without having to "hack" my own network security.

Range Inadequate

We're Here, Amazon
23 September 2011
  • Summary: I've had it for about six weeks. It was easy to set up and it works fine. The range though is lousy. It replaced a Lynksys WRT54G. That one had double the range.

Good, but lacks many advanced features

J. Preece, Amazon
1 July 2011
  • Summary: I replaced an older Linksys router with this model and as far as your basic setup-and-go router, this one is pretty good. Installation was painless with the CD, however I don't like that you really MUST use the CD to set it up.

Nothing Particularly New Or Exciting!

H. Pierce, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: I was hoping that this router would provide a suitable replacement to that supplied from my ISP. Unfortunately, I did not find it any faster, and it has no extra features than my current one has. Like other Linksys, this router lacks capacity to simultaneously use WPA and WEP.

  • Excerpt: Промучался с ним долго (для настройки работы в билайне) - ставил разные прошивки, курил форумы.
  • Pros: Стабильно работает Качественно собран Понты :) На провайдере АПМ работал отлично.
  • Cons: Адрес можно писать только цифрами. С Билайном работает как попало - режет скорость даже по проводам.

  • Excerpt: Если не заморачиваться с всякими маршрутами, и у провайдера один ip адрес сервера или можно подключиться по pppoe, то неплохой вариант, необычный дизайн, бренд. Проверить скоростные характеристики не получилось, тариф не позволяет, да и мерить скорость на l2tp..
  • Pros: Дизайн, качество сборки.
  • Cons: Прошивка, она не позволяет прописывать адрес сервера буквами, только ip адресом, причем только одну штуку (речь идет о pptp и l2tp), проблема с прописыванием маршрутов (пишет ошибку при добавлении маршрута), например для локальной сети, по dhcp он маршруты получил, но локалка провайдера работает ...
