TechBargains Review - Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band N Router

17 April 2014
  • Summary: We have mixed feelings about the E2500. On one hand, the asking price isn't egregious for a simultaneous dual-band Wireless-N router, and the only way it could be easier to use is if it came with robotic limbs to take itself out of the box and plug itself in. The Cisco Connect software makes it incredibly easy to make changes to the E2500's settings, and even advanced users will appreciate the GUI frontend.
  • Pros: Streamlined Exterior:, Ease of Use:, Dual-Band:, Price:
  • Cons: Performance:, No Gigabit Ethernet:, Sparse Feature Set:

Linksys E2500 Multiple User N600 WiFi Router

22 November 2012
  • Summary: Though far from perfect, the Linksys E2500's ease of use, nice design, and reasonable price make it a very good router for a small home or apartment.
  • Pros: The affordable true-dual-band Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band N router is easy to use, thanks to the included Cisco Connect software and a well-organized Web interface. The router is also stylish and compact.
  • Cons: The Linksys E2500's range is short and its 2.4GHz-band performance is subpar. The included Cisco Connect utility provides limited access to the router's features, doesn't work in sync with the Web interface, and requires a live Internet connection to work.

Cisco Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band Wireless-N Router

PC Magazine
20 May 2012
  • Conclusion: With the Cisco Linksys E2500 Advanced Dual-Band Wireless-N Router, users upgrading from last year's E2000 give up an antenna and Gigabit Ethernet but gain simultaneous dual-band connectivity, better ease of use, and better 2.4Ghz-band performance. It's a good router, but better throughput at the 5 GHz would make it better.
  • Pros: Sustains good signal strength at distance. 2.4 GHz performance much better than that of the E2000. Easy setup and management.
  • Cons: No Gigabit Ethernet. Performance at 5 GHz band not as robust as that of the E2000, last year's model. No bridge or AP mode.

Review: Cisco Linksys E2500 Router

27 October 2011
  • Excerpt: From the first time I saw the sleek and sexy design for the E2500 router I knew I was going to like it, even if only from an aesthetic point of view. It’s slim with a modern design and simplicity that goes against the expected boxiness of most networking devices. Sure enough when it was plugged into my wall and tucked away in a corner it did look very nice indeed. That got me to thinking – why it was so nice to look at?
  • Pros: Improved video performance, sleek attractive design, easy set up, guest pass system.
  • Cons: No Internet modem on board.

  • Conclusion: Com o Cisco Linksys E2500, usuários que estão fazendo upgrade do E2000 perdem uma antena e Gigabit Ethernet mas ganham conectividade dual-band simultânea, mais facilidade no uso e melhor desempenho 2.4 GHz. É um bom roteador, mas um rendimento maior a 5GHz o tornaria ainda melhor.
  • Pros: Sustenta boa qualidade de sinal, mesmo à distância. Desempenho 2.4 GHz muito melhor que o do E2000. Instalação e administração fáceis.
  • Cons: Sem Gigabit Ethernet. Desempenho a 5 GHz não é tão robusto quanto no E2000, modelo de 2010. Sem modos bridge ou AP.

Roteador Linksys E2500 é ótima opção para redes domésticas e pequenas empresas

11 February 2013
  • Conclusion: O roteador Linksys E2500 é uma opção interessante para quem quer montar uma rede sem fio em pequenas empresas e também uma rede doméstica. A intensidade do sinal se mostrou estável mesmo com o roteador dentro de uma sala fechada. Só não entendemos porque as portas Ethernet não são padrão Gigabit. Vários dispositivos, como consoles de videogames poderiam usar a velocidade do padrão Gigabit. Talvez a empresa quis manter um custo menor.
  • Pros: Boa intensidade de sinal;, Programa de configuração fácil de usar;, opera em duas bandas de frequência;, design minimalista.
  • Cons: Não usa portas padrão Gigabit;, Interface Cisco Connect está em inglês.
