Excerpt: Cannot connect to Linksys Smart Wifi account or my router local. Was barely able to set up account after several attempts but have not been able to reconnect to manage network. A very long support chat session was no help.
Summary: Absolutely horrible performance. I thought it was my cable modm but I rehooked up my old router and problems were gone. This router has poor range, drops signal, needs allot of reboots, has issues pairing with modem. Less than 1 year old.
Excerpt: I returned the product because even though it claims to be compatible with Mac it is not. Also, working with Linksys tech support was impossible! I will no longer pay for products that out source their tech employees.
Excerpt: ironically, i was just informed that " THERE AREN;T ANY REBATE OFFERS ASSOCIATED WIYTH THE EASY REBATE ID NUMBER / ORDER NUMBER YOU PROVIDED " In addition, we have been unable to successfully connect via wireless to an HP B209 Photosmart Plus.
Excerpt: Product stopped working after about 2 weeks-money wasted-had to have a local computer expert to my house to trouble shoot-had to re-install old router-he said the NEW router stopped working-will definitely NOT recommend this product
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Not Secure, Unreliable connection
Excerpt: I bought this because my Linksys wireless G had broke after 6 years. When maiking the purchase, I thought I'd get a little better speed by going one level up from the basic Linksys router to the 2nd level EA2700 but the experience has been less than good. The router is in the basement where my desktop is and the kids play on the wired xbox. We also use 3 wireless ipods and 1 iphone and 1 tivo connection. I work from a wireless laptop on the 1st floor.
Pros: Easy To Set Up
Cons: Less Distance Than The G, Linksys G Was Justas Good, Unreliable connection
I'm in shock over what Cisco just did. (somewhat resolved, I'm still updating)

Summary: My internet just went out, I've had a few resets since i purchased this router. But, other than that it has rocked hard. This time I do the reset & the Cisco Connect Program is only offering me a single choice. Which opens my browser & takes me to the new Cisco Cloud, or whatever its called. They want ALL my personal info & router admin info, password, etc. So.. I simply closed the browser without filling out a thing.
