Excerpt: Not as easy to set up as my last router, and the signal strength is a lot poorer. I used to have a very strong signal but this new router, set up in the same location, only gives me a "poor signal strength". I'm rather disappointed.
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection
Summary: A reliable gigabit router. Great for wired applications or use as a switch. Wi-fi range is mediocre. the linksys smart wi-fi login feature is a royal pain in the a... It more often than not refuses to log in telling me that my IE 11 or Firefox 21 is outdated and they dont support it. then after hitting refresh a pile of times it changes its mind and lets me in. the last problem throws into question the wisdom of buying a product with this feature.
Summary: I liked the old er style better; different interface. Then and now I'd like alittle more literature on Domain server client setups, for IT guys like me who run small businesses and want to add wireless to the domain as well as guests. DNS is always a trick. Good machine.
Excerpt: Had to disable 5GHz to get reliable coverage. Even then, coverage drops off significantly when I am more than 15 feet away from the router in other rooms. Didn't want to go through trial and error, so, will keep.
Product Title & Description Contain Incorrect Info

Summary: Both the product title and specifications state that this product has a USB interface. It does not. If you look closely at the Linksys product comparison, the next step is the lowest model to include USB ports. Read closely before you buy.
Excerpt: The product is not what I thought it would be. The connection is not good in some parts of my apartment. I should be able to get a signal anywhere in my apartment but that's not the case. I should be getting a stronger signal than the other router. This one replaced my other router. On a recommendation I purchased this product. I could've kept my old router because the signal is about the same in other parts of the house.
