Excerpt: It attached to the old system ok, but it will not talk to the buttons on the WPS systems. I have an old single 150 router extension and it will not recognize the router. I went on the software tools and it can't see the router when I push the WPS button. Everything else is ok.
Good router but not really a refurbished as mentioned
29 September 2014
Summary: I received the router in time as promised. I ordered the refurbished with the knowledge that it will be factory refurbished and so it whould be like new. When I received the router it had scratches on the body, the label at the bottom of the router was missing (the password and other details), the router was not reset the factory setting and worst thing is that the CD/DVD that was shipped with the router was corrupt.
It seems to be fine, but i did have one issue with it
26 July 2014
Summary: It seems to be fine, but i did have one issue with it. The router reset itself the other day and only wired connections were working. I had to set it up all over again for the wireless to work. Hopefully this does not happen again.
Summary: While I like the functionality of this router, I feel the advertisement for it is a cheat. I purchased the EA2700 because it was advertised as having a signal "strong enough for a large house or a business". This is only true if your computer is directly in front of the router! I have had to purchase a wireless extender just to get the weak signal from this device to cover my entire house. Once I got the signal boosted it was fine.
5 was fine and I did everything I could think of (upgrade ...

Summary: I purchased two. "LIT" the first one up , configured etc... and for the life of me could not get the 2GHZ radio to work. 5 was fine and I did everything I could think of (upgrade firmware, downgrade firmware, reset etc...) and was not able to get the 2GHZ to light up. Plugged in the 2nd EA2700 and both radio's worked fine and have been up and running for a week. I am returning the non working unit and will replace it with another 2700.
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: 5Ghz will drop when used simultaneously with 2.4Ghz. I have to reboot router in order to make it work simultaneously. Even when it works, 5Ghz will just die out after some days of use, maybe related to heat problem? It runs somewhat hot. I do not like the linksys software thing going on with all recent lineups of linksys routers. Range/speed is OK, but wish it was stronger. Currently looking at high-end N900 or AC1750 routers to pick one up on sale.
Pros: Affordable, moderate wireless range/speed, wired network works smooth
Cons: 5Ghz will drop if used simultaneously with 2.4Ghz, moderate wireless range/speed, no third party firmware, runs somewhat hot
