Was This Thing Even Refurbished?

jfh "jfh", Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: This is/was my first (and only) refurbished product and my first review. I bought this router because I have a Linksys E3200 and like it very much, so I thought I would try this one for my Mom's house.

  • Summary: Stay away - It's just not reliable. I read the many mixed reviews and hoped that my experience would be different, but it wasn't. Having used and trusted Cisco/Linksys devices for so long, I hoped this EA3500 would be a worthy replacement for my rock-solid E2500.

Unsatisfactory wifi range; reset button killed it permanently.

J. Anderson "jeremy2002", Amazon
12 January 2015
  • Summary: My cheap Medialink MWNWAPR300N router gives good wifi coverage in 90% of my 3-level house. I tried the Linksys in hopes it would cover 100%. It doesn't. Using speedtest.net as my measure, I tested speeds on my desktop (which is wirelessly connected in my office) and my phone (S4) in various...

Not a good choice--unless you like malware

William Vaughn "Dr. Bill", Amazon

  • Summary: I never got to test the performance of this router. I purchased it to attempt to share my laser printer on the local area network. BUT once I installed the Linksys USB sharing application, I discovered that it installed malware on my system.

Avoid This Router

Katawampas, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: Avoid this router. There are much better routers out there. I used to love Linksys. I have several of their older routers and liked them. But now I would advise to avoid Linksys. It is a real shame they've gone down the tubes with this router. Setup should have been easy but it was frustrating.

Aragorn, Amazon

  • Summary: The router conked off within a year. Worked fine for a year or so and then bandwidth dropped to 7Mbps with both the wire and wireless. Round trip delay through my work VPN went upto 500ms, and working from home became impossible.

Junk

Shawn M., Newegg
29 November 2014
  • Summary: Well after having good Linksys routers over the years I did not think twice about getting a new one after the old one was not going to keep up with newer speeds. I was wrong. I had the cable people out 4 times trying figure out what was wrong with my connection.
  • Pros: Cannot really say there is.
  • Cons: It is junk. The interface is overbearing. It will not hold a consistent connection. Internet would drop and drop.

  • Summary: I should have read the reviews before buying but I trusted the manufacturer. The item started having problems after a few days cutting off certain items and not letting me reset them, then finally quit altogether. DON'T BUY THIS.

Horrible, very poor speed

Nikki, Amazon
1 November 2014
  • Summary: I cant believe how bad this router is. It is actually worse than the E1200 I replaced. Keeps dropping connection and extremely poor speed in all areas of the house except the room the router is in !! This is my second router in two months.
