Summary: I have a Cisco E3000 that I'm comparing this against. I have a mixture of wired and wireless computers in the house. Most of them work flawlessly with the EA3500, but I had major issues with my Transformer TF101 tablet. Some background on myself : I'm a software engineer with a lot of experience working on network protocols. I'm very experienced with networking, especially home routers.
Summary: I got this router to replace my aging Linksys E1000 router, but my old E1000 matched or outperformed this router on every level. My primary concerns were wirelessly connecting my laptop (which is on the same floor as the router) and my basement PC. After setting up the EA3500 & running about two dozen speed tests at SpeakEasy.net on each computer, the laptop's speed was reduced by about 2Mbps (from 18-20Mbps to 16-17Mbps), while the basement PC's performance went down by...
Summary: I ordered this router specifically to upgrade my system when I bought an Oppo BDP-95 Blue Ray player to stream Netflix video. After a week of frustration when it repeatedly failed to connect(even though I was doing everything correctly), I was advised by Oppo tech support that they have had other persons report the same problem with Linksys routers. If you want to use your WiFi with Oppo equipment, Oppo tech support is recommending using a D-Link router.
Summary: I am used to D link had it for 10 years but wanted to update my wireless router for home use. Tried a different brand and the labtop downstairs listening to music was slower, couldn't watch a video without it breaking up. Upstairs where the router was at worked fine. But even my old dlink did not give me these problems downstairs.
Summary: (I did not buy this router from Amazon, however I did recently purchase it from another store.) This is a good router; however its value is compromised by the "Cisco Connect" software. My advice if you buy this router: do not touch the CD and stick to manual setup. I ran "Cisco Connect setup" initially and I was not amused.
Summary: I was hoping for extreme performance and reliability based on my previous experience with Linksys. Instead, my HD (1080p) videos were lagging and I was loosing connection even after Firmware upgrade. For initial Setup I had to use Cisco Connect software that doesn't allow different password for Admin account and for Wi-Fi ... to do it you have to manually configure your router.
Summary: http://media.grc.com/SN/sn-360-lq.mp3 Kolla 11 minuter så får ni veta om problemet. Cisco router kontaktar cisco utan att du vet det och uppdaterar sig själv. Lyssna så får ni se själva. Cisco spionerar står även i avtalet men det läser ju inte folk.
