I miss the classic 192.168.1.1 "advanced setup" straight out of the box

Summary: I've been using Linksys WiFi routers since the company first introduced them. It is unfortunate that on some of these newer models, the setup is not as simple as going to 192.168.1.1 and getting direct access to the "advanced" settings. It took me a while to figure out how to get around the babysitter software to do some manual configuration on this N750 router.
For that price, too good to be true?! yep... too good to be true.

Summary: I was stubbornly trying to hold on to my old router for dear life. Me and him seen some hard times, but we also seen some good times. I mean really, we've been together for over 8 years. No matter how strong our love was, he was just slow, and growing less reliable day by day. I guess that's just how those router relationships go.
Summary: I really had no issues with my old single band router but reading about duel band routers I thought it was time to to prepare for the future. Could not connect to the internet the first day, called my internet provider tech support, they said their end was working good. Somehow on the second day of trying, the router was able to connect to the internet. I then thought the router would work OK.

Summary: Router works decently enough to be worth $35 dollars as a refurbish but this item should only be considered for those in a pinch. It is advertised as a dual band router, but anytime I try to connect to the 5ghz network, the 2.4ghz shuts down and disconnects all devices on it. I have to reboot the router to correct the issue. The speeds for both networks are impressive, and a gigabit router for under 50 dollars is not a complete waste of money, if money is tight.
Definitely a consumer router; few advanced options; simple to the point of insulting

Summary: Highly restrictive firmware strongly encourages Cisco cloud. I was able to downgrade the firmware based on instructions at linksys.com, but it's a headache and does not include the "advanced" wireless settings like many other revisions. Go for a model that explicitly supports DD-WRT or Tomato, or step over to Netgear or ASUS. Linksys wants to baby (control) the customer too much.
Summary: It works OK as a router, but consistently doesn't recognize or make available the disk drive attached to the USB port. The drive is a WD Passport which is one of the most commonly used these days. In fact, I often have to login into the router as admin and repeatedly command it to tell me what drive is attached. Typically, it tells me there is no drive attached and often that there is no router (!!). After serveral attempts, it eventually recoginizes the drive.

Summary: Router came impressive. Installation was easy. My PC run well on WiFi via the router. Unfortunately, the port did not work with my VoIP phone system. Tried connecting to all the 4 ports to no success. Connected my VoIP to other router at family's house and it worked. Much regret, I have to return it.
Summary: Works pretty good early on but after a month or two devices can be connected via wifi yet connection is unresponsive. So annoying to have family coming to me several times a day with connection problems. Bought this router to replace a several year old ailing WRT54G that was great. So disappointed in this purchase and I don't recommend throwing your money away on this router.
Summary: I have had Linksys WRT54GL wireless routers for many years (these are the previous version, the routers with two antennas) and I have deployed them for lots for friends. In general it has been a good wireless router but the number of maximum NAT rules has been always an issue, at least for me. Well, perhaps it was time to upgrade to the EA3500 / N750 and enjoy the 8003.11.n capabilities.
