Summary: It ended up not working out for me, but I thought I'd leave as unbiased of a review as I could. Here goes: PROS: 1. It has great UI through the linksys smart wifi thing, so I didn't need to setup the network through the CD.
Good router, handy smart phone app, wish it had external antennas

Summary: This is an adequite router. I like the fact that it does both bands, the 2.4 and 5 ghz. The 5 is less cluttered because most wi fi devices use the lower band, but it's distance is shorter, so there is a trade off there. It was easy enough for me to setup and use, I am an experienced computer user.
Summary: This router might be good for a novice user, but power users can find better for less money. First, it doesn't support DD-WRT firmware and is only an 802.11n and doesn't support the newer 802.11ac.
Summary: This is just an okay product, nothing special like another reviewer has mentioned. It bogs down our system to the point that the television freezes, the computers just go black, and well, skip the tablets altogether. When it does work, it is nice but again, nothing special nor has it been fast.
Summary: While setup was simple, which any router usually is, there were a few complications. Do not purchase this router if you are a novice in setting up a network and will require support from Linksys.
3/5 for missing a correct power adapter and also for the setup not being as easy as others (took me awhile to find where to ...

Summary: This is the refurbished version of this router. Came with everything I needed (or so I thought) to get up and running. Plugged it in, removed my old router, and TA-D.. err, no power. Tried messing with the plug, different outlet, nothing.
Summary: Using this to replace the 3800HGV-B wifi access point. Good: Cheap, does the basics. Decent range. Able to "bandwidth manage" by allowing 3 devices of your choice to have priority, but no more than 3 devices. It's <$40.
