Decent router

S. Marion, Amazon
24 May 2015
  • Summary: It works fairly well. It sends a stable Wi-Fi signal; however, the signal is not strong in our basement. We don't have a large house (less than 2000 sq ft) so we thought this router would be strong throughout the house. It is strong in areas near the router, but not in other areas of the house.

Total Junk

Scott H., Newegg
7 May 2015
  • Summary: This router is garbage. I've lived with mine for over a year, using older firmware. Typically I will need to power it off 1 or 2 times a day or wifi goes dead. It randomly will refuse to load certain websites, namely Facebook and/or YouTube.
  • Pros: It looks nice.
  • Cons: slow speed, drops connections, ships with broken firmware that spies on you, inconstant wifi

Cant access my own router

Jess Wright "home repair junky", Amazon

  • Summary: Admin through the internet is a horrible idea and the implementation in this router is the reason why. I can't log into my own router without resettingthe entire thing and setting it up from scratch They will not get another dime from me after this horrible experience

P.O.S.

  • Summary: Poor Wan to Lan throughput. Cable modem directly to computer I get 300Mbps/20Mbps. With this router I get 150Mbps/20Mpbs. When I changed to the Linksys EA6300, speed increased to the 300Mbps/20Mbps that comes into my house. This is very poor at what it's supposed to do, route Wan to Lan traffic.

Product to complex for average user. Poor support, poor documentation, counterintuitive systems all round.

  • Summary: I really wanted to like Linksys products. I've had two routers and two range extenders. They are simply impossible for me to use. You need to be far more sophisticated that I am, apparently. I'm giving up. No more Linksys products for me. They are just too user UN-friendly.

the software is prettier, but not as user friendly.

  • Summary: This is another example of "not built like it used to be"... the software to administer this router is definitely prettier, however it is not as easy to navigate and even to access it one must use the web address linksys... versus the old 192.168.1.1.
