Summary: The setup process was terrible for this router. I normally purchase D-Link items, but thought this was a good deal for what it is. The D-Link would allow me to enter the IP address of the router and set it up myself. The Linksys uses their cloud based login and would not allow me access.
I bought this modem less than a year ago as I hoped it was as good as my original router

Summary: I have used Linksys even before they were bought by CISCO. I had an old modem that wouldn't quit. I had to replace because it wouldn't support the newer speeds. I bought this modem less than a year ago as I hoped it was as good as my original router.
Summary: I purchased this to replace an older Linksys G router that has performed well, but could no longer keep up. On a 60-70mbps connection, the old router could deliver the same 60-70mbps over ethernet, and hit 23mbps on G-band anywhere in the house.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM. I have an extensive history in Computers, and can tell you that this specific item I received was used. It arrived in good physical condition. Upon connecting it, it recognized with a network ID assigned by the previous owner.
I'm sure it is a great router; the reviews on here and elsewhere online ...

Summary: I owned Linksys routers in the past and had a mixed experience with them. It was time for a new router for my new house that now has more smart-enabled and wifi devices. I tried Linksys again; and much to my chagrin, it failed.... I purchased this as a "certified refurbished," model.
Summary: This router was purchased to replace a Trendnet router which was providing problems regarding coverage in my new house(plaster and mesh walls) and knowing it's heritage(It is a cloud enabled E4200v2) since I owned a E4200v1 for several years till the WAN port failed thanks to a faulty cable modem.
Excerpt: I had a Cisco-Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless-G Broadband Router which I have had for over 10 years that started to powering off. I never had any connection issues with this router. It might be my bad lock but the N900 from the start seemed slower in speed, took longer to log into the router and all those...
Pros: Easy To Set Up
Cons: Not Secure, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection
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.
