Cant access my own router

Jess Wright "home repair junky", Amazon
4 May 2015
  • 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.

  • Summary: DOA. Might be a bad power supply because nothing lights up. Sending back. Was really hoping this would be a good unit. Have had success with other refurbished units from other vendors in the past.

Nightmare after the other

CyberNerdz, Amazon

  • Summary: This was a nightmare after the other. I first got a defective router and had to jump through hoops just to get a credit back to purchase the replacement. I got the replacement today and I was very disappointed after I opened the box.

  • Summary: After six months of owning this, im findinf something else. Ive had nothing but problwms with linksys routers lately. (Unfortunate because they used to be excellent) for the first month or so it worked flawlessly and now it works great 20% of the time. The other 80% of the time I'm resetting it.

Avoid it.

Richard, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: Aside from strong signal strength and fast speeds this is the worst router I've ever dealt with. I've spent the last 8 years as a full time IT technician. I'm certified by Microsoft and several other large corporations to work on computers and networks and still have constantly had issues with this...
