Flawed product + Poor tech support = Failed company

Mike, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this router since 2012 and everything worked great until their firmware update. Now my speeds have diminished to nothing, even on cat5. The last straw was when I called tech support for directions for port forwarding for my DVR cameras.

  • Summary: I had a linksys wrtg10na few years. It failed this week. I purchased a Linksys N900. It has been nothing but trouble. 1) setup: Instead of a simple menu where I enter IP addrs and passwords, it bring up a user friendly GUI which did not work. I had to call customer support to navigate it.

  • Summary: I bought this wireless router to upgrade from my old $20 wireless router I’ve been using for the past 3 years. I thought I should upgrade since I’ve been having some issues streaming movies to my TV with the old router and because I wanted to add network backup drive that was easy to set up.

Firmware issues. Stay away from this company smart wifi stuff.

  • Summary: The worst router ever. It wasted so much of my time with dropping connections and stupid smart wifi feature. I fed up with this, researched and downgraded firmware to use it reasonably. Then it got auto updated with forced update and went back to connectivity, video buffering etc. issues.

  • Summary: I bought a Linksys EA4500 and at the end of May 2012 and lasted 2 years. Since I upgraded the firmware for the Cisco Cloud Connect, the machine used to hang very often, it took me always 2 or 3 reboots to fix the problem.
  • Pros: When working good streaming capabilities
  • Cons: Rebooting the system was always painful, it did not reboot gracefully most of the time

Worthless

  • Summary: When we tried to hook up my new modem we kept getting an error message. After about a hour of trying ourselves we decided to call the manufacturers support line. After about 45 minutes on there the man told us that something inside of it was outdated so it would not work.
