This router is no bueno, B&H Photo
29 June 2015
  • 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

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

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.

Demands that you use Chrome...

Jack, Staples
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Demands that you use Chrome as a browser, will not work with IE11! Very difficult to set up, and seems to crash every 24 hours. I've had to unplug it and restart it, every morning to gain internet access again. Port Forwarding seems to be flaky, works for a few hours, than stops.

3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: since ie 11 is out rhe smartlink won't work. And till yet there was no upgrade driver. The only support you can get is install another browser. For the rest the router works fine en very fast.

  • Summary: Not worth the money compared to other routers from linksys.
  • Pros: Dual Band, Slim, USB Storage.
  • Cons: "Smart" Wi-fi, Marvell chipset (No DD-WRT etc.), Slower than advertised speeds with Wi-Fi on either and both bands.

Can't configure using IE 10 or 11

SR, Staples
5 January 2014
  • Excerpt: To configure the settings you must use an internet application but Internet 10 or 11 is not supported. Fortunately you can use Chrome to configure. More disappointing is that the mfg says they will never support IE 10 or 11
  • Pros: Fast, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection, Secure Connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up
