the software is prettier, but not as user friendly.
1 April 2015
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.
Summary: Firmware vauge and buggy. No open source available, so you're stuck with this crud. I've setup many boxes in the past and this is the first time I had to use the CD. It would start to run and then freeze and the only way to restart required a hard reset,over and over and over.
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.
Summary: I have been using this for over a month now and have had a few problems, possible due to the user but I doubt it. The wifi seems to lag at times when it shouldn't. It is not my internet as the Ethernet connections work fine. The 2 different networks are cool but the 2.4ghz works poorly.
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.
