It's ok

Silkfur, Staples
17 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this because my previous router which was the Linksys wrt54gs after 8 years was having a hard time staying connected and the strength was not very good. Since I also use it for streaming Netflix I decided to upgrade and wanted to purchase a Linksys because the set up on my previous one was so simple and fast. The set up for this one was not as easy. I was setting it up with my laptop and it would not go past 25% set up.

Linksys Router

Good1234, Staples
28 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Was very easy to install, set up and connect to the wireless in my house. However not sure 100% this is the best product. I have only owned it about 3 weeks and it does seem to drop the wireless signal in our house periodically and I have to run a fix scan on the internet to get it reconnected each time. But it could also be other issues as well not sure yet still have to investigate and no it's not distance my house is 2100 sq ft.

Easy setup but problems with WPA2

Ron, Staples

  • Excerpt: I initially set router up WPA/WPA2 but my new Samsung DVD player would not stay connected while streaming music or video so I had to change it to WEP. No more problems after that.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fast Connection Speed
  • Cons: Unreliable connection

  • Excerpt: As it turned out we were going to receive a modem/router combination that we didn't know when we purchased the router. We tried to return and couldn't.

Constantly reboots

  • Excerpt: Initially this router was great. Now it constantly reboots itself. It has the latest firmware update which has not resolved the issue. When connected range and speed are great. Please fix!

Range disappoints - Smart features good

A reviewer from Austin, TX, Linksys
29 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I replaced a low end Linksys E1200 wireless N in an effort to achieve the longer range that others here said they got. I have not experienced ANY increase in range and in fact had to buy a range extender to boost the signal. Per the signal strength indicator on my devices the signal strength is the same for the E1200 and the EA4500 at a modest distance. The good news is that the features of a "smart wi-fi" are really handy.

Doesn't work like they said it would

A reviewer from Chicago, IL, Linksys
12 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Great for a standard router. Works very well with all wired/wireless devices. The biggest problem is the utility software that controls the router. It does not work, nor can they fix it. If they do get it going, it will fail when you turn off the computer and restart.

Meh

Oskar,, TigerDirect.com
22 November 2013
  • Summary: My 5 year old Linksys router gave up the ghost, so I bought this one, thinking top of line, top of range, right? WRONG! My old one had more range. I now have continual issues with my peripherals not getting a signal. Should have done more research, I guess. Can't recommend it.
