Router FAILS!

Jack, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: Don't buy it. Once or twice a week, it locks up and can only be restored to operation by removing power and re-booting. The problem is inherent, has existed for a long time, and will never be fixed by Cisco. You can prove this to yourself by a simple web search on "WRP400" - several forum discussions of the problem will appear on the first search page, going back several years. Don't buy it.

Robust operation, challenging setup

BrianD, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: I'm not an IT person so setup left me sweating a bit. I followed the instructions from the VOIP service provider which left most parameters as default anyway, rebooted the box and it worked. I now have an all in one communication device, phone, WIFI, and 4 ethernet ports for computer, printers, etc. Probably the best small office device, period.. Its operation has been robust also, no reboots necessary to date.

Guess I should've read the reviews first

WD, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for my Linksys RTP300 (Vonage supplied) router when it stopped working after a power outage. Once the new router arrived in the mail, setup was easy, but then I found out the phone ports weren't working. I realized I'd have to transfer my WAN MAC address to my Vonage account first but was getting an error message when trying to transfer it online. I called Vonage tech support who got the same error message.

Terrible.

Bob, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: Terrible, it died in just 6 months as compared to a D-Link Wireless router I bought close to 6 years ago and still works. I will never buy Linksys again.

Doesn't work with Vonage system.

richmond, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: This is a good wireless router with 2 phone ports, but unfortunately it is not compatible with the Vonage telephone system so I had to return it and get the D-Link VWR that is made specifically for Vonage. I don't think it is as good a product as the Linksys, but the phone ports wouldn't work. The ethernet and wireless worked flawlessly for the few days that I was trying to figure out some way to make it work with Vonage.

Tons of features!

The customer is right!, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: This is a kickin' little piece of hardware. I picked this up to switch my business line over to VoIP to add features and subtract phone bill. Sadly the services I tried couldn't live up to expectations. I loved the advanced features on this router though and kept it for that reason alone. Hopefully somebody will offer a VoIP service that can keep up with this thing!

Perfect All-In-One Device

Karl G. Fife, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: What I appreciate most is the simplicity that this device creates! It literally turns the 'rats nest' of devices (Ethernet switch, router, Wi-Fi access-point, and VoIP ATA) into one thing needing only ONE electrical outlet! How great is that! It has been a perfect choice and a rock-solid performer! To the reviewers who blame this device for not being compatible with Vonage, that's incorrect.

Internet router

Sam, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: Had this for a month now and it's working great! The only thing that it doesn't do is connect with Vonage service (I wanted to replace my 2 units and combine into 1 since they both died around the same time; a power spike may have done them in). Setup was incredibly easy since I learned how to use the software interface in the previous linksys router. I hope this one lasts a long time.

The WRP 400 is a slice of heaven in router form.

Obes, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: I read the previous review. I'm the second. I've owned many Linksys routers and wireless access points, as well as hubs. This is my favorite so far. It doesn't get released in stores until late summer/early fall 2009. The gentlemen before me wrote about how it's not compatible with Vonage. That's true. BECAUSE it's a VOIP router in itself. I know that it's used by a company called Elevate Comm that launches in April (a month from now). That's how I got it.
