Summary: This Linksys is a 2008 model which we soon found out after purchasing this item we can not use it. We had to purchase another wireless router (which is a Netgear). Every time we had to call Linksys for help after losing connection they basically told us they could not help us because of how old it was. I will never again purchase anything other than Netgear.
Summary: Basically boils down to a bad DHCP server. Gives out the same IP to each new wireless device that connects, which confuses and crashes the router. If you reserve an IP, does not give out the reserved IP until you reboot like 100 times and bring up all the devices in just the right order. Sometimes lists the same connected device multiple times in the connected clients list... Most of the time, doesn't list any, even when they are connected.
Pros: Kinda, sort of works. Once it has been configured JUST RIGHT.
Cons: VERY finicky! Any kind of configuration change requires multiple reboots. Lacking any kind of firmware upgrades since 11/03/2009. I guess perfection achieved! (not even close).
Pros: Works great and I have a computer with a WiFi card, a laptop, and two smart phones connected to it. I have had Insight, Time Warner and Comcast and I only had trouble connecting to Comcast. I had to clone the MAC address from my computer to the router to get multiple Items on the router. Comcast only gives one IP address so you would have to rent there router. Cloning the MAC address gets around this by fooling the system into thinking the router is your computer. Thi...
Summary: I owned a WRT54G and upgraded to the WRT400N. Both routers have been good for me. I run 2 wired computers, my Directv box wired, my laptop wireless, my PS3 wireless, and my son's PSP wireless. I have no problems with the 400 and never had a problem with the 54 and I have connected the laptop and PS3 wireless at the same time and never had a problem. I would suggest you find a 54G or get the 400N over this router.
Pros: Cheap buy since this was a gift for my mother who only needed a router to hook up a laptop for basic purposes.
Cons: Unsable and will not connect more than one wireless device. I have tried to connect my mother's laptop and mine, as well as my father's new laptop along with my mother's laptop. One devices connects fine but once the second connects both are disconnected. The only way one of them will connect is if the other WIFI switch is turned off.
Summary: I bet it makes a good frisbee - I could probably fling it into the river from by back deck.
Pros: Ideally shaped to use as a door stop.
Cons: Total junk. I've been fighting with this router off and on for over a year and it has never worked properly. It will only allow one wireless device to connect to the internet at any given time; try to do more and the router will crash. To fix it you have to disable all but one wireless device and then power cycle the router. All the combined knowledge of two programmers and three tech support department have never managed to get this router working properly.
Summary: Don't even bother, if Linksys cannot figure out their own routers how should you be able too?
Pros: Sleek look and fast shipping
Cons: never worked. I tried to upgrade my routers with these and they never even connected to the internet. Everything else works, old routers, modem, etc. These routers were absolute garbage out of the shoot. I tried contacting with linksys and after being on the phone for an hour they told me they would call me back, which never happened. I will just eat this and go buy some other brand. This has been a nightmare.
