Great product, great price; however, the easy set up CD did not work!
31 October 2013
Summary: I have been using a linksys router for years now and a family member was in need of one so I recommended this one. Everything works great, I received my item when promised and overall am very pleased. If I may say one thing that was a problem and that is the easy set up disc that came with the router did not work, but fortunately for me my nephew is a computer geek and was able to set everything up without the use of the CD so in the end it all worked out, however if I...
Summary: This product is terrible. It has this security protection called TrendMicro that blocks each and every site that I attempt to visit. Called linksys to try and disable this feature but unfortunately this product is discontinued do therefore you would need to pay for tech support. I removed this router and in the process of buying another one. I would not even think twice about buying this item ever again. THE WORST ROUTER IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!
Summary: I bought this product as a buyer beware that it might not work. Well it did not work. It was a chance I took. I wanted to see if I could repair it. Thats why it's so important to be up front and describe the product to the slightest detail. I had only myself to blame on this rare occasion.
Summary: This was certainly worth it with a fair discount price. I set things up and it runs pretty well. There is extra software utilities that should help pin things down and make sure the connected nodes are authorized and something isn't transfering too much. I didn't use that software much though. There was a little trouble with network failures, and I'm not certain whether this caused the problems or my DSL router.
Summary: Great product. Easy setup. Fast. Not complicated at all. If you buy a used one, ask seller for login data. If you don't live in the same state, they should provide it for you. Bought mine from reldon42, and he was a pleasure to deal with. Once set to factory resets, it was easy to set up my network.
Summary: very stable with lastest 1,07 sept 2012 firmware almost no lost connections only maybe once every week or so the wireless has many features but does only does 108mbs worth every pennie for 8 bucks
Summary: The router drops wifi at least once a day. Your computer can still see the router but is not able to connect. Reseting the router is the only fix. Wired connections are unaffected but so what, I wanted a wireless router. Doing a Google search shows many, many people complain about the same problem. Cisco even mentions the issue without giving a definitive solution. Cisco hints "your computer software software may not be compatible".
