It's okay

Shawn M., Newegg
22 July 2014
  • Summary: Basically it's great if you want to run wires and convenient for connecting phones wirelessly. I wouldn't use wireless for gaming, netflix, etc... on other devices that need better speeds.
  • Pros: Hasn't broken in 5ish+ years, signal is consistent, fast wired connection.
  • Cons: SLOW on devices connected wirelessly My internet is 25mbs and I get less than half that on all b/g/n connections, quite a bit overpriced for what you get

  • Summary: This router works most of the time. It seems to work for a few weeks with absolutely no problems, then it will have a few problems a day for a few days then go back to having no problems for a few weeks.

Short range

Scott H., Newegg

  • Pros: Works well on close range and is fairly easy to set-up
  • Cons: Doe not work well in a 3 story home. I am running wireless N in the basement and have the router in a bedroom on the top floor. The signal strength is 2 bars and should be stronger.

Meh

Eric M., Newegg
10 April 2011
  • Summary: After a little less than a year it stopped assigning IP addresses automatically, so I would have to reset it constantly. I updated the firmware and that helped a little, then I just went into the settings and manually assigned IP addresses to specific MAC addresses.
  • Pros: Looks nice When it works it works well easy set up
  • Cons: see other thoughts

Easy Setup

Benjamin A., Newegg
31 March 2011
  • Summary: Comes with a nice network application (basic). If you want more you have to purchase. I think this is extortion. A message just popped up the other day asking me to install on other PC connecting to the network. This is a pain.
  • Pros: Easy setup. Pop the cd in and follow the screen instructions.
  • Cons: Wired connection is fine. Wireless connection a diff story,.... it appears that the dhcp only gives out ip address for a limited time ~1 day. There does not appear to be a setting for longer periods. Someone like my wife who is not tech savy -- does not appreciate this at all.

It works, mostly, so that's good.

Weldon Berger, Amazon
5 February 2011
  • Summary: It's pretty hard to break an ethernet port but that's what I did on my laptop so I had to get a wireless router in a hurry. I thought this one was a good deal, I've had positive experiences with Linksys modems/routers in the past and I'm generally comfortable with refurbished items so I bought it.

So Not So

David F., Newegg
28 October 2010
  • Summary: The router is more annoying than it is useful. Try something else, you will be disappointed here.
  • Pros: Stylish, GUI is decent.
  • Cons: After awhile you pretty much have to reboot the device daily. Drops connections like plates. I use a Canon MP560 wireless printer and you have to reboot the router every time you want to use the printer so that it will reconnect.

Amazingly... So far.. So good

John B., Newegg
12 July 2010
  • Summary: The prior owner of my WRT120N reported NOTHING but trouble with this router. I reset the device to factory defaults/original firmware Version 1.0.01 using the reset button. I had no problem downloading the bin file for the newest firmware from October of last year... 2009. Firmware Version 1.0.04.
  • Pros: CHEAP. After reading numerous scathing reviews, the original owner actually GAVE this device to me. Firmware upgrade a snap. Setting up WEP security through the Linksys utility was easy.
  • Cons: The router does run hot to the touch. I have the router raised up a bit as the extra height is provided by four added rubber feet so that more air can pass easily underneath the unit for ventilation. Perhaps heat is the cause of all the earlier negative reviews?
