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. When I say it has problems, I mean my computer still says the router is broadcasting a signal, but there is no Internet behind it, therefore I cannot do anything on the Internet.
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
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.
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. I've since found several more current routers in the same general price range; I'm not sure how I missed them before I bought this one. In any event, it mostly works.
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.
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. Upgrading using the Linksys firmware upgrade utility went easily. There are reports that this latest firmware doesn't support typical "N" router speeds. "G" speeds at best.
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?
