Stay away from this one

JMK, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this router over a year ago. Unfortunately, the wireless connection hardly works without manually intervening. Laptop cannot find the network most of the time and have to cycle the power on the router to get it to work.

Not ready for Prime Time

C. East, Amazon
19 January 2008
  • Summary: My very old Linksys WRT54G went belly-up after many years of service, so I picked this router up last week looking forward to the nice range/speed increase. Instead, I enjoyed several days of headaches and hours spent on the phone with tech support.

Save yourself from techy hell, don't buy it.

  • Summary: As I am writing this review, the router is disconnecting me randomly because it is that awful. This router is horrible. Don't buy it, that's the gist of it. You will want to put your head through a wall before you even reach tier 2 tech support.

Completely disappointed

Robert Cohen "Digital Nerd", Amazon
13 December 2007
  • Summary: I've been a long time Linksys user and so when it came time to purchase wireless, it was a natural choice. One thing I've come to love about Linksys was it's tech support and almost effortless setup. Well... surprise... things have changed a bit there.

Stick with your Wireless-G

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: My wireless G router died after 4 years of dutiful and satisfying service, so I replaced the router only (not my wireless cards), intending to upgrade the cards after recovering from the purchase price of the WRT300N. I am not at all happy with it's performance.

Buyer Beware

T. Weiss, Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: We purchased this in September, and by November it no longer worked. We tried unsuccessfully to contact customer service by phone and finally was able to reach tech support over the internet. Unfortunately, he was unable to make this work..

Not enough product development before release

Henry Hamilton, Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: This item, while producing much greater speed to other wireless N devices, required periodic power recycling (reboot) and finally stopped working altogether. Cisco systems released this technology too soon. I retrofitted my network with my old WRT54G (wireless G) and have never had a problem since.

Do NOT buy this router!

Wizard of Oz "Oz Survivor", Amazon

  • Summary: First of all, I am a dyed-in-the-wool techie. I design products like this in my job. I know what every single one of those "what the heck is that?" settings in router set up screens are.

  • Summary: had it up and running in under 10 minutes. even got the matching pci adapter. it ran beautifully. the desktop claimed it was working faster than a 10/100 ethernet jack. but then the router flaked out briefly a few hours after. i didnt make anything of the hiccup.

After Hours and Hours with Tech Support, it Still doesn't Work!

B. Hunt, Amazon
7 December 2006
  • Summary: I wish I had the same experience as the person that rated 5 stars; but quite the opposite for me. This is not my first wireless router. I have experience with an 802.11B router of which I never had any problems. I wanted to upgrade to the latest and greatest.
