GREAT CONTROL PANEL - but many of them do not last for long :(
10 April 2012
Summary: Ok ... I really LOVE a control panel of Linksys routers and over last 12 years I was using only them for my home/hosting/port forwarding small network needs. Unfortunately over those years I discovered these modems have tendency to freez up and stop working ... You might leave them alone for a couple of days and try to turn on again finding are back in order but later they go down and it is impossible to wake them up ...
Summary: At its moment of shine it may have been a good choice, but as time passes more products are made. This specific model came with a lot of problems, and so you can read all of this in almost any other review made by people around the web. It occasionally stops broadcasting, and the security system is just really messed up. Sometimes it provides security, sometimes it does not.
Summary: It, like other Lynksys products can be a pain. I had to call India to get the correct ISP number to run it on AT&T DSL. Then it had a habit of connecting at 54 mbs. You to reconnect it to the computer to get 135 mbs, however, it never went to 150 mbs. It works though...so that's a plus.
Summary: Installation for this product was a true pain. The Installation CD that comes with this kept getting stuck as it wanted a "Password". I did some internet searches and found what the default password should have been but it still wouldn't take it. I performed all of the reset steps and it didn't work. I found online installation information on how to complete installation directly from the internet rather than using the set up CD.
