GREAT CONTROL PANEL - but many of them do not last for long :(

spoxi, Ebay
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 ...

Old and obsolete.

  • 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.

Lynksys routers can be a pain but work

skotsales, Ebay
7 February 2011
  • 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.

Difficult Installation

Overstock
9 January 2009
  • 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.

Better options out there

Nathan S., Newegg
11 December 2008
  • Summary: I live in a fraternity. Old building with thick walls. The signal reaches the whole house which is a definite plus. However, I think our issues stem from the number of simultaneous users. During the day (ie peak usage) it needs resetting at least once an hour
  • Pros: When working the router has a good range and great speed.
  • Cons: The router consistently needs to be reset because it loses connection to our cable modem.

A Bad Choice

George Y., Newegg
9 October 2008
  • Pros: Good when it works. Nice configuration features.
  • Cons: Unlike other routers I've had, this one's very finicky about the type of adapter you use. Alternately connects then drops out. Very Poor penetration through walls. Worked horribly with a Belkin adapter even though signal strength indicated was high. I was tempted to buy a linksys adapter but I th...

Drops connection constantly

Brian C., Newegg
18 May 2008
  • Summary: Stay far, far away. This thing has a ton of bad reviews for a reason; last time I drive to a local place and just buy a router without doing my research first.
  • Pros: Seemed to work fine until it didn't!
  • Cons: This router worked fine for the better part of a year, but recently it's been randomly dropping the internet connection. P2P while I sleep is impossible, constantly cuts out during online games. It's unbearable. It's the wired connection cutting out, too; most of the complaints I see here involve...

Blows

Adam S., Newegg
17 April 2008
  • Summary: To be fair, we have a 100Mbps connection to internet. These routers are not designed to handle that. However, they should SAY how much bandwidth it can handle. Most home users would not have a problem right now, but as ultra fast internet goes more mainstream...
  • Pros: OK for home user
  • Cons: Constantly needs to be restarted due to chipset overheating on fast internet connection

Don't Buy IT!

Anonymous, Newegg
7 April 2008
  • Summary: If you want to purchase this wireless router, you are taking a big risk. I do know of one person that has had good luck with it, but I have had none, and it will be hitting the bottom of my Greendisk recycling box soon. There are better choices out there if you have to have Wireless N.
  • Pros: The middle antenna makes a nice pancake flipper.
  • Cons: Continually drops signal regardless of firmware upgrades, configurations changes, channel changes or anything I have researched to provide a fix. A very poor product from Linksys that is well known for issues.
