The Linksys WRT300N is a great device for the $. For Home or Small Biz !
21 April 2011
Summary: The Linksys WRT300N is a great device for the price for the home or small business end users. Boasting Wireless B/G/N Networks on the 2.4 GHZ, with 32MB of Memory and 4MB of Flash, 4X 10/100 Lan ports & 1X 10/100 WAN port.
Summary: While not a true wireless B/G/N router as I'd hoped to find, this router does have a number of redeeming features. Among these is the secured setup option where the wireless network is locked down at the push of a button while doing you initial setup.
Summary: Pros: Good coverage in and around the outside of our house, about 50+ ft. Helps us to get movies wireless to our laptop and project them on our TV. Strong signal. Cons: Twice it had to be reset. Lost the internet, but just unplugging and replugging, waiting 15 seconds and replugging cleared it up.
Summary: I have not noticed the range issues that others have mentioned - I own a computer business, therefore I get a dozen pc's a week in the shop and I have never had one not connect right up to the router. Xbox live has not had any issues either.
Pros: Easy Setup (if you know what you are doing) - plenty of setup options - Works with everything I've thrown at it
Cons: I have had to perform a soft reset about 1 time per month. Not a big deal - all the settings are saved.
Summary: I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling buying this product because of the different reviews. Here is what I encountered. Not much came in the box. Just some quick setup documentation. The wired side was easy, which was expected. I setup the router to work with my friend's cable modem.
