Just not reliable.

S. Hokanson, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: I hate to do this, as I've loved Linksys products for years and years, but the 320n router is just not reliable. I've been running it for 8 months and am tired of messing with it. The biggest frustration is that it needs to be reset every day. Otherwise, speeds bog down until they grind to a halt. I've flashed the router with the latest Linksys firmware, and have also run the third party DD-WRT firmware on it. The speed degradation happens with both firmware brands.

Unreliable

Caarhus, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this product for the average internet router, no extreme usage or anything, but to be connected. At first, the product practically worked straight out of the box. It only took me about 5 minutes to get the whole thing up and running, but after a few hours it crashed. It lost all connections to everything so I rebooted it. After doing so, it worked for the rest of the day. Seems like a great router right...wrong.

Wired router = great. Wireless = unstable

K. Sauer, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: So I am now on my second WRT-320n. Amazon is great with quick replacements. First off as a wired router, this works well. I am able to achieve my full 50/10 mbps internet connection with this. The issues occur if you try to do any heavy lifting using wireless. I have 2 laptops and an IPhone on 802.11g. I have one desktop computer hardwired with Gigabit Ethernet. I have an XBOX 360 hardwired with 100mbps Ethernet.

easy to setup but erratic performance

  • Summary: pluses: -easy enough to set up -linksys' support was actually pretty easy to reach and responsive--had someone online to chat at all times and followed up with phone calls and emails to see if the problem was resolved. minuses: -linksys easylink advisor program was incredibly slow to connect and a hassle -couldn't connect on the 5ghz channel w/ my card -connection kept dropping or slowing to a crawl after a week or two.

A- product, F support. I'd try someone different.

Fourmaples, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm your average end user. Not a geek, not a technophobe. I bought this when changing ISP's where the new modem didn't have a wireless router. I have a laptop/docking station, 2 pc's, 1 ethernet 3/1 network printer, and wireless samsung blu ray for streaming pandora and netflix (an excellent device, by the way). I thought the second channel would be good for the streaming media. I had significant trouble getting the linksys router set up.

Serious Quality Issues For Cisco To Resolve

Black Prince "micron7800", Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I have used Linksys routers both wired and wireless with satisfaction until I upgraded to the WRT320N and invested in two for different locations. They are very buggy. Not only is Cisco determined to make their routers a headache to set up with poor documentation, but when they are up and running - I used 2.4 GHz since I did not have enough gear with 5 GHz sadly. Anyway it is not unusual to have the SSID vanish and be told "not found".

Needs to be restarted often

Mr. Shayne D. Van Asperen, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: I find that I need to restart the router at least once a day because it tends to get jammed-up or stuck somehow on O2 broadband. My computer shows that I have a connection to the internet but web pages don't load until I restart the router. Lame.
