Summary: I put a bit of electrical tape over the light on the left side of the router. It glows unusually bright compared to the other lights, and I keep it in my bedroom, so I didn't like the extra illumination at night.
Pros: It's strange, but I feel like the best thing you can say about a router is that you've forgotten it's there. This one's run pretty flawlessly for over a year. I primarily use wired connections with it, but I've never had trouble connecting to the wireless.
Cons: I'd love for a router to make the process of Port Fowarding a little more intuitive. For some reason I always have trouble getting that sorted out. But, once I do, it works quite well.
I would first like to thank who ever it was that sent me ...

Summary: I would first like to thank who ever it was that sent me the email asking me if I was satisfied with the device/product! I rated it with 5 stars & I would of given it 10 stars if I had that option!!!
Summary: This router served me very well for a year. It did everything I wanted it to, and provided decent connectivity, even over a good portion of my yard. After 10 months, It started dropping connections randomly.
Pros: Very cheep price, and decently reliable for quite a while.
Cons: Only lasts for about a year before giving out.
Summary: - OpenWRT firmware v8.09.2 with 'Luci' GUI highly recommended - using it as a Wireless Access Point only now (turn off DHCP, don't use WAN port) - use with a Gigabit ethernet switch for your LAN to LAN connections - firewall functions replaced by much higher performance Ubiquity Edgerouter X
Pros: - older hardware seems very well built, mine is still working after EIGHT years - more flexible due to DD-WRT and OpenWRT options - adequate performance for DSL and low end cable internet service
Cons: - only 802.11 B/G wireless - only 10/100Mb Ethernet - Linksys brand now owned by Belkin, a consumer electronics company which is not well regarded
