Summary: I got this router from Best Buy when I decided to move my phone to Vonage. I have had nothing but trouble from day one. First, the phone service even sucked but some constant tweaking of the settings over a couple of weeks straightened that out. Now it works great, except for the wireless. The wireless connection sucks. It constantly drops out, resets the connections, and runs very slow.
Summary: I have used this unit for about a month with my (non-Vonage) VOIP service in Ireland. It is a combination of a cable/DSL wireless router with 3 ethernet ports and a VOIP (ATA) adapter for 2 independent phone lines. So it is very compact. You attach it to your internet cable/dsl modem, and plug upto 3 devices (PCs, printers, etc.) via ethernet cables, and upto 2 analog phones via phone cables (for VOIP phone service).
Summary: This devise is ok when use strictly as vonage adapter. However, if used as a router AND vonage adapter, the quality of the call goes all the way gradually down until the router gets frozen and loses connection. If you download large files and/or try to watch a movie and speak on the phone at the same time, this devise will drop connection and will need to be restarted. That's my experience anyway.
Summary: I've had the box for about a year. Over time it seems to drop calls. I plug my PS3 into it and it will drop off my game server consistently. I attached a DLINK and everything works fine. Software upgrades did not help. Vonage should look for a better system.
Summary: I bought this router to support my Vonage phone, like most people. The sound quality wasn't too bad and it was fairly stable. However, in the coming months, Vonage took over the router and automatically pushed updates to the router. The current version I have constantly restarts the router at random intervals. It's quite an inconvenience when I'm on the phone for work and am constantly disconnected.
Summary: I have gone through several wireless routers of various brands, and this one has hung in there the longest. It has performed flawlessly for several years now. It's easy and fast to set up. Took maybe 10 minutes. Range is good even in a big house. I use it for Vonage VOIP with no problems. And best of all, its reasonably priced.
Summary: I've been using one of these router for years in my home. We have several ethernet LAN computers connected along with several wireless laptops. Some times there is heavy and prolonged downloading so I set up QOS in the router and the vonage works great. On very rare occasions I have to reboot the router, usually due to voltage fluctations when we have thunder storms. Otherwise this router has been a real trooper.
Summary: We have 6 of these 2 failed within 15 days Linksys refused to offer support and tech support said they would call back but never do. This is after 8 calls to them. We will not buy any more of their products. Lousy product and No support after the sale.
