kjoston_18, Ebay
9 August 2010
  • Summary: be very careful and cautious of these ebay sellers stating that for these wireless routers you only need to plug and play these dual 5.0/2.4ghz wirless routers. Because thats not the case!!! Some of these con kids or old men scams don't tell the full story! When you upgrade these antennas with the appropriated u.fl connectors that don't require soldering and minor-mini welding; these ebay sellers forget to mention or hide that these antenna fixture only applies to the...

Very disappointing...

sduel, Amazon
26 July 2010
  • Summary: I've always had Linksys networking equipment and never had any complaints. However, this router has been a major disappointing. I've been running it for 7 months now and besides the looks there's not much positive I can say. I'm not a network engineer but as a software developer I know enough to get by. Here is my experience: 1. 5mhz Range (N-only) at 20 ft away I get about 2 bars. So unless you plan on sitting next to the beauty, it's useless. 2.

Linksys Swingsys

vrbrunzr, Ebay
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Stay away from this unit. Indeed it works in dual band (2.4 & 5.0) however the range for the 5.0GHz is useless unless you are in same room as the router. With in 15 ft it will deliver 270+ MBPS. Anything beyond 15 ft and your connection speed plumets to less than what G standard delivers. The web interface is rather weak as well. There is no improvmemt to speak of over G seris routers from 4 years ago.

Disappointed

JJC, Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: I'm returning the WRT610N after having it for less than 24 hours. I couldn't get a consistent wired connection and no wireless connection at all. I'm fairly tech savvy and did all the troubleshooting I could. I ended up calling Cisco Linksys and they diagnosed the problem as having the incorrect power adapter for the router.

Linksys delivers defective product; refuses to honor refund request

ShirazSun "SS", Amazon
1 March 2010
  • Summary: My wife gave me a WRT610N router for Christmas 2009. Several days after installing it, I noticed that my internet speed was very slow. Ran a speed test; my 10 mbps cable connection was running about 500K through the router (wired connection). Eventually I learned that I could restore normal operation by going into the router setup and just re-saving the settings. But after doing so, speed would deteriorate over several days to 5% or so.

Don't be forced into software!!!!!

WL "WL", Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Well, I think this might of been a nice router. There are a few more features that I would of loved to had included, but it did have a nice range of features. Cons: I am not an IT Pro, but I am an advanced User. I set-up this router manually and everything worked great. They provided software with it called "Network Magic". This is where the problem lies, and linksys should be severely punished for allowing this software to be there.

Download speed degrades

W. NICHOLS, Amazon
8 December 2009
  • Summary: This router has been a big disappointment. Setup was easy quite easy with no problems encountered. Originally the download speeds were in the 20-24 Mbps range, which is great and what I pay for from Comcast. These speeds are over the wired LAN. Wireless speeds were a little slower as I would expect. The problem is that the download speed degrades over several hours, getting down to 3Mbps! This happens consistently.

Linksys customer for 8 years! Beware!!!!

Major_NumbNuts, Amazon
9 October 2009
  • Summary: I have owned Linksys for about, well since I first went wireless! 2001-02. This unitl is crazy JUNK! From first hook up to reinstall I had major issues, wouldn't find my servers, Very low wireless signal. My PS3 is 15 ft. away and the best it would do is 50% and my wifes laptop is 8 ft away and she could only get 70-75% @ 8 feet! CRAZY? Yeah, that is what I thought!
