Nice Linksys WRT610N router

  • Excerpt: We bought this router because we thought is would be the best and the quickest wifi router available at that time. We own it almost one year now. We are using it for two computers and one printer. Setting up the wireless network wasn't difficult and it was an easy start. But sometimes we have issues with a very slow network and we just cannot figure it out what the reason is for the fact that our network is so slow.

Nice with third party firmware

  • Excerpt: This is a solid router with very good hardware feature but it is been holding back by the factory firmware. I tried just using the Linksys Firmware, and it was barely passable. It does work ok for normal routing and needs occasional reset over the weeks.However, after I downloaded the DD-WRT open-source firmware and flashed it from the web admin page of the router, it really flies. There is a huge difference. A almost quite night and day difference!

  • Excerpt: I've been using this router for two and a half years now and it has run like a dream for most of that time. This router has tons of nice features that make it worth its while: 1) USB connection for sharing networked hard drives (I think it even supports FTP but I didn't try) 2) Gigabit Ethernet switch 3) Now has DD-WRT support 4) 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n support. It also supports simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11n which is nice to have.

Nice Router For The Home Etc...

  • Summary: I bought this router as a refurbished Linksys product here on E-Bay and it was a very good deal. I had read reviews of the WRT610N that were both favorable and unfavorable so I thought with a price this good I would give it a try in my home network setup. My router is mounted under the staircase to my basement using the very handy built in wall mounting slots and a couple of wood screws. One of the negatives I had read about was hot running.

Linksys WRT610N

  • Summary: The Pros: The connectivity is reliable. The signal strength is good (on the 2.4 Ghz band, but not on the 5Ghz band). The web interface is easy to use. I hooked up an external hard drive to the USB port and turned on the media server. That worked nice. I like the Wireless N capability although I am only getting 144 Mbs speeds. Its very sleek looking. I like that it has wired Gigabit performance. The Cons: The 5Ghz band put out a very weak signal.

Excellent Router for the Advance User

  • Summary: This router is great for gaming and setting up multiple wireless devices, but it is a bit over priced for the basic network user. I upgraded my network from a Linksys WRT150N router, thinking that this would be a major improvement. I was wrong. The WRT610N router did give me a stronger signal strengths, but unless you have an wireless N adapter on every device you are connecting to your network; you will not be able to fully utilize the dual frequency technology.
