Summary: This is my second one, bought it because I thought I bricked the other one loading firmware into the router but got the other one working and now I have two working routers. It has been my experience not to use Linksys firmware, I have had a lot of problems in the past with their firmware. It's possible they have improved but I usually don't take the chance. I use DD-WRT firmware in all my Linksys routers, the routers have zero issues and are very stable.
Summary: Great router! Can EASILY be flashed to DD-WRT.. Just do a little 'Googling'. Only thing to remember, make sure you have the right file to flash initially! (You'll change it to a newer one after). Do your research.. There are PLENTY of resources out there!
Excerpt: This is a great router if you can get it at a discount! Just make sure you get Version 2! Version 2 WRT610n has the same exact specs as the more expensive e3000!! The only difference is the software used. The e3000 has what's called virtual memory add-on which 99% of internet users wouldn't even know how to utilitize. Besides that, the WRT610n is one of the fastest available on the market as of March 2011.
Summary: My Belkin router died and wasn't that old. I decided to buy this one because I had read some great reviews on its reliability. The router was easy to set up in just a few minutes. I will definitely buy another one of this same brand when this one goes!
"Been very pleased with the performance and durability."

Summary: Value: Reliable, stable, fast 216 Mb/s, sometimes jumping up to 300 MB/s (5GHz 40MHz channel width) between your computer (via WIFI adapter linksys AE1000) and the Linksys WRT610N). Two concurrent range. Good design. Limitation: Not thought out ventilation. On the chip, which heats up the most attached to a small radiator that is not working properly.
Summary: I bought this product because I was replacing an old router I had handed down to me. It wasn't the best but it did its job at the time. What I love about this product is that its easy to install and configure, I love the program for the PC because it shows how many connects are using the router and I can monitor it. Compared to the router I had it, its in a different league. This product is what I've been looking for all this time.
