Summary: I do this sort of stuff for a living, so I may take some of my knowledge for granted when setting this up -- but I thought this was FREAKIN EASY. I understand some people complain about the range of the product, but realistically, unless you have an enourmous house then you are going to be...
Summary: I bought this Wireless router after doing quite a bit of research and getting good reviews from co-workers (even network guys) on it. I have owned it for almost 2.5 years now. I will break this down step by step: Installation: Couldn't be easier.
Summary: I thought I'd be writing a comment with a different intent...howver after having installed Linksys wireless Router yesterday evening within 10 minutes! I thought this was worth mentioning here as well.
Summary: I've been using PCs since the mid 80's, but I'm not real technical. After the new router and the wireless card came I was really apprehensive about installing it, so I let it sit for a week until I felt brave enough to tackle it. In less than a half hour we are up and running.
Summary: I purchased this router for my new office in June. It seemed like the perfect solution for my small business. Worked beautifully for 3 months and one day (for no apparent reason), the router functionality stopped working every 5-15 minutes.
Summary: I too previously owned the Linksys BEFSR41 4 port router. It was the best router. easy to setup and I especially liked the speed sharing of my Comcast cable modem and the built in firewall protection that linksys provides.

Summary: Like a lot of people I have a desktop PC at home for the family and laptop for work. I had an existing AT&T/Comcast cable modem setup with my family PC at home but was not able to utilize it for my work laptop.
Summary: As I began to write this, it had been almost six hours of attempts to set up our wireless network with no luck. The wired portion of the router did work out of the box: no problem whatsoever. It was the wireless part that was a pain to deal with.
Summary: I am a cable modem user in a four bedroom house. The wired/wireless functions have been working fine except for the following items: Client/server multiplayer gaming does not function. Games life Half-life, Counterstrike, etc that use UDP packets will freeze the device requiring a poweroff or reset.

Summary: beware that not all 5-star reviews are factual. the version 4 of this product has major bugs. I've purchased this router august 28, 2003 in lieu of a big linksys sale. Along with the usb wirelles adaptor. the router will drop my connections every 10min.
