Summary: I LOVE IT. I HAVE NOT HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT AT ALL. HAVE 2-3 PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET AT THE SAME TIME AND IT WORKS GREAT. IT IS FAST, EASY TO HOOK UP AND WORKS GREAT. I WOULD TELL OTHERS ABOUT IT.
Capable Cisco/Linksys product aimed at Small Business
9 July 2012
Summary: We have installed two(2) of these devices and had great success both times. The installation is automatic with a typical home/small business DSL or cable connection. And the instructions to access it via a connected PC and browser are straight-forward, and allowed us to implement additional settings (e.g. particularly security). As we write this review this unit is being sold on eBay for around $125 just below our cost via normal channels of distribution.
Summary: I have had other products that did not work out of the box, but the company's tech support staff always fixed the problem for me. Linksys is another animal. Its tech support staff have no clue about fixing problems with a wireless access point. Linksys needs to revamp its customer support team; maybe, it should move its customer service from offshore to the USA. I am going to get my money back from the store I purchased this WAP from.
Summary: I recently purchased this Cisco WRV210 Wireless Router and IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. WHEN I TRIED TO RETURN IT I WAS IGNORED SO I ENDED UP HAVING TO KEEP A NON-WORKING ROUTER. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE SERVICE!
Pros: Default setup easy, but then needs to be made more secure. Offers AES algorithm and WPA2 system.
Cons: Default settings well known, personalised settings easily lost. Default IP address of 192.168.1.245 may go AWOL with Netgear routers with default gateway of 192.168.0.1. Can be temperamental - overheating? Range OK, as is general performance.
Summary: I am a novice in setting up such devices, but I called Linksys and was helped along step by step in setting up. It took about 90 minutes, but it was worth it. Now I am able to go wireless in a secure network!
