Not for Xfinity customers.

Blake829, CNET
7 December 2013
  • Summary: If your ISP is Comcast/Xfinity, then DO NOT BUY the Linksys WRT160N.
  • Pros: Signal is strong throughout our three story house. UI is good.
  • Cons: If you have Comcast/Xfinity internet and don't disable WMM, this device is utterly useless for creating a wireless network. If you DO disable WMM, you automatically revert to an outdated, inferior standard of technology (Wireless-G/IPv4).

Looks Brand New Works Great after DD-WRT Flash

h.h.c., Amazon
3 July 2012
  • Summary: The unit arrive today in a Cisco Certified Refurbished box, cosmetically it looks brand new. My unit happened to be a v3. Be sure to follow the instructions on the DD-WRT site when flashing the ROM ([...]) -- I tried the upgrade firmware path from the Linksys menu and that didn't work for me, but the DD-WRT firmware flashed successfully after the 30/30/30 reset from the Linksys Management Mode screen.

Tomato Essentials!!!

Critical Shopper, Amazon
15 June 2012
  • Summary: This is a great cheap router! Highly recommended if you don't need more than the spec! Pros: - fast, good radio (but not the fastest, read below) - loads Tomato firmware - big bang for the buck - double channel width(40MHz) Cons: - single band, not dual band (but that's all I need) - only 4MB flash, can't load bigger firmware (I don't really need that) - only 32KB NVRAM, half of more $ cousins (seems to be enough for general use) - This router transfers slightly slower...

Best router for the buck

eljeanxp, Ebay
26 April 2012
  • Summary: This Router is just absolutely amazing and fast. Yes it may not have a Gigaport for ethernet connections, but seriously who has 1Gb/s internet speed? And yes it is only 100Mb/s wireless speed but who has more than that? I would really like to know. It is perfect, fast, reliable, and i only got it for $10 on ebay ;].

Fantastic router over the years

wadeos, CNET
15 February 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item 3.5 years ago (October, 2008) and have had it setup in my home since this time. This router has served me well, as I can not think of a time of when I had to reset it. I use this router to send a wireless signal across one very large room, through a hall, then across another room to a wireless Roku media player for streaming Netflix. I have had surprisingly good success with this, running this router nonstop over the past 3.5 years.
  • Pros: Inexpensive (today), stable (never have needed to reset router), faster transceiving than my cable broadband, good signal distance
  • Cons: Setup software not the most user-friendly. Setting up the software and the router's security may be confusing for some.

Perfect for Wireless Bridge AND Repeater

Samuel Anuoluwapo Aina "SammyDplus", Amazon
25 July 2011
  • Summary: This is my second WRT160N Router; the first one is the primary (connecting directly into a modem), and i use this second unit as a wireless bridge and repeater. Don't be fooled by the low price tag on this device.. and please don't bother calling the Idiots that call themselves "technical support" at Linksys; they don't have a clue how to set this (wireless bridge) up the proper way.

AMAZING!!!

njbartels, Ebay
17 July 2011
  • Summary: This is one of the best routers I have ever used... the set up was simple as 1,2,3... and I bought it brand new for a fraction of the cost I would in a store... bottom line is, if you want a damn good router, that will boost your home network in a second, buy this router.
