Good workhorse if you replace the firmware

Anonymous, Newegg
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Overall, I am pleased with the reliability and effectiveness of this router after replacing the firmware and adding a gigabit switch. I should be able to get a few more years of use out of it.
  • Pros: This has been my router for five years now, and I have no plans to replace it. This router can be made very reliable if you replace the firmware with TomatoUSB or DDWRT. You really cant do without this. Don't use the linksys firmware. I never have to reset the router and it maintains optimum spee...
  • Cons: If you use the linksys firmware, expect a nightmare router that needs to be reset daily, especially after a few years of use. You can thankfully eliminate this issue by replacing your firmware with TomatoUSB or DDWRT.

Reliable for Quite a While!

Joe C., Newegg
18 September 2012
  • Summary: Now, I know that things tend to wear out after a while, but I can't recall a piece of hardware I've ever owned which, one day after four years of constant use, just randomly decides to stop working properly, but doesn't appear to be doing so.
  • Pros: - Reliable. - Easy to customize. - Works with a number of different bands. - Firmware updates are a snap!
  • Cons: - Not enough Port Forwarding slots for hardcore gamers. - Takes a while to find the internet connection after the modem resets. (This can be circumvented by manually releasing/renewing your connection, however. - Becomes randomly unreliable after four years of use.

  • 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,...

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.

Good solid router

Ryan H., Newegg
13 February 2012
  • Summary: Maybe I just got lucky and had a good one that didn't drop my signal.
  • Pros: I've had this router for about 4 years, reliable, solid connection, good speeds, perfect for everyday home use.
  • Cons: The WiFi sync button is kind of a pain if you need to use it (especially if router is upstairs).
