Summary: I bought this to upgrade my router to N. I reviewed many of them at the time and this one came in at the proper price and had the features I was looking for. I used this router for about 2 years. It had frequent reboots and overheating.
Summary: I would really would have liked to have given this unit more stars but I ended up having to send it back. I did get a version 3 which is great if you are wanting to install dd-wrt on it but if you do install dd-wrt on it, you are not able to use it as a repeater!
Summary: I have owned the v2 of this router for a year and a half. It still works, but recently the wireless N part of it stopped working. All my devices have dropped connection speeds down to 54mbits/sec. If I set the wireless mode to N only. Nothing works.
Pros: Easy setup. Good range. Fast. While it worked it didn't need reboots or anything.
Summary: For the price, you're well served with a flash to DD-WRT firmware. Well worth it in that regard. If you're planning on sticking with the stock firmware, I'd look elsewhere.
Pros: The hardware is solid, though it tends to run pretty warm. I built a small wooden frame to get the thing up off of the shelve and give it some breathing room. You could use whatever you wanted, but I'd advise it.
Cons: The firmware is absolutely atrocious. I had countless occasions where the router would drop a signal on my laptop that was only 10-15 feet away from it in the same room. Finally, I upgraded to DD-WRT and I've been happy ever since. Totally easy process -- took me all of 15 minutes -- and has made...
Summary: Gets 3 eggs for the product with ddwrt. Without it I'd give it a -5 eggs.
Pros: Once you get DDWRT on this thing it runs like a champ. Haven't had one issue on it the past few days since I installed it.
Cons: Without DDWRT beware. This thing is a piece. Had constant dropped connections. Even had it reset itself to factory defaults when it shut down on me. Install CD was a total FAIL. Don't even bother with it. Range is a little weak has a hard time getting 40% signal with 1 wall and about 35 feet.
Summary: The first one I bought was a complete wreck. After I completed the installation process, it didn't work. I contacted someone from Linksys Support who just had me update the firmware, which appeared to have fixed the issue.
Summary: ***WARNING*** There is a problem with this specific product redirecting users from Facebook to Myspace. It may be an attempt to steal user's information, or it could be a non-threatening "bug" with the system's software. You can search "WRT160N Facebook Myspace" for more information on this issue.
Summary: After finding a new wifi deivce for a while, I decided to buy this refurbished one. Cause it's cheap. I would say this is a good one after installing the ddwrt frimwire. To install ddwrt is not different.
