Broadband Router

Thomas J. "PC man", Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: The WRT160NL router is not worth purchasing if one wishes to manage range for wireless. Basically only functions in a small sized room. Don't expect much more from this unit.

Good all around router

  • Summary: Held up well for over a year now with a ton of storage hanging off of it. I rarely have more than 4-5 computers connected at once, but it has no trouble with that.

truly disappointed

sharon pilch, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Purchased this awhile back. Stored it in my closet for future use. When I did open it to install the instructions were so poorly written and small enough for a insect to read, I hear they have magnified sight, but impossible for an adult.

NO improvement in Range, Spotty Signal w/DD-WRT

Greenchunks, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: I have been using a WRT54GL for 3 years running DD-WRT with absolutely no issues whatsoever. I was looking to upgrade my home netowrk to wireless N, and get a bit more range and speed, so I figured that this was a logical choice based on my good experience with the previous Linksys devices.

Works very well with OpenWRT 10.03.1

Tuukka Toivonen "tuukka", Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace an ancient WRT54GS whose radio finally failed, with the intention of putting OpenWRT on it. I was a bit worried since the OpenWRT wiki lists this router as a work in progress, but it turns out the recently released Backfire 10.03.1 works very well, and my router has been...

Drops connections. Can't handle too many devices

Srinivas Dangeti "dsreview", Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: Router worked ok for more than a year when there aren't many devices. When the device is fully populated, it can't handle it. Drops wireless connections, and even wired connection deteriorates. I expect these devices to work fine for definitely way more than a year.

Terrible customer service

Kelly, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I had been a fan of Linksys products for years, going way back to the first days of DSL, but no more. I bought this router and had pretty good luck with it (although it seemed slow) for a while. Then I started seeing huge performance problems.
