Summary: This one is still in the box, it's a spare. I manage the WIFI for a 5 acre RV park with motel. I love these things. easy to program as a router or a repeater with the ddwrt download. Range doesn't seem to be as wide as a repeater, but I've had no trouble or complaints in the last 10 months. Three of them are up trees as repeaters. One covers the 12unit motel as a repeater. Receive a good signal even through the metal RVS. Can't go wrong.
Excerpt: I bought this item on sale, and couldn't be happier. My laptop recieves Wifi all throughout my house and at really high connection speeds. The only downside is that when my brother has his laptop on, it takes my laptop a few minutes to locate the internet (not too tech savvy on this topic). It probably has more to do with his laptop than the router however. It is also very easy to install, and someone with very little computer knowledge can set up their home network.
Excerpt: this router is great got tired of paying to much for internet from expensive internet service providers you can go to store buy one pay one price and don't have to mess with high bills each month it works just as good this router is great Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Linkys was the right choice for quality wireless signle.

Excerpt: I was living with my boyfriend, a pc user, and me a mac user. And we needed a wireless router to suit both our needs. We needed something with strong signal and able to work with both of our computers without me wanting to throw it against a wall. I probably wouldn't have bought it because it was a little on the pricy side but I had a $50 credit to Office Max so I bought the best I could afford. It turned out to be a good router and its still going after a year.
Excerpt: My boyfriend and I bought this wireless router when he purchased his new laptop. This was his first laptop and first time installing any sort of wireless router. It was very simple to set up and the process only took about 20 minutes or so. Since we have set it up, we have not had to even touch the thing. It's really slim and blends in with the rest of the devices on his desk. Sometimes I think he even forgets its there.
Excerpt: I purchased this router from Amazon.com on sale for $69.99 marked down from $149.99. Along with Prime I received it in 2 days. The set up was extremely easy, it took me approximately 15 minutes. This is a simultaneously dual band router which means it can transmit two signals at the same time while it is on-line ( N and G ). I decide on this router upgraded from a previous linksys WRT54G, which is a great router but I wanted more range.
Linksys has a fast wireless connection, but sometimes glitches.

Excerpt: With the Linksys wireless router I own, we have a few problems. We have worked it out with the customer service representatives, who told us that when using a 3rd party router along with a Linksys router you may have glitches. The glitch I often have is that when I'm working on my laptop my internet disconnects itself randomly. When I click "connect to wireless" and look for my wireless ID name, it doesn't show up as an option. I've had this problem often.
Excerpt: after going through 2 netgear routers, we were sick of it! initially they were easy to use, but they seemed to go out after 6months to a year. Their technical support was awful and they were not very compatible with our internet service provider. With that being said, we finally switched to Linksys. It was a good and smart move! No problems! No issues! No headaches! We haven't even had to call customer service because it hasn't been needed at all!
Excerpt: Let me start by saying that I am not a computer person - at all. When my husband brought this item home I didnt even know what wireless internet service met! When he explained to me that I could go online anywhere in our home - and that our kids could as well - I was skeptical. It also looked very complicated to install - my husband wouldnt admit it but he is not very tech savy either -- he is even less mechanical!
