Summary: I bought this to replace a similar Linksys wireless router but before replacing my existing one I tried an experiment and put the installation disc into my computer and reinstalled it which fixed the problem until we lost power for about three hours. When the power was restored the original router again stopped transmitting the wireless signal. Once again I put the installation disc into the computer and reinstalled it and it has been working ever since.
Summary: Have had router for a number of years and worked well. Support software was for Windows XP and Vista. Linksys wanted to charge me $30 for a phone call or live chat to set up the router to be supported by Windows 7. Thanks but no. Will never buy another Linksys product.
Summary: Works well with the DD-WRT firmware installed. I have used them with Broad Band Hamnet mesh node firmware also. In addition I have two with "Tomato" firmware in use as sub net routers off our LAN. Hard to beat for reliability and the price for an older G model WiFi device. There is lots of third party support for these routers. Just be sure to get the model that supports what firmware you are gong to load.
Summary: A classic router that has truly stood the test of time. If you plan on putting on your own firmware, do some homework and get the right version of the router that will have more memory on it, however this thing does support DD-wrt, and works great.
Excerpt: As broadband internet becomes more and more standard home wireless networks are becoming much more frequent as well. Arguably the component which is most important in ensuring a stable and fast wireless network is the router.
Excerpt: When I had my internet connection at home, I really had a problem how to share the connection with the other users in our home. As you can see, my wife also has a laptop and a niece of mine who lives with us in the house also has …
Summary: Have used one of these for 8-10 years and have never had an issue. This model is obsolete now but is still a reliable piece of network equipment. Purchased two of these model to use as a network bridging extender in a point to point application.
Summary: I have owned one for these routers for over 7 years now, and I bought a second one for a wireless networking project as it was much easier and cheaper than any other alternative. Thanks for offering a great product at a low price!
