Excerpt: This is the first time my family bought a router. This is hilarious, I really have no idea What a router is, What it looked like and what it was for, So when we were surfing the net i was hoping to see a very small chip that would …
Pros: User friendly for people that know basic networking.
Cons: I went to school...Bachelors in Comp Sci, A+, Net+, CCNA..not that you'll need that, but I can tell when something is broken. And I've gone through a linksys router every 2.5 years. They tell you they can't do anything after 2 years. Forget the extra year warranty, unless you buy a 5 year plan. I...
Summary: I have V1. I have had DD-WRT Micro running strong for a long time. On OEM firmware the router wouldn't allow traffic over certain ports even with DMZ or Port Forwarding enabled without DD-WRT. Also, you can run into an issue that requires a full reset where you will have to do a 30-30-30 reset.
Pros: Lasts long
Cons: Only getting roughly 1/3 of actual bandwidth (DL:120, UL: 50) through router. Low on memory.
Summary: If you have dropped connection problems and constant reboots here is a possible fix. Take the wall wart that came with it and throw it in the trash. Just because it lights up your router doesn't mean it's up to snuff. Find another 12v 500ma wall wart and try that.
Pros: Sleek. It worked at the beginning.
Cons: Internal antennas. 2mb flash only allows for dd-wrt micro.
Summary: Simple and easy to use, plug it in, configure a few things and you're set.
Pros: I've owned this router for many years now and it is still running strong. I have had very little problems, not enough to deduct a star. This router is powered on 24/7 365 days a week and has not failed me in the two-three years I have owned it. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good router.
Summary: Obviously it's discontinued now but if you have a chance to pick up one of these, PLEASE avoid it at all costs. I'm going back to my trusty GL, atleast it works. Oh, and they still make and support it.
Pros: Sometimes it works?
Cons: Constantly getting disconnected with this router. It's shared and I'm using a wired connection but others in my household are utilizing the wireless ability and they're also getting kicked from the service at the same time as me. I've tried flashing the firmware, new firmware (dd-wrt), playing ar...
