No good !!

  • Summary: A good router, but did not last long, just two years. Suddenly stopped working and the power connector is damage, very fragile. Not recommended.

DO NOT UPDATE!!!!

kc1911 "CNP", Amazon

  • Summary: The lifetime of this router was very short lived in my hands. I was the second owner, but I'm sure it was one hell of a router. When I received it, it was easy to setup and piggy back off my current wireless router.

Crashes

  • Summary: Works fine if you don't use WPA. As soon as I enabled WPA, it will crash every few days and require rebooting. Google it, I'm not the only one. (If you don't know what WPA is, learn - unless you don't mind people stealing your internet and passwords.

Wireless does not work well.

Harrkev "harrkev", Amazon
2 January 2007
  • Summary: I got this at a great price several months ago, and have been using it as a wired router, and was not using the wireless portion at all. Recently my wife got a shiny new laptop, and I decided to set the wireless portion up.

Not overly impressed

James N, Amazon
30 June 2006
  • Summary: The unit does what it's supposed to and for a non tech person it was easy enough to set up but there was some problems getting the correct configuration initiqally which was very frustrating. I had a standard ADSL modem supplied by the provider and then decided to "upgrade".

Disappointing

Harry Tarsky, Amazon
23 February 2006
  • Summary: This antenna-less model just doesn't transmit adequately. My two PCs are only some 20 feet apart, with a single wall in between. The signal ranges from barely usable to unusable. Even the expensive addition of an external antenna (which completely negates the savings for this model compared to the...

Very Poor Range

Friendly Fred "the fraulein's friend", Amazon
10 February 2006
  • Summary: I have it mounted on a wall in my study about 6 feet away from my computer, about 7 feet from my modem and monitor. I did that to minimize the possibility of EMI. My Dell laptop has a new Linksys 2.4 GHz WPC54G notebook adapter.

Not good for various reasons...

Shaun, Amazon
10 November 2005
  • Summary: Reason 1: The Weight The weight of the router is so light that it constantly moves around your desktop. Why? The cables plugged into the back pretty much make standing it up vertically a bit of a problem. Not huge...but regardless, I had the router tip over a few times.

Probably not a good idea

Jason O, Amazon
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Died after 6 months, possibly by over-heating. The wifi reception was intermittent, requiring a reset every time someone lost connection. Too light and clumsy. Once you had 4 or 5 cables plugged in, the cable's weight dictated where the box sat.

NOT Compatible for XBOX LIVE!

Matthew Jackson "CEO of Mattsa (Amazon Seller)", Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: This product doesn't work with xbox live. NAT settings are restricted which means it will limit the amount of games you may join. I'd advise the Netgear modem/router as it is much easier to install and a lot more people use it. Plus, it benifits from MUCH better product support.
