Surprisingly Reliable

Noah D. Karchmer "hawknoah", Amazon
6 March 2011
  • Summary: Not a perfect router- it would get super hot and need to be turned off for a moment and reset at least every few weeks. It was no snap to set up either, as I recall. However, it lasted about 5 1/2 years before it died, which is way longer than I would have guessed.

Love/Hate relationship.

  • Summary: It was excellent for the first year or so, then it just gave out. I suspect someone may have done something to cause it to stop working, but there appears to be no sign of damage, so I rate it at a 4, because for the price, it is worth replacing yearly. ;-)

  • Summary: After I finally got the thing working after 6 hours of tech support with Linksys, 3 hours with my ISP, and 2 hours with Microsoft, I am please with the product's performance. I'll tell you now don't waste your time with all the tech supports.

Set Up Bumpy But Working Great After Technical Assistance

Super G, Amazon
3 August 2006
  • Summary: Honestly? Frustrating...at first. Wireless router installation wizard on CD was innefective. Could not get it to work on Toshiba notebook with online install either. Tried several of the set-ups recommended by Amazon reviewers, to no avail.

Works great, but quality control missed something

Sam Recycles, Amazon
2 July 2006
  • Summary: The router works great for what it is, a compact travel router. I use it at hotels to set up a wireless network. I did notice that a corner of the product was not snapped into place, and i haven't been able to snap it in myself. I wish quality Control would have caught it.

Good wireless router, but wished it had stronger signal strength

Maxster "Wireless Maverick", Amazon
29 June 2006
  • Summary: Relatively easy to setup, but I did need to contact Tech support in order to get the default password - poor documentation I think. I have installed many wireless routers and I almost always have to contact tech support for assistance.

Perfect... after a troublesome install

My Fake Name "Faker", Amazon
23 December 2005
  • Summary: It's tiny, very lightweight, and has a good range. The install, however, was not easy by any means. The router would not connect to the internet for some reason. I consider myself to be computer savvy but I buckled and called tech support.

Great for Mac users too!

Navarro Parker "Motion Graphics Dude", Amazon
26 July 2005
  • Summary: I was thinking of purchasing an Airport Express module, but purchased this instead. It has a lower price, similar size, and a built-in 4-port switch which won me over. It was easy to configure using Safari and it's built-in setup wizard (no software needs to be installed).

Value for money

  • Summary: A very reliable & compact router from Linksys. It behaved a bit erratic for a day when I enabled the MAC address filtering, but then resolved it on it's own. Overall satisfied.

Tiny but does the job very well

Glamourpuss, Amazon
10 April 2008
  • Summary: Bought this to replace a Belkin which constantly kept dropping the connection. This router is extremely compact but does the job perfectly - set up took a little longer than I expected as I had to do stuff with MAC addresses but the online instructions were absolutely idiot proof so it was up and...
