Summary: Unless drastic changes take place in the router industry I wont buy one again. The next one I will build myself and use something like IPcop. Fix your firewall Linksys, Educate the customer properly on gaming with the wireless connection. Wireless isnt ready for gaming yet.
Pros: The wireless is fantastic. I live in a 2 story home and the router is located on the 2nd floor. My laptop can get a excellent signal on any floor including the attic and basement. I can even get a good signal out back in my garage.
Cons: I had to spend alot of time reading up and learning about routers in order to understand not one from any manufcaturer works correctly. Theres always a glitch here and there. I ended up turning mine into a switch simply because the firewall no matter what ports were opened or whether or not DMZ w...
Summary: The reps for linksys are very knowledgable and are there for you. Despite long amounts of time they knew how to get it working and provided great service. The product quality is definately subpar as well as the software department.
Pros: It works. Looks snazzy. The price is great here on Newegg (I needed mine immediately a while back and did not get that benefit)
Cons: This unit is a nightmare to align with home DSL. The calls to the provider and several HOURS on the phone with a Linksys Rep in Singapore 2x finally did the trick. Power surges can reset this thing and get you back to step one. The provided drivers probably won't work, and you will be on the webs...
Great router made fair by halving ram & flash memory

25 June 2008
Summary: The version 3 & before are quite good. Even better than the really old WRT54-Gs before VxWorks that were pretty souped up.
Pros: Cheap router, fairly fast.
Cons: The new ones (version 4) come with half the RAM & half the flash memory of the old ones. That makes this the same as a WRT54G now, the "S" is meaningless in the new ones. This is a problem if you're using alternate firmware, or putting it under a heavy load - such as VoIP or bittorrent. Under eit...
Summary: had a netgear before this one. it was half the price and worked twice as good.
Pros: Does what it should.....most of the time
Cons: Usually it would lose signal in the middle of the night for no reason. Not a 'real' big deal but its not suppose to do that! Would have to reset the router and modem just to get it up and running before my girlfriend would throw a fit 'cause she cant play guitarhero.
Summary: i might as well bought a $20 router if i knew this was going happen.
Pros: worked perfect for 4 months
Cons: after 4 months the router has been experiencing internet throughput loss. if I plug my cable modem directly to my computer I'll get 9450kbps/954kbps, which was what this router could do before. for the past week it gets 1200-4300kbps/600-800kbps basically something happend to this router where my...
