  • Summary: Good product, little outdated these days. But works great for an inexpensive lillte router. Support from manufacturer is kinda iffy.

Basic Router

Anthony S., Newegg
17 December 2008
  • Summary: Good basic product.
  • Pros: Only had to reset it twice in 2 months. Easy instructions for setup. This is my first wi-fi router.
  • Cons: After trying to use the software in the package on my Vista laptop, I decided the best option was an uninstall. I use the standard Windows connection wizard and it works like a charm. Full signal all over my small house. 5 eggs if the software wasn't junk.

Hardware Great; Software Needs Help

Francis T., Newegg
3 October 2008
  • Summary: Make sure to enable security for Wireless encryption WEP at minimum; WPA preferred. That way your neighbors can't surf on your dime. Also, you can be even more paranoid by only allowing certain MAC addresses as well as the WPA. Google if you want more on WPA.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. I work from home and have had zero problems to date. Super easy to install.
  • Cons: Software for installation would allow me to set a 10 character password, but when I tried to access via http://192.168.1.1 it would not recognize the password I just set. Advice to others is to by pass the cd in the box and use the url above to access the config page yourself. If you used the cd ...

OK for the small home

Anonymous, Newegg
2 July 2008
  • Pros: It was very easy to set up and the LINKSYS OS is not too bad. The signal strength is OK for small or medium houses, but I have a large older house with thicker walls. The router I got was v7.2 which was hackable with the DD-WRT firmware so I could increase the TX output, but even pushing it up to...
  • Cons: Not the strongest signal in a large house or one with many walls or old construction. I would use this as a repeater or another ad-hoc AP. If you want faster and better go with N.
