Excerpt: A router is an essential peripheral for upgrading wired LAN connection to wifi. Our home network hosts a couple of wireless devices thanks to the router, but it’s the faulty modem (to which the router is tethered) that is in need of fixing or, better yet, replacement. …
Summary: I was tired of using off-the-shelf-one-year-working Modem Routers. Unfortunately, the device provided by Sky is just horrid, and I wanted to finally buy something that will serve as a wifi and hard-wire router (modem varies depending on your neighborhood's available network, or which company you...
Summary: Bought this product not realizing that it is made specifically for the german market, seller didnt know this either. Took some time and a lot of phone calls to find out this router is not compatible with UK telephony systems.
Linksys X3000 Advanced Wireless N ADSL2 with Modem Router
Mr. R. M. Wood, Amazon
9 November 2013
Summary: Brilliant router, very easy setup unlike the new TP-Link TD-W8960N I bought and could not set up, waste off money. But this Linksys is the bees knees, set up and into the net in minutes, really, minutes, no going into 192.168.1.1, its all done by the software.
Summary: I have to say that this modem router is without doubt the easiest router I have ever set up. I did not purchase this from Amazon - but found a better deal (unusual for me). Lovely neat design and like I said - for someone with limited computer knowledge - a doddle to set up.
Summary: My order was delivered quickly and so far very pleased with the performance, the only problem is because the Linksys X3000 came from Germany it had a two pin transformer, so I have had to purchase an adaptor.
Perfectly functional once set-up but average range only.

Summary: Once this is installed, as long as you don't need it to penetrate many walls, it could be a perfectly suitable one box solution. As such, my 3 star rating may seem a bit harsh but there are a couple of negative points..
After a few months of living with it, from bad to worse
6 March 2012
Summary: I am downgrading the rating I initially gave this (which wasn't exactly brilliant to start with). After a few weeks of living with this, I am now shopping for a new router. I initially gave this an "OK" but it's now just plain rubbish. The firmware on these is a disaster.
Summary: Despite many negative reviews I chose to take a chance on it. So far I have an excellent experience. Usual CISCO's easy to navigate setting up options and (so far) flawless performance is a delight. Another distinguishing mark is X3500's feature richness.
Summary: I generally quite like this router, it does everything it is supposed to do but from time to time it just hangs and needs a reboot. I got it to replace a netgear router, which was very reliable but didn't offer the control I needed.
