decent product for the money but...9/16/2012
...it has less processing power and memory than competeting models from Netgear like the N900 model. this actually matters if you intend to stream from Netflix or connect more than 4 active devices at a time.
The router installed flawlessly and everything on my existing home network got picked up easily. The next day, I did not have internet access. Every troubleshooting step did nothing. A call to Linksys technical support confirmed that the router had died. Linksys sent me an RMA and I was going to exchange. It just so happened that my ISP upgraded my cable modem to one with a built in N router. Well, that just saved me [$] so the router went back for a refund instead.
Great features, extremely powerful wireless range. I have seen some bad reviews on orignal firmware for this router, but everything has been fixed on these with r2. I do alot of setups for small to mid size businesses and this router is on the top of my list for a new office setup.
Excellent features, poor firmware and support2/9/2008
While I usually rave about the Cisco/Linksys products, this particular model is one to avoid. Although it has an impressive list of features for the price, it does not perform as advertised. I have had two of these units for a year, and every version of firmware was worse than the last. Whining noises, DHCP issues, They don't permit FTP transfers, ICL issues, Wireless issues, etc. The company has been slow to address these issues, the phone staff dont have info in their db, and their forums are full of folks sharing the same concerns. I wouldn't be surprised to see a recall or class action for this model. As I write this(2/2008), the current firmware is from October 2007, and has many of these issues. It's possible that they have been addressed since I wrote this, so check their forums to be sure. I have two of these myself, and recommended them to about a half dozen clients. I wish I had not done so, and hope that they get their act together so the product delivers the functionality it advertises. Mike www.getthepictureframing.com
Good, but needs some fixes6/12/2007
It is a very good router and as an overall it is worth every penny, but some stuff needs to be fixed like: some network g will not work with it, I hope they offer a couple of firmware updates that can work for wan using ip v6, there is a couple of improvemnets you can change some settings with out restarting, but it would have been better if you didn't have to restart at all.
