Customer Reviews of Linksys E2000 Advanced Wireless-N Router
Flash with DD-WRT!!!4/3/2012
First thing I did was flash with DD-WRT to prevent any connection or overheating problems that the stock firmware is known to have. Underclocked the CPU to 300 MHz, then entered my settings. Transmit power is excellent, and is capable of virtual subnetworks (one for me, one for guests). Been running for 3 months without a single reset. This makes it the most stable router I've ever used, more than the WRT54G. WPA2, gigabit ethernet, and speedy 5GHz N makes this the perfect router for most people's home or small business networking needs. The only con is the lack of simultaneous dual-band. For that, you'll have to spring for the E-3000. Otherwise, excellent router.
Item was exactly as described3/5/2012
Excellent performance and easy set up right out of2/2/2011
The last time I purchased a router was nine years ago and it was a Linksys brand. Due to an electrical surge last night it no longer works so I purchase this Linksys E2000 today. I could not be more pleased! Thinking I had to set up the WEP security and run a discovery of wireless networks available on each wireless device in our home I was surprised to find how easy it was to set this router up. It comes with software (don't change any of the router settings) that does all the work for you. From three laptops, a wireless printer, a wireless Internet radio and two Netflix enabled PS3 game stations - it was an easy and fast setup. Once online I discovered that Internet speed was lightening fast and gaming on Facebook fast as well. I did not know what I had been missing due to my old router. If you are in need of a router I would not hesitate to recommend this one and at a very reasonable price of $69.00 at Walmart too!
tough to configure, no headaches from then on...12/28/2010
it took an hour n 40 mts to get this configured out of the box... they don't publish that it wont work with anything higher than Vista SP1/2... once configured & set up, it worked like clockwork... coverage is great & performance is good... occasionally (once every week) WiFi stops working on the devices connected, the problem goes away once I restart the connection & reboot the router...
Router so far is the BOMB!!12/11/2010
I have bought 3 of these now. 1 for home 1 for work and 1 for CO worker. If you buy a recondotioned unit first thing you should do is plug in power and hold little red Reset on back of unit for 30 seconds. (sets unit to defualt settings) This will blow out any previous passwords and or settings. Then put in install cd and follow setup instructions. Shipped Fast, Range good, speed great haven't had to power down and back up in a month so that is great. I am using a mix of wireless devices, phones, and bands (G/N & direct connect) all work fine. The router is in basment and Old linksys G dongle in pc up stairs (farthest possible in 2350 sq foot house) Gets 3 bars and fast speed. Oh I also went to Cisco's site and downloaded and updated firmware. Easy!! (check model # and make sure your installing correct ver)
So Far, Not so Good9/12/2010
The stats on the E2000 made this router sound as though its setup was going to be a snap. Well, it wasn't. I've tried to install it 4 times and each time it doesn't complete the install. I just keep getting the same error messages. So far, I have not gotten beyond the initial power up and connection of the Internet cable. After 5 mins, it tells me that the operation is not complete and suggests going to the Linksys website. Obviously, that means hooking up the old router in order to do so. I called COX before buying this router and they said it would work fine. I am not happy with this product so far. I'll try again next weekend, but I'm not optimistic that I'll get it working easily.
easy setup, faster than old g router, strong signal through entire house, good price.
Just follow directions and you will have a easy setup. This new N Router is much quicker than the older model I had installed. So far, am very pleased with it. Good signal through out the house. When you install this product you will notice it will tell you are protected, but the Guest-SignIn is unprotected. This is normal. A Guest can't sign in as they must know the Password, which they will have to get from you. Router is setting on a small open stand so air can get to it from all sides and it remains at room temperature.
Super Easy Setup5/3/2010
I have been looking to add wireless to my wired network for over a year, but had heard stories of how hard it is to add security to the wireless network. I looked at a number of products by downloading user manuals prior to purchase. In many cases, there were no instructions for Mac users. Then I saw this new router from Cisco and decided to give it a try. Installation was a piece of cake! And adding additional products in the future looks equally simple. Just open the set-up and tell it you want to add a devise. I also really like the fact that my desktop computers are ethernet connected (substantially faster), and the wi-fi is fast enough for streaming video to my laptop.
