Customer Reviews of Linksys E3000 High-Performance Wireless-N Router, Refurbished
Got this router a few months ago and it's been flawless! Easy to setup and the speed is excellent.
Works great, nice upgrade1/16/2011
Bought as an upgrade to wrt54gl. Firmware out of the box is missing key features, like the ability to assign static ips, but newest version downloaded from the web corrected that. A lot of features for the price, and one of the few gigabit routers that is listed as supporting dd-wrt. (I have not installed ddwrt on it yet though, so I can't comment on that, really.)
Works like a champ!1/2/2011
I have had no problems at all with this router since installation. Not one! I am pleased with its performance overall.
My old WRT54G was starting to take a nose dive and I was looking for a solid upgrade. 480MHz CPU, 64MB RAM, 8 MB Memory, Simultaneous 2.4/5Ghz dual-band with gigabit Ethernet. Just so many things going for it. And it supports dd-WRT, which I installed. Features I have yet to test out the USB and 5Ghz frequency. My current card is only 2.4, but I have encountered no issue using this router.
