Works great in my big older home

by Berniece on 3/3/2013

Purchased this about 1 month ago and was easy to set up and worked great until I had a power outage because of massive snow storms.Could not access the setup page. Live Chat to Linksys ended in resetting my router and then I had nothing!! After a phone call to Linksys, their advanced specialist Jane was wonderful in helping to get me back up and running. Turned out it had to do with the security feature, but she knew just what to do and explained everything and even explained to me why my previous efforts to restore things didn't work. Highly recommend the router and Linksys advanced support!!!
