5 out of 5 eggsGreat home wifi router

Pros: Works great and has a good signal throughout the house.
I bought this to replace my Buffalo G54 router that was 5 or so years old.
I pay for 10Mpbs down and 1Mpbs up and get 11+ down and 1+ up consistantly.
My Vizio TV gets a good signal about 15 or so feet away.
Also priced very reasably and I got it just 4 days.
I would recommend this to friends and family.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Cable company wanted to charge me $8.52 a month for their wifi router and i nearly got one until they told me the price. I would've paid $180 over 3 years with their router. With this one it'll pay for itself in 6-7 months.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!

Pros: Was only $50

Cons: Wifi drops in and out, so you'll have to reset often.
After tech support (during first 90 days) failed twice to help, customer service would replace your product, but you'll have to pay shipping.
You have to repeat your personal information, even though you've registered the product.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a tank!

Pros: So like everyone says, put ddwrt on this puppy and fuhgetabouit... The thing works. Again, it's not N or AC, but if u need a working stable router, get it, flash it, forget about it. I have bought a bunch of these over the years, and they are the best.

Cons: Doesn't come in teal

5 out of 5 eggsRock-solid workhorse.

Pros: I've owned a half dozen of these, and dealt with scores of them in the field.

One of the best routers ever made. Add DD-WRT or other firmwares like Tomato etc., and you're golden. Still well worth buying where you don't need N-type speeds.

Cons: None. Worst I can say is that these can occasionally crash under heavy use. Probably not a hardware issue really.

Other Thoughts: The radio can fail prematurely in this router if the user cranks up transmission power too high without adding cooling of some kind. Possible to do with custom firmwares.

5 out of 5 eggsOldie but a Goodie

Pros: These may be an older model, but in my opinion it is still one of the best for commercial applications where speed is not of the utmost importance. This client was looking for a cheap way to implement a wireless network for two non-mission critical PCs and the employees phones.

The pricepoint and stability of this router makes it an excellent choice for these applications. I was able to get two of these for less than the price of a decent AC router and create a WAN that is scalable and sturdy.

Also completely supports DDWRT which is a much more powerful firmware than the stock Linksys.

I highly recommend this router to anyone looking for a good b/g router

Cons: Does not offer wireless bridging. Knew that going into it so I'm not taking off an egg. But if you need that function can still get this and then install DDWRT.

Other Thoughts: Purchased these to install in a customers business which is in a commercial building (concrete walls, raised roof).

1 out of 5 eggsHard to Set up

Pros: seems to broadcast a strong signal....

Cons: Could not get Internet through the router, tried bridging the modem but no luck, shows it can get to internet just the computers connected can't....

Other Thoughts: cost 10.50 to ship back.... nahh ima just throw it in a box till I can give it to somebody needing router w/o internet passthrough, better than no router i guess.

1 out of 5 eggsWhat a pile of

Pros: It arrived on time.

Cons: It will not work with my Vista PC. Prior to buying, I checked and it is listed as Vista compatible. I called Linksys and spent 3 hours on the phone. The last thing they wanted to do was for me to update the software on my wireless device - Atheros. They said to do that then call back. I updated the driver and called back. Then I was told that the router is "out of date" and the only thing they could do was to transfer me to some support group but I WOULD NEED TO PAY FOR THE SUPPORT.

Other Thoughts: I am not to happy the Newegg is selling devices that are so old that the manufacturer will not support the device.

1 out of 5 eggsFailure to launch

Pros: Looks pretty.

Cons: Our old router was having issues dropping signal. Got out the linksys router, and installed exactly according to the CD guide. Took 6 tries to configure the router. Once done, nothing. No internet, no gaming, absolutely nothing worked. Tried several more times, before giving up, and reinstalling the old router. At least it functions. No to mention the antennae wobbled and did not stand up at all on the right side.

Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this router to serve my needs based on the reviews. Yet, when I tried to actually use the router, it was completely broken. It makes me pretty angry I spent good money on a router that fails in every regard.
