1 out of 5 eggswon't buy linksys again

Cons: Linksys support was snooty, and were unwilling to help unless you paid them $14.

Other Thoughts: bought a cheap netgear instead.

1 out of 5 eggsBad batch?

Pros: Price.

Cons: Constantly resetting to get connectivity and its getting worse. I tried to load DD-WRT firmware and it was so unstable I barely got the stock firmware loaded back on. I also tried with different versions of the DD-WRT firmware. A friend bought this router also. He is having the same troubles. I assume it was a bad batch of routers seeing how everyone else rates it so high.

Other Thoughts: Would like to get it replaced but I waited too long.

1 out of 5 eggsSuprisingly does work

Pros: Does work, like other reviews have said, it is an easy setup, l love the dd-wrt open source software once I translated it from Chinese to English (which you have to do every time you change a tab), great range and security.

Cons: Shipping took nearly the max of the time frame, no tracking information given, from reading the description thoroughly before purchasing I believed I was getting a brand new router in the box, not a very low end refurbished unit, bundled up and put in a "ziploc" bag, missing manual and setup disc, was not damaged in shipping but the plastic casing of the router looked like it had been tied to and dragged from a car, the detachable antanae(s) were new and in new condition, I was rightly upset and should have called new egg, I know they would have taken care of me, but after a while I was able to turn it into a positive experience, Im glad someone pulled this router out of a land fill and refurbished it and charged a price of an in box new router so I can help save mother earth. almost forgot browsing through the software and translating it takes nearly triple the time...maybe it's time I should learn Chinese...that would be a positive.

Other Thoughts: I do feel better after being able to comment...Thanx.

1 out of 5 eggsI don't know why this item is so popular

Pros: Ease of setup was pretty good

Cons: This item was to bring my system more up to date as I was using an older netgear router and thought I would go with linksys this time since this item was so highly rated.

I was extremely disappointed as attempting to set up security and authentication did not work very well. If I mimicked my old routers settings my devices would connect to this router. If I tried a new SSID or security type then I could not connect some devices or they would drop repeatedly. I tried multiple settings/channels/firmware upgrades nothing worked for fixing the wireless. I got out my old netgear router, reset it and even changed my security settings and all devices reconnected with no problem and stayed connected on channels the linksys router could not maintain.

Other Thoughts: Don't always trust high ratings....

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage out of the box

Pros: Simple setup, cheap device

Cons: Probably will die within 30 days. Not much customization options. Occasionally needs a restart for no apparent reason.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these to use in a medium sized building. One died, the other needs to be restarted occasionally because it will stop allowing connections at random. I had planned to flash ddwrt onto these devices when I had some spare time, but one bricked itself before I even had the chance to try it out. Unfortunately I missed my 30 day window to get an RMA.
Don't buy these pieces of garbage, even if you want to flash custom firmware, they'll probably commit suicide anyway.

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.

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.
