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 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 Then I was told that the router is "out of date" and the only thing they could do was to transfer me to some support group but I WOULD NEED TO PAY FOR THE SUPPORT.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.

1 out of 5 eggsEnd of Trust

Pros: Affordable

Cons: I have loved these routers for many years, for their sturdy, affordable, open-source reliability, and am saddened by what seems to be a trend. Three of the four WRT 54 Linksys routers i have bought since last summer have died.

They've worked too long for a return, although maybe there's a manufacturer's warranty.

I still use one of these for a primary router, and it's working, but I won't be gambling on them any longer.

Other Thoughts: I do wish there were an easier way to contact manufacturers via Newegg. Our business does a high volume of business here, but trying to contact someone at Newegg for support is always a frustration.

The RMA process (for items less than 30 days old) seems to work great though.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed within a week

Pros: Worked fine - when it worked.

Cons: Twice in a week, it lost connection to the network. There is an ISP supplied modem/router at this location and when the Linksys failed, the other router still functioned correctly.

Other Thoughts: Got an RMA to have it replaced. Sent it back but NewEgg declined it because I did not return the original box. Everything else was returned. Sorry - I expected it to last more than a week and tossed the box in the trash.
Just another example of the decline of NewEg's former excellent customer service. Very sad!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very stable at first. I was having issues with my old router dropping the network, leaving me without wifi until I reset it. The Linksys worked flawlessly....for the first couple weeks.

Cons: I really want to like this product. I have a Linksys modem that is 10 years old that still works great, and after reading all the amazing reviews about the WRT54GL I figured why not go with another Linksys. Well, I've had nothing but trouble after the first couple weeks.

The router lags very hard, which results in nearly unusable internet (We're talking slightly better than dial up speeds). After doing some research, and updating the firmware, the problem seemed resolved (for the first 15 minutes) until the same thing happened again. I'm forced to go back to my old router until I find a suitable replacement.

Other Thoughts: If linksys has a solution on how to get the router working properly, I'm happy to try it, otherwise this router will be on the first truck back to the warehouse.

1 out of 5 eggsNew to junk in less than 6 months

Pros: - Cheap
- Can hardwire several devices

Cons: Broke after about 5 months. The wireless appears to be useless now, so I have to be hardwired to the router or to the modem to get any kind of stable connection. On wireless, speedtest.net gives me 0-5Mbps down, averaging 1 Mbps, 2 up for some reason. Wired, 25 down, 2 up. Sadly, the usual trick of unplugging it and plugging it back in again makes no difference. Looks like I get to shell out for a router that's not utter garbage.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money.

1 out of 5 eggsthis router don't work

Pros: I'm not sure on pros.
I thought it would be new enough to get rid of this low slow data transfer for when i'm playing online multiplayer games on the xbox 360. My ISP might bee the problem but they say i get up to 12mbs but sure infact i never get anything over 1.6 when i look at my black ops 2 bandwith in the options.

Cons: Idk about cons..doesn't mattter i guess.
