1 out of 5 eggsDrops Wireless Connection

Pros: Ethernet works perfectly.

Cons: Wireless connection drops all the time. Random disconnects from the router. I have multiple laptops and am using both the G and the N networks. Laptops drop wireless connection at the exact same time.

Other Thoughts: I have updated the firmware and it still isn't working. It is very disappointing because I have always purchased from Linksys. I might have to return this or get one that is not dropping connection all the time.

5 out of 5 eggspretty good

Pros: I was considering using ddwrt, but after i updated the linksys/cisco firmware I had all of the options that I need. My laptop has been connected for more than 24 hours and hasn't shown any drops in the logs. It's really fast and works well with my other routers acting as WAPs. It looks nice where it is too and just seems to add more visual appeal to my desk. I tested the storage link and it works really well also, but I'm not too worried about storage at this point.

Cons: It didn't come with a stand...had to use one from an older router.

Other Thoughts: Wish it came with a stand. The power brick for this thing is actually bigger than the one for my x200. Something I found amusing.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic router !

Pros: This router worked right out of the box , took 10 minutes to set up and have running . Did not use the cd , logged into 192.168.1.1 and set up .
Great range , no more congestion , video , voip mp3 on one chanel , surfing on the other . In all 8 computers running smoothly , not one had trouble hooking up wireless ,and a 500gb hard drive
Don't understand all the neg reviews , must have been defective units . That or the cd install messes things up ? Will soon use ddwrt to see how much more it can do . If you can find one of the wrt600n get it ! Tried a wrt610 , this blows it away .

Cons: wish it came with a stand , used the one from my old wrt300n , worked , lets it run cooler.
wish it had detachable antennas

Other Thoughts: best home router I have ever used , and I have had d-link netgear and belkin .

4 out of 5 eggsSolid product

Pros: Works great. I installed DD-WRT firmware on the unit immediately after powering it up. Bandwidth and throughput are as good or better than the WRT350N I was using.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: DD-WRT really adds to the capability of these higher end devices.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Router

Pros: - Wireless-N
- Wide-band 40Mhz
- WPA2-AES/Enterprise and RADIUS
- Built-in NAS via USB storage
- Does the job
- Connection never drops
- Looks good

Cons: - None... yet

Other Thoughts: Linksys redeems itself. If anyone remembers owning the Linksys WRT54s... you know what I mean. No more random connection drops. ICMP echo filter only filters ICMP echo requests for the router, NOT networked computers.

5 out of 5 eggsLinksys WRT600N

Pros: Great true dual-band that runs N, G, simultaneously without a hitch (takes little tweaking). Gigabit routing, firewall, USB storage and built well. It’s got a bad rap with some, however in my opinion, with a little expertise, it a snap to set-up and has worked primo for me getting insane mbps bandwidth speeds simultaneously running both N, & G together on both wireless 2.4 & 5 Ghz respected frequencies on a fairly complex business network.

Cons: Must have at least v1.01.35 build 5 or newest firmware. If you call Linksys, they want you to “tone-down” for more compatibility. Run this router all-the way open like it should be! Unless you pay $$$ for commercial routers you just don't have the luxury of an on/off switch. Do not use the setup CD, it's a joke.

Other Thoughts: I would take this router over the 610N any day. I don't like the dummied-down version of the 610N and prefer the 600N features/functions much better.

It’s sad tech companies have to sell so many people dumb-downed versions of originally great designed products. Most consumers just don’t have the patience or insight to learn how to use some tech products that is are a “little sophisticated”. This product kick's, and yes it is a "little sophisticated" for those who are looking for dumb-down product I would buy something that has has large green buttons and smiley faces. It's sad Linksys sent this great product out-to-pasture.

1 out of 5 eggsNot even close

Pros: N capibility, Gigabit routing capibilites, USB port, Stylish, Dual Band

Cons: Firmware is terrible, didn't come with DD-WRT, drops 2.4 ghz connection every now and then, didn't do what was advertised right out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Cisco being the industry leader, I expected a lot more from them. I would at least expect it to work out of the box. The firmware is terrible, it would configure correctly until I installed DD-WRT. However once I installed DD-WRT things started to work a lot better. It's configurable now, I have a lot more features, and the connection doesn't drop any where near as much.

Still doesn't work the way it should for the price you pay.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Reliable Dual-Band Wireless N!

Pros: I really did just drop in the CD, run the installation program, connect up the router, and go from there. I did the advanced stuff online (flashed firmware to latest offered by Linksys) and then connected up the rest of the new gear to my other computers and to a newer HP printer that allows a wireless connection. The 600 provides a fast and reliable dual-band wireless N connection. I bought 2 of the WUSB300N devices at the same time for my other two computers. Direct comparison - my old Linksys G router (WRT54G or similar) would not reliably maintain a connection with my computer in the basement. Using same computers and merely swapping out the router gear for the new N standard gave me a solid wireless connecttion to the basement - and I had no need to move anything.

Cons: None really at this point except with reagrd to OS choice. I found it far easier to set all the wireless-connected computers up under Win Vista Premium 32b (my HTPC) or Win XP MCE (my basement computer), than under Win XP Pro 64b (What I first tried on my new HTPC). In Vista, control of the 300's is done by Windows and I don't even see the Linksys app pop up. In XP Pro 64b, the Linksys app would flash in and out even with a connection made... Distracting for sure. In contrast, this new router is controlled by a computer that is still running XP Pro 32b with SP3 and it all works fine - even the Linksys network monitoring software runs without a hitch. Go figure, but I think this is really an issue with driver compatibility for Win XP Pro 64b, YMMV.

Other Thoughts: I bought all this router hardware along with the parts to build a new HTPC so I had quite a tech-frenzy last weekend putting it all together and getting it running. I considered the sleeker-looking 610 but maximum PC really likes the 600 - which with its antenna array looked more serious to me as well - so I bought it - for more money (like $60 more as Newegg was offering a solid rebate on the 610). Next stop - the new Linksys home media system that needs a dual-band wireless N connection to work best...
