4 out of 5 eggsThis was a cool experience.

Pros: This router was great for me. It was my internet that sucked. It held wifi connections for a long time. It covered the whole house well. Even to the master bedroom going through two walls.

This router really came in handy. My internet used to come from a 2.4ghz radio. I eventually turned off the 2.4ghz radio in the router due to conflicts. Most of my wifi network is 5ghz compatible.

Cons: I remember how upset I was about this router. 30 days after I bought it; I got an email advertising the router for 20 bucks less. ARG. I never had a chance to see gigabit speeds either. It went down before it's time was up!

Other Thoughts: This was my first dual-band. This router stopped working recently. I had dd-wrt on it for the last 2 months or so. It seemed nice. I've already noticed a weird disconnect on the replacement for this one... I actually wouldn't mind buying this again.

2 out of 5 eggsMIxed Emotions On This Router

Pros: WAS very reliable for three years at handling Internet Speeds of up to 50Mbps with no major issues.

Cons: Runs hot, needs to be rebooted regularly, would not run WiFi with active wired device running, seems to perform less reliably with more devices added, 5G band rather useless, expensive considering limitations. HIgh Price considering what it delivers, Buggy

Other Thoughts: I bought the E3000 in June of 2011 basically because it was on sale for $89.97 and considering the needs I anticipated in my new house, I knew my five year-old Netgear N-Router, just wasn't going to cut it.

For the most part it worked reliably out-of-the box however, I did require tech support several times over the first three months to get my settings jut right for my purposes.

The biggest problem I ran into which Cisco could never resolve and in retrospect they should have offered me a replacement because of it was that if I had a wired device (such as my Blu-ray player) connected to it through an Ethernet port, it would either shutdown the Wifi completely or slow it down to a crawl. This happened regardless of the wired device connected to it and once I turned off the wired device (thus severing the connection), WiFi would return to normal.

It got to the point where I just began purchasing TrendNet WIreless Gaming Adapters which connect through a WPS setup turning wired devices into WiFi devices.

So, for the last two years plus, I really haven't had any issues with it that a simple reboot wouldn't solve. This is common for pretty much any Wireless Router but I thought it should be mentioned as I have noticed this need to be rebooted become more and more frequent the longer I owned it and the more devices I taxed it with (I am currently up to 22 devices, with at least 10 running at any given time).

I have been paying for 25 Mbps and 50Mbps service and the E3000 consistentlt delivered those speeds despite the fact that here is usally at least a slightly noticeable dropoff in speed from wired to wireless. If there ever was (under normal operating conditions), it was negligible and well within the range of what my ISP promised.

I've also noticed it getting MUCH hotter more recently than it has in the past to the point where it simply would no function even with a reboot because it got so hot.

Ultimately, the final nail in the coffin for the E3000 came to day when upgraded to 150 Mbps service and despite the fact that I can connect with that speed (or close to it) through the E3000's Ethernet ports, I'm only getting 30 - 40 Mbps wireless, regardless of device or distance to he router (bith I and the ISP's technician tested it at a distance of 6 feet)..

I was lucky that I got the E3000 for $90, but this is traditionally a $200 router and for that price, a consumer should really be able to expect more, especially after only three years of ownership. This thing was buggy out of the box and multiple owners have reported this and all for a variety of different reasons but there is no good reason that it shouldn't be able to handle a heavy device load or higher bandwidth speeds. PCWorld reported getting 117 Mbps out of it which is still considerably lower than what I'm paying for but a drastic improvement over its current operation.

In closing, the bottom-line is that for the pricetag, this should have been more reliable a

5 out of 5 eggsBest Router i've had since I had a WRT54G

Pros: Ive lost count of how many years I've had this router... I wanna say 4 years now? Never have any issues with it. Great range. Looking at the Routers that are out now I hope I don't have to replace it any time soon cause Linksys seems to be going the other way.

Cons: Gets a little warm but, not enough to warm a room.

Other Thoughts: As stated I upgrade this from my WRT54G With the Range boost antennas. This router has no external antenna but, has far better range then my old router. Easy setup for wireless security, doesn't need to be rebooted hardly ever... love it

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: Dual Band.
Has usb media port.
Slim and compact with no antennas
3 years and going strong.

Cons: USB media port is useless unless you use an external drive. USB speeds are wicked slow through it. Better off just plugging a NAS into it.
Corded PCS network with Wireless N devices and Not B/G. I tried many combinations with the firmware and cannot figure this one out. Do not want to brick it with non-stock firmware and I shouldn't have to. Not that big of a deal now, but when i start migrating to Wifi and android, this will be a problem.

Other Thoughts: Definitely the best bang for your buck. Linksys knows what its doing. Have not purchased a model since Belkin bought them, but their older models definitely are worth the price tag.

1 out of 5 eggsNo support from Linksys

Pros: Router works well.

Cons: The firmware on this router has a major security flaw, which is exploited by the "Moon Virus". Linksys claimed that they were going to issue a firmware fix, but they haven't done it yet. In fact, about a year ago they have pulled the latest firmware from their website - you can't download any firmware at all. If you ask the company about it, you get no response. This leads me to believe that this router is no longer supported - very hard to believe for a product that's still being sold.. I wouldn't buy another product from Linksys/Cicso, without some clear indication that they actually support them, for example with firmware patches for security problems.

5 out of 5 eggsFixed Wireless Signal

Pros: Was getting horrible signal with several wireless cards. Purchased this and went from 500k to 11MB speeds. Bypassing having a wireless NIC to CAT5 directly into bridge.

Cons: None, it's a cisco product.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Router

Pros: Decent throughput and ping times, better than my old router actually. Doesn't overheat like my old router did (so far anyway). I like the overall design. Was able to use with a Gigabit switch connected to one of the ports like I wanted and they play well together.

Cons: Does occasionally drop connections, but it's very rare. Usually only happens now and then when I'm doing online gaming (with QoS enabled). That might be due to my ISP though.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Router

Pros: Wireless N works great on my laptop. The xbox and wii are using G and run great. The hard line ports work great. The speeds seem a little slower than my previous linksys router, but I only see it doing speed tests. Performance on downloads, uploads and gaming are reliable and fast.

Cons: None
