1 out of 5 eggsDon't Bother

Pros: Easy to setup and use.

Cons: Drops connectivity constantly which gets worse over time.

Other Thoughts: I had issues from the beginning with this router but I thought it was due to my house and computer. I've since replaced it and life is much better.

3 out of 5 eggs$30 for help after 90 days

Pros: Fairly reliable after 8 months, reasonably good download and upload speed, reasonably good range.

Cons: I am able to get about 70% signal strength about 40 ft and through one wall. I plan to put wireless in my basement so I bought an amped SR 10000 to extend the range to about 80 ft and down one floor. I had some issues and tried to load the startup cd in my Vista op sys computer and it would not let me load because it claimed I didn't have service pack 1 (which I did) I tried to contact cisco to see what the issue was and they said they would help me for $30. I had the product for more than 90 days. This is quite a contrast to Amped wireless which helped me with an issue without asking if I had the product for 90 days

1 out of 5 eggsBEWARE, DO NOT BUY

Pros: easy setup

Cons: Have had this router for two months, worked great, until it just started giving very slow speeds. From 20 mbps to 1.65, called Linksys, they were very nice, but after two hours of troubleshooting, finally says I have defective unit, duh! Received second unit yesterday, SAME PROBLEMS!!! Do not buy e2500, very frustrating....

1 out of 5 eggsOkay for the average or novice user

Pros: Slim, nice looking, compact and stable. Wireless N 600. Can host a guest network as well as 2 other networks. Supports 802.11a/b/g/n. Holds DD-WRT for added management and support.

Cons: Slow after time, low end, Fast Ethernet/100mbps for the LAN ports. Gets warm. See Comments

Other Thoughts: This is a great router for general use. I am a power user. I do heavy network file transfers. Being limited by a router that has a faster wireless system than its LAN ports can carry is not only pathetic its disappointing and stupid. The LAN ports should at least be as fast as the WLAN. Makes no sense to me why I would have bought this knowing what I know. If your a power user like me buy a TP-Link Router, Gigabit Switch and a wireless N AP and go to town. I knocked it 4 eggs for lack of function and performance, plus i feel a bit ripped off. For the avg. user with DSL or standard/low end cable internet and have a small area for coverage this is a stable router for you.

Ownership is listed @ more than a year. Thats how long it sat on my shelf unused.

I use a TL-R470T+ router from TP-Link and a TP-Link 8 port 1G switch and a Linksys WRT54G v.2 serving my wireless. I will use this router to serv my wireless to have the wireless N capabilites.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat When Working

Pros: Worked great the first month or so. Great connectivity and easy to set up out of the box. The dual bands were a plus

Cons: After first month, gotten sluggish, weak connection, dropped connections a lot, even after going over different settings

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsWeak signal

Pros: It's ok if you hardwire it

Cons: I get 50 hardwired and 20 wireless using this thing. It's been pretty disappointing since I bought it. I actually had the wireless computer about 5 feet from the router and still only got 20mb/s. Also, the support is terrible if you don't have a warranty.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsNot Worth It

Pros: When it worked decent.

Cons: Had this thing for 9 months and in that 9 months consistently had dropped wifi and slow to reconnect. Finally it just quit working like it should and worked when it felt like it. Contacted Cisco tech support only to have them try and sell me ,ore warranty and pay them to help me. After 9 months and this thing finally died and I bought it new and than could not get the help to fix it that I needed without costing me more money is ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: I will not recommend this product to family or friends and will move to other routers that provide better service.

2 out of 5 eggsWi Fi issues

Pros: I'm not sure. It works... sometimes?

Cons: Consistant connection loss, dropped packets, sluggish response from router over Wi-Fi.

Pinging the gateway with around a 5-10ms response time, 2 feet from the router.

Has been with me in two apartments, and in multiple rooms in each place. The issue also persists through multiple wifi adapter, laptops, and cell phones. I've ruled out everything BUT the router.

Other Thoughts: $60 refurbished. I should have my head checked.

Manufacturer Response:
