3 out of 5 eggsTurning Flakey

Pros: This is a followup review.
I received the item and updated the old firmware.
It WORKED great for nearly 3 weeks.

Cons: It's turning flakey. Twice in the last 48 hours it has refused to connect to the modem and internet. Works nice on the local LAN.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had any problems like this with my other devices.
Once more and it will be out of here.

5 out of 5 eggsAs Expected

Pros: Works well. So much better than my 10/100 routers. Doubles the transfer speed for my NAS storage devices.

Cons: Comes without any documentation of any kind. Has some kind of usb device with the router, not really sure what to do with it.

Other Thoughts: Connected the router via a Ethernet cable and setup all the parameters. Unpluged the old device, connected this in it's place and powered it up. Everything worked without a glitch. The only thing I can find different is that it is faster on the LAN. Just what I wanted.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None.

Cons: DOA. Flashing blue power light as soon as I plugged it in. The word "refurbished" can have different meanings. I do expect the item to at least be powered on, though, before it's shipped. I have doubts that happened here.
Linksys' exe to flash new firmware was unsuccessful. The router couldn't be seen by the computer while plugged into any of the LAN ports.

Other Thoughts: RMA approved but I would have to pay return shipping. That's throwing good money after bad. I took a chance and lost but will not order from Quantum-Wireless again.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid but slow

Pros: There appears to be a delay in packet transmission regularly compared to other routers of a similar price. When we switched to this router we noticed that the download speeds for videos were much slower and would have to wait for videos to start or they would stop often since the play rate exceeded the download rate. This is on wireless (computer) and wired (BluRay player). My previous routers wireless went but its wired functions still work. I can now watch Youtube and Netflix through my BluRay play without it being choppy because I ran the ethernet cables from my modem to my old router, and ran them from my old router seperately to my BluRay player and Cisco router. So our computers connect wireless through Cisco and our BluRay connects wired through our old router. For normal surfing and uploading/downloading applications and files the Cisco router is solid. There appear to be minor delays in normal uploading/downloading nothing really bad. I believe I am still running faster than the speeds I had with my old router when we were on DSL, but not as fast as my old router when we switched to cable internet.

Cons: Slower download/upload speeds on wired and wireless connections that are not conducive to streaming video.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't beat this deal!

Pros: Easy manual setup. 10/100/1000 WAN!! I have a large LAN and this router handles the large loads very well. 3 gameing PCs and HD media streaming all at once, no hic-cups

Cons: Just for reference I tried the USB installation software. I could not get it to work right away and abandoned it. Manual configuration was very easy any way.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a backup router to my E2000. But it works so well the E2000 is the backup now

1 out of 5 eggsits nice to look at

Pros: sleek, clean, white

Cons: slow, slow, slow

Other Thoughts: I had faster speeds on 4g than through this wireless router.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi.

Thank you for your valuable feedback and we would like to help you make the connection faster. We have posted your concern in our Community Forum and one of the users suggested to bypass the router and hook up your computer to see if you still have slow internet connection.

4 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: Linksys LINK-M20-RM Valet Plus Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Got Linksys to assist in setting the router up. Now, it works fine. The fact that it was a refurb caused the Linksys people to distance themselves. They asked if I had my receipt; I said yeas; they helped.

Cons: Other than the faulty setup software, once I got the correct software, device worked fine.

1 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: Linksys LINK-M20-RM Valet Plus Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: It showed up...

Cons: It didn't have the necessary firmware to install the thing. It's just a paperweight.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi.

We're so sorry to know you have firmware issues. We have posted in our Community Forums your concern and one of the users replied with links on where to download the firmware and also how to manually upgrade the firmware.

1 out of 5 eggsRefurbished: Linksys LINK-M20-RM Valet Plus Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: None

Cons: Supplied software failed to locate router. Linksys said that the item was out of warranty, so they were NO help. Quantum-Wireless Tech Support were good. The RMA department, not so much. I am returning the item for the reason mentioned, and for a replacement WITH the appropriate software. They act like I'm returning it for fun.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi.

We're sorry to hear you were not able to successfully install the software in your router. Could you please provide us either your contact information or your case number given by the support. We'd like to help out.

Thanks,
