3 out of 5 eggsNot recommended

Pros: I mainly wrote this review to let people know to get the firmware update. Works good until it crashes.

Cons: After about 6 months, the unit requires daily or every other day resets, if your a heavy traffic user. I would not recommend this unit to friends. There are better alternatives.

Other Thoughts: Definitely get the firmware update. I could not connect to my chromecast before I did, and it does run smoother and faster. It might have slowed down my freeze/crash problem, but didnt fix it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great I have had this router for over a year. The firmware crapped out and my speed broke down so I broke down and Flashed it to DD-WRT it was definitely the more recent firmware that was the problem this router screams now and I couldnt be happier

Cons: Firmware Sucks i would recommend reflashing as soon as you get it

Other Thoughts: This product is great on the hardware side of things Linksys is slipping in more recent firmware developments and it is becoming more limited for customization. while I do think it is great that Linksys, is making router setup easy for the casual computer user. they are cutting out the customer base that liked them for the quality and the customization options

2 out of 5 eggsShipped Quick but Slow Speeds

Pros: Easy to setup device. Signal coverage for my home is just OK..On par with my 3 year Refurbished Netgear router.

Cons: No matter what setting I tried and after a firmware update I can not get a connection rate higher that 70mbps to my 3 computers..all have wireless adapter from different companies. On 2 machines the WiFi adapters are rated at 150mbps and the 3rd PC at 300mbps. I get the full rates on each computer when connected to my 3 year old Netgear. Video from my networked HDD now buffers thru the Linksys but plays smooth on the Netgear. Next is to contact Linksys for support I guess.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat little router, throw it out if it ever goes bad

Pros: Good signal, looks nice

Cons: Had one go bad and Cisco's RMA process is broken!

Other Thoughts: This little router looks nice and performs well. Good luck RMAing any Cisco router if one goes bad. I had two of these and one went bad and after two hours on the phone I still have no working RMA information. I think I'm going to throw it out and start looking for another reputable manufacturer (Buffalo, Asus?). That said it's been the first one in a decade to go bad, that's why they must make them so well?

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time and money.

Pros: Reputable brand, nice design, good specs, stronger signal.

Cons: Data stream inconsistent. Streaming video buffering all the time. My other 5 years Cisco router won't even do that.
Exchanged once, shipping on my own. Not worth exchange again because the sale price is cheap. Gave it to my friend to give it a try, Same thing! Don't waste your time and money.

1 out of 5 eggsjunk/skip

Pros: I like how it looks.
ftp server.

Cons: It has low range. I live in a tiny one bedroom apartment and my laptops signal drops all the time or it is ultra slow. This router is right behind the wall in the other room (13 ft away). In the kitchen i have no signal at all. It was intolerable, I had to put back my old router which I bought for 20 bucks in 2008, which doesn't have this problem. I thought I was upgrading, but this is a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: It is certainly not worth $29 when my $20 cheap 5 year old router outperforms it, and absolutely not worth it's full price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Bargain

Pros: -Easy setup
-Guest Access
-Good Signal

Cons: -Included ethernet cable was bad

Other Thoughts: Other than the ethernet cable being DOA causing a delay in setup, everything else was a cinch! Highly recommended!
