1 out of 5 eggsYikers!

Pros: Cheap, at least when I bought it.

Cons: Had to use google-4panel for a password.
Forced me to 'join' google screenwise, thus allowing tracking of all household users of the router, which made me feel as if I was not really the owner.

.

Other Thoughts: I flashed a new bios, but don't know if that fixed the 'problem'. I already bought a replacement and don't trust the 'refurb' e4200 enough to even give it away.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage

Pros: Decent signal strength for 2.5ghz

Cons: Everything
5ghz signal only reaches about 2 feet
Forced to log into google screenwise
Default router setting is (google-4panel)
Parental controls default turned on and cant be turned off because the password is not the same as the router password
I have since bought a new router and thrown this one in the garbage where it belongs!

1 out of 5 eggsSold Stolen Merchandise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: When I purchased this refurbished router is was not able to access the wireless settings. I tried several times to use the default password and it failed. I could receive a refund since it was refurbished. I paid all shipping cost to exchange it. The second router would not work either. I after reading other reviews I discovered the default password had been changed to Google. No where in the paperwork that came the router stated the factory password would not work. After several months I began receiving a advisory page from a company called Screenwise Panel reminding me that all websites that I visited were being recorded. I checked and found that is a legitimate company that pays people for allowing them to monitor their web browsing. I that point I thought that my router had been hacked. I called their 800 number and was ask to provide the serial number for the router. That told be that the router was their property and had been reported stolen by one of their clients. I was ask to return it to them at their expense. DON’T TAKE A CHANCE ON REFURBISHED MERCHANDISE.

1 out of 5 eggsWaist Of Time and Money

Pros: NONE.

Cons: I took a chance on a refurbished. The router did not come with an owner’s manual so I had to go on line to find one. I could not sign on to the wireless page. The router would not accept the default password.
After several attempts I requested an RMA. Because it was a refurbished router (that someone else returned it) Newegg would only offer an exchange. The second router did not work either. I’m not sure if the unit I returned was mailed right back to me. I have not been able to use it. Total waist of money.

Other Thoughts: Don't by anything that you can't get a refund on!!!!!!!

1 out of 5 eggsGood once you look at reviews and find login

Pros: I always use Linksys and this works as good as all my other ones. I use them on farms to connect to cow milking robots so its pretty harsh conditions...

Cons: I messed around to 3 hours even talking to tech support for Linksys who told me the router was defective!! All because I couldn't log in and change what I needed. Decided to check reviews on it and bingo found my answer login password is google...really...really... it was necessary to change that?!?!

Other Thoughts: login=admin password=google

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Once you figure out that the refurb manufacturer has changed the firmware default login(!!), the basic wired and wireless functionality works as expected. Disclosure: Not using any of the advanced features, just basic wireless, wired, and guess access. See cons below for information.

Cons: Bless Lacey O.'s review with new "default" login. The purchase of this item was a list of cascading failures, that all could be remedied by small fixes. (Newegg.com, I'm looking at you!)

Don't expect the Linksys connect disk to work out of the box. It won't. Why? Who knows - perhaps because the dumb refurber changes the default login IN THE FIRMWARE.

So, if you follow the Linksys documentation on the CD provided, you'll never be able to login. How to fix? Oh, perhaps a scrap of paper in the shipping box that advises the user of the actual default login! The default login is admin/google, as also noted in Lacey's review.

If you seek technical suppport from the manufacturer, you'll quickly find out that Linksys did not do this refurb. So, why does Newegg list Linksys as the manufacturer? Good question. They need to list the refurb guys, not Linksys. Newegg needs to fix this.

The simplest fix, of course, would be for the refurber to set up the same login defaults as when the unit was new, to match the Linksys documentation.

Other Thoughts: Linksys E4200 refurb (remanufactured) login is username (admin), and password (google). Login IP address while wired is 192.168.1.1.

4 out of 5 eggsgot one that works (finally)

Pros: good speed, dual channel easy to navigate and assign, setup simple once you get one that works (see below).
Full props to Newegg for great return policy and free shipping for nonfunctional devices.

Cons: clunky setup if it does not work out of the box. Cisco CONNECT software was not helpful and seemed to be a distraction more than a help.

Other Thoughts: I had to get 3 of these reconditioned units before I found one that I could work with. I do not know whether it was me, my computer system, or the refurb units that did not work properly. However, the third worked easily.

My problems began when I got the first one and tried to set it up per directions, plugging it in as directed, using the Cisco CONNECT software (misnomer, but so it goes) and then having it fail I thought it would. My modem (Westell 6100G, supplied by Verizon) has the same IP address as the router. My experience with previous Linksys routers is that I had to set it to another IP address so there would be no conflicts. TO the best of my knowledge, the software did nothing to identify or solve that problem (how could it when they had me plug the modem into the router, then connect to the router; immediate conflict). WHen I tried to connect to the router directly it repeatedly rejected the username/password duo. For version 2, it should have been admin/admin, but it did not work for the first or second modems. I worked for hours with both of the first 2 modems, with Cisco on the phone, and couldn't get through to either of them. Newegg was very accommodating and paid for shipping back to them. On my third try, I ignored the software, disabled my wireless computer connection, disabled my spyware and antivirus and firewall, and got a splash screen I had never seen before when I used a wired connection with the router. I was then able to connect easily with the router, change the IP address, then it worked just fine. When it connected with my modem, either the modem or the router changed the router to another IP address, but I was able to access the router using myrouter.local and the new password I had chosen.
Throughput seems much better and once I got the blasted thing working, it worked well.

If you choose this and have to set it up with a modem which uses the same IP address (192.168.1.1) disable everything on a computer, set the router manually to another address ( 192.168.2.1 works fine) then plug it into your modem. Worked well for me.

Cisco seemed clueless as to how to fix this problem. Had to beat it into submission my self. Perhaps the refurbed units were faulty, perhaps they didn't like by basement, don't know. Works just fine now, but I've been beating around with this since late Dec.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Has very good speed increase. I loved the interface. Very easy setup.

Cons: This is my 2nd EA4200 router and neither media server function has worked. The test your router speed function has not worked. Neither would accept my hard drive when I checked the Linksys list of accepted external hard drives to make sure it was compatible. I have had 2 other Linksys routers and the EA4200 has let me down. Even after reading all the reviews and checking different chat rooms for help I could never get the media option running.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless Product

Pros: None, The unit I received did not work and neither did the replacement.

Cons: The unit that I received was defective and did not work. Even the replacement that I received did not work. Next time, I am ordering directly from Linksys. They told me that they would even test a unit for me before shipping.

It was a waste of my time and resources. I hope that I can get my money back...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Router

Pros: Overall, it's a great router with this price. Fast.

Cons: The only complaint about it was the heat. Its bottom part gets hot. I don't know for long run, it's going to be an issue or not.
