3 out of 5 eggs Amazingly... So far.. So good 07/12/2010

This review is from: Linksys WRT120N Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 150Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros:

CHEAP. After reading numerous scathing reviews, the original owner actually GAVE this device to me. Firmware upgrade a snap. Setting up WEP security through the Linksys utility was easy.

Cons:

The router does run hot to the touch. I have the router raised up a bit as the extra height is provided by four added rubber feet so that more air can pass easily underneath the unit for ventilation. Perhaps heat is the cause of all the earlier negative reviews?

Other Thoughts:

The prior owner of my WRT120N reported NOTHING but trouble with this router. I reset the device to factory defaults/original firmware Version 1.0.01 using the reset button. I had no problem downloading the bin file for the newest firmware from October of last year... 2009. Firmware Version 1.0.04. Upgrading using the Linksys firmware upgrade utility went easily.
There are reports that this latest firmware doesn't support typical "N" router speeds. "G" speeds at best. I've never measured the wireless speed after the firmware upgrade. I running for a week now with the new firmware. All four wired devices are connecting. My iPhone 4G would not connect using the default wireless Auto Channel 6 setting. So I changed the broadcast channel to Channel 1 and the iPhone connects.
I was really prepared to slam this device with a one star review. However, so far I have nothing to complain about. Still, after all the bad reviews I'll not likely be buying another one of these.
