Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Highly configurable. Doesn't lock up. No antennae sticking out of the back and yet has better range than any router I tried that did.

Cons: The interface is barely changed from the 10-year old workhorse, the WRT-54G. It's a little low-tech. At the end of the day I guess it's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I have been using a D-Link Gamerlounge 4300 for like 6 years now. Fond memories even if I did have to reboot it once or twice a week. I decided to upgrade to Wireless N, so I tried the D-Link 4500... it locked up daily. I tried that Edimax junk that has the "best rating" on Newegg but it locked up HOURLY. This little powerhouse is the first one I haven't had to babysit. If I have to pay 3 figures for the pleasure then so be it.

Pros: It's light, so when you throw it you won't really damage anything except the router itself.

Cons: Hard locks every 2 hours or so; the iQoS config page was not functioning; showed up with one of the antenna sockets loose, such that when you tightened the antenna it would spin the socket on the board.

Other Thoughts: I'm trying to replace a 5 year old D-Link 4200 so I can upgrade to Wireless N. So far I can't find a wireless router that is even acceptible. I don't understand how it's possible.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: At first it was very fast.

Cons: Hard locked multiple times a day. No DHCP, no config page, no wifi, no routing no how. Not in a hot location, not handling a large amount of traffic, no reason the performance should be this poor.

Other Thoughts: I got this to upgrade from the previous gen "Gamerfuel" router (4200?) because it was locking up once a day. Well I used the 4500 for a week and put the old one back, because locking up once a day was an improvement.
