Speeds things up a little for my smart tv, October 11th, 2013
I bought this item so I could stream downloaded movies on my Phillips Smart Tv without interruption. It does serve the purpose, but, I can't turn the bit rate up too much more than I had with a non-wireless n router.

  A reviewer from Pennsylvania
Easy to install, lacks power, September 12th, 2013
Absolutely easy to install with included CD. Disappointed when I found the signal strength was no better than our old router.

  A reviewer from randolph nj
excellent product, August 18th, 2013
Purchase unit direct, which meant a 7 day wait for delivery. Installation and set-up was simple. After 2 weeks of use all is working fine.

Good Router, August 14th, 2013
Its fast enough to make your computer go and the printer is also good with this router..so if u have wireless printer then this is an answer

  D.W. from Las Vegas
SUPER, May 31st, 2013
After researching routers due to a Linksys tech telling me that I needed either a new/updated one.My last router was about 7 years old and just couldn't keep up with my newer computers.The installation(if thats what you want to call it)was extremely easy,even for an amateur like myself.I am very happy with my purchase which was extremely affordable since I took advantage of the refurbished routers.About a year ago I thought that I may also need a new modem however after hooking up the E1500,my modem seems to be responding just fine.By the way, my old router was also a Linksys which I believe I will stay with unless they stop producing such fine equipment.

  A reviewer from ct
Good router, be sure to update firmware, March 10th, 2013
bought this router to replace my old linksys wrt54gs. it did not broadcast a wifi signal. installed the e1500 using the cd and my internet speed was registering 0.8 mbps (bad). a direct connect to the cable modem showed the full 6 mbps. I ckd the firmware on the router (1.0.0.4). Went onto the linksys support site.. saw that a new version was out and updated. The speed is now at 6 mbps. I am happy w/ the purchase. I wish the install would have taken care of the firmware update.

Best internet equipment I own. Very reliable!, November 15th, 2012
I've had many routers and boxes of all sorts of brands. This one is by far the best one I've purchased and it was well worth it to get the Speedboost haven't had an issue with it and don't plan on being a customer for any other company. Thanks for making it so easy to have connection!

  A reviewer from Duncannon, PA
So Easy!!!, July 4th, 2013
As others had noted, this is so easy to set up - put in the disk, follow the brief instructions and IT WORKS! I've not had wireless before and was concerned that there might be problems getting things to connect but all fell into place. And, it does seem a little faster. I'd definitely recommend it; especially to my friends who are low tech, like me!

  A reviewer from Waldron Indiana
Wi-Fi now, May 28th, 2013
We needed Wi-Fi for my wifes smart phone. Now I intend to buy a new lap top. This router works great and for a lot less expense than going thru cable provider.

Minimum Coverage, January 31st, 2013
I've had this router for a while now. Nothing's changed. I purchased the best one & if I walk out of the room it's in, I lose connection. What's wrong?!!

good value, March 15th, 2013
this is a very good router for the price very easy to set up works well i would buy it again thanks

  Barefootmoses from Missouri
Outstanding, March 15th, 2013
From out of the box and into the modem the setup on this was easy. The only thing I do not like is that I have to run the admin utility program every time I wish to make a change. Prior to this linsys router I could just go to an IP address and log in with my credentials. Not a deal breaker though - this works great!

  lebwel from United States
Dependable but..., March 15th, 2013
This router is dependable but I find myself needing to hard reboot it from time to time (once/two weeks). HD streaming over intra/internet is flawless but can't stream with two or more devices. I have not found any problems with it on online gaming (PS3/XB360). Administrative setup pages are easy to navigate. I wish there were activity lights in front. Overall, it does as it's advertised.

  Bmb00d from Sugar Land, TX, USA
Easy, March 15th, 2013
This router has been very nice. We have been using with a MacBook and an iPad. Works great.

  Jimbo from Palm coast fl
Good router. Fits well instructuredwiring box., March 15th, 2013
Comments above but a problem with the direction of the plug. It faces the wrong direction. Check out your older router the wrt series where the plug faces the right direction. Of course I purchased my first wrt router and it broke in about eleven months. Cisco replaced the router with a rebuilt router that also broke in eleven months. I must have been crazy to buy another Cisco router so let's hope it actually lasts a decent period of time.

  smashbashem from Michigan
Reliable router, performs as advertised, March 15th, 2013
Very easy to set up with the software guide. Especially when compared to other routers I have owned. No problems with it at all. Extra features such as connection speed tests are a plus. Only negative I have is that I expected a little faster performance for the price.

  logssvk from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India
good coverage and easy to setup, March 15th, 2013
The device is very easy to setup. The coverage is good even at far distance.

  marc from PA
Easy to setup & works fine, March 15th, 2013
It was easy to set-up and connect several laptops. I expected the dowload speed to be a significant improvement over basic verizon dsl router. Not much of an improvement. Fine but not impressive.

  scdavid1969 from Rock Hill, SC
It is faster and better in some ways, March 15th, 2013
The new router is faster for streaming but it has no external antenna and appears to be not as strong. I have noticed my cell phone disconnecting itself from the router depending on where it is located in the house. The new update may have taken care of this problem.

  gfaircl from Clovis, NM 88101, USA
good, March 15th, 2013
i have had good luck with the Linksys E 1500 wireless router with speedboost. It makes the internet run faster and helps the camera for security to get the signal it needs to make the camera run.

  uashellbell from Texas
Love it!, March 15th, 2013
Pretty easy to set up and we are enjoying a much faster connection!

  Kathysummers from Virginia
Excellant Product, March 15th, 2013

This was so much easier to set up than my old Linksys G-router! I am running 2 PC's, a Laptop, and a wireless printer with no problem.

  MadMaxx from Brooklyn, New York, USA
E1500 Works Amazingly Well!, March 15th, 2013
Got this router to replace my Netgear branded G router. Since upgrading to wireless N and using Linksys/Cisco products exclusively, I noticed dramatic improvements in my network performance. I also purchased the accompanying wireless N adapter and the seamless integration was superb! Setup was a piece of cake! If you want much improved performance and reliability. Linksys/Cisco products are DEFINATELY the way to go bar none!

  MikePC from Honolulu, HI, USA
Exactly as it should be, March 15th, 2013
After owning a Linksys for many years I actually tried another brand first. That turned out bad from the easy setup which wasn't easy or anywhere near quick to losing the internet every 2 to 3 days. Back to the store it went and by any standard the E-1500 seemed too easy. This is a great product at a great price that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Thank you Cisco/Linksys.

  swampfox2011 from Phoenix, AZ
Flawless performance, March 15th, 2013
Had this for 3 months now and except for the ten minutes to set it up I have had zero problems. The operations are clear, the links are solid and the speed is great. I have a 3 computers, a tv, 2 IPods, a printer, and 2 android phones all dependent on the link. Works great even when grandkids are gaming.

  040mike from Colorado, USA

Greatest and Only Router Anyone should own, March 15th, 2013
The only router I will ever use, been using Linksys routers for 10 years and just love the new ones with the new technology as I replace old / worn out units. Keep up the great work in development of technology and the set up for us not so tech braining people.

Secure; Fast; Easy instal, March 15th, 2013
Set this router up the same night after a Linksys router I had for 8 years died on me. Took me less than 1 hour to set up on two laptops and 1 desktop. Works great very easy set-up and it looks good. Speed is great would recommend to everyone.

  muskyman from Illinois
Great product, March 15th, 2013

  Ricky223 from Brooklyn, NY, USA
Perfect, March 15th, 2013
On my old router I'd get connection drops all the time and have to reset it every couple days , I had a tew 652brp v2. With this router I get about 15-20mb download speed on speed Tests,way more than my old router. This router is better in every way, looks, performance, reliability, everything.

Super Easy to Install and Setup, August 3rd, 2013
My cable company gave me a "free" router. However, I was unable to get installed properly over the phone with the cable company. Purchased this router and it took less than 10 minutes to get it up and running. It works fabulous!

At times I feel it's hard wired,cause it is seamless and fast., March 15th, 2013
I have had the linksy for about 4 months now with a dsl connection. I have had trouble with my system from time to time and when I contacted my ISP they would always say it was probably my router. After a few of these calls the techs now say oh I see you have a linksy E-1500. Then they seem to always find a problem somewhere else. I have gotten to where I sort of look foward to having to call the ISP. jim in mo. p.s my laptop and router are 40 feet apart and there is 3 walls in the way. love it. Thx

  Username from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Good product, range dissappointing, March 15th, 2013
This linksys E1500 is very good in terms of multiple devices connecting and disconnecting throughout the day, and it doing so very quickly and efficiently. I have not had to reboot it ever, unlike the belkin I had before. I have had no issues with speed or disconnects to report. However, the range is not as great as I expected. That said, I'm in a large house. So if you are in an apartment or condo or townhouse, you'd be fine. I was just hoping for more...

  camille from River Ridge, La
Good buy, March 15th, 2013
Purchased for my home network, setup in minutes. Speedboost definitely makes a difference, faster than my last wireless N router.

Setup is a breeze, March 15th, 2013
I replaced and old, old Linksys router with this model. Setup was easy, unit works like a charm. I had been having problems getting access to the old router, this one has never failed to hook up immediately.

  oscarwild from Iowa
Super easy, March 15th, 2013
I had previously bought other brands of wireless routers and couldn't get them to work. This was the easiest to set up and use. It only took about 5 minutes to set it up and it was ready to go. I would recommend this to anyone!

  bluamo00 from orlando
Great Upgrade from WRT54g!, March 15th, 2013
My old wrt54g was damaged from moving so I had to purchase a new router. The E1500 caught my eye and I haven't looked back since. Great for the price!

  bmperrin from Missouri, USA
Fast, reliable, and super easy set up, March 15th, 2013
I debated the pros and cons of dual vs single band and gigabit technology. But in the end, I wanted a) the speed of the n standard; b) better range; and c) better reliability. I got all of those. In the 3-4 months I have owned this router, I have never needed to re-boot it. I had to re-boot the old router about twice a week. The range is great, and for every device I have that supports the n standard, there has been a noticeable increase in speed. Videos streamed on NetFlix, for example, are clearly better. I was also very pleased with how easy the setup was. The last router took me several hours to configure, and most of that was guess work. This one was very easy. I had it connected to half a dozen different devices of varying ages, with none of the connections taking more than a few minutes.

  Dwalsh36 from Grimsby, ON, Canada
Excellent, reliable, great range too., March 15th, 2013
An excellent and reliable router, with all the features I look for. The Linksys E1500 wireless-N router with SpeedBoost performs even better than my previous Linksys router. The set-up and configuration are both intuitive and easy to successfully complete. Only one caution I would offer - The main router is automatically secutity-enabled with a WAP2 security key, however a 'Guest' account is also automatically created which is not security enabled.. Make sure you add a security key to the 'Guest' account, or simply delete the 'Guest' account.if not wanted.!

  jkralfs from Iowa, USA
Excellent, March 15th, 2013
Absolutely would buy this product again! Bought a different brand first, ended up taking it back and buying this one! Liked it so much I bought a 2nd one for work!

  MzrysStar from Nebraska, USA
Incredibly easy setup, and has been working great so far., March 15th, 2013
This is my first wireless router, and thus far I am thoroughly happy with it. The setup was incredibly easy, and only took about 15 minutes. Pretty simple steps: Hook the router up to your modem, run the supplied setup disc, choose your network name and password, done! Great product!

  robhirsc from Miramar Beach, FL
Did just what I bought it to do, March 15th, 2013
My old Dlink router was causing my internet to "crash." I contacted Cox Cable and asked them to recommend a router that would solve this problem. They recommended Linksys. Since installing this router, I have had zero problems.

  Bbomber34 from Colorado
Great Product!!!, March 15th, 2013
This is a great router from start/setup through daily use. I had resisted becoming 'wireless' but for several reasons finally made the transition. I installed the router and was back online in less than 5 minutes of opening the box and removing all the contents. I am currently taking college classes on line and needed the security and reliability to be online to attend class, complete and submit homework, and take exams. This router has gone above and beyond my expectations. NO down time, NO reconnections at critical times, and NO hassles. I'd recomment this product to anyone!!!!

  Djmrocks33 from CT
Best router for the money, March 15th, 2013
This was the easiest router to set up right out of the box. I live in an older home and have no problems with my signal, other routers i have tried could not cover my whole house. I even had my internet service provide one and it did not offer wireless through out my home.

I have used many brands of network gear including many different Routers, the Linksys E1500 out preforms all my other equipment.

Fits my need and budget, March 15th, 2013
I am in the process of finding ways to save like everyone so i bought a Roku player for television uses and discovered the network HUB was not going to work for this so, frustrated already I returned the hub and grabbed this Linksys e-1500 because it was on sale that day. Wow my Roku was streaming wireless in 15 minutes or less.You have to link it's code for setup and such, now I could do this in 5 minutes. I just ran a speedtest on this and it was 26 mbps download and 2mbps upload.

Would recommend this product, March 15th, 2013

Excellent product with simple setup, March 15th, 2013
Compared to other brands that I have tried, the Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Router with SpeedBoost was the quickest to set up with no exceptions or special techniques requied to install and use the system. My grandchildren are now very happy to be able to use their computers when they come to visit as I will not allow them to use my main computer. They can surf the web or play games as they desire. The one time I used the on-line chat program to ask a question about the system went very well and the technician was very knowledgeable.

The router has worked flawlessly since installing it. I look for reliability and value and this product has surely met those standards!, March 15th, 2013
I bought this router because I relied on the Cisco name to assure myself that I was getting what I needed in a wireless router. I haven't been disappointed.

This machine set up almost instantly. It's fast and reliable. I have had no problems whatsoever and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Good product for the price, March 15th, 2013
I am not a very technically inclined person, my brother typically sets things up for me- he wasn't available to set up the router for me and I was able to set it up myself in just a few minutes. I have not had any problems with it thus far, I've had the router for 4months. I would recommend this product to friends/family members

I had a very difficult time connecting to my HP J4680 printer...finally gor the printer to work, but have not got the fax feature to work.it worked fine with my previous router, the Linksys G model...

  Doriekaye from Minnesota, USA
Does the job nicely!!, March 15th, 2013
This router is extremely easy to set up and works perfectly. The only complaint I have is that when I turn the power on, it sometimes doesn't start up properly. It is easily fixed by switching the power off and then back on again.

  jboyd222 from Salt Lake City, UT, USA
Quick and easy!!!!, March 15th, 2013
Best wireless router I have ever set up and used. Love the five additional access accounts you can set up. Great device.

We've been using our Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Router for several months, now, and have had absolutely no problems with it., March 15th, 2013
This router was easy and quick to set up. The instructions were clearly written, and the router worked right away for us. I use it for our home network all the time. It is far faster than our last router, which was not wireless. My smart phone connected to it right away with no trouble. I do database programming for small businesses remotely from home, and it's important that I have a reliable and fast Internet connection. The Linksys wireless router has been ideal for this purpose.

Wireless Router Review, March 15th, 2013
This product has been great. We have two laptops and 1 desktop. I also purchased the USB adapter for my desktop to be wireless. The performance and speed has been awesome. We have had no problems.

  Jeanne417 from Florida, USA
Absolutley NO complaints!, March 15th, 2013
I just purchased my router about a month ago ... I needed to have wireless for my laptop and tablet in my home and into my church. It works better than I expected - and I am 100% satisfied. It goes thru 4 concrete walls to still connect in my nearby church. What can I say - but - Thank you!

  pschaller from Macon, GA, USA
Noticeable improvement, March 15th, 2013
I upgraded from a much older Linksys router and noticed the difference immediately. The connections were a bit faster, but most important for my home use is the fact that we weren't continually being dropped from the internet connection. I am not a techie by any means, but this router was easy to install, to secure, and to use.

  billk52 from Cabot, AR
Overall, March 15th, 2013
From day one this was the most simple and easy to use piece of equipment I have installed. It has preformed without any problems and accepts any and all devices I have required it to do. I would indeed buy this again and even upgrade if the need comes up. I endorse this equipment 100% for any computer application you may need!!!

Great value., March 15th, 2013
Good range in our ranch house with the router in an end room. Speed is plenty for our uses. Network Magic is far better than Windows network tools.

Extremely easy to set up. Walks you completely through it. Has great connection and speed and definitely worth the money.

  PoorBruce from Ann Arbor, MI, USA
An excellent router!, March 15th, 2013
The E1500 took mere minutes to set up and begin using, and has been running for me flawlessly. Speed is excellent and I have good signal strength throughout my house. My only criticism is that I wish the web interface could tell me the IP addresses of all connected clients.

  DOUGWOOD1948 from Georgia, USA
GREAT PRODUCT, March 15th, 2013
I've owned a few routers, in the past. This one, by far, was the easiest to set up. All I had to do was plug it in and it did the rest. I've had this one for 3 months and so far it's not given me any problems...

  aamjharvey from michigan
Great product, March 15th, 2013
Bought this as a replacement for a netgear router. It was simple to setup and I was able to hook up all of my pc's and my sons xbox with no problems. The range is far better and the spped to all portions of our house is excellent. I now use network printing which wasn't possible before and is so much more convenient.

Excellent little device, March 15th, 2013

  BobG from Conway, SC
Easy installation and great performance for the price., March 15th, 2013
After a nightmare installation with another wireless router brand several years ago I was apprehensive about installing another router. I was amazed at the how easy the Linksys E1500 was to install. The setup software performed flawlessly and within 10 minutes it was ready to go without any problems. The range and performance exceeded my expectations. This is a great buy.

  tthelen from Hilliard, OH, USA
Another forgettable device from Linksys., March 15th, 2013
As usual, Linksys has created a router that upholds the company's tradition of high quality products. Open the box, hook it up, follow the prompts and then, never think about it again! The other day I had a friend stop by and he used my wifi. He asked what kind of router I used, and I honestly had to think. That's right, I do have a router! It has worked so flawlessly, I had forgotten I had one, but no problem remembering who made it. There's only one I'd ever buy, Linksys!

  marquisgrand from Medford, MA, USA
Filled my needs, March 15th, 2013
Needing to expand my wireless area and being on a budget the E1500 more than filled the void. I install the new router and added my old "N" router to extend the area of coverage to include my outdoor screen house. By far the best value and easy to set up.

  Brogy1717 from London, ON, Canada
Easy to set up, very reliable, and good value., March 15th, 2013
The purpose of this product was simply to obtain wi-fi use in my house and it served its purpose wonderfully. It had very easy to follow instructions and was overall easy to set up. The only slightly more difficult part of setting this up was making sure all the physical connections were in order. As I said this was only slightly more difficult for me but for someone who is not familiar with setting up hardware it would be more difficult. Other than the setup this product performs great, so far no issues at all. I believe this product has good value as it is easy to setup and provides reliable performance. I would recommend this product to anyone wanting home wi-fi.

AWESOME, March 15th, 2013
I have had various other routers. When I upgraded my computer to the 27" iMAC I wanted to upgrade my router as i had been running "G" link for several years. I went to Best Buy and they said for the value/performance/ease of setup and overall rating > buy the Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Am I glad I took their advice. Price was great and the range has at least tripled. Further, I never lose my connection and it is fast fast fast. Thanks to my Linsys E1500 with SpeedBoost D. Lewis Milton Ontario Canada

My Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Router with Speedboost is in my basement and I have two Macs upstairs. I tried two other brands and could not get the reception I get with my Linksys. Never had a drop yet and fires up within seconds. Great price for what I need it to do.

Functional & Efficient!, March 15th, 2013
This recent upgrade to my home system was extremely easy to install. I did not need to know anything about setting up a wireless network in my home as the programming seemed to automatically install itself. I have had it for a few months and have not experienced any operational issues! Speeds are great and a significant improvement over earlier technology.

  ekstevens from North Carolina
Easy to use, March 15th, 2013
Very easy to set up. No worries, I do believe that my DSL is faster. On my lap top while husband is on the desk top without any problems. Better than a hot spot wireless system.

  droderick from West Columbia, TX 77486, USA
Outstanding addition to our home system, March 15th, 2013
I had an older Cisco router that maxed out at 58kb. Though it worked perfectly it just couldn't handle the speed of our new laptops and cable service. I installed the E1500 wireless-N router in July and we've not had so much as a hiccup since then. Cisco has remained consistent in providing an outstanding, efficient and effective product in the E1500-N. I'm not an IT professional though I have used computers since 1979 and understand basic networking. I am a professional accountant, however, and require a high level of consistent service at home and the office. The E1500 is everything it is billed to be and more. It was easier to install than any I've owned so far. it provides flawless service and outstanding security that is very easy to manage. I can't give it high enough marks and I generally don't get too excited about electronics. Great value for the money. Most Highly Recommended. And, yes, I'll back that up by allowing you to give my name as a reference. Oh Yeah, I haven't had a Cisco product fail on my yet.

  bettyd from Chichester New York
Easy set up., March 15th, 2013
It was amazingly easy to set up! I didn't know why my old router kept dropping my connection and a friend advised that it was outdated. I went on line to check the products available. I purchased the Linksys E1500. It was easy to set up and I was thrilled to be on line within minutes after connecting. Besides being attractive it takes up very little space and does not have those ugly "ears" sticking out.

  drgts from Redmond, WA, USA
Great Router, March 15th, 2013
Bought this router to replace a older wireless-G router. Also had to replace my ancient broadband modem. The Linksys was easy to set up right out of the box. Worked immediately once my modem was reconnected with Comcast. Great speed and coverage throughout a 2400 sq ft, 2-floor home. Can run multiple computers without slowing down connection speeds. All-in-all, a great router at a reasonable price. Have had other Linksys products and they last longer than than you need them to, meaning they get outdated before they break down. Can't ask for more than that.

  Roxy from Illinois
Great product!, March 15th, 2013
I am rather computer illiterate when it comes to hardware and installation of software. This router was a snap to setup and use.I purchased this router so my daughter could use her laptop on the web when she visited us. Works great! I think now I am going to purchase a tablet so I can read an ebook or use the internet when my wife is on our desktop pc. I highly recommend this product because the price is reasonable and it delivers what it pronised.

Outstanding value, March 15th, 2013
When we moved into a bigger house, we had to dust off our old router and impress it back into service. Immediately it became clear the old gentleman was not up to the job. Our new house is considerably larger than our old one, with more than 60 feet and three walls separating the modem/router from my wife's laptop where she uses it most. She was getting 1 or 2 bars and half the time the signal was lost entirely. I did not want to move the modem. It was time to upgrade. We shopped around a bit. There was a cheesy router for $29 that promised to deliver service pretty much the same as our old router provided. We moved up the scale. At $59, one router promised greater range. I eyed the $129, dual-pipeline, dual-channel, megaplex, nuclear powered router and was sorely tempted, but in this economy our finances are tighter than we'd like, so I had to come back to Earth a little bit. Then I spied the $79 Linksys E1500 Wireless-N Router with SpeedBoost. It promised extended range, greater security and increased signal performance. It seemed like a good compromise, but I was a little concerned about those three walls through which my signal must travel. To my delight, I got it home, plugged it in and immediately the router settled in and made itself at home. With minimal setup. Nothing a 10-year couldn't handle. My wife could have set it up, though she drops all such chores squarely upon my tech support shoulders. Bottom line: right out of the box, this router delivered 3-5 bars way down at the end of the house, more than 60 feet away, through THREE walls. That's zero line-of-sight. My kindle now connects via WiFi anywhere in the house, on the front or back porches and even out into the yard a ways. I've never tried it out by the mailbox, but by then it's got 3g to connect with anyway. The point is, I was prepared to spend over $100 to get this level of performance for which I paid a bargain $79. I would recommend this router to anybody.

I'm very pleased with my Wireless router, March 15th, 2013
We had a router 3-4 years ago that gave us nothing but trouble so I wasn't too exited to buy another . I am so pleased with the Cisco I am only sorry that I didn't get one sooner...

  Kermoosh from Lodi, NJ, USA
Great product!!!, March 15th, 2013
I spent hours searching on the internet for the best router with the best value. I compared dozens of brands and models and set my eyes on the e1500 router. It was in my price range and had more than enough power needed for my home. My one gripe is that when I bought this router, my operating system OS lion on my mac was not supported by the Linksys setup software. At the time I managed to find another computer, but since then Linksys support has been awesome and released an update including OS Lion for the software. I have been incredibly satisfied with this product and its performance. It has been incredibly reliable, with a simple set up and forget mentality to it, along with great support for those more tech savvy. Would definitely recommend to a friend!

Had to return a router of lesser quality that was just too difficult to set up. This one cost a little more but the quality and ease of set up is well worth the money. Working like a champ from the get-go. Buy one....you'll love it.

Much better than my last router, March 15th, 2013
I bought this router after having enough of the problems of my old router and it's so-called technical support reps. (My old router was a different brand). I set up this Cisco router in about 15 minutes, and I'm just a 40-yr-old mom with basic computer skills. This router's speed and reliability has been quite satisfactory throughout most of my two-story home, with regular use by up to four devices at a time: my desktop computer, an X-box, an iPhone and an iPod.

I am a college student that plans to major in Information Systems, so I already know how to set up a router and home networking system. But it was unbelievable how easy it was to set this router up. And the price was incredible for that amount of speed. Great deal.

This is my second Linksys router. I purchased it to replace an older model that did not fully support a Windows 7 network environment. This new model was extremely easy to set up, and interacts very well and easily with all of my wireless devices. I highly recommend the product.

  ashleytimm from Minneapolis, MN, USA
Best router I've ever owned!, March 15th, 2013
I've owned a number of different wireless routers, and no matter the internet company, they constantly dropped signal. At least once a night, the internet would drop for about a minute (sometimes longer) then finally come back. Since I started using this router, I have had NO issues at all! Not once have I lost connection, not once has my internet "hiccuped". Totally worth the extra money.

I must say it's pointless having a 300mb wireless network when the LAN is only 100mb, considering if you do file sharing and the device in which you are sharing files off of is connected via cable at gigabit.

  David Cross from Yuma, AZ
Well worth the buy, April 27th, 2013
I bought this router over a year ago, and I have to admit, that it is the best product out there. The last router that I owned before this one was a Belkin and it was total junk. This router has made my network virtually non-existent. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that is looking for reliability.
