5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 7 Nov 2006
I chose one of these as a free replacement for a WAG54G which I had for 2 1/2 yrs before developing a fault - Linksys just told me to send it back and choose one of three other models!

The WAG54G was never great speed/range wise so I was quite happy to get the '200' as a free replacement as it has an 18dbM antennae which gives me signal anywhere in the house/garden and even allows neighbours across the road to share my broadband!

The little stand it comes with allows it to stand virtically (as shown above) which of course means a very small footprint.

The software in this is also much improved over the old '54G' and it also supports WPA as well as WEP.

I think it looks good too - one to proudly display rather than wanting to hide in a cupboard!

Last but certainly not least I have to say that this thing is incredibly stable; I havn't had to reset it since the day I set it up (which, by the way, took about 10mins!) and that was about 10 weeks ago.

All in all I cannot recommend this router highly enough, Linksys kit tends to be regarded as mediocre in the press/internet reviews which I would normally agree with, but this is something else, it shows they really can build an excellent bit of kit when they really want to. Buy one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product - once it's working 17 Jun 2007
The WAG has performed tirelessly once it was set up with my pc properly (running Windows 2000). It seemed to install fine initially, but I subsequently found that connections and downloads from certain sites just could not be made (eg McAfee, Windows Update). After a lot of frustration I contacted the Linksys online help chat facility, and I have to say that their support staff were brilliant (and patient). To cut a long story short it appeared that the firmware needed to be updated (WHY???? - it was brand new out of the box and I've had Windows 2000 for 6 years!!) Further problems then ensued, requiring the router to be configured separately by my laptop (Windows Vista) and my old modem. This was infuriating, not because of any technical difficulty as such, but because the setup was now relying on external hardware which many other people in a similar predicament may well not have available. The other observation made then and subsequently was that it takes forever to reboot and re-establish the DSL and internet connection. If you don't have patience with this then you could be tempted to start switching things off, press reset buttons etc. DON'T for at least 15 minutes (seriously!). By the way, the help person's reset procedure was different to the instruction manual's....

Somehow I've just managed to lose the updated firmware by mistake whilst trying to connect a wireless printer (which didn't work wirelessly) - I don't know how (reset button?) and was only able to connect the laptop and other 2 pcs again after going through the firmware update procedure again, as suggested by another helpful Linksys person, and setting everything up from scratch. The paperwork doesn't mention this drawback if you press reset...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good - once you have got it working 26 April 2007
I bought this as a replacement for a 3Com box that had died after several years service. The 3Com box was a doddle to set up (plug everything in, power up and point my browser at the router's IP address) whereas this one was far from a doddle.

It comes with an installation CD and there are several notes saying to run the CD first which I foolishly did. Do NOT run the CD. Running the CD starts a wizard that takes you through the steps of plugging everything in then tries to do the configuration. The configuration failed because the wizard could not find the router box and it told me that I had not plugged everything in properly.

Also the wizard cannot be cleanly shut down. It does not have a Close button and cannot be shut down by AltF4 or from the Taskbar. I had to use Task Manager to kill it.

The router also comes with an installation booklet that contradicts the installation wizard - the first thing it says to do is to switch off your PC!

Basically the booklet says to plug everything in, power up and point your browser at the router's IP address, which worked - eventually. After the router box had powered up and got to a staedy state (i.e. the correct lights were static green) it took about six attempts for it to respond to my browser.

After that it was plain sailing, the configuration screens were clear and the booklet helpful and the box has worked fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Magically self-deletes configurations 26 Jun 2008
By J. Choo
About once every month the router will magically wipe out all configurations forcing me to reinstall the configurations from a backup file. The router isn't mine, but I've to help my old aunt who has it (a friend of mine has it too, and he has similar problems). Imagine that, at least once a month I've to take a call from her requesting me to come over to fix the blasted router.

At times the wireless portion will fail so she is forced to connect to it via the 10/100 wired port. Only once reinstalling the wireless configuration would it work again. Updating the firmware is difficult too, with it constantly rejecting the firmware file I downloaded from Linksys's own website. Even once I got the latest firmware onto it, it still deletes the configurations once a month.

An utterly useless product (this is her third one). Shame as when it works, it works well. Looking at networking forums it seems that many has experienced similar problems. Avoid at all cost.
