Product Description

With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the router can increase the throughput even more by using twice as much radio band, yielding speeds far faster than standard Wireless-G. But unlike other speed enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable this double-speed mode for Wireless-N devices, while still connecting to other wireless devices at their

A good buy! This arrived promptly from Amazon a day earlier than expected. Its very simple to set up with a cd-rom which walks you throught the set up. I was all set up in about 15mins. I've been able to use PC, PSP, PS3 and iPod Touch through this. It has one of the highest security encryptions available which was a big part of the buy for me.
The only reason that I did not give this 5/5 is that it occasionally times out, so you need to press a button on it and then the connection is restored. This has only happened on PS3 and ipod - never with the PC.
Overall, highly recommended!

My old router, a Belkin G, had started disconnecting every 5-10 minutes so I bought this as a replacement. Set up was very easy, and within 10 minutes everything was working perfectly. I ran into two snags: the first one was when I turned on Network Lock by accident, preventing my sister from being able to connect. Turning it off obviously sorted this instantly. The second was that one of the laptop's I was trying to connect it to wasn't showing up with any wireless networks, which turned out to be a problem with its wireless card. Neither of these were actual defects or problems with the router itself.

The signal seems very stable and snappy compared to my old router. In my room I'm not getting ethernet cable connection speeds but the speed I am getting is decent nontheless. I'm on 20mb broadband, get 14-18mb when connected directly via ethernet cable to my router, and 7-12mb up in my room (the signal has to pass through steel girders so this is to be expected).

The software that comes with the router is excellent and provides a nice hub for configuring your router if you're inexperienced with networking. One feature I don't like is the ability to screenshot other computers on the network that have the software, and even though you can probably disable it, I've only installed the software on my PC for this reason (there's no real need to have it on other PCs that won't be fiddling with the settings).

Overall a solid, stable router that doesn't offer blindingly fast connection speeds but is definitely an improvement over my old Belkin G.

Considering all the reviews and my own opinions of this excellent product:
Positives
- great range and strength of signal throughout my house. I have used other wireless access points before and there were tons of deadspots. With this the LOWEST I get is 75%! Nice
- no timing out of wireless signals and decent throughput of network traffic for my laptop - alomost comparable to wired speeds I am used to.
- fast and easy operation of all features (once configured)
- looks cool - you would WANT to show this off!

Negatives
- loses a star because the configuration is not as straight forward as it could be. It failed for me the first 2 times so I configured it manually (which is easy) using the web interface and the manual. I think this is because the CD installer does not cover all required configuration options eg. disabling the DHCP (network address) server if not needed and I had to do this manually since my ADSL modem already does DHCP. Whilst I know how to do this it's not really a trivial operation for a new user.

Replaced a BT Voyager220 hard-wired router that was a doddle to set up, and gave no problems. It served two x desktops

Bought a laptop so wanted internet access on all three.

I'm not a techie, but I'm not an idiot either. It took me over 4 hours of constant messing about to eventually get all 3 connected.

Linksys ought to learn what a reset button should do. A reset should reset and be reasonably accessible. Theirs is a tiny affair, buried in the casing and the net is awash with adverse comments about its use. Even on Linksys's own forum there is advice about holding it depressed for 30, 40, 50 seconds, then disconnecting the power chord.

Even when it's used it doesn't 'reset' everything to the default delivery conditions.

There are numerous comments about users trying to gain access to the Advanced Settings. To do this you have to enter a User Name & Password. Only the suggested default passwords don't appear to work for everybody. Me included.

The router works, but I can't access those advanced Settings. I'm not alone.

If anyone from Cisco / Linksys reads this, perhaps they would offer advice on both this website & their own forum.

Till then it gets a low rating off me.

I have recently upgraded to the new 50Mb virgin media service and receive a cheap netgear router, i replaced it straight away as most netgear products crash repeatly and the wireless was only G band. This N-router allows much better wireless connections and i have been able to run my xbox 360 using it N-adapter. It has some great feature and is really straight forward to setup, i have found out the DD-WRT custom firmware can be installed and opens new features link VPN and VLANS for advanced usage of the router.

This product is truly amazing. Set-up was easy with the provided LELA software. (Make sure you restart your moderm once connecting the WRT160N). LELA does it all for you, security is tight and at the highest quality. The software maps out your network and is easy to keep track of everything. Now speed is fantastic if using a wireless N adapter, if you only have a G adapter speeds are still fast though. Coverage is were this thing shines, just PERFECT, never drops below 90% and thats even in the garden and out to the road. My advice is buy this before its too late and at such a great price too. (Please any questions dont hesitate to comment)
