3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By P. Millar VINE VOICE on 1 Sep 2012
Having not used wireless for 2 or 3 years someone in the house decided to purchase an android tablet and so I needed to change my existing wired only cable router to a wireless one. Looking around at what was now on offer I was prepared to go for a Belkin until I noticed this Linksys one (or Cisco's home division). The real clincher was that this router is IPv6 ready (so when my ISP finally switches on IPv6 I will be ready).

Using the supplied Cisco Connect software it was installed and up and running within a few minutes. Overall this is a very impressive product (which can't be said for the USB wireless adapter I purchased as well) which has improved the speed of my powerline/homeplug internal LAN and my actual internet connection as well. The android tablet picked the wireless network up straight away and connected without any problems.

The Cisco Conncect software is simple to use and allows you to modify some basic settings but it also lets you access the router via a web interface and there are a plethora of options to play around with (although generally you don't need to touch any of them). Handily it does IPv4 and IPv6 DHCP for your local network, provides an IPv4 firewall (with a rating of 'True Stealth' on ShieldsUP) and IPv6 firewall. The wireless operates on two frequencies 2Ghz and 5Ghz and is compliant with WIFI standards a/b/g/n, but it only supports WPA/WPA2 security so some older wireless adapters may not work with it.

The router being from Cisco (whose routers are supposed to 'route' the internet) I had high expectations for this product and so far have not been disappointed and I hope it will keep the same quality of service for a few years yet.

Edit (31/07/2012): I have now flashed this router with the dd-wrt firmware and using it as a client bridge with my main PC. After some fiddling with the settings I now get consistent speed and range via Wifi. This router is a very versatile and handy bit of kit.

I bought this as my previous wireless router got bricked. I'm using it as a home network to connect 2 laptops / 2 phones. This is an excellent router. The setup took a few minutes and was up and running fine. The setup automatically created a guest network and since I did not want that, I had to later go and disable that. The firmware upgrade is automatic and gives notification if there is a newer firmware available.

The range appears to be good. I've used it at a distance of up to 20 metres with a couple of walls thrown in between and it worked fine. Will definitely recommend this router

I purchased this router for my student accomodation and the streaming purposes which requires dual band high speed (802.11n) wifi.
However, the setup was very fast and it is an excellent router that includes all you need (QoS, port forwarding, IPv6!, firewall, ...).

running my desktop + laptop and our smart tv on this system and being a 72 year old I found it easy to set up and run just by carefully following the instructions . Which is something of an achievement for me!

I was looking for reliable router that would meet my expectations. This is great product. Even though people often report problems with signal coverage I did not experience it. Using it in 5 bedroom house and we have good coverage even in the garden. Highly recommending.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By anita jesson on 5 Jun 2013
It was very easy to set up with the enclosed CD and gives me WiFi all around the house which has brick walls and concrete floors.
It has been faultless after 4 months of use.
My only criticism is that, being a horizontal design as opposed to vertical, it takes up more space on the desk.
It has replaced my previous Belkin N150 which failed regularly and is now consigned to the tip.
