The connection kept dropping out. On the plus side the wireless connection appeared more robust. The connection to a self-built gaming computer seemed ok, so fault might be with the Dell laptop. I don't have this problem with the ISP box.
To give it a good work out I wired in two computers and had an iPad, iPhone and iPod all on the go at the same time. It appeared to hold its own.
Then I hit a problem. The only room in my house that I can find a bit of solace, peace and personal space without having children running around my feet is the en-suite bathroom. I can hide away with my iPad and read or watch the BBC News to my hearts content.
Until, that is I ran the internet through this particular box. The old generic ISP supplied box had its occasional foibles but never let me down with a signal. This one did. I have no idea why the signal drops out so easily as it is was put in the same position as the other one.
Overall, it runs at a speed on a par with my ISP box, no faster and no slower. I do miss being able to attach a storage hard drive to the router, there is no USB socket on this one. Spend a bit more and you will get a more versatile box with USB.
I do have a concern. Not long ago Cisco updated the firmware on another of my routers (EA4500) whereby instead of having full administrator control over the router I was suddenly obliged to connect to the Admin controls through Cisco Cloud.
In other words, to change settings I had to go through the Cisco servers and sign up to an account.Read more ›
Works as a Wifi router at 2.4Ghz, but any attempt to connect at 5.0GHz (with a smartphone or laptop) results in a loss of internet connection after a few seconds...
Some people have tried flashing dd-wrt to improve on the default firmware (bloatware), but this isn't a great solution as, after a few reboots, the Linksys firmware comes back.
While price was low (sub twenty pounds) when I purchased it, it's hardly better than the routers which ISPs give away for free with new installations.
In the 6 months I've had it, I've only had one issue with it. It stopped broadcasting the 5Ghz wifi once. Quick reboot then all was better.
Linksys/Cisco are definitely the way to go for routers
the wifi range is not great, since the two antennas are not amplified.
It would work ok with both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands together, but unfortunately the router gets overheated when using both and the 5GHz band disappear after a couple of hours.
I disabled the cloud operation immediately. Why should I go trough the internet to configure my local router???
what if I don't have an internet connection???
unfortunately DD-WRT is still not available.
I would definitely not buy router again.
UPDATE: I've replaced it with an asus TR-N66U, that is so much better! another planet! the user interface is also great. do not buy this linksys router.
Performs equally to the BT home hub 5 I had.
Reading some reviews I thought I had to sign up to a Cisco account to use it , but no.. It's perfect as a stand alone unit.
All in all, I would not recommend buying this router.
So far, quite impressed. It replaces a Netgear JNR3210, which simply could not handle the traffic I threw at it (two torrent clients and a couple of skype clients simultaneously with several standard webbrowsing clients).
This one handles the job far more gracefully without significant lagspikes, and no dropped packets or reboots due to overflowing routing tables.
Aesthetics are simple and appealing.
Setup is very simple, just using your webbrowser and youre up and running 2 minutes later.
Advanced abilities are a bit lacking, but if thats what youre after, youre better served by a different price-class router.
Unfortunately when I connected this router to my cable modem (which is 100Mbps Down/10Mbps Up), my link speed was being capped at 20Mbps/5Mbps. I called Linksys support and they were unable to resolve the issue. Very unsatisfied - I can understand why Cisco are looking to sell this sinking ship :-(
