Double your network bandwidth with simultaneous dual-band N (2.4 and 5 GHz). The dual-band feature is designed to avoid interference and optimise throughput for smoother and faster HD video streaming, file transfers, and wireless gaming. Keep Wi-Fi freeloaders and Internet threats at bay with WPA2 encryption and SPI firewall to help keep your network protected.

Use the four Gigabit Ethernet (10/100/1000) ports for quick file sharing (up to 10× faster than standard Ethernet) between other Gigabit-enabled devices such as servers. Connect computers, printers, scanners, and more to your wireless network and the Internet. Quailty of Service (QoS) traffic prioritisation technology delivers maximum speed and performance so you can enjoy fast downloads and reliable VoIP.

The supplied Cisco Connect software helps you customise your settings and quickly add multiple devices to your network. You can even create and manage a separate, password-protected network for guests, and limit access time and websites with parental controls.

So, the router was relatively easy to set up, even on Orange, with a few minor hiccups but once online everything appeared in order. Unfortunately after a few days I had problems with an Ethernet connection to my Dell.

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.

A very disappointing product...

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.

Very nice router, great features.

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

not really good.
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.

No problems in the setup and range.
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.

This is an easy piece of hardware to connect but is slow to to connect to wireless devices. The internal anntena restricts connections. Several re-boots were necessary because of loss of 'admin page'. Very unstable indeed! Most importantly, you need a modem with this router. Power consumption is also quite high. 10watt usage which could be much lower.

All in all, I would not recommend buying this router.

Just purchased one of these, so if my impression changes, I'll update the review appropriately.

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.

I bought one of these routers, along with a Linksys WES160N wireless bridge, to replace the cobbled together bridge solution that I've been using for the past two years (using a couple of off brand access points and DD-WRT firmware) I'd been having problems with overall through put, and figured that adding the 5.0Ghz band should help, by using the less congested airspace to handle the bridge link, rather than using 2.4Ghz band for both the bridge and WLAN traffic.

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 :-(
