Firstly I'd like people to know I'm a very technical guy and have been working with all kinds of home and business networks, firewalls, wireless, ADSL and ISDN devices for years.
I bought the EA4500
a) because of the two separate Receiver / transmit modules so you can use both 5GHz and 2.4GHz at the same time.
b) the promise of Cisco Connect Cloud - and the proposed ability to integrate into home devices. I'm keen to manage my home as a virtual device pool, the PC's, iDevices, Denon 3310, Media Centre etc
c) strong security
d) expected high freatures - inbound rules, port forwarding etc
e) ability to remote RDP from the internet to my personal PC.
f) the USB NAS server - so I can turn off my Media PC most of the time
This has been a horid experience so far. What I knew through working with devices before has needed to be reconsidered because of the terminology and lack of forethought by Linksys - sorry, I should say Cisco.
The wireless works okay, not as well as I'd expect, probably a third of the speed. Good reception, doesn't drop, but not that fast - I've tried the iPad2, Samsung PC, Dell PC, iPhone - all stable but slow wireless
GB networking works well - consistent high speed. Hurrah!
Cisco online support - I've realy needed them. Their knowledge is limited.
The NAS server works but is pretty flakey. Set it to scan Music for DNLA and it misses files and directories out. Sometimes I've needed to unplug and replug my external Seagate 2TB drive for it to be recognised. When it's scanning the external drive the overall router performance is poor - yet I thought the 1.2GHz processor was supposed to have fixed that over the EA4200?Read more ›
But I'm sending it back after discovering this router has a built in limit of 8000 files that it can deal with on the media server.
For example, I have a 1TB hard drive with music and photos that I want to be shared across the home network. Unfortunately, the TwonkyMedia used on its media server only reads the first 8000 files.
There is, so far, no way to get around this. Get another router.
Without doing any further research I took a gamble and bought one. The software on the disc was useless to me, none of it was compatible with my OS, however the PDF user guide alluded to the trusty old web interface still being around, so I tapped in the default IP address and I was hit with a page directing me towards installing and using the Cisco software... however at the bottom of the page I found a small link asking me if I wanted to continue unsecured (or something of that nature), clicking that, then clicking OK/Continue on the next warning message box brought up the login interface I was used to, and using the usual default Linksys username/password combo got me in to the configuration interface I know well.
15 minutes from opening the box my old router was replaced and the new one was configured exactly how I liked it.
TL;DR: It is possible to use the old web configuration interface, just look for the 'unsecure' link at the bottom of page (at 192.168.1.1) you see at the device's very first boot up.
Firmware version: 2.0.36 build 126507
Anyway, unlike my Netgear, this is a router only. It does mean keeping a separate modem, but that suits me as I'm using a Billion 7402nx that has a higher sync rate with my ADSL service than the Netgear (or any other modem I've used) and has a 3G fall back option. Connected to the EA4500, I was able to set up the 2.4 and 5GHz networks in seconds and get online with no problems. I also have the advantage of being able to run a longer Ethernet cable from the Billion to the Linksys, to position it in a better location.
From this week, the firmware has been updated to support Cisco Connect Cloud, which means you can now access and control the router from the web - and that means you can access the router from anywhere. The app for iPhone and Android is now accompanied by six apps that let you do other things, like manage media, bar sites and services from simple menus (e.g. block Facebook at certain times, or Netflix), view IP cameras remotely and much more.Read more ›
