1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 6 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linksys by Cisco WAG120N Wireless-N Modem Router - 150 mbps (for ADSL / telephone line connections i.e BT Broadband) (Electronics)
Sorry to say purchasing this item was an awful experience.

I previously had a Netgear g-wireless router and decided to "upgrade" to an n-wireless one to benefit from better signal, and, more importantly, range. So I bought this and a Cisco n-wireless client adaptor for my PC. I chose Cisco as we have Cisco industrial-strength kit at work so thought I'd go for what I thought is the best in its field. Boy, was I wrong.

Signal strength has gone from 4 bars on my g-wireless to 1-2 on this and the router is just 4 metres away in the next room. Only when I place the router adjacent to the PC do I get a full 5-bar signal. The ports don't work either. Got the latest firmware but no good. Changed the wireless settings to those recommended on various websites to no avail. Researched elsewhere on the web and found the WAG120N is notorious for poor signal range and strength so I've bought a known dud.

Ironic that I can see 4 other wireless networks throughout the neighbourhood at 2-3 bars but I can't get a decent signal off a Cisco n-wireless modem router in the next room in my own home! I've spent over 30 years in IT and have never seen an alleged advancement in technology actually be such a significant jump back.

Amazon's outstanding returns service invoked to see the back of it.
