    Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 77reviewers.
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by depends on the WIFI card installed in your laptop Yes instruction disc with router is wrong. Must hard connect modem directly to the computer to install the software. Then power off, hard connect router in the middle and then power up modem then router then computer, in that order, for install to work. That's great for desk tops. As far as making a connection with a laptop, Cisco admits to a KNOWN PROBLEM making a wireless connection to any device using an ATHEROS Wireless Card. They two are NOT compatable!!! No where on box or in instructrions is this warning!!! You would have to purchase and install a different Wireles Card in order to get the device to work. CHECK THE MANUFACTURER of the wireless card for any device you intent to hook up to this router BEFORE PURCHASING! I'm now stuck with two 2 year old laptops that will NOT CONNECT Wirelessly to this router without buying, and replacing the internal wireless cards for each!!!! I am not happy about this!!!! 01/23/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5 Works extremely well. Coverage is good--we have a strong signal throughout our two-story house. We didn't need gigabit ethernet interfaces for our wired systems, so, the 10/100 interfaces of the E2500 work fine. Setup was fast and simple. (The only hangup with the setup was on Verizon's side. Apparently, they statically mapped our old router's MAC address to our IP address. It required a phone call to them in order for their DHCP server to be able to configure the Syslink's outside interface w/ a valid IP address.) Overall, a fine product. 08/13/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very good product easy installation I'm a 60+ year old woman. The Linksys 2500 was simple to install and works like a champ. I have 2 wired computers connected and have added 2 smart phones, a printer and a Kindle Fire all through wifi. I have had no problem with operation or connecting any of them. I previously had a Linksys WRT?? which was a wired router. I had used it for several years and it was still operational at the time I replaced it with the 2500. I replaced it to be able to use the Kindle Fire I received as a gift. The network is password protected and is a wonderful convenience when visitors want to use their wifi devices. 03/15/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great for the price Easy to set up and many useful features, such as guest access. The small footprint means is will fit in almost anywhere. Adequate speed signal strength, but somewhat impeaded with intervening walls and distance. 02/03/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by I needed a router that would cover my entire house. The range is exceptional. Installation was very easy. Load the supplied disk, answer some questions walk away and return later and it is all set up.Good price at Walmart. 12/02/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by First 20 minutes I was immediately surprised at how easy it was to set up this router. I was a little concerned after reading reviews of it and other wireless routers. However, the install CD guided me right through the process, very easily, and within about 10 minutes I had installed the router and software, connected to the internet and was in the process of an automatic update of the router software. I took another ten minutes or so to set up my home network (ID, password, etc) and to connect my laptop via the wireless. The most difficult part was navigating the wireless network setup on the laptop itself, but with a bit of clicking around, I managed to get it done. I was able to pull a strong signal (65to90%) out to about 15 yards away in the house, and even at 35% a few rooms away, I could watch youtube videos with no buffering delays. So far, I'm a fan! 06/16/2011
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by E2500 is disappointing - 2.4GHz does not work Does not work 40 or 50 feet away! Great user friendly interface if you are too close to the internet cable and can use their product. But one does not need a wireless router if one is 10 feet away from the cable!If you need to use the dual band, keep away from this product because only the higher frequency works 50 feet away, the 2.4GHz does not. So you are buying a single frequency router touted as a dual frequency router, because one of the two frequencies does not work at all at a short distance. Other routers, including older Linksys routers work well 50 feet away.Almost any other router will be a better buy at about $80. 10/31/2011
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by charges for web assistance Just bought the router about an hour ago. Everything installed fine. The problem is that the wifi is allowing an unsecured guest connection. I tried to get help from Linksys's support web site but I have to pay them $36 dollars first. No Way! If I can't figure it out then Wal Mart is going to get it back and WILL NOT BE BUYING ANYMORE CISCO LINKSYS ELECTRONICS - AND WILL BE ADVERTISEING FOR THEM FOR SURE. 12/26/2011
