    This is my second Linksys router I bought from Walmart it's just as good as my old WRT54G router I bought 10 years ago, its blazing fast with WiFi and the 5Ghz feature is even faster if you have any devices that can support this feature tho overall the Linksys E2500 is the best router for 360, PS3, Nintendo Wii or laptops on you wireless network. Note the 5Ghz feature isn't supported on 360, PS3 or Nintendo Wii, if you want to use this wireless feature on a laptop you must buy a wireless adapter that supports 5Ghz/2.4Ghz also. Cons The Linksys E2500 router doesn't support Gigabit Ethernet Ports, so if you're looking for a router with Gigabit ports don't buy this product cause you'll be disappointed. Also with this router you can't access or tweak the more Advanced Wireless Settings like the Authentication Type, Basic Rate, Transmission Rate, CTS Protection Mode, Frame Burst, Beacon Interval, DTIM Interval, Fragmentation Threshold, RTS Threshold, AP Isolation and SecureEasySetup they are locked in automatically. Pros Supports 802.11 Wireless B/G/N It's support 5Ghz/2.4Ghz and 10/100 Fast Ethernet Ports for faster internet connections. Also the most Advanced Security Protection, HD Video Steaming Optimization, Speeds Up To 300mbps and 4 MIMO antenna array boosts signal strength for less deadspots.

    My house is not large and I wanted a basic router that didn't cost over $100 for general personal computing needs. The router NOW works as it should with no real issues. It sometimes won't connect if you have to "go through" 2 walls or 2 floors, but this is uncommon. The set up was easy, but I HIGHLY recommend that you always create a "Easy Set Up Key" with a portable flash drive before allowing any other computers in your house to connect with the WiFi. I had problems with my work laptop changing my router passwords without my knowledge. 4 hours later, I was able to resolve the problem. Simply attempting to reinstall the router will not work. The guest account may be tricky to use with older XP laptops: sometimes it will work sometimes it won't. I havn't figured out why, I assume it's a XP issue. Also, the router will not install older XP machines unless you have Microsoft Service Pack 3 successfully installed. It is working well now on my "permanent" home machines after I worked out the bugs.

    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!!!!

    I purchased this router for teaching a class at a business. I called Linksys tech support to verify what I needed to do to setup as a "bridge" to our business network. I was on and off the phone in a few minutes. I set the router up as a bridge in less than 2 minutes. I used the E2500 as a bridge to teach at a dozen people which were accessing our network (wireless). I never had 1 issue with it (even after teaching several classes). To compare, I had also purchased a Belkin N600DB and tried to setup similar (as a bridge). After spending a couple days on it, I still have not figured out how to set the Belkin up as a Bridge. While getting tech support from Belkin, I was ask what the model number of my LAN (local area network) was.... Belkin tech support also told me there was an issue with my "File and Printer" sharing (which was bologna). I was on the phone with 2 different people (for which I could barely understand) from Belkin at least 2-3 hours and I still do NOT have an answer from them how to set the N600DB as a bridge. Ohhhh, buy a linksys and don't go what I went through. This experience has made me an avid Linksys user when it comes to these small devices. The Linksys is very Intuitive, Easy, and Reliable!

    Once it was installed it would search for, download and install updates and repeat the processs over and over and over and over without end in sight. Finally I just selected for updates when the program was next opened and then set my WPA. No problem for 'droids, PCs and other devices to connect with the router after but they would not connect with the internet no matter what. It's incredibly frustrating to see other PCs on the network and not be able to get any internet access. Win7 troubleshooter on one of the remote PCs identified a DNS issue as the cause. Tech support was worthless wasting my time while treating me like an idiot when I clearly stated I needed assistance with a DNS issue that probably was the result of the never ending software upgrade as my attempts to change settings were fruitless. I always had greeat experiences with Linksys but this Edsel is going back to Walmart today for a Netgear router.

    I bought this router to replace an old one I have had awhile. Put in the CD and followed the wizard and it said it was installed correctly, but I could not sign on to the internet. Tried all the fixes it suggested and it still would not connect. Finnally it said to contact their customer service and gave a web address but no phone number. I searched the box but no phone number, and there were no other instructions other than the CD. Since I couldn't connect to the internet I couldn't connect to their customer service so they were useless to me. So I reconnected my old router which still works and returned the new router to Walmart. Seems Linksys ought to give you a phone number since if you need customer service you may be having connection problems.

    Signal transmission has been difficult in my home and after purchasing this there is a distinct improvement over my previous N router which could not provide adequate/reliable signal range and was sensitive to interference (such as someone using a microwave). Since it is dual band, it can perform quite well in mixed mode for connectivity with older G equipped devices. The unit styling is inconspicuous and the LEDs are at the back of the unit and therefore are not a distraction. Basic configuration is made simple with included software, but the typical Linksys firmware interface is fairly straightforward.

    overall amazing. it work 802.11b/g/n and goes 2.4 and 5GHz. one of the biggest things i love about this router, is that even when someone is on wireless, the bandwidth doesnt die. i had the netgear n300 router and everytime jumped on wireless the bandwidth just dropps like a rock

    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!
