    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.

    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 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.

    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!
