I just bought this router last week and it works terrific. It was very easy to set up. All I had to do is insert the CD and it walked you threw the entire process. It pretty much automatically sets up a secure network for you so you don’t have any intruders on your network. I really like the slim and sleek appearance. I also like that it doesn’t have the antennas like the old school Linksys wireless g router. I have windows vista and have had no problems with connection problems. Also my friends came over to use the internet and they had no problems connecting. My good friend and neighbor lives 3 apartments down from me and he picks the signal up great. If you are looking into splitting internet like we are going to start doing it’s a solid investment. Really good buy I would recommend this to anyone who does not really know much about computers cause of the easy set up.

I bought a Linksys router 4 or 5 years ago that was a real pain to install. I had to spend hours on the phone with a technician I could hardly understand to set it up. I was worried when my mother bought this one for me to set up. I am proud, and mostly relieved, to say that setup was a breeze. I never had to call anyone. I just inserted the disc, followed directions and waited for it to be installed and configured itself. Times have changed for the better. I would highly recommend this, even for non computer geeks like myself.

I will start by saying that after I finally got the router working it has been wonderful. I have my Wii, PS3, and a lap top connected. They all run smooth and fast. The process getting there was frustrating. After installing the router I had internet for a minute at a time and then I had to constantly repair the connection. My problem turned out that I needed a password update for my modem. I went to so many forums for help and finally just started clicking on the "more" links that accompany the settings when you type the linksys ip address into the address bar. You go to the wireless heading and then you choose the advanced wireless settings and on the side there is information and it says there is more so I clicked on that and it gives you the transmission settings and explains reasons for the settings.

I have always loved Linksys products, and this one is no different. It gives 4 ports for Ethernet cables, plus the added availability of wireless. I have got my PC, PS3, and Wii all running off the same broadband connection. Runs flawlessly. I highly recommend it!

In short: if you want to use the wireless get something else. Long Version: Admitedly I did no research before buying. It looked cool and was made by Cisco a very good brand. (normally not an issue with routers) But this turned out to be the worst router I've ever had. 1) I turned on the HTTPS so I could connect to it useing a secure connection, this locked the router. I had to restart it after every time I tried to access it useing HTTPS. Alos Windows does not recognise it's security certificate (never seen that b4). 2) when ever my wife would use the internet over the wireless everything includeing my internet over the cabled connection woud slow down massivly. I went so far as to compleatly deactiave the encryption on the wireless with no change. 3) I was unable to change the sub net to match my old router. (this added 45 min of reconfiguring stuff for work to the setup time) I was pleasently suprised to see it supported QoS, but I never got to test it as the Wirless just killed it's performance.

I didn't have much trouble setting it up. I had a little trouble getting my laptop connected to the internet, but it was probably user error. I'm not much of a computer whiz, but I was able to set up my home wireless network myself. I haven't had any problems with it since I got the laptop to connect.

Manual setup with a bridged Motorola 2210 DSL modem very easy. Medium large house has no wireless reception or speed problems.

UGH, I've had a terrible experience with this product. I had problems with error messages when trying to install the software on my Gateway XP laptop using Roadrunner cable. Then when I finally got it to install, my laptop would only access the internet if the cable was plugged in. Called customer service at CISCO to ask for help resolving that issue and found out I would have to pay them a FEE to get help with changing my computer settings to make this work on my Gateway laptop. Seems like a really bad idea to sell a product but not help the user to get it to work unless you pay them. Obviously a lot of people will just return the product to the store rather than paying the extra fee. That will result in the store issuing a chargeback to CISCO which costs them more than it would if they helped me for free to get their product working.

This is an excellent router in this price range. Installation is extremely simple and fast. If you do have trouble their support page is very helpful and easy to navigate. Also, for Windows 7 installation you may need the latest firmware installed, which is available at this link: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54GS2/download

We just ended our broadband service. We already have cable internet and we found out how easy home networking is to set up. This product is so easy to set up. Laptops not a problem. Just had to buy the USB adapter for the other desktop we have.
