I'm a first time Linksys buyer. I was hopeful that this particular router would suit my needs. I'm running 6 laptops, 3 ps3s, 2 ipod touchs, and one desktop.The previous router i owned (Dlink extreme N) had lag and dropped signals issues. I guess the Extreme N stands for NO SIGNAL because every hour or so it would boot us offline, then we had to unplug it, Frustrating! Now, I purchase this router for my family and VIOLA!, everything is running perfectly, no lagging, no drop signal. It's so simple to setup, pop the cd in and go, then use a flash drive to save the setup( it gives you the option to do this) plug the usb drive in your laptops and click your done!, that simple.. I have owned this router for about 2 months now and everything stays connected! Best router, best purchase, hands down. If you have this many devices hooked up like me, then this is the router for you! Go get it now!
I have to say that I have never had a problem with linksys routers and this one was so easy to install if you just follow the cd there is no problem.. It does it all the work for you.. I highly recommend buying this one.
i bought this to replace an older Linksys WRT110 802.11 G router which was great and is still working just to slow for streaming and things like that(because of it being G and not N) and right away i could download and stream HD movies in half the time it took my other router.
another reason i bought this was the USB port which was an added bonus that i used to attach a seagate hard drive to and in five minutes i had a way to get all of the stuff in it on many computers. the best thing about the hard drive is that it was seamlessly integrated with windows 7, i just went to my computer and clicked map network drive and then after i finished the wizard there it was in my computer just as any other hard drive or flash drive. this was different than some routers that i looked at which required programs or were only on the internet and were hard to copy items from the hard drive to the computer
The Linksys E3200 is a wonderful router. I got it setup in no time. The media share for a external USB drive is great. No more having to plug in the external drive into each computer for each user. So far, I have used to external drive at the same time on 2 computers and the speed is great. Especially watching videos stored on the drive.
The guest network is great. We have 2 cell phones, 1 blue ray, direct tv and a Wii connected to the Linksys and the speeds are fast. It works best with a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem. I can't say about DSL.
Overall, EXCELLENT product.
Dual band is very useful. I had a difficult time setting it up mainly due to my ISP , but the Cisco people were extremely helpful in assisting me in the setup process. I purchased the router to upgrade my existing Linksys SR300 model to get the higher speed and range. The speed was defininely an improvement, but I'm not sure I'm getting that much more range. I would still recommend this router for wireless video transmission.
Great router and great Price! I have 2 wireless laptops a desktop computer and the ability to play Wii or watch netflix on my HD TV via internet. This is all because of my new router. I also setup my printer to allow wireless printing! It's been really great! I can upload or download data from the Web much faster and watch movies with no stalling or locking up! The router is very easy to install, just pop in the CD and it pretty much does everything for you!! I would definately recommend this product to anyone who has several devices in their home and need the ability to surf the Web without sucking all the life out of your modem!
It's a decent router for several PCs Laptops and or Xbox Live. Although there are by far better routers out there. It's very easy installation for a beginner at networking although the Cisco Connect program did slow down my connection so I recommend doing a manual setup.
This router was extremely simple to setup; simply plug in the power and either download the setup files from Linksys (this is the best way to insure you have the latest software/drivers) or use the provided CD. There was no need to plug in the ethernet cable into the computer; simply plug the cable into the broadband connection (cable/dsl modem) and go. I set up the router using my Mac, but could just have easily done this using my PC.
The router includes a USB port for connecting either a printer (one that isn't wireless capable) or an external harddrive which can then be shared on the network and used for remote backups or simply sharing media with your home. Parental controls are also included, however, I have no need to parent myself so I cannot review that particular feature. The router includes guest access (if you choose to activate it) so that when friends visit they can have access to the internet, but not your network and you can easily change the password later.
Sharing large media files between computer(s) and other devices (iPhone, Apple TV, etc) was fast and thanks to dual band (essentially two routers broadcasting on different frequencies) all my electronics can operate at their best. I did not give an "excellent" rating to value, as this router is a little on the pricey side and I am sure that you can easily find a cheaper router, although it probably will not be as user friendly.
Overall a great buy!
It was easy to set up and works great with the electronics we got it for. You can't go wrong purchasing this product.
My previous router was a bit of pain, lots of drop outs for mulitple devices, hard to set up a wireless printer, not so with this model. It streams better to the PS3 for Netflix and setting up the printer was a breeze. Its slim design makes it look nice as it sits out in the living room vor others to see.
Had it for two weeks, and I haven't had to reset it one time. the one it replaced would hang up all the time and just didn't work. I've had pretty good luck with linksys. It does run a little warm, but no problems yet, we'll see how it does in the long run.
The first one had to be returned within 24 hrs because it overheated and stopped working. The replacement seems to work fine within the range of 25 ft that I'm using it. At least it didn't start a fire.
Solid product, easy to setup and easy to lock down. Excellent coverage!!
Great router, easy to set up.
Not too hard to install but I needed help because I could not install the latest updates which the cd installation said was necessary. It works great!
This router was very easy to install. with the software, it practically installed itself.
You can't go wrong with Cisco. I love it.
I was not able to use the Cisco Connect disk. I was told my computer needed to be upgraded (Mtn. Lion) I had to download the set up from Cisco website.
Would not install on my iMac computer. The Live Chat person was clueless as how to set up a wireless router. Was given the Tech Support number that was in the Philippines, with co-workers having a party and singing in the background. After 25 minutes, we finally got my desktop to work. Now, this morning, I cannot text on my iPhone, my iPad, iTouch nor my laptop will connect. I re-connected my old router ( a different brand ) and everything works... This one is going back... OH and when I called Tech Support, I was told that the Serial Number was out of Free support. Free support is for 90 days from purchase not how long it has been in the store right...?
