Review from PC Mag

Was thinking about this. But there’s no DD-WRT capability, so … no.

About time you offered Linksys. :slight_smile:

I may end up buying one of these, in the future.

Time to check out the product page


Some OK reviews (3 out of 5 eggs) over at


We are running 3 xboxes gaming online, will this be able to handle that load without glinching? or 2 gaming and 1 streaming net flix HD?

Nothing new about this semi-outdated router…I’ll give you mine…

I bought one of these for Christmas last year. I am still using it. I use it with cable. I like it. I like how you can go on the internet and log into your router and make setting adjustment on a new designed page. One you can understand. It has the same setting as if you logged into using the 192.168 thing but it has menus that show you what setting you can change. You can even setup what device has priority over other devices when it comes to signal strength. I have a blue ray/wifi box that is hooked to an HD tv in the kitchen that has to travel over 30 feet through two interior walls, a desktop with wifi in the spare bedroom over 40 feet away, through 4 interior walls and a desktop connected directly to the router. I had all three playing Netflix at the same time without any problem.
I have the router sitting right next to a printer and up behind it is the right front speaker to my desktop.
I shopped around last year and picked out this router and have had no problems with it at all.

A question from the uninformed: Is this “N” router backwards compatible with older “G” and “B” devices?

Yes. In addition, since it’s a dual-band access point, you can connect at both speeds at the same time. Access points that aren’t dual band will force all devices to connect at the speed of the slowest device.

Not a deal.

$57 shipped for factory refurbed directly from Linksys. Looks like there’s even a coupon code for free 2 day shipping.

[MOD EDIT: Linksys website is out of stock]

Router probably yes, it has 6 antennas, dual band, device priority etc. Suspect you’ll run out of bandwidth before you exceed the router capability.

These are good routers. I wouldn’t call this one semi outdated because I don’t think there are very many devices using the wireless AC protocol yet. I’ve had two Motorola cable modems die, but never a single problem with a Linksys router. They make good stuff.

Don’t know about anyone else, but in my wallet $2 is $2.

Go to the Linksys website and try to buy it. It’s not available.

So, I can covertly give a higher priority to my devices over my bandwidth hungry teenagers? Evil laughter!!

I was wondering the same thing, thanks for checking. I have a mix of old G routers/APs and need a better solution.

Yes, N is backwards compatible with A, B, G devices. It just makes the connection slower.
