Very good performance and super easy setup... improve the strength of internet . Recommend this product for everyone. take it and go!!!
I have been using this router for the past week while I wait for my Asus router to arrive so I picked up whatever I thought would be decent performing while also being cost effective. So I picked up the E2700 because it offers simultaneous dual band functionality and gigabit ports for a great price, and I think it performs very well for the money. Not sure what some others are talking about but I found this router EXTREMELY easy to setup and install. The whole process took about 5 mins. The mobile Smart Wifi app is also really useful and easy to use if you need to make changes to the network settings. The performance is very good for a router in this price range. It allowed my maximum download/upload speeds to be achieved (30 Mbps down/5 Mbps up) without any issues. Very stable connections so far, haven't dropped once yet. My only issue so far is that the range could be a bit better and the lack of USB ports. I have a medium sized home and I get a strong signal everywhere, except when going outside. But that's to be expected with a most sub $100 wireless routers. I get roughly 2/3rds of my available bandwidth which is still very good, especially for a router in this price range. However the only reason I say it's an issue is because my ASUS router had exceptional range even outdoors and I'm now spoiled by that. But even if this router is used in a much larger home, I cannot see the indoor range being a problem. The lack of USB means no network storage or wireless printer options. On the other hand, this router offers pretty much every other feature commonly found on more expensive routers ($100+). This includes true dual band, 4 Gigabit LAN ports, bandwidth prioritization for media, device allowance/blockage, guest access, every possible security feature, and even remote access to settings via smartphones. All while being super easy to use.
Now I'll make it clear that I do not work for, or push Linksys towards people, as my routers of choice come from another company. But this was a great substitute and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a feature packed, easy to use, cost effective, and most importantly, reliable wireless router. It may not have EVERY feature such as the USB ports or the highest possible speeds like on the new AC routers, but for this price, it's pretty darn amazing.
Not to easy to set up and 14 months after, it went dead, go figure. Never again
Power and power light goes dead after about a year. No luck resetting either.
I bought this to replace my old Belkin.... What a difference. I put in the cd and followed along step by step. I think it took all of 10 minutes from start to finish and I was back on line with my laptop, PC, iPad and iPhone . Fantastic
i bought this to replace my d-link DIR-601. this is much faster. the setup was very easy. not sure what these bad reviews were about as i found the CD was easy to understand. wireless browsing is so much faster than my old router. no issues here. wait til long term...
Easy to install, Smart Wi-Fi feature lets you know at all time the connections to the router
Difficult to install...It is not good. I'm taking it back.
Find another router....any router but this one. My 3 year old router works better then this one. Had it for 8 weeks and rebooted 3 times before it finally packed it in. If you happen to get power outages in your area do not buy this, it gets really finicky.
So very easy to install. As I got it on sale, it was great value. Works excellent, as our speed is noticeably faster now.
I had no problem installing this router and it has worked well. It was a good value and I would recommend it.
I bought this router to replace my D-Link WBR-1310 G router. Speed is much quicker and range is better. The install was very easy and quick via the CD. Install was done via wireless no need to plug into the router.
Love the router's C.D. set up wizard you could just use the web bower. One thing I don't like is how you enter the guest password thought the web browser and it doesn't show a lock symbol but it is locked so I just disabled.
I thought this could replace my dead Linksys WRT300N but that was a bad idea. Great "easy setup" feature ended up that I could get it to work at all. I ran the setup program from 3 different computers, wireless or wired, and the program could never see the router. No IP address to talk to the unit directly. My PCs were seeing the wireless signal but even less than 30 feet away, the signal was too weak to be usable anyways. My neighbours' signal is stronger. It's going back to the store today.
Rounter's wireless signal is very weak. Its' signal strenght drop quite a lot when
I'm in the next room. It drop to down to 2 bars when I'm downstair.
I can't stream movies wirelessly to my PS3 because the signal are up and down constantly.
The worst router I've ever owned.
