"Router started out solid but ended up possessed"2.0 starson by sj295584
Pros: Fast wired connections
Cons: Port blocking issues and less than savy tech support.
Summary: This router was provided by Vonage as part of a VoIP package. Once connected to the home network, it began blocking port 119 for no apparent reason. I called Linksys support and spent 1.5 hours with them on the phone to troubleshoot the problem. They could not fix it even when they remotely administered the router from the Internet. Their final solution was that they would work out a solution and get back to me. NEVER HAPPENED.
Next, I called Vonage to ask for assistance. They were about to walk me through some exercises when I told them that Linksys could not solve the problem so they will not have much luck. After a little arm twisting, Vonage is now sending another router to replace the possessed one.
