Pros: Its fast and its really easy to configure. I have four laptops connected to it by Wi Fi and they are running fast with my RR connection. Speed at all of them runs 25 to 30 Mb on the download and that is pretty fast, believe me.
Cons: After installing the Cd and going through all the setup , I found out that my connection was slow to my Laptop and I had issues with disconnecting. After calling Linksys Tech support , they walked me thru the settings and I will post them below..
Summary: 1- Log into the setup page for the routerIf you still having problems with connection, just read the post about settings and you will be amazed how it will change the speed and disconnection issue.
2- Click on Wireless tab and select Manual.
3- Change the Channel from Auto to number 9 and Save the Settings.
4- Click on Advanced Wireless Settings and make the following changes:
Beacon Interval - 50 Fragmentation Treshold - 2306 RTS Treshold - 2307 Save the Settings.
5- Click on Administration >> Disable UPnP and Save the Settings.
6- Click on Application and Gaming >> QoS >> Disable WMM Support and Save the Settings.
I have to tell you , after doing this, all the PC'S I have are running fast, no issues with disconnection I even leave my laptop on 24 hours and connection still on unlike before when it use to disconnect every hour or so and I thought it was with my Road Runner Internet service which was not the case. The bottom line is am not a gamer and I use my settings for browsing and working online and this router is great for me and fast when setup right.
