Pros Easy to install, decent range for the money, no problems what so ever.
Cons Had to go through Cisco connect before being able to make any changes to IP address, dhcp settings, etc. Once you go through the setup your SSID and wireless password are your router logins instead of the usual admin, password combo.
Summary I have purchased a half dozen of these routers for various jobs in the last few weeks and I have had nothing but good experiences with all of them. Even though I like doing my setup manually, the Cisco connect software was very straight forward and I was able to be on the internet in minutes.

Pros dualband n wifi
Cons makes my modems internet and activity lights shut off and then when I connect the modem directly to the computer, i can get online.
Pros Superb easy to install;
Guest login is great if your place party a lot;
Cheap dual band;
Cons Have to setup with CD;(web login not going to rdy till you finished w/ setup through the CD)
Short distance compare to wrt160n and better in old version;
Summary Upgrade this router from wrt160n for my gf because of the facebook app issue, this is mine 6th linksys routers and it works great compared to wrt160n and wrt300n.
Installation is easy, you have to start with the CD, only take you 5 mins to complete.
Only cons. for me is it has shorter connecting distance compare to wrt160ns, so distance 160n got 3-4 bars but E2500 only have 1-2, but the loading speed is slightly better.
My gf used it almost a week, and it work smooth and stable, strongly recommand it for home and small business user.
*E2500 already an upgrade from E2000, what I heard from the sale in computer store, he said this version already removed most of the bugs from E2000.
Pros super easy installation,cheap,and doesn't loose signal
Cons none so far
Summary I previously had a netgear router which was pure junk. I threw that away and got this cisco router which is a thousand times easier to install, and doesn't drop the signal like the netgear one did. I got this working within 5 minutes, while that other junk would take me like 15 minutes if it ever worked right(which it never did). I'm a happy camper now. No more frustration.
Pros Not too expensive for performance. It didn't come with a huge, complicated manual for set up. Just one CD that you pop in, and it tells you what to do so simply, a monkey could set it up. I thought I was gonna have to mess with a lot of difficult wireless
Cons No indicator lights on the front/top to ensure signal is coming through(they are on the back). Reset button is also in back. Nothing else.
Summary We bought this at Walmart, brought it home, and had wireless set up almost instantly. The process was very easy. I am especially a fan of the option to allow "Guests" use the signal with a password that allows only internet access, but not full network access to other computers, etc. As well, at any time you can simply open up the program installed to change/remove the password, change parental control settings, add a device, and other advanced options. As a side note, I was so impressed with this that I decided to search online for a product review site to express my satisfaction by leaving a review(which I never do). A Google search of 'product reviews brought me to Cnet, who happened to have a Linksys E4200 promoted review on the front page of the Networking & Wi-Fi section. I guess I made the right choice.
