Pros Nice black and blue color which is what I felt like after hours and hours of phone support
Cons Technical support was fair to midland. They continued to try and then pawned it off on Dell's problem. Dell said: "sorry" we don't support it; Linksys then went through same old blame-game routine.
Summary Sorry, Linksys. You blew this one, but I'll give you a "3" Poor rating for trying. I thought that I would buy "up" for a wireless router that said it was backward compatible with B & G WiFi devices. It's not. No matter what we tried, it would not allow my practically brand new Dell Inspiron 6000 built-in WiFi card to read the Linksys WRT300N router. I wasted hours on end trying to get on-line with a wireless connection only to have Linksys try to blame it on Dell.
If Linksys comes out with a brand new product that is supposed to be backwards compatible, you would think that they would contact major manufacturers like Dell to make sure their product is compatible. Nope. They would rather make the customer the guinea pig and pay the consequences if it is not compatible.
Pros speed, when it works
Cons wireless is worthless
Summary Wish I would have seen the first opinion before I went out and bought this. Wireless is very unstable and it is nearly impossible to keep a connection alive even with a 100% signal within 3 feet (using their WPC300N). Even my PPC couldn't maintain a connection. My old BEFW11S4 blows this router away. Back to the drawing board for Linksys, and back to the store for me. (BTW, as of this writing, no major stores have them on the shelves yet but they do have them available online). I just hope they are prepared for all the returns.
"Linksys product"on by stsniper
Pros The router operate as per others
Cons Generally, Linksys after sale service is suck! Usage I would say is same as normal router. Once spoilt you can forget of getting it repair or replace. Conclusion, don't ever buy their product....!
Summary Generally, Linksys after sale service is suck! Bought a Linksys router a year ago. Now it is spoiled as the DSL and internet light is down. SingTel staff came to my place to check on the line and they are working perfectly fine. Called up Linksys hot line for 5 times and each time spent 45 mins to go tru the trouble shooting till now, the technical staff still refuse to admit the product is spoilt.
When I plucked in speedtouch modem, the internet is working fine. Once I change the modem to Linksys router the DSL and internet line are down. It is a no brainer kind of indication that Linksys router is spoilt. But after going tru 5 times of pain going tru the trouble shooting and each time spent at least 45 mins on the phone, it is as good as making life difficult for user to get it repair or replace.
Usage wise I would say is same as normal router. Once spoilt you can forget of getting it repair or replace. It is a pain to call the hot line and do the unnecessary steps yet no result. Conclusion, don't ever buy their product....!
Pros Everything is Great, Not had a problem in 3 Years
Cons None, it has been very reliable handling three wired and two or three wireless connections most of the week
Summary I would agree with some that the range isn't 8 or 10 times greater than a G but it gave me more than previous Linksys G and Dlink G routers and the extra range was enough for me to pick up wireless on the third floor when my router is in the basement.
"Dont bother"on by demisecco
Pros Erm... none
Cons The range is extremely poor. The promises are false. I upgraded from an old Linksys router to this one. Very disappioned to the extent its going back and I will upgrade my network by going back to the old WAG54G
Summary Range very poor and network keeps dropping out over distance.
