"Good Router EXCEPT. Parental Controls Don't WORK AT AL"2.0 starson by ronandlane
Pros: Easy Connect. Good Range. Trouble Free EXCEPT FOR NON FUNCTIONING PARENTAL CONTROL FEATURE.
Cons: Parental Controls are a total joke. They do not work at all. I contacted tier 2 tech support at Linksys who were totally useless on this issue. ALl they try and do is try and sell me the next generation E3000. Typical of Cisco
Summary: At first I called Linksys re: Parental COntrols failing to work. Went through 2 hours of troubleshooting including firmware upgrade. NO LUCK. They finally agreed to send me a new router claiming the old one was faulty. The new one arrived yesterday. Guess What? Parental Controls do not work at all. I read the forum pages on this issue. One personal called the parental controls "3rd World" Parental Controls. Very accurrate assessment.
Shame on Cisco for failing to correct this very imporant function which can help up deny access to the internet to our teens who need to be cracking the books not cracking facebook at 2AM on a school night.
Wake Up Cisco, you are sound asleep in this department.
