I ordered the WRT54G2 'refurbished' because I wanted a replacement for my 801.11b Linksys and the refurbished could be had for a significantly lower price and the product was Linksys certified and came with a 90-day warranty. To my surprise - I expected some glitches - I had close to zero problem installing and operating it. Here is my experience.

- I followed the advice to first run the installation off the provided CD.
- Even though all of my computers are wireless, I followed the advice and connected one of my computer to the router via Ethernet to perform the initial installation.
- After disconnecting the old 801.11b router I used the exact same name for the new network. This allowed for all devices to connect immediately, as soon as the setup completed.
- I made sure that the DHCP server was on.
- The end of setup. All devices, including the wireless printer and the VOIP box connected without a problem.

To my surprise, LELA is not on the CD. It took me longer to find, download and install LELA (Linksys EasyLink Advisor) than to complete the initial setup. I strongly recommend that you do install LELA because, besides the nice graphic of your home network it allows you to restore broken connections without having to turn off the router.

As far as performance is concerned, I believe that I notice a slight but not significant improvement over my old 801.11b router. We have about one dozen connected devices: desktops, laptops, a PS3, a PSP, VOIP, printer and, with all on, everything worked just fine. With the router in the basement, I had '3-bars' on a computer 15-20 feet from the router. Surprisingly, I had 3 bars on the first and on the second floor as well and I had the same 3 bars outside, about 90 feet from the router, by the pool.

I've used Linksys for years - this is my first Cisco/Linksys. For whatever reason my signal was unstable using WPA2. It was affecting not only my wireless devices, but also my desktop cabled from router. Had to change back to WEP - all is well. Really understanding Wifi and routers is an art that not many can pull off. LOL

This router worked great out of the box but it's about nine months since I bought it and it's fried. It drops connection constantly now and is pretty unuseable. I have just had to bypass it entirely and connect my cable directly to my computer I now see exactally just how much speed I have been missing. My internet is blindly fast now that this router is disconnected.

You would think that these things would last a little longer than a year or so. I have it plugged in with a surge protector and it is in a safe spot with good ventilation so I don't see why it should be bricked.

If you buy this product it is no longer in warranty so you are SOL when it comes to setup issues. That said - if you are looking strictly for something to connect to a desktop and not wireless this is ok. My desktop with Vista Business had a few issues but I got through setup. If you want to set up the wireless for a laptop (also Vista) be prepared to hunt around on the internet or hire someone. It means installing a bunch of crap on your laptop, if it's a business laptop and you work for someone else, be prepared for a few nasty-grams from your IT department.
