Works great so far but after reading the reviews, I too purchased this router after my power went out and it fried my other Lynksys router (this model is the newer version of the one I had)....something I will keep in mind if this happens again! I was surprised to learn that so many people lost connectivity with this router after a power outage, because it has proven to be a very reliable wifi router for a smaller suburbian home.

This Router boasts that it can reach 300 mbps. Despite several hours in contact with Linksys Tech Support, the best I squeezed out of it was 52mbps. Given my internet plan, modem & laptop specs, plus location and lack of interference in the area, I should be able to hit 100 easily with this. Tech support had me fiddle with the router settings and several other troubleshooting options, but that appeared to only make it slower. In the end, Tech Support at Linksys suggested that the router was faulty and suggest I get a replacement.

I would have given this 1 star but this router still performed better than the far more expensive Netgear N750 that I replaced it with.

This router gives a good strong signal throughout my house. I haven't had any problems since I purchased the router and it was a good price. I purchased an additional year of support. I was disappointed when I learned Linksys does not offer any additional support after that year unless you purchase another router. However, the app for this product works good and I don't think I would really need additional support.

I bought this router a few years ago after lightning took out the old one and I've got to admit, it holds up brilliantly. We've never had an issue with wifi reception throughout the house. This includes video streaming, gaming, and downloading across a handful of devices. I've yet to have a single issue that I could pinpoint directly toward the router.

Of course the real question here is whether or not my review is relevant to you. So here's my average usage:
Typical device connectivity:
* Three to four smartphones, a Windows Phone, an Android phone, and two iPhones.
* An iPod Touch
* Two Chromecasts
* Three to four laptops
* One Xbox 360 (constantly)
* One Playstation 3 (occasionally)
* One hard wired desktop

Most activity over wifi is video games on an Xbox 360 about two rooms down the hall and occasional video streaming on the laptops with fairly constant smartphone usage across at least two phones simultaneously.

The range of the router is of course going to depend heavily on the kind of building you're in, however we keep the router on second floor of an older three floor building and get great reception throughout the entire house with the exception of an outdoor addition which is not only distant from the router but separated by a brick wall and hard wood. Not bad.

The router instantly connects to all our devices when they're within range, but this is likely the quality of the devices themselves more so than the router. Still, it responds well.

I've not yet had an opportunity to really experiment with the 5GHz band since none of our devices make it immediately appearant that they support it without any issues, but the standard 2.4GHz bandwidth is reliable enough that it doesn't feel like we're missing anything.

All and all it's a decent router for a decent price. I'd recommend it.

Fast and easy installation. I read the reviews prior to purchase, some reviews mentioned problems with the installation. It was pretty much a plug and play for me. I am happy with the product. The sales person at Best Buy said, "He recommended Linksys over other manufacturers, their customers had less complaints or problems."

I am in IT and have used LinkSys routers for over 18 years. This router is NOT up to their former 'standards'. I've gone through 2 of these in 4 months. The first one stopped working altogether 2 months in. Linksys RMA'd it. The new one started dropping connection to cable modem after another 2 months. Sometimes it drops, sometimes it locks up. The frustration with their Tech support and Customer service is not worth this purchase. Endless chats to linksys tech support and customer service are pointless. "Linksys cares" agent: linksys, check cases: 04907440 and 04890714 and ref:_00D306e4T._50080hmxpa:ref and 04492623.

Amazon customers - DO NOT BUY THIS. Linksys will respond with something pointless below. I have spent hours on phone, chat, email, hold, etc... DO NOT BUY THIS.
