I wanted to replace my venerable Linksys WRT54GL Wi-Fi Wireless-G Broadband Router with a newer router, one that was IPv6 capable. After a bit of looking around, I decided on the Linksys N300+/E1700 router.

Because I only use Linux, its setup CD was useless. However, because I only use Linux, it was as easy as pie to set it up! If you're unsure how to do this without a CD, just follow these steps, which will work regardless of your computer's operating system:

------ Begin instructions -----------------
1) plug the router in via its AC adapter

2) connect its Ethernet cable to the "Internet" port on the back
-- connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your modem

3) plug another Ethernet cable [this is temporary] into one of the four ports on the back
-- plug the other end of this cable into your computer

4) fire up a web browser on your computer

5) enter the following in your browser's URL box:
http://192.168.1.1

You should now see the login page for the router. You may need to enter the default username and password, or you may be able to just skip those fields. If you have to enter the info, try skipping the username and put 'admin' as the password. That seems to be the default on a lot of routers.

Once you're in the router's settings, you can set things like wireless security, i.e., a name for your wireless network and a password that must be supplied in order to access it. You can choose various things, such as WEP or WPA security.

It's very unlikely that you're going to need to change any of the default settings, so when in doubt LEAVE THEM AS IS.

Once you have everything configured, you can detach the Ethernet cable from step #3. You'll probably need to reboot both the modem and router now.

You should now be able to connect to your new wi-fi network with your computer.

That's basically it!
------ End instructions -----------------

I'm very pleased with the router in terms of its speed. I recently replaced an older cable modem with a D-Link DCM-301 and now, with the addition of the new router, I'm finally seeing speeds I'm paying for. Nice!

This router is a great choice, especially considering its price. When I bought it, it was ~$50. Quite a bargain.

Router was pretty good for a couple of years, the setup was really straightforward. The lack of external antennas hurt the range / signal strength fpr me it was never as good as advertised,

after a couple of years the router became more unreliable, all my devices on Wifi started dropping out, not just one or two devices but multiple platforms in different parts of the house. But items plugged into the router continued to work great. Power cycling the router seems to resolve the problem.

I have owned many Linksys routers and in general been pretty happy with them, but I am ready to give a different manufacture a go.
