I see quite a few negative reviews here from frustrated customers, but the truth is that this isn't a bad router. I've set these up for plenty of users and they've had no issues. You just need to know what's inside and how to configure it, and as an electrical engineer who specializes in wireless, I can tell you about this.

This router -- unlike most Linksys routers -- uses an Atheros SoC (system-on-chip). (Most Linksys routers use Broadcom chips.) This means that it has some quirks that are peculiar to Atheros. For example, most Atheros-based devices are well known to have what's called the "stuck beacon" problem in their internal software. The problem is not due to overheating, as is speculated in some of the reviews here, but it can be triggered by heavy network loading or noise on the airwaves. Without going into too much technical detail, this is a problem that happens when the router gets busy or encounters noise and misses its chance to send a "beacon" signal advertising its existence. If it doesn't get to send the beacon by the time it's due to send another, it sends out an invalid beacon that doesn't conform to the Wi-Fi standard. This can cause everything on the wireless network to disconnect abruptly.

Atheros should have fixed this problem long ago, but for some reason its developers do not seem to want to admit to the problem. And because Atheros insists upon providing the low-level code that runs the chips only in canned binary form (they call it a "hardware abstraction layer," or HAL) to most equipment manufacturers, and the code is difficult to understand and modify even if you have it, the majority of equipment makers who use Atheros chipsets have been unable to fix this bug themselves.

My advice for trouble-free operation is as follows.

The ratio of success with these units is about 1:5, meaning that for every five that we purchase, only one will function properly. I am an IT Professional and install several residential and commercial wireless systems a month and I have had great success with the previous line of Linksys Wireless Routers (WRT54G's), but these newer Linksys/Cisco Wireless Router must have a design or a component fault. Typical Chinese junk(IMHO). Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE Cisco fan, but I'm very disappointed in this newer line of consumer grade routers now offered by Linksys/Cisco....

Let me preface my review by saying that I'm very computer literate. I stay up to date on hardware, read reviews, fix my friends' computers, and even build desktops for friends. I know how to troubleshoot and fix things when they go wrong. I'm not going to get into all the technical reasons why this router isn't a good one. I'll merely mention my experiences.

That being said, this router is junk. I bought one, set it up and had it work fine for a month or so. Every so often after that first month I'd use my computer at night, go to sleep and wake up the the next morning to find that I wasn't connected to the internet anymore. Odd. I tried resetting it and messing with the settings and would eventually get it to work. I had to do this quite a few times over the course of 3 months until it one day stopped connecting to the internet altogether. I could connect to the internet fine via an ethernet cable and the modem (so the modem and the ethernet cable from the modem were not the problem), but I was unable to connect to the internet with this router. I couldn't connect via wireless or wired connection (using another ethernet cable that I know works) on either of my 2 computers. This means that the modem and ethernet cables were fine, and the problem was not with a wireless card or ethernet port on either of my computers. The problem was the router. Nothing I did could get it to connect.

I returned it and got another one, thinking maybe I got a bad unit. Nope. I exchanged the one I described above about 3 weeks ago. I set up the new one and had it work just fine for these 3 weeks. I woke up this morning to see that I wasn't connected to the internet anymore. I played with the settings, and still couldn't get it to connect.

Unfortunately, I was in the need of a small home router to work on a corporate network to connect 3 or 4 devices and settled on the Linksys (by Cisco) Wireless-N Home Router, WRT120N. I did not even use the wireless, but I can tell you this router is the worst one I have ever experienced (and I have used a ton of them). Linksys/Cisco should be ashamed, and the project manager fired.

First, the router cannot even keep a robust data stream going over the wired network (forget about wireless) RJ45 connection. Each port loses data and checksums fail for any application capable of keeping track of the data reliability. Second, one cannot even setup the router easily because connections are not initiated reliably, and can lead to several resets/on-offs. All this with the latest software update, which is even worse than the factor installed previous version.

I hope I have sufficiently warned you off this and save you some time. If you buy this, don't be surprised at the issues that arise. Some of them may even seem like your computer, but they are not, it is just bad network packets!
