So I was quite happy to receive the E900 which is at the bottom of the heap as far as features are concerned in the lineup of consumer routers by Linksys, but in all other regards, is a worthy wireless router at a very attractive price point.
Installation was a 5-minute affair using the provided setup disc. It walks you through the easy steps to connect and setup your router. About all you have to do other than connect the ethernet cable and power supply is provide a new SSID name if you wish and a different password, if you wish. The setup software actually provides both a SSID and password for you so if you choose to accept the given name and password, you're pretty much good to go. As my installer was completing, it informed me that an update was available for the router and once I accepted that, it proceeded to download and install the update. I didn't have to do a thing.
There is an issue though with the easy setup, and that is that the WIFI router passphrase and router admin password are sharing the same password. This is not secure and you should immediately use the web interface to change the admin passoword to something different.
Now that I've had the router up and running I'm happy to report that the signal throughout my house is strong.Read more ›
These are the steps given on this blog..
Go to [...] and login to your router. If you've never done this, look for instructions that came with your router or do a google search to find the default username and password.
Find a page that has QoS settings. For the E1200, you need to click on "Applications & Gaming" and select the "QoS" sub-menu.
Disable WMM Support.
Apparently making a wireless router that does what it's supposed to do is very difficult, as demonstrated by thousands of reviews of routers on Amazon full of anger, frustration and disappointment.
So the recent Linksys E series of routers are welcome on that count. They're fairly simple to install and use, and work reliably. If your needs are simple - you want a wireless connection, over not too far of a distance - the Linksys E900 may work just fine.
But the bar for speed, features and range is also getting raised all the time. Many people will do better by looking for a router with a few more features and capabilities than the E900 offers.
GOOD SPEED: With 2 transmit and 2 receive antennas (2T2R, in the lingo), this router can achieve N speeds if you have the right adapter on your computer. In theory each antenna can handle 150 Mbps of traffic, thus the spec shows 300 Mbps. In practice, it's much lower speeds - so you're doing very well if you get 50-80 Mbps on a 2.4 Ghz band router.
MODEST RANGE: Router range varies, depending on the transmit power; the antennas; and other factors. This router does best with shorter range applications.Read more ›
After that, I did a google search for the description of my problem "linksys wireless slow download speed" and five minutes later the problem was fixed, thanks "Jim's Blog". It was in the QoS settings of the Applications and Games section where a switch needed to be turned off. I wasted about a total of four hours following Cisco's unhelpful problem solving path, with a backache as a result. Point is, if you have a problem with a Cisco product, don't waste your time with their misleading guidance. Instead, describe your problem in a search engine. Thanks google search and Jim's blog for fixing the problem in about five minutes. I do not know why this possible solution was not in Cisco's database of solutions for the described problem. Their "award winning 24/7 customer service" was completely useless, and they had the nerve to try and up-sell me on a service plan!
By the way, the link that solved this problem is: [...]
Now, I am happy with this router.
