Now, having made that harsh statement as if it would apply to every user in every case, some qualification is certainly in order.
I unpacked the router and took extreme care to follow the setup instructions PRECISELY.
I was connected to the internet the second I finished running the configuration utility from the installation CD - but the catch is that the setup utility has to be run with an ethernet cable connected.
Once I removed the cable and tried to connect to the internet in wireless mode - the end of the line had arrived. There was no connection. Period.
I could connect to the router via its built in config (HTTP) utility and I could ping the default gateway (in the router) but I could not get past that point.
After a couple of hours of fruitless trial and error, I gave up and called Linksys tech support. You know what that means - you get to talk to a person who knows next to nothing about computers or routers. But, they do have their scripts to follow and if you are patient with them and endure the mindless, mostly just plain useless instructions they give you and don't offend them, they will eventually let you talk to a Tier Two person who actually does know something about routers.
To end a very long story with a quick summation, after reaching the aforementioned Tier Two person, I learned that there are arcane, obscure settings buried deep within the router's config menus that you will never find without help (and even if you did find them by accident, there is no chance you would know what to do with them).Read more ›
Long short, the 1.1 version fired up fine for me. I'm a techie but I followed the directions anyway (!). The setup wizard ran fine. I configured WPA (not WPA2 -- I have a device that doesn't support it). Other than that, all default settings. Works great on MacBook Pro (with wireless N), 2 Lenovos running XP Pro (G) and an HP (G). Solid, reliable connection for all of them. Excellent signal strength compared to the ABG router it replaces. Speed is excellent (4Mb down) and I get at least 2x the distance.
This router replaced a Belkin Pre-N router for the following reasons:
- Its Web interface/CPU processor was slow when it performed my requests.
- It lost connectivity to the internet and it did not detect that. Hard resets were required.
- Finally, the router performance went downhill. A dial-up modem would have been just as fast. This was a tough one to debug as I just switched from DSL to Cable. I root caused the issue to the router and verified it was not a configuration issue. The problem existed on both wired and wireless. Belkin customer service while courteous and good, confirmed my findings and were going to send me a replacement. However, I got tired of waiting for the RMA to be approved and sent the router back to the store I bought it from. I used my 5 year old wired linksys router to rule out the DSL/Cable internet problem.
So I decided to shell out the extra few dollars, and put Linksys back into my network, and its worth every dollar I spent.
This router worked right out of the box if you use a wired connection. For the folks that are whining about having problems with the wireless aspect of it, well let me say that I guarantee all these folks bought a Wireless N router to be used in either a Wireless G or B environment. Well guess what, it won't work out of the box and you do need to tweak it. I for one bought it despite the fact that my network is a mixed G and B in anticipation of me getting an N wireless adapter.Read more ›
