My disappointment is that the old WRT54G allowed me to set up the router as a gateway to another router. Since I have a wireless signal strength problem in my house, I had an E3200 attached to my cable modem, with a hardwire connection to the gateway-configured WRT54G located at the other end of the house, allowing me to have one network SSID across the whole house. I found that very handy. Replaced the WRT54G with the E2500, found no instruction for creating a similar network configuration, so at times I must make a point of disconnecting from the E2500 and re-connecting to the E3200 when I move laptop or smart phone from one end of the house to the other. Sometimes that is automatic, sometimes not.
An admittedly brief search on the Linksys site did not provide help with the situation.
Contacted Tech support in April, they initially said these were just a display problem - but then devices stopped working / conflicts occurred. In May, Tech support walked me through a complete reset of the router and rebuild of the network. At this point they finally they said that they were aware of bug and a fix was in the works.
Well, here in Oct, the same cycle repeated itself and I needed to reset the router and reconfigure it again. Even after reset, DHCP table will not always display correct Mac address or IP info - have to refresh multiple times before correct info is shown. All devices still work - but if the pattern continues as before, this will degrade over time.
Despite assurance in May that a fix was being worked on, no fix has been received, and there are no official firmware updates available from company. I expect the pattern to continue - and if no fix / firmware update is made, I will seriously look at replacing this router with a more reliable one from a different manufacturer.
For the first 6 months I had linksys reps trying to work with me to get speeds were they ought to be but it would never be consistently quick and quite often internet browsing was slow and video streaming was impossible. The service rep was good and friendly and followed up often, she just couldn't make this thing work well.
I guess out of brand loyality? I always figure I'd get this thing humming...
I will say that the smartphone app was nice functioned well and looked good, take that for what it's worth...
I don't know I should have cut bait and returned it right away. I am on to my first ever Netgear and so far so good.
