The Linksys Wireless G Broadband Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect both screaming fast Wireless G (802.11g at 54Mbps) and Wireless B (802.11b at 11Mbps) devices to the network. Theres also a built in 4 port full duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired Ethernet devices together. Connect four PCs directly, or attach more hubs and switches to create as big a network as you need. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high speed cable or DSL Internet connection. Once your computers are connected to the Router and the Internet, they can communicate with each other too, sharing resources and files. All your computers can print on a shared printer connected anywhere in the house.Power Requirements: DC: 12VDC, Consumption: 0.5A.1 year hardware limited warranty, Lifetime award winning online support tools.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I purchased this in March 2017, and tried so hard to make it work for my household. I shrugged off the wireless lock-ups or weird issues as something that I was configuring incorrectly. I even tried the tried-and-true DD-WRT firmware (which is now mostly compatible with the WRT3200ACM) to see if the issues would disappear.
They did not. I still have the exact same problem as of May 29.
Basically, what happens is this: after a variable amount of time from being rebooted, the wireless radios will work and everything is fine. However, within a few hours to a couple of days, the wireless radios stop working. The router will not accept new wireless connections, and existing connections can't access internet. Wired (Ethernet) appears to work during this time.
The current rumor circulating on the internet is that the wireless chipset's driver, published by Marvell, is broken or doesn't work well. Returning and replacing these routers has been proven not to be effective at resolving this issue, as it's likely you'll receive another defective product. So at some point down the road if you buy one of these you'll likely get stabbed in the back by the poor wireless driver. Until there's lots of evidence that this is fixed and that both Linksys and Marvell have their act together, you should not buy this router. Like me, you'll end up eating a ~200 cost for a broken product.
Contacted Linksys support Nov. 27th, after some brief trouble shooting with the tech, they determined my unit needed to be RMA'd...fine. I gave them a credit card number for an advanced replacement the said would be arriving in 7 business days. On Dec. 7th I notified my replacement router had just shipped....Yes, that's right.. almost two business weeks just for an "advanced" replacement to ship! I called Linksys and was told they had trouble finding an available replacement to ship. That sounded ominous but I am in it now. I was assure I would be receiving the replacement sometime within the next week (mean while there is a hold on my credit card for the cost of the replacement waiting for this replacement to arrive so I can return the malfunctioning one).
We will see how the replacement performs when it arrives. But for now, I would recommend checking the other available routers before purchasing the WRT3200ACM (or if you do...keep the your old router as a spare until Linksys figures out how to properly handle problematic products).
Received my replacement unit from Linksys in a couple of days....the same WRT3200ACM model. Got it online, updated the firmware...bam same problem.
Now on the Linksys support site only a firmware version from months ago is available with a note that people experiencing problems should roll back the firmware to the old version (which btw doesnt address the KRACK exploit vulnerabilities). I did the roll back as instructed. Still having issues with devices staying connected.
Guess I will have to stand in line with the other WRT3200ACM owners waiting for the Linksys team to let the customers be their beta testers. Wondering if Linksys will make this right.
Still dealing with this fiasco. Called Linksys Support again 12/26 because I am...like everyone else having problems the WRT3200 ACM router dropping wifi. Was told they were very sorry and they would ship me a EA8300 overnight as a replacement. I called them on 01/02 since I had not received the replacement nor the promised email with a tracking number. Support told me they had a record of the replacement request but it had not been properly finalized by "Tech Support". Now I am again waiting on a promised email notifying me the replacement has shipped.
So in review...If you would like a month long odyssey of tech support calls, hours on hold listening to bad music, and to be witness to a failed support program and a broken product with no fix in sight...This is the product and company for you!

**Acceder al sitio de Linksys smart wifi te permite un sin fin de funciones, desde ver cuanto consume cada dispositivo conectado, habilitar una red provisional para invitados, dar prioridad de bando de ancha a ciertos dispositivos e incluso plataformas entre otras más.
En cuanto al envió llego por UPS, y llego en tiempo pero el problema que veo es que la actualización en su sitio sobre el estatus del pedido tardan en actualizar bastante, algo que con pedidos de importación con DHL no sucede.
Ya se lanzó el nuevo firmware y con eso resolvieron los problemas y por lo tanto le vuelvo a dar 5 estrellas. Aun no le cargo firmware open source (ellos aun andan mejorando sus wifi drivers), pero creo que este router será una de los mejores para estos fines.
La señal es adecuada y no tengo problemas.
