5 Star Review   By Sassy95 on HP - Jan 9, 2013   

Since I am not a computer tecky, I probably will not provide the review in technical terms. It has a good range, and we are pleased with the performance. It was extremely easy to install and connect.

Ludicrous Speed
5 Star Review   By eMCKc on HP - Apr 20, 2012   

This product has surpassed my wildest expectations. It does everything I want it to do in a perfectly efficient and discreet unit. My bandwidth has never been better. Setup is as straightforward as it gets, and your connection will be ready at the word go. Want simple, speed, now and fast? This is your new router.

Great Wireless Router
5 Star Review   By Assuredd on HP - Apr 10, 2012   

I bought this wireless router to go with my new computer with Win 7 Pro. I ran the install cd and everything went smooth. It only took about 5 minutes and my system was up and running. Guest connect is a breeze when my son visits and my televisons have joined the network seemlessly. You just have to be sure to print out the login code to add new sources to the network. My main TV is 32 feet from the router. Between the two is a wall, closet and bookcase. The signal is still extremely strong without a booster. I do not know how much further the strength will continue; but, I am impressed and highly recommend this Linksys E2500 router for a strong signal at 32 feet and easy installation.

OK for home use
3 Star Review   By LouA on HP - Jan 13, 2012   

My house is not large and I wanted a basic router that didn't cost over $100 for general personal computing needs. The router NOW works as it should with no real issues. It sometimes won't connect if you have to "go through" 2 walls or 2 floors, but this is uncommon. The set up was easy, but I HIGHLY recommend that you always create a "Easy Set Up Key" with a portable flash drive before allowing any other computers in your house to connect with the WiFi. I had problems with my work laptop changing my router passwords without my knowledge. 4 hours later, I was able to resolve the problem. Simply attempting to reinstall the router will not work. The guest account may be tricky to use with older XP laptops: sometimes it will work sometimes it won't. I havn't figured out why, I assume it's a XP issue. Also, the router will not install older XP machines unless you have Microsoft Service Pack 3 successfully installed. It is working well now on my "permanent" home machines after I worked out the bugs.

Worked right out of the box.
5 Star Review   By drgoldene on HP - Dec 24, 2011   

As someone who has had difficulty in installing a router, I must say this one was a pleasure. The software made it possible to install in three easy steps and it began working right away, not only on my computer but also on my Nook. Plus with a password protected wireless connection, my computer is now more secure from hackers.

Terrible router!!
1 Star Review   By member msapute - Nov 10, 2011   

Strengths: Dual Band, sleek design

Weakness: Unreliable router, disconnect frequently, lack of indicator lights.

I have been a long time Linksys user with 5-6 routers, APs, Switches around my house for years. I had high confidence when I purchased E2500 a month ago at a local store. A sales woman approached me and told me that Cisco router's quality has gone downhill, and she adviced me to buy other brand. I was a bit offended, thinking that she must be on comission. There is no way that there is any better quality router than Linksys on the consumer market. Well, I was WRONG!! Within almost four weeks, I had gone through THREE of the same E2500 and had similar disconnecting issues. The connection might go steady for days and on some random days, it got disconnected frequently, some were within 5 mins! I had researched many postings from various forums, changed MTU, changed beacon interval to 50, Fragmentation threshold to 2306 and RTS threshold to 2307. All of that did not help. I exchanged it three times, so what were the odds that I got three defective units?? I gave up and returned the last unit and bought Netgear N600 instead. Have not had a single disconnect so far.. and for the same price, netgear has an extra USB connection to share external HD over the network... I'm done with overpriced-disappointing quality Cisco router...
