Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid wireless router...though sometimes choppy Overall, the design is simple, the wireless range is good, setup is very easy, and no loss of connection...yet. When I say sometimes "choppy," I mean the performance can have its ups and downs. Some days my connection is quick and smooth. Other days, there will be hitches where it will be slow for a little bit, then speed back up. I have done what I can to eliminate any interference (changed the router's channel, separated from other devices, etc.), but there is still the occasional hiccup. This, however, is not a huge deal, because the browsing speed is still faster than my older router...even when the E1200 is running a bit sluggish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this company. I'm 81 years old, born in BC (before Computers) but trying very hard to catch up. Recently I received a Kindle as a gift. I had no idea what it was or how to use it. The instructions said I would need a "router" (I didn't know what that was either), so I bought one recommended by a Best Buy clerk: the Linksys N300. On my attempt to install it, nothing went right, but Linksys Customer Support was incredibly patient and helpful. I couldn't believe how much time their technician spent with me, leading me step by step to a successful installation. The router has worked just fine for 2 weeks, but I will never forget the patience, the kindness, the know-how of that technician.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, wish wireless had a bit more range I've always been a Linksys customer. There had been a couple times that I've tried other brands, but always seem to come back. This router took all of 10 minutes to setup, and has been up and running for about 4 months now, not requiring me to log in once, or restart it. The only complaint I have is that I would like to see the range be a little bigger as I have a 2 story home, and the coverage isn't great at the far edge of the house. Of course I could get around that by buying the next model up with extended range. Overall, I've been very happy with this router, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a solid router with low maintenance and easy to setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent product. First, I am 74 and I cannot believe how easy it was to set up this router. I have always had Netgear but when I purchased a wireless printer for my laptop I began to have problem getting the router to cooperate wih my laptop. I tried everything including purchasing a new one (twice) before decdding to by the Linksys E1200. First, I didn't have to figure out the security program, it was automatic. Secondly, I did not have to reset the router when my daughter came to visit with her laptop, the Linksys 1200 made it very easy by assigning a code for guest users. There's more but I guess I'm out of room. I just enjoy it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable router I bought this router to replace a Belkin that couldn't keep up with the work. It preforms perfectly, managing two full-time MacBooks, a wireless Epson printer and Iphone and frequently, several guest computers and smartphones. It is fast, reliable and the basic setup takes just a few minutes. Advanced features and controls were harder to use. It took quite a while to discover how to access and control advance features from my browser. The quick setup feature doesn't address rebooting or tell you how to access the client list among other things. That information and the router's web address should be easier to find. I like the router, I'd buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time wireless router user I have always been a Linksys router user and well I've never been one for wireless but I can still be wired to my router with the N300 Wireless router Model e1200 and when nieces and nephews come over I can enable my wireless router for them to connect to my wireless network. With the Cisco Connect I can easily and effortlessly get my computer hooked to the internet and also easily connect to my router to easily adjust my settings. I also love the fact that it comes with a Guest Account that I can allow my family to connect to when they visit and also protecting my computer privacy at the same time. I would never use another brand of router. Simply said Linksys puts the "Easy" in Router Hardware

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cisco Router Installation When I got the router, I immediately put in the disc and tried to install it. I received an error and the setup file would not process. I waited until my daughter could help since she had installed her own router at her house. She also had problems and called Cisco support. Turns out that with my DSL the DSL modem that I have is also a router and was causing a conflict. Cisco tech support was able to work with us and get us up and running in a fairly short time. The tech support was very helpful and much appreciated. The router has been working fine with no problems. I am pleased to have a wireless setup now at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Linksys E1200! Our wired DSL connection was fine when we had only 1 computer, but when I bought a netbook PC, I wanted to be able to be online on the netbook anywhere in the house, even when my husband was online on our desktop Mac. The Linksys E1200 Wireless-N Router was the perfect solution! Setup was a cinch, thanks to great software and well-written instructions. The wireless connection with the E1200 is even faster on the Mac than the wired connection used to be. And it cost less than I thought it would to get a unit with the signal strength we needed. I highly recommend the E1200. Based on my experience with this product, I would definitely consider other Cisco products in the future.
