easy to setup
Comments about Linksys Advanced Dual-Band N Router With 4-Port Switch:
I was able to use the included software to setup the Linksys router, I than used the advanced option to rename and change the password so that the router had the same name and password of the router I was replacing. All my devices connected to the Linksys router. The only problem I see is that the software uses the same password as the network. I usually use a different password to access the router from the one to allow network connect. But I can live with this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Price...works great...get one...
By Ed 911

Great router...lots of options...here's some tips. Once I determined who was on what channel...in my house and also my neighbor's networks...using a free phone app that analyzes WIFI connections, I determined that I wanted to select my own channels...so that there was little or no interference from neighboring devices. I found that my 2.4 GHZ band was crowded, with multiple networks on Channels 1, 6, and 9. (My 2.4 GHZ band was sharing channel 1 with two other networks) I opened my router webpage...selected manual setup under WIFI and was able to select a 2.4 GHZ channel that wasn't in use...for me...channel 8. And, using the free analyzer app that I downloaded to my phone, I was able to determine that no one else was using a 5 GHZ network, so I have it all to myself. I set my 5 GHZ channel to 157...and bandwidth to 40 MHZ. Even though the 5 GHZ band is a little slower than my 2.4 GHZ band...no one is on it...and I was able to set it up for N only operation...so that no slower devices could connect to it and degrade my throughput. FYI...Your router will sync to the slowest connected device...so, if you have a B device on you band,( read old computer, or other hardware) you'll never be able to achieve the speeds you paid for...because the router will downgrade its service to all nodes / connections as if they are B type connections...for compatibility purposes. That sort of negates the value in buying an N or AC router...unless you do like I did and set up your 5 GHZ band for N only...then the slower speed devices can't connect and you will preserve your band integrity for your enjoyment only. So, to recap...my 5 GHZ band is setup for N only and my 2.4 GHZ band is setup for everyone else...b, g, and n.

I realized my router was not as secure as I had believed. I researched wifi security and found that It was time to update. Linksys is such a reliable product name. I reviewed and compared companies and made a decision based on my research results. I purchased a Linksys E2500 N600 Dual-Band Wireless router. Installation was easy and the security enhanced. I have had my wifi hacked in the past and I feel secure now that I purchased and am using a secure Linksys router. Do your homework and check the security your router provides. If it's time to upgrade, I recommend Linksys!
purchased a couple of months ago and am satisfied with it.

I bought this router on account my old one was running slow. What a great buy. Runs fast and great distance in the house.

I was a little anxious about this up and running.... know enough about technology to get myself in trouble, but it was extremely easy, no glitches. Followed directions. Everything I needed was in the box!
