                I purchased this router earlier this month (February) to replace my old router (just got a new computer as well) This router was easy to set up (just put in the CD and follow the instructions). So far it seems to be working well for the most part (every now and then I get a dropped signal but that's likely due to my internet subscriber), otherwise it works good.

                    So far, this seems a good product. Set up was very easy, and I've had no problems connecting anything to it. Most of our devices are 30-50 feet away and through a couple of walls. The signal comes through strong. My only complaint is that it is made to lay flat on a table top, rather than stand on one of its edges, so it takes more space than it would have to. I only give it four stars because it's only been online a few days. If it lasts a year, it'll earn the fifth.

                        This new router solved the problem I was having with my laptop computer. I have five devises in the house using WiFi, and none of them have been dropped after three weeks of service. Highly recommended.

                            A BHPhoto representative talked with me about the type of router I needed as a replacement for my current equipment. I purchased the router he suggested, it was delivered very promptly, installed easily, and has performed flawlessly since. The entire process was as good as Consumer Reports said it would be. Thanks for the good advice, a very competitive price, really quick delivery, and to date, great performance. Expect me to be back!

                                  I do wish it had indicator lights on the front so I could view its status from my desk chair.

                                    Currently using router in apartment with 4 grad students. Only problem was that Cisco's setup software does not work if you're trying to set up on a Mac with Mountain Lion, but a roommate had a PC, so that was easily worked around. As a router, it works well and does everything we needed.

Aside from trying to sell me upgrade and other products for my laptop that I wasn't interested in.

                                                    Home use, mainly for basic wired and wireless Internet connectivity. Very easy setup. Includes guest-use option. Replaced older Linksys "G" wireless router. Wireless speed seems a little better but range seems only about the same as old "G" router. All in all it's a good product.

                                                        We have three separate laptops and three mobile phones (two iPhones and an Android) that access this router and it seems to be doing a good job. We watch a lot of streaming shows on Netflix and Hulu, and the content plays without a hitch. The only thing preventing it from getting 5 Stars was that the setup required a call to the maker to troubleshoot getting it set up, as it wasn't automatically connecting to the Internet. That call was fairly brief, however, and once connected we've had no problems whatsoever.

                                                            Although my old N router wasn't all that old, it didn't have the speed that I was hoping for. The E2500 installation was about a hundred times easier to install than the old router, and thank goodness, the E2500's speed exceeded my expectations. Haven't used it long enough to assess reliability, but so far, it's worked without a hitch. I am 100% satisfied with this purchase.
