Linksys WRT54G2 Reviews

Good Router

While the router was easy to set up with the no-security settings, I've had a very hard time setting up a password needed network.

B& H has been great. But this product has not proved to be a good one. I had to return it because it was defected. Linksys so far has offered a replacement for which I am waiting on. ... A bit disappointing.

I would buy this product again

This Linksys router was very easy to setup and secure. This router I've been using for about a month, I have not had any problems with having to reset the router like have in the past with other routers. I would recommend this router for use in anyone's home or small office.

It works

It's easy to set up and worked right away with no problems right out of the box. It's not the fastest router but good enough for my simple home network.

Easy and reliable

Wanted to replace an old Linksys router that didn't support 802.11g or WPA. This router does everything we are looking for. The interface is easy to use and it doesn't need to reset after every config change like the older Linksys routers. There are still some config changes that require a restart but it's much improved.

This is great for my home network. However, not recommended if you are trying to stream HD videos.

Easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to hide on a back corner of my desk. The speed is excellent. No complaints as of yet.
