This Linksys Wireless Router was found to be fairly average by my husband and myself. It was cost-effective and easy to install and we didn't have any problems with security or reception when we were using it, however, one day it just stopped working. This was about 7 months after purchasing it new from a large computer wherehouse store. We thought it was our internet provider that was having a problem, but because we had to wait so long for our internet provider to get back to us, we decided to try another router and sure enough our internet was back up and running fine. I'm pretty sure this isn't the case for everyone, though, and I know Linksys is a popular brand so I'm not totally opposed to trying another Linksys in the future. We didn't do a whole lot of research before buying it since we really needed a cheap model that would work with our system so we went with what the sales people recommended. My advice would be to save your receipts! Performance We ended up having to get rid of it and purchase another brand instead.
