Runs very hot; no USB-related features; a short one-year warranty.

The Linksys WRT300N is a great device for the price for the home or small business end users. Boasting Wireless B/G/N Networks on the 2.4 GHZ, with 32MB of Memory and 4MB of Flash, 4X 10/100 Lan ports & 1X 10/100 WAN port. This device we could compare to the "Newer, Revised WRT54GS" with N technology. In range tests and speed tests that we have PERSONALLY done with the WRT300N & WRT54GS (Stock routers running DD-WRT) are about the same with the WRT300N slightly ahead. But if you are looking for an all in one device you wont have to upgrade or do anything to for years would be the WRT350N or WRT600N models. Also the WRT300N device lacks expansion features the WRT54G/GS Models had such as : Detachable Antennas & Wall Mounting Brackets. Overall again we rate this device a 4 out of 5.

While not a true wireless B/G/N router as I'd hoped to find, this router does have a number of redeeming features. Among these is the secured setup option where the wireless network is locked down at the push of a button while doing you initial setup.
Linksys is also very well known as a good brand for network hardware, so you can bet on good support and firmware updates. Many of your unknown and off-brand devices have very little to offer in support, reliability, or features. The sleek design of the device fits in with most home users impressions of computer hardware, not being the odd boxes cluttering up the place.
Now don't be fooled, there are plenty of options for you to try, so setup can take a while or seem intense, but a cool head and a handy manual can help you get through it easily, while adding any tweaks you wish to implement.
There are newer devices from this and other companies, but this gets the job done well and easily for most any home user.
I bought this to replace a WRT120N I was using for my network. I recently upgraded my broadband with a docis 3.0 modem which has a gigabit network connection, and a new computer, also with a gigabit network card, so I needed a router with gigabit network connections..thus the WRT300N. When the new router was first added, drivers and setup were virtually automatic..all I had to do was change the router SSID and turn on the WPA2 security, enter the access code I wanted to use and turn on HTTPS. Initially the router was dropping wireless access about every 20 minutes. Once I downloaded the firmware update from Linksys and installed it in the router, that problem disappeared. I mounted it on the wall behind my computer, and have had no overheating problems whatsoever. Great wireless range, excellent network speeds and low price for the refurbished unit. This router is NOT able to have dd-wrt homebrew firmware installed-the only negative I can see so far.
I've been using this router for about a week now with good results. It's been reliable and is fast.
The only negative was the installation software. I try to open the user guide on the cd from inside the installation software. It's smart enough to tell me that I have a superior PDF reader than the basic free reader, so it won't install the basic reader for me. Fair enough, but then it isn't smart enough to use the superior reader. OK, no big deal. The user guide is just a file on a CD, so I open it from outside the installation program.
Then I try to set up the router. I hook everything up in the specified order, then wait about five minutes until it says it can't find the router (that is about one foot away from the PC). So I power everything off, including the PC, and try again. Same results. Not cool.
I say to hell with the Linksys software, and ask Windows 7 Ultimate to configure the router. A minute later it's configured and running fine. No doubt which software came out ahead in that battle. Then I use the Web interface to check the router configuration, and everything is great except that the default password is still in effect. I change that, download and apply the latest router firmware, and the job is done.
About 10 minutes later, the wireless icon changes shape and I can't access any Web sites. I'm not happy with my new router. I power it off and on, but still don't have Internet connectivity. Then the icon changes shape again and connectivity is restored. It apparently was a problem on the ISP's side of the router that the ISP fixed fairly quickly. Just some bad luck that it happened so soon after I switched over to the new router. It hasn't happened again.
Maybe the Linksys installation software doesn't work quite right with Windows 7, or maybe it's something more specific to my configuration. Anyway, the hardware has been great, so I'm happy as a clam.
I bought this router to replace a linksys wireless g router that was starting to drop connections more than I liked. Comcast actually recommended this Linksys WRT310N Wireless N as a much better alternative and for once, they were right. The range on this router is much longer than on the older one. The wireless connection is much stronger and it has not loss connection yet. That being said, it was not easy to set up the router. The set up disc said to install before hooking up the wires but then it refused to let me install until after all wires were connected. It kept refusing to connect even though everything was wired and after it successfully installed, I had to completely shut down my modem and the router and restart them to get a solid connection and keep it. Set up took about 45 minutes, but once it was all up and working, it has worked superbly. It easily handles 2 wireless connections and 2 wired connections while maintaining excellent strength on all of them!
