none that I can think of because it didn't work long enough
difficult to set up, overheats and hangs after a few hours
I bought this at the First Markham Place grand opening. Took it home, hooked it up. The network setup portion wouldn't work properly so I set it up manually. After 2-3 hours operation, the unit became excessively hot and froze up. I brought it back to NCIX and got a second unit. Same result. On returning it to NCIX, I was gleefully informed that, sadly, I had missed the 30 day return window by 2 DAYS so they wouldn't refund or try to repair the unit and I'd have to deal with the manufacturer directly. In summary, poor product (twice) and poor customer service by NCIX. I have bought from NCIX in the past without complaint, but I am now weary to deal with them again. Buyer beware. Note: I tried to give this 1 star because my experience with this is terrible. Unfortunately, to give a review less than 3 stars requires an order number and in store purchases don't have them. So if anyone from NCIX would like to try to straighten this mess out, my INVOICE number is 4036527

Experience: 76 Days


fast reliable wireless n
i have a wirless network setup at my home with three labtops and two wireless printers and all i can say is this baby has never failed me yet.you get what you pay for.

Experience: 3 Days


Dual Band,
N compliant,
Gb lan
I bought it for 140 Can$, did not really have set it up right now, but it had a user friendly interface so far.

Have to play a little bit more with it.

Experience: 1 Years


Very fast for file transfer, Hd movie.
Support 2.4 and 5 ghz wifi.
Support DD-WRT mega without issues.
Have light that will tel you if you are in 100 or 1000.
The wireless distance can be better.

I have this Router since a year and I'm very happy with it. If you dont like the Gui of Linksys you can install the DD-WRT mega and it's running very smootly. For the wireless it's working well but the distance can be better.

strong signal;
MIMO work very great;
Replaced DIR 825 because of the chain d/c, so far in this one year ownership of this router, I have never need to restart, or reconnect it.

It works great to me but not D-link's router.

Experience: 14 Days


Can run DD-WRT
Easy to upgrade to use DD-WRT rather than linksys firmware
Excellent performance (when running DD-WRT)
Doesn't come with DD-WRT by default
A little expensive
802.11a support is currently superfluous
I purchased this router since my linux PC smoothwall based router died, and I very much wanted to have openVPN access to my home network well abroad.

DD-WRT was chosen as how I was going to do this (it's a router firmware that is based on linux), and the WRT610N just happened to be a great hardware platform to do it on.

It seems NCIX is now shipping the Version 2.0 hardware, and upgrading to DD-WRT was as simple as using the routers built in firmware update  tool.

Easy as pie.

Subjectively speaking this router can handle a lot of simultaneous connections smoothly - I have a voip phone and used to notice a lot of stuttering and noise when I would have torrents running (even if bandwidth limited) while on the phone. This router handles both without blinking and even has QoS features that allow discrimination based on MAC address - so in this case the phone gets highest priority and therefore sees no delays.

Overall a great product when running DD-WRT.

Experience: 14 Months


Very strong signal strength
Cuts out periodically and not sure why
Ran my computer wired, wireless... My sons gaming comp, a PS3 playing live, and a laptop downloading at the same time and nobody complained. I run a gaming computer upstairs. My son runs a gaming comp downstairs, and his xbox. Signal is very good for him. I bought a high end adapter for his comp and he can play any multiplayer game without any noticeable lag. I had to get rid of a wireless phone that was cutting off the signal and also find that if you run older wireless G laptops on the network, there may be stability issues. But to be honest, I haven't looked too far into how to remedey that issue. The firmware upgrade would probably help. I haven't even tried running the gaming comp on the stronger frequency either.

Speed and USB Storage with Interface
None yet
This is a really great router. I get great speed wired or on Wireless N. I have chosen this model because of the USB storage feature, which has an interface config as well. Now all I do is hide this with my USB 1.5 terabyte drive & my backup are kept safe in case of a robbery.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Wirless N, Gigabit and dual band
fantastic router. fast and effecient, with all the fetures you need or could ever need. the usb port on the back isnt that great unfortuatly. HDD runs REALLY slow. not worth using.

Features [ Edit | History ]

The sleek Simultaneous Dual-N Band Wireless Router works in two radio bands at the same time, delivering twice the bandwidth for smooth high-definition video, lag free gaming, and uninterrupted music in one band, while browsing the Internet, sharing files, sending e-mail, and printing in the other. Wireless-N gives you incredible range and speed in both bands, while Linksys' Entertainment Optimized Networking (EON) technology prioritizes network traffic so that time-sensitive applications like HD video stream smoothly.

The Storage Link feature lets you connect a hard drive or flash-based USB storage device directly to your network to easily add gigabytes of storage. Access your music, video, or data files from any PC within your network, or securely through the Internet. The 4 built-in Gigabit ports provide far faster connections to your wired devices than standard Ethernet ports.

Setup is quick and easy with the PC or Mac compatible Setup Wizard, and making secure wireless connections is as simple as pressing a button with Wi-Fi Protected Setup™. Use the included Linksys EasyLink Advisor (LELA) program as your personal technology expert to help manage and optimize your network as it grows.

With the Linksys Simultaneous Dual-N Band Wireless Router at the center of your home or office network, you can easily add storage, share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers and multi-player games, and run media-intensive applications at amazing speeds, without the hassle of stringing wires!

  • Internet-sharing Router and 4-port Gigabit Switch, with a built-in, dual-band, speed and range enhanced Wireless Access Point

  • Wireless-N technology uses multiple radios per band to create  robust signals for maximum range and speed, with reduced dead spots
  • Connect a hard drive or flash-based USB storage device to allow access to your music, video, or data files from within your network, or through the Internet
