Question by john: My Internet connection keeps going out. But when It does I still can connect to the wireless router.?
I have a 200$ Linksys wireless router but my modem is a very old Motorola surfboard baseline model. I assume that when it goes out it’s the modems messing up but I’m not sure.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    The Linksys EA2700 is a good midrange router. If your only goals for it are connecting wirelessly with your phone, tablet, or laptop it should perform flawlessly.

    I tried to set it up as someone who is not too familiar with routers. The instructions that come with basically say to insert the included CD into your computer, plug the router into your computer, and then follow the prompts. This is what I did and the entire process was painless. Everything worked perfectly when I disconnected the cable and attempted to connect wirelessly. I then proceeded to add the router to my phone’s wifi and my tablet’s wifi. Everything connected without a hitch. The only surprise was the the process of setting up the router took about ten minutes. Granted almost all of that time was spent staring at my laptop waiting for the software to finish (no interaction required from me). Still… It took longer than expected.

    If you’re familiar with good ol’ 192.168.x.x then that works fine too. If that made no sense, don’t worry about it, the included software takes care of everything for you.

    Personally, I feel that there is not much that is worth the premium price for the router. It’s not that it’s bad–it’s just not amazing.
    Apparently, there is an Android app that is available that can also adjust settings but, for the life of me, I can’t see how that’s very useful. Instead, I wish it included a USB connector so I could print wirelessly. That’s becoming a common feature in “better than low end” routers, these days.
    On the plus side, the setup software is easy and it’s attractive. I like the internal antenna design and haven’t noticed any degradation of signal compared to my other two routers (both with dual external antennas).

    I’m in shock over what Cisco just did. (somewhat resolved, I’m still updating), June 26, 2012

    This review is from: Linksys EA2700 App-Enabled N600 Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit (Personal Computers)

    My internet just went out, I’ve had a few resets since i purchased this router. But, other than that it has rocked hard. This time I do the reset & the Cisco Connect Program is only offering me a single choice. Which opens my browser & takes me to the new Cisco Cloud, or whatever its called. They want ALL my personal info & router admin info, password, etc. So.. I simply closed the browser without filling out a thing. Go to reopen my Cisco Connect software that came with my router, to check on my router settings. Lo and behold the only trace of the software ever having been on my computer, is the completely empty Cisco Connect folder in my Programs folder.

    I have never had something like this done.. remove a program that I installed without even asking me, much less no warning what-so-ever. I registered, they have my email, too.

    Another guy that used to work for Linksys or Cisco, posted on the Cisco Community forums that he did try to reload the CD in an attempt to use the old version of tools we had residing on our computers, it would not even reload. If someone that really knows what they are doing can’t, I won’t even attempt it.

    It’s working right now, so I’ll just keep an eye on the forums there. Will update this review if we get any more info.

    Update: Cisco Community Wireless Forum is in an absolute uproar over this forced firmware for the new cloud & removal of the local software. The entire day has now almost passed with no official Cisco Rep addressing any of our concerns.

    Update: They have made an official post & stickied it in the Cisco Community Wireless Forum. I have not done it, yet. But the linked instructions are very well done, complete with pictures with step by step. I’m leaving my 1 star until I see if this stabilizes this router. As I said right off, I have had to reset my entire system several times too many, for no obvious reason. And, I want to see if they fix it where the cloud can be a real option, rather than now having firmware we cannot update, which is still absolutely unacceptable.

    Update: An official announcement on their blog from the 5th, which I just found today. I doubt I can post a link but it is the Cisco Blog on their website. This is in bold: Customers can set-up and manage their Linksys router without signing up for a Cisco Connect Cloud account.

    I personally have not unchecked the auto update feature on my rolled back version. But according to the blog post, I should be able to do so, without the cloud being force fed to me. Once I have tried it & it does work, I will be back to confirm.

    Update July 12 2012: I asked on the official forums, a few days ago, if it was indeed safe to allow auto update on my rolled back classic version. I wanted to know if it would cause me to again lose my internet connect 7 require complete reset, etc. Was told by a forum admin to hold off until they can get this verified.

    I just found this very well written article about this entire fiasco.

    Not a bad router, but not great either., April 27, 2012

    This review is from: Linksys EA2700 App-Enabled N600 Dual-Band Wireless-N Router with Gigabit (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    I’ve used countless routers over the years, even some of the very first built by Linksys. There weren’t many options and Linksys always seemed to be one of the best. They’ve come a long way since the old 802.11b routers. But they seem to get to a point where they are so fast and add on so many features, it leaves an open market for the low and mid-range products. This brings us to the “mid-range” where the Linksys EA2700 N600 Dual-Band 802.11n Router ends up.

    While I don’t have any of my really old routers any more, I will compare this two that I currently have. Which is the currently slightly more expensive ASUS RT-N56U and the Netgear N900 WNDR4500. The Netgear is of course much more expensive, but its here for comparison anyways.

    The Hardware:

    First, out of the box, the EA2700 looks very plain and minimalistic. The antennas are internal and the chassis looks and feels like cheap plastic. But if it’s something you’re never going to look at, I doubt you’re going to care. Personally I have to keep mine in an open area, so it’s nice if it looks nice. :) In the box, you’ve got the router, a network cable, and CD. No real instructions other than to put in the CD.

    Setup:

    Since I wanted to go through the “normal” process, I decided to throw in the CD and try the wizard. Unfortunately since I wasn’t going to use a “standard” configuration, the wizard just flat out didn’t work and just kind of left me at a dead-end. Basically I have my modem connected directly to a dedicated physical desktop/router, not an access point. Because of this, this completely threw off the setup process.

    So off into the advanced configuration I go. I was able to easily find its unusual IP of 10.39.48.59 and guessed the login/password (admin/admin). I found myself in a familiar but not-so-intuitive Linksys setup menu. They honestly haven’t changed a whole lot here over the years. Which is good and bad. You have lots of advanced features to play with. But if you’re not all that tech savvy, it’s very easy to get lost in there.

    And yes, that’s why they have the Cisco Connect software. However, if it fails or can’t connect to the AP for some reason, you don’t have many options. Most new routers have this stuff built-into the router itself. It adds an extra step by explaining how to access it via the browser, but it really is a better approach for new and experienced users. In Cisco’s defense, the software wizard did claim to handle virtually all of the standard setup for you. So in a normal setup environment, there shouldn’t really even be a need for instructions. Just follow the wizard and off you go.

    Features:

    The Linksys EA2700 is not only right in the middle of price, but features as well. You’ll note that you do get a respectable 300Mbps (which is always much lower in the real world) connection, Guest access, Firewall, 802.11n, all of the normal security features, and of course Dual-Band. They even throw in Gibabit ports which are handy if you also have a few desktops nearby.
    What isn’t included are things found on higher end devices. Such as 450Mbps speeds, overall faster throughput, longer range, USB ports hosting data, print server, and “CD-Less” installation (ie. Netgear, ASUS, etc).

    Speed:

    First I should point out that if you are only going to surf the web, this is all rather pointless. :) Just buy the cheapest reliable router you can find and run with it. The whole point of having fast speeds is for bandwidth intensive tasks, such as transferring large files, streaming Hi-Def media, or even Local gaming.

    For my test, I copied several large MKV files to my notebook and walked around the house to see how it compared to my other routers. I also tried both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Overall, the speeds were fairly good, but not quite as fast as the others. Right next to the router, it was about 10% slower across the board. And the further away I got, the more that deficit increased. This is about what I expected considering this is a cheaper device.

    I also transferred a few files over the included GB ports and was able to get the same speeds I get on my normal wired switches. Nothing too surprising there.

    Pros:

    + Good wireless performance
    + 4 Gigabit ports
    + Cisco Connect Software for standard setup
    + Advanced Linksys setup options

    Cons:

    – Limited Cisco Connect software
    – Average features and performance
    – No built-in wizard
    – Cheap design/build

    Conclusion:

    So overall for the price and features, this is really not a bad product. It does everything it says it will, but not a whole lot more. You’ll have to step up to a more expensive model from Linksys (or another brand) if you want extra’s like USB storage or top-of-the-line performance and wireless speeds. And given that I’m not exactly a huge fan…

  6. If your computers are staying connected to the router and you just lose Internet access then it’s probably the modem that’s failing. If your computers lost the network connection it would be the other way around.
