The right hand side of my two-piece desk unit. This is my networking corner with my Netgear FVG318 VPN and firewall, Cisco ATA 186 VoIP converter, Netgear SC101 SAN box and Apple AirPort Extreme router and wireless access point. I took this picture to demonstrate how nicely this amount of equipment could be cleaned up to look. This is a lot more networking gear than the average home would have, is very accessible and easy to keep clean, can be seen easily to check for problems and is out of the way. The AirPort could be stacked on the Netgear but it has the wireless and I didn’t want to add any additional interference. The AirPort’s AC Adapter could go on the floor too but I like it on the desk better. There is an APC UPS unit on the floor providing protected power to all of these units. My cable modem, which never needs any attention from me, is on the floor behind the desk. Not perfect but it didn’t work well on the desk and I have only needed to touch it once or twice in the past year so I felt that it wasn’t too big of a deal to have it there. If these was my house and not an apartment I would probably choose to mount the Netgear to the wall as it is designed to be wall mountable. That would clear space and make cabling somewhat easier. It could be mounted behind or beside the desk depending on how much one needs to access it or to watch its front panel.

Question by nitrous: How can I securely set up my wireless router?
I just purchased a Linksys WRT54G2 Wireless Router. Problem is that it only came with a quick setup guide and there is no actual manual. How can I set it up and ensure the maximum security of my information?

Answer by 1uk3
Linksys routers are set up pretty well out of the box so you shouldn’t need to worry.

As long as you are using a key to connect wireless devices you should be fine.

If you don’t feel confident with the security of your network, you could always purchase one of Cisco’s brilliantly simple Network Magic programs. I can recommend Network Magic Pro and Network Magic Essentials as I have used them myself at home with my Linksys WAG160N router. Great software! http://www.purenetworks.com/

    EA6300 uses EA6400 chipset temporarily (AC1600 inside the AC1200), May 4, 2013

    This review is from: Linksys EA6300 Advanced Multimedia AC1200 Smart WiFi Wireless Router (Dual-Band 2.4 + 5GHz 802.) (Personal Computers)


    See “Small Net Builder: A nice surprise for Early Linksys EA6300 Buyers”. This router (AC1200) is currently using the EA6400 chipset (a step down up from the true EA6300 chipset).

    From the article: “AC1200 routers provide a maximum 867 Mbps link rate in 5 GHz and 300 Mbps in 2.4; AC1600 has maximum link rates of 1300 Mbps in 5 GHz and 300 Mbps in 2.4 GHz”

    The reviews are out there. I recommend at least checking out SmallNetBuilder’s review of the EA6300/EA6400.

    EA6300(EA6400 Review), May 5, 2013

    This review is from: Linksys EA6300 Advanced Multimedia AC1200 Smart WiFi Wireless Router (Dual-Band 2.4 + 5GHz 802.) (Personal Computers)

    My Rating: 3.5 stars
    – Like said by the person before me, this item is currently being shipped as the EA6400 but with EA6300 packaging/labels.

    – Like the R6250 I tried, this has 2.4 GHz range that is a little on the poor side. I think it’s just REALLY sensitive to other networks on 2.4 GHz compared to other routers. The 2.4 GHz performance seemed ok though. The 5 GHz is about the same as the R6250 and maybe just a LITTLE bit shorter in range.

    – This router includes the newest Broadcom Dual Core CPU and USB 3.0 along with AC1600(300+1300 at the time).

    – The one thing I like about this router is that it has a real automatic channel changer unlike other routers that only choose the best channel on reboot and/or wireless restart. This actually changes the channel randomly while it’s running to pick the best. When no wireless clients are active it’ll constantly change channel every 30ish minutes or so and at times it’ll keep constantly searching every couple seconds.

    – This router is also quite big and needs a lot of space.

    – One thing I noticed though was that compared to other Linksys routers I saw/had in the past, this design runs A LOT cooler than the others.

    – At the time of this post, the EA6300 is selling as the EA6400(Which looks like the EA6500 except for the Cisco logo which doesn’t glow and there being a larger Linksys logo along with a green status light bar).

    Get your AC1600 router at an AC1200 router price while you can :p. Not sure how long it’ll last though.

    Update: I noticed that the 2.4 GHz range greatly improves when you turn the back of the router towards your devices. Kind of a weird antenna position :/.

    Also, I forgot to add that the power supply for this thing is huge and it doesn’t offer a plug that connects sideways. It blocks another plug on my surge protector from being used and it sticks out far from it. Out of all of the routers I tried over the past few months, this had the largest power plug and was the only one that didn’t offer a way to connect it sideways or another way.

    Update 2: I tried sending some packets to this router(Using Command Prompt) to test it and it began rebooting itself every 3 or so minutes.
    Update 3: The device list sometimes is a little slow to update and sometimes shows devices as “online” even when their not connected to the router. The Linksys app for this device is also very slow. There’s also no way to “secure” your guest network with a password other than a cafe style guest network or change it’s name other than”xxxxx-guest.”
    Update 4: Decided to run my HP 3050 Deskjet printer as it’s own wireless network. Was a little saddened to see that the HP had a slightly better range than this router.
    Update 4.2: I tested the range to compare. One side of the house had my 2wire 3801(From AT&T running wireless G) and the other side had this router running 2.4 GHz with N. I was a floor down and just slightly over to the left of the EA6300. The EA6300 had about 3/4 bars and the 2wire 3801 had 4/4 while the 2wire was still all the way on the other side of the house. Both were tried using the same channel. Out of all of the newer routers I tried, I would list the range in this order(From greatest to least range): Asus RT-65R(Amazing coverage), Belkin AC1200 ,Netgear R6250/Linksys EA6300, Western Digital N750.
    Update 4.3: The power supply has a short cord and may be a problem for some.
    Update 5: Let my router download over 5 GHz for about an hour and then it crashed again due to overheating. 5 GHz was refusing to reconnect for about 10 minutes after it rebooted itself . Now, I’m connected to 5 GHz but it’s not letting me use the internet over it and 2.4 GHz turned sluggish. I’ll see what happens when it cools back down. – Finally went back to normal
    Update 6: I forgot to mention that you cannot disable SSID broadcast(Even though it’s kind of worthless to do) and that this device has the default SSID of “Linksysxxxxx” where the x is the last 5 numbers of your serial number.
    Update 7: Router rebooted itself again today.
    Update 8: My 5 GHz band keeps popping in and out. It keeps popping in for about 3 seconds then drops out for about a minute long again and again when trying to be found.
    Update 9: Figured I would mention this: If you’re looking to force 40 MHz wireless on your router, you need to set the mode to “Wireless-N only” and leave channel width on “Auto.” I also forgot to mention that this router does NOT save your network password when you disable a band. If you need to enable a band again, you have to figure out whatever you password was before. This becomes quite an annoyance if you had a hard to remember/long password.

    Poor coverage and connectivity, June 25, 2013

    This review is from: Linksys EA6300 Advanced Multimedia AC1200 Smart WiFi Wireless Router (Dual-Band 2.4 + 5GHz 802.) (Personal Computers)

    Really not that good a router. As other note, it has surprisingly poor range for something that advertises itself as having great range.

    More importantly, it seems to be really easily interfered with: the first thing tech support do is tell you to give the 2.4 and 5 GHz different SSID IDs–suggesting that they know it isn’t going to work. Then they ask you if you have a microwave in house and ask you to hard code a specific 2.4 GHz channel (1, 6, or 11) rather than leave it on Auto.

    We have serious issues with wireless devices losing internet while remaining connected to the LAN–many times a day for a few seconds to tens of minutes. You often need to disconnect and reconnect to get internet again.

    I’m very disappointed in it. I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody.
