Customer Reviews:

  • Linksys broadband router really works
    The WRT54G3G just works as advertised. I was setting up a small office for a non-profit and they couldn't afford to pay commercial rates for Internet access. They are pretty excited that I cut their cost in at least half for Internet access....more info
  • router problems
    This product did NOT work as advertised and I had to return it for a refund, which I did. Sadly, I did not recover the shipping/handling costs and I felt a bit discouraged that the product was not what I needed despite the reassurances that it was the correct item....more info
  • Mobile 3G Router
    This item worked perfect right out of the box. Install was exceptionally. Worked perfect with the Sierra card. Was up & running in 20 min. Perfect fit for a rural non-cable area.

  • Wirless Router Works Great!
    I needed a way to use my PC Internet Card on my MacBook Pro. The Linksys router was the solution. I carry the router in my computer bag. Whenever, I set up my Mac away from home, I plug in my router, and I have internet anywhere that I can get mobile phone reception....more info
  • Works Great RTFM on the CD forst
    Router setup was easy but it really helps to read the manual on the CD first. The router does work with a non-listed card the Option GT Max 3.6 (non-express model). Make sure your card firmware is up to date and update the router firmware once you get it connected. Router security is clearly explained on CD Just read and follow the instructions and make sure to secure your router and your wireless signal....more info
  • great for mobile access...
    I use this router in an RV and at a mountain house were installing dsl is not cost effective. Nice to have mobile wifi when multiple clients require internet access. Set up via start up disk did not work but configuration via web interface was easy and feature rich. Recommend an external antenna for use with AirCard to improve cellular reception and backhaul speeds....more info
  • Wireless router for broadband aircard
    It took me some effort to get it up and running. Seems my aircard was too old and thus not supported by the router. I upgraded my AT&T aircard to a newer version and now my wireless network is working fine....more info
  • AWESOME product!
    I'll start by saying I'm an IT guy, so I may be biased....
    That being said, if you have setup any wireless router before, this is not much different. Verify your laptop card works just plugged into a laptop before you get started. Setup is not much harder than running the included CD and plugging in a few wires. GREAT product, been working for many months without any problems. I think I have had to reboot it twice, but it is not a regular occurrence, and not any better worse than the other linksys wireless routers I have used in the past.

    Highly recommend this product if you want to share your AT&T laptop card connection....more info
  • Linksys Wireless-G Router for ATT&T, good product.
    This is an excellent product. I live in an area where DSL or cable are unavailable. I have to use dial-up for internet access for the past 6 years until now when I have 3G signals from AT&T arround my house. I got an AirCard 881 from ATT and set-up my LAN with this router. Now, all my computers (2 desktops and 2 laptops) in my household are able to access internet at high speed. The download speed is comparable to that of DSL. The set-up is easy and straight forward, and only takes less than 5 minutes. ...more info
  • Came fast
    It was sent very fast and product worked straight out the box. But the Cd is worthless. Just go to their website when connected with cable and set up the password there. The product was very affordable on the net compared to in the store....more info
  • Works Great
    All I did was plugged in my AT&T aircard and powered up the router. I instantly had 3G broadband internet throughout the house. I have only had the unit for a few weeks but it has been working flawlessly at all times....more info
  • WRT54G3G Router
    This product works very well AFTER you update the firmware on the AT&T/Cingular card. Then it is plug and play it didn't work without the updated firmware. The instructions could have been better but over all I am pleased with the performance of the router....more info
  • Works on AT&T network in the US.
    This router will work with the Sierra AirCard 875 on the AT&T network.
    It has a problem delivering full 3G speed however. I cannot get over
    900Kb/sec even when parked 400 ft. from the tower. Plugged into the computer, I get 2.8Mb/sec speed, same location.

    The problems people are having getting this router to work on an AirCard 875 is that they must set the router up *before* inserting the aircard.
    The "APN" entries must be entered correctly for proper operation. Choose "Custom" for your entries. There are two entries that must be made correctly, one is "ISP.CINGULAR" if you were a Cingular customer, and the other is the logon username; "WEP@CINGULAR.COM." If these two settings are correct, save settings, unplug router, inset AirCard, re-power router and all will work correctly. The firmware revision number of the AirCard is of no consequence as I updated my firmware to the Australian 7.2Mb/sec version with no change in performance or connectivity problems. The 4 port switch section performs at 100Mb/sec just as advertised. This router can be configured as an internet backup. A person with DSL or cable can connect that signal to the "internet" port in back of the router and it will route that source. If the DSL or cable fails, it will automatically switch to the AirCard. This router auto-disconnects the AirCard in a 'non-use' time you select, and will auto-connect on demand. This takes care of AT&T's rule against maintaining an "always on" connection (forbidden).
    "IMPORTANT" If you were using your AirCard 875 in a notebook/laptop computer... The last speed/network setting you used will remain in the AirCard! If you were using the "Edge" network and then plug AirCard into the router, it will only connect to the Edge network! Select 3G in your laptop before removing the card for use in the router! (if you have 3G available, otherwise , leave set to what works in your area).

    I know I went on a bit here, but someone with an AirCard 875 may question purchasing this router if they don't know first that it WILL work, and how to make it work because right out of the box, it won't work. You must enter your provider particulars first!

    Linksys has a good reputation for making quality products and this is no exception. I would buy it again.

  • Linksys Wireless G Router
    If you live in a remote area without cable or dsl, this is what you need to solve your dial up problems. Couple this with a wireless card from your cell provider. Place it in you house where your signal is strongest and you will have high speed wirless all over your house. After years of having no options other than dial up this is a godsend....more info

  • T-mobile @Home Service startup PROBLEMS (at home)
    I have just spent 2 hours on the phone with t-mobile just to find out that the router they supplied me from Linksys is defective. This is a known problem apparently. Mind you, most of the waiting was from holding, and getting disconnected.

    I got a t-mobile @HOME router, and it was defective right out of the box. Voice errors codes on the LINKSYS WRTU54G-TM.


    J0011.0 Network busy. Retry. (Router attempts connection every 2 minutes)
    ----Removed SIM and inserted to GSM phone, and made a test call. Worked fine. Reinserted SIM into router and then the following error code.----

    J0012.4 Failed to connect. Location unknown. (Only 1 attempt to connect by Router)

    I went through t-mobile's troubleshooting information online which was absolutely useless.

    Power cycled. Re-ran install CD for router multiple times. I ran my connection from INTERNET -> Router -> Tmobile Router -> laptop. I also tried, INTERNET -> T-mobile Router -> laptop. I thought it might have been a issue with have 2 routers, but that was not the case.

    No blue LED light worked for either Line 1 or Line 2 when a phone line was plugged into the router. "Rep at LINKSYS said "It's really hard getting that blue LED light on" The light should just turn on if the SIM is activated, router on, internet on.

    I called t-mobile yesterday at 5pm, and it was a 40 minute wait time to talk to someone at the @HOME tech support. I called again at 930pm, and it was a 3hr wait time. They leave an option for them to call you back if you leave them a call back number. I wait 3 hours, and call at 1230am, and t-mobile is closed.

    I get a 3 phone calls from t-mobile at 5am (7 minute intervals) while I am sleeping form their automated system. When you call you get transferred from the customer service, then to the @home service, and then finally to someone at an outsourced customer service at LINKSYS. I called when they just opened, and it took 20 minutes to get transferred to LINKSYS. Can you imagine what the wait time is like during peak hours?

    LINKSYS troubleshoot is just to update the firmware, which did not fix anything. I get a reference # to get an exchange.

    The best part is I am not the account holder, this is for my parents account who speak very little English. So t-mobile wont notify the store that my parents need to exchange the router. Privacy issues.

    1st call - She wont even transfer me to the @home department because it's not my account. I told her that I have already called t-mobile numerous times and have been transferred to that department with no problem. That I've been on the phone for 2hours with t-mobile. Won't transfer.

    "Leticia at t-mobile, go **** yourself."

    2nd call - Transfers me to @home. @Home tells me they can't do the exchange cause I am not the account holder.

    3rd call. Won't transfer me until I verify ALL my information. I verify the information for the Dad (who is on the account) and since I don't know my Mom's (primary) last four of her SS#, they put me on hold for 5 minutes.

    So I am sitting here with a defective router, no land line phone service, and everyone has already left for work. So once I get my Dad to exchange the router after 5pm, I pray to God that is works and I wont have to call t-mobile.

    T-mobile sucks, and their customer service is sub par. Teach your employee's to have a little empathy. I would tell my parents to switch services, but my Dad wants your cheap VOIP, if it ever works. But I will never use your services EVER, recommend to my friends never to sign-up for t-mobile, and copy and paste this rant all over the internet for all to see. ...more info
