Stephanie Sullivan HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE 4.0 out of 5 starsAverage Wireless N Performer in 2008, Newer Models Much Better & Getting Security UpdatesDecember 8, 2017Verified PurchaseI got this WRT160N almost 10 years ago and it served reasonably well in my Brothers home and then as a backup/testing router. Even when it came out it was not particularly special just a basic wireless N router on 2.4Ghz only. Range is so-so, enough to cover an average small home well.Bottom line is in 2017 this is a very dated router. If you are buying one now get as newer model. Compatibility with older standards should not be a problem and newer models are still getting firmware updates including for security issues which recent problems in wireless protocols.I’m giving this reliable but average performer (in 2008) 4 stars. It worked fine in production and then as a diagnostic tool when troubleshooting router/cable modem problems or as a temporary backup for a failed router. Buying a router now? Get a current model, not this dated unit.Read more 3 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuseBrian Nilsen3.0 out of 5 starsWorks great except for intermittent DNS issuesMarch 13, 2013Verified PurchaseUsually, this router works just fine. I use it to support a number of devices in my home and have never had a problem with it dropping connections. The big problem is with its DNS caching. Google ‘WRT106N DNS issues’ and you’ll find some threads on Linksys/Cisco’s website about this. This was never fixed in the latest firmware and continues to be an issue.You’ll most likely set this router up to use DHCP, so that it automatically assigns an address and some other information to any device that connects to it. When you do this, it will assign itself as the first DNS server to anything that connects, with your actual DNS servers second and third. Sometimes its DNS cache gets corrupted, which will start sending you to random websites. IE, last night when I tried to go to Google, it was sending me to static.ak.facebook.com. Resetting the router generally clears this up, but it’s pretty irritating when it happens.There is no way to configure the router not to set itself as the first DNS server when using DHCP. What you can do on a PC is to set the DNS servers manually, which fixes the issue. However, I have yet to find a way to do that on our phones, tablets, or other devices (like Tivos), so they’re basically stuck with this problem.As I mentioned, it can be fixed by restarting the router, and it often fixes itself over time. What’s frustrating is that this has been a known issue for this router for many years and Linksys/Cisco do not appear to be willing to do anything about it.It’s fine for what it is, and if you can find it cheap, it’ll do the job. There are better routers out there for similar money that won’t have these same issues, though.Read more 2 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuseWhere the Sidewalk Ends4.0 out of 5 starsWorks best after you do a firmware updateMay 20, 2011Verified PurchaseI’ve bought and installed 3 of these over the past 2 years. The first I bought for my home 2 years ago, the second I ordered and installed for a friend who wanted one like mine, and the third I ordered and installed a week ago for a family member.The router has issues when used prior to doing the most recent needed firmware updates. All 3 routers, bought at different times over the last 2 years needed to have the updates loaded. Without them, the wireless speeds are slower, connections can be finicky and there is a strange bug these routers suffer from that causes them to have DNS issues (you can read about it on the Cisco-Linksys forums where hundreds of other people have had this issue).After the firmware update however, there is an immediate improvement in speeds and connectivity is not just no longer an issue, but even stronger than ever. Where before it seemed like a 50-50 chance if you could even get someone logged into your wireless network. Now after the update, it’s simple and works every single time. Step by step directions on how to do this update can be found on the Linksys website.Read more 6 people found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuseErik J. Malvick4.0 out of 5 starsA Good Midrange RouterSeptember 28, 2011Verified PurchaseI purchased this router to replace a previous Linksys Wireless-G router that had gone on the fritz.While this new router looks sleek, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of its performance. The device definitely looks like it had gone the way of the cheap build of Netgear devices, and I worried that it would last as long as the router I was replacing (seems everything is getting disposable these days).Fortunately, my skepticism is wrong.This router has been a fantastic replacement only making me regret I didn’t replace my old router sooner. I worried a bit about its lack of antenna, but the range isthe same if not better when I look at it in G mode (all of my devices are G-mode devices) compared to the previous router. Unfotunately, the power seems a little weaker, but not enough to really affect my use as I am on a 6MPBs Internet connection that really isn’t affected by my computerworking at a little less than its 54 MBPs rating. Fortunately, I do get the full power for my streaming devices, which are probably most network intensive.The setup of the router is 1000 times better than what I remember with my previous device. I remember having a hard time as the previous router required a wired computer, and my ISP’s tricky method of sending an IP address that essentially matches the default most routers used made that old router take 8 hours to set-up and a lot of customer support calls, hacking, etc to change the address of the router (a Linksys flaw at that time).Fast forward a few years, and the device and its software essentially self-set itself without needing a direct computer connection. The software Linksys provides is likely adequate for most home users, although limits the ability to customize things. Fortunately, most customization can still be obtained by browsing directly to the router, and all of the typical cutomizable features (security, ports, etc) are there.The router has now run for nearly a year with only one drop-out. The only issue I’ve had (and it isn’t a bad one) is the firewall can sometimes throw a fit and not let one of my devices through when its on. Apparently, that device when updated changes its signature enough that I need to open the firewall to let it in and then unblock its port before resetting the firewall. This is a bit of a hassle that I can’t really blame directly on the router or the device (probably a bit of both).Ultimately, I think this device is good enough for what it does. It is the middle of the road model that doesn’t interfere with my phone lines and will likely last longer for me than its predecessor did.Read more One person found this helpful Helpful Comment Report abuseSee all 844 reviewsWrite a customer review Set up an Amazon Giveaway Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
