Have had this for a long time, and it still works perfectly. Originally got it to use with a Sprint 3G data card to have a high speed internet source and wireless network in one unit. Now usit only as a wireless router. With changes in technology, this b/g router is rapidly being replaceed by b/g/n/A-C routers, so will probably be going that way eventually.

It took a bit of googling for me to find the right configuration information that I needed, but the router works just fine for me. I use a Sierra Wireless AirCard 881 on AT&T. I'm actually getting my 3G signal via a zBoost repeater (available on Amazon.com), which brings the strong signal from up at my rooftop to the downstairs of my home and re-broadcasts it. (I've digressed momentarily, but this might be another useful product for some readers.)

I will say that I'm unimpressed by the fact that there hasn't been a firmware update in over two years. The router lacks some of the fundamental advanced features found in the majority of routers today. For instance, it doesn't provided IP address reservations using DHCP. But for the "typical" home network, I'd say that it fits the bill.

Occasionally, I will lose my 3G signal (as others have reported). However, I've confirmed (in my situation) that this is due to problems with the provider's tower. I can take my iPhone out in the yard and easily confirm the presence or absence of a 3G signal. The router hasn't let me down yet for the better part of a year.

With this router, I use an Actiontec MegaPlug A/V 200 Mbps Powerline Network Adapter (another great product available on Amazon.com), which connects to a switch in my media cabinet. To the switch I have connected my Yamaha receiver, my Panasonic TV, my DirecTV receiver, and my Airport (which lets me stream audio from my PC to my receiver) - all of which utilize the Internet connection and/or other network devices via this router.

With no cable or DSL options in my neck of the woods, this setup has been a real blessing to me.

Great Product, as expected from Linksys!!! I have owned this wireless router since signing up for Sprint Mobile Broadband. No issues since day one. At first I setup the router without any security. After a few months I decided, it was time to add encryption. So I went thru the setup again and made it WEP. Again no problem! I recommend this product. I have the Novatel Merlin S720 Mobile Broadband Card. Hope you have the same experience I did!

I am no computer geek, but with some help from my computer-geek brother I was able to set up my home network so that I get great internet service through Sprint!

I DONT HAVE CABLE OR DSL WHERE I LIVE SO I USE A SPRINT MOBILE BROADBAND CARD. I BOUGHT THIS TO SHARE MY INTERNET THROUGH OUT MY HOME AND IT WORKS GREAT FOR WIRED ONLY DEVICES. THE WIRELESS G KEEPS GOING IN AND OUT EVEN WHEN YOU'RE WITHIN 5' FROM IT OR ANYWHERE ELSE. I USE THE S720 CARD AND IT SEEMS JUST AS FAST AS DSL OR BETTER.
