Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N Gigabit Router

 

The Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N Gigabit Router is basically the Draft N 2.0 version of the RangePlus WRT110 that we reviewed earlier this month. Bearing the same sleek, antenna-free design as the WRT110, the WRT310N offers two significant upgrades:...

Compact, antenna-free design; great range, unparalleled performance among Draft N routers.

Runs very hot; no USB-related features; a short one-year warranty.

Aside from its potentially worrisome heat output, the Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N Gigabit Router is a networking dynamo with chart-topping performance and a sleek (maybe too sleek) design.

The Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router's strong feature set provides almost everything you'd want for a small business seeking to support legacy 802.11b/g hardware as well as faster 802.11n clients.

Superior performance ; Deep routing features

No wireless range extension

We wish, though, that we could limit the filtering to certain computers: Lack of Java and cookie support will cripple the viewing of many Web sites. On the other hand, you can limit access to specific applications, URLs, and keywords on a PC-by-PC...

Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router WRT310N

 

Linksys says it put a considerable amount of customer consultation into the look of its brand-new WRT310N wireless gateway router, and it shows. Instead of a featureless cube, the company opted for the slightly "winged" look to give at least a hint of...

Easy config and network setup. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) support. Easy new configuration software. Good performance at 2.4 GHz

No support for 5-GHz operation

The WRT310N is the new look of Linksys home routers, including not just a sleek new case but a face and feature lift to its EasyLink Advisor setup and management software. The result is a pretty new home router at an attractive price, whose one large...

Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WRT310N)

 

The WRT310N exemplifies Linksys's new look for home routers. But even with a new design and a new software update, its 2.4-GHz-only operation may not appeal to everyone.

What differentiates the WRT310N wireless router from the less-expensive WRT160N is its faster built-in Ethernet switch, which is capable of supplying ...

Gigabit Ethernet switch, reliable 802.11 draft-n performance, LELA network utility

It's pricey (but worth it if you need the extra speed from the Gigabit switch)

Linksys attempts to make your life easy with the WRT310N, and it succeeds by making it a cinch to install, and by supplying the intuitive and useful network utility LELA. This router does cost more than its 10/100 stablemate, but if you need the extra...

Sleek looking but only works over shorter distances. Linksys routers have always been easy to use, especially the setup.

Good speeds at shorter distances ; Easy to setup

Concealed antennae reduce transfer speeds

This sleek router has great performance over shorter distances, but suffers a bit at long range. Linksys routers have always been easy to use.

Linksys WRT310N Ultra RangePlus: our new top pick wireless router

 

With its futuristic design, the WRT310N could live just as happily in your front room as it could next to your PC – at just 34mm high it's easy to hide. If you already have an ADSL modem, this is the pefect wireless router companion.

The Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N Gigabit Router bears the same sleek, antenna-free design as its sibling the WRT160N, except features a four port gigabit switch. We are a little disappointed at the lack of a USB port, which means it can't act as a print...

Do not buy complete wste of money

 

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

easy to install and only requires a small space

for the first month it worked great then starts frequently crashing once or more a month, you will have to constantly reboot it which can become very time consuming if the first rebot does not work, company will try to nickle and dime you if you call tech

Product Specifications

The Wireless-N Gigabit Router is really three devices in one box. First, there's the Wireless Access Point, which lets you connect to the network without wires. There's also a built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 Switch to connect your wired-Ethernet devices together. Finally, the Router function ties it all together and lets your whole network share a high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection. The Access Point built into the Router uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's "Multiple In, Multiple Out" (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area. The robust signal travels farther, maintaining wireless connections much farther than standard Wireless-G. With Wireless-N, the farther away you are, the more speed advantage you get. It works great with standard Wireless-G and -B equipment, but when both ends of the wireless link are Wireless-N, the router can increase the throughput even more by using twice as much radio band, yielding speeds far faster than standard Wireless-G. But unlike other speed-enhanced technologies, Wireless-N can dynamically enable this double-speed mode for Wireless-N devices, while still connecting to other wireless devices at their respective fastest speeds. In congested areas, the "good neighbor" mode ensures that the Router checks for other wireless devices in the area before gobbling up the radio band. To help protect your data and privacy, the Router can encode all wireless transmissions with industrial-strength 256-bit encryption. It can serve as your network's DHCP Server, has a powerful SPI firewall to protect your PCs against intruders and most known Internet attacks, and supports VPN pass-through. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility. The incredible speed of Wireless-N makes it ideal for media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and Voice over IP telephony, and gives you plenty of headroom to run multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no degradation in performance. With the Linksys Wireless-N Gigabit Router at the center of your home or office network, you can share a high-speed Internet connection, files, printers, and multi-player games, and run media-intensive applications at faster than 10/100 wired network speeds, without the hassle of stringing wires!
