LinkSys Wireless-N ADSL2+ Gateway Review

Like the Netgear RangeMax router, the Wireless-N router from LinkSys has a handy slimline design that lets you stand it on its side so that it doesn’t take up too much space. We also liked the fact that it showed up on our Mac’s Airport menu the moment we plugged it in, so there was no need to muck about with Ethernet cables in order to set the router up.

OUR VERDICT

The Wireless-N was marred by its lack of decent software or manual for Mac users. The installation software on the CD only works on PCs, so Mac users are left to wing it on their own. You can connect to the router’s built-in web page easily enough, but this is full of technical jargon and settings that will confuse anyone who isn’t fairly knowledgeable about networks. So, poor Mac support scuppers another router’s chances.
