Man, I was really disappointed tonight... I used to be a fan of Linksys. Tonight, changed my opinion of them dramatically. It wasn't difficult to set up, etc.. just a couple of things that 1. was a minor annoyance, and 2. was extremely annoying. My sister moved out a couple months ago, and finally got DSL at her place, so I took her PC over there to get set up. A couple days ago, she ordered a Linksys WRT54GS2 router. It got here today, so I went over to set up her connection. First, regarding the DSL setup. It was a piece of cake. Different than my last experience w/ AT&T, which turned out to be such a problem because of a big gaff on AT&T's part. Had her computer online in about 10min, made sure the connection was working, etc. Insert the Linksys CD to use the automatic setup, come to the first step. "Replace current router" or "Install in combination with another router"... Well, I wasn't replacing one, and I didn't need to install it in combination of another one. So I chose replacing, went through the steps, didn't work. So I cleared all the IP's and what not, made sure I was working again via just the modem, and started over, this time choosing to install "in combination". Before you ask, the modem she got from AT&T, was just a modem, it was not a modem/router. Go through the process, which appears to be working this time, Then (and this is what really honked me off) it starts installing all this crap on the computer, despite me checking NO, I don't want it. Home Network monitoring software, some folder sharing app, Norton trial, etc. Which of course were free, but kept popping up on the desktop to upgrade to the Pro version. So I uninstalled them, and these "helper apps" and the freakin connection stopped working. Tried to log into the router, no joy. So I reset everything, and start over, and it still installs those stupid apps, despite me telling it not to. Finally got irritated, uninstalled the junkware, and setup the router w/o the walkthrough CD (which I probably should have done from the beginning). After that, it was smooth sailing. I've always thought Linksys had a better "router management" interface than Netgear, but they both work equally well. Setting up WPA2, etc.. was no problem. What the heck happened to Linksys.. I can deal w/ minor installation issues, but installing the bloatware really irritated me. IGF Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
