The X3000 directly connects you to the internet wirelessly - no separate DSL modem required. It can also act as a wireless router by connecting the Ethernet WAN port to a cable modem.

The Linksys X3000 connects your computers, wireless printers and other Wi-Fi devices at wireless transfer rates up to 300 Mbps. The MIMO antenna technology provides broad coverage so you can enjoy your wireless network from anywhere in your home.

You can use the four Gigabit Ethernet ports for quick file sharing, 10x faster than standard Ethernet, between other Gigabit-enabled devices like computers, hard drives, and servers. The StorageLink USB port lets you add storage devices to your network to share files wirelessly throughout your home. The built-in UPnP AV media server enables media streaming to your Xbox 360, PS3, or other UPnP compatible devices.

I'm quite pissed with this router. Firstly, there is no Cisco connect app for OS X Lion (I'm using a Mac). The instruction booklet was very sparse, so I booted up a separate Windows PC just to run the Cisco connect app. After setup, everything seemed OK and working fine. But when I switched off the router and reboot it, I cannot connect to internet even though all the lights on the router are lighted up (FYI I gave it an ample 20 minutes before I tried to access the internet).

When I go to, under Status->Router, I found that the PPPoE is shown as "Connecting". For 20 minutes??? I rebooted the router another 4 times, and seems like a miracle, it suddenly connected and obtained and IP with my ISP!

Next day, same thing happened. Once I switched off the router, it is unable to connect to the ISP for a long time. I rebooted quite a few times before by some strange reason, it connected.

Tried to highlight this issue to a Cisco chat support. I was told to flash the firmware to latest version and reset the router and try again. I did it, but the problem still persists!

Buy this router at your own risk!

I have been using this model for the last 3 months, and have had no problems. Great range, even downstairs which I wasn't getting with my previous Dlink. Have plugged in a USB Harddrive for network storage that was easy. Recomend downloading the Cisco Connect App, as being able to control from my iPhone made it more functional.

today mine brand new one, after a week of perfect work, has suddenly reset by itself and now is not possible to access it anymore by also after resetting further to original settings and default password. so no dsl connection.
i guess it's dead. if i'm not able to fix it i guess i'll change it with another model and brand. :-(
