The below noted mandatory upgrade & required cloud mgmt has been done away with & is Now in the past, hence all these newly issued "refurb" units.
"For those that don't know, recently, Cisco rolled out a silent firmware "upgrade" to all devices. As part of the "upgrade", all users were then forced to sign up for a Cisco cloud management account, as the new firmware disabled the ability to locally manage the device. What Cisco didn't openly mention, was that the new cloud management software was logging all web history through the router, and that every web page you looked at was being logged off site. Additionally, according to the new terms of the forced "update", Cisco could close your cloud account, thus rending your router useless, if any user on the router ever looked at pornography, or any obscene sites, which was up to Cisco to determine. Yes, that is right, they took over everyone's router, and then decided to dictate what the end user looks at. Clearly Cisco is a shady company that can't be trusted, and thus I would encourage everyone to boycott all Cisco products. We need to send them a message that this type of behavior is unacceptable. Search for the Ars Technica article tilted "Freeing your router from Cisco's anti-porn, pro-copyright cloud service" for more information."
"Freeing your router" = allow me to be enslaved to porn. Just an fyi people, "freedom" as defined today is an illusion. You are enslaved to something. The original meaning of "freedom" was the ability to choose who/what you are enslaved to.
- Freedom may be a value, a belief, or a doctrine. It is not an illusion. Nor does taking the router I paid for off of another person's value system, regardless of what that value system is, constitute enslavement to anything. -duenor
A side note: Aside from what is already mentioned in this wiki, it must be noted that Cisco's customer support and customer service is very poor. Long wait times, they try to sell you unnecessary "service" even when item is under warranty, they refuse to acknowledge that the router is under warranty even if you have receipt, outsourced support have no idea what the hell is going on, and they charge full price when processing RMA exchange. Absolutely no such thing as customer service at CISCO anymore. They used to be good, but their downfall is obvious in their stock history.
Use code HSDISH5 for $2 off. Coupon code is Dish Customer code from thread for New Cisco Wireless Router and Bridge[http] (credit where credit is due). - Didn't see coupon up above.... But there it is!
Interesting price. These were only released a few months ago. Really nothing special here. The more expensive versions have dlna support. I think the higher mbps requires a compatible card, but I'm not sure.
