Summary: I bought this product with the WRT600N dual-band gigabit router with storage link (the gigabit router had its own issues - I will write another review for it). The media center extender locked up consistently or would lose its connection to the network (using 2.4 Ghz band on the WRT600N as the WRT600N didn't seem to be able to handle both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz devices operating simultaneously).
Summary: Linksys has decided not to patch the firmware to work with Windows 8. I repeat. This product does not work with Windows 8 so if you have it or intend to upgrade in the future do not buy this product.
