Summary: Needed to update a previous DSL Modem to include WPA2 security. Intuitive setup wizard - had no problem recognizing the parameters of my qwest/centurylink ADSL connection. Extra power helps fill up the house better - I was able to move my Wireless N-Repeater further away and now there appear to be no dead zones throughout the house
You will not be disappointted with this modem/router

Summary: Worked out of the box, for the most part. I had to upgrade the firmware to get my iMac to be able to keep a connection, but even for a non-technical person, it was pretty easy. My CD did not work but the website got me going. The signal range is much better than my 2-wire from ATT. Overall a great product.
Summary: Worked like a charm, straight out of the box. Removed my old router and DSL and put this in place. Gave the same SSID name for the wireless network, ALL DEVICES connected without a HITCH. Called the Phone company and asked them for my password (had forgotten it). Put the user name password in the modem. Did not connect at first.. (I did not know some config values, what to put in them).
An excellent product, easy to "plug and play" with a minimum of fuss.

Summary: This is a great modem. Lot's of punch, easy to set up (both WAP wireless and via Ethernet cable). Highly recommended for ADSL1 and/or ADSL2 connections. I had not trouble with bandwidth, IP address clashes or anything else. It's two (2) ariels make for excellent coverage too and for this reason alone you must ensure you password-protect the wireless or 1/2 your suburb will be tapping into your bandwidth!
