Summary: I chose this rating as it's a good router if you want it as your main access point but that's all you can do with it. It's not set up if you want to bridge it to your main wireless connection to spread the signal over your house. You can't upgrade it on DD-WRT website, it's not supported.
Summary: Router works great with very good range and the setup to get it working on my desktop machine(Windows2000) & my notebook(XP) couldn't be easier. However, enabling security is almost impossible without calling support. And I had to go through 4 different support techs to get it worked out.
Summary: I have found this unit to provide an always solid connection, it's range isn't as good as others, but it isn't bad. This unit however, does not work well in area of interference. When I first got the unit it would drop signal periodically, as soon as I bought a dect 6 phone to replace my 5.4g phone...
Summary: I have been using one of these for several years, with no problems. I would like to note, however, that the connection speed is always 54 Mbps (wireless-G speed), whether the connecting device is wireless-N or wireless-G. So forget the 300 Mbps allegation.
Easy to setup, limited utility software, not support IPv6

Summary: I have owned this product for a few years already. I bought it in Oct 2006 but it stopped working after a thunderstorm night in May 2008; I guess it was shocked by lightning somehow (but there was no physical abnormal or damage).
Summary: This is a great overall wirless router. But, however the Pre-N concept is still a debate as the Pre-N capabilities have still yet to be approved into the IEEE standard. I can use this as a general wireless router, but I could not get the unit to work out of the box for extended long range use.
