Summary: Bought it based on earlier reviews. Bought 2 and put 1 of each on DD-WRT and also Tomato, both works flawlessly. Did take a bit of time to find out what to use, make sure you get the right firmware.
Pros: Can install Linux based Router Firmware like DD-WRT and Tomato
Cons: Signal is a bit weaker but so far nothing wrong
Excerpt: directions clear. Unit in place & functioning in a very short time. A design that showed lights on front of unit would help when checking status of connection lights. Very helpful service personnel.
Summary: Can't ask much for a cheap 2.4GHz router. Bought 2 of these to use as a wireless client and repeater. Once I loaded Tomato on it, I realized the antennas or wireless receiver is weaker/lower quality than in the WRT160N and Valet M10 that I have. It still picks up the wireless signals fine, but it's about 4dB weaker than the other 2. Transmit power doesn't matter though, since I can crank it up using Tomato or DD-WRT.
Pros: Cheap, wireless n 300. Can load tomato or dd-wrt.
Cons: Not gigabit ports. Wish it was dual-band but for this price, not gonna happen.
Excerpt: I bought this router to replace a similar one but different brand. It was so simple to install and works perfectly. The price was modest, which is definitely a plus. I wish I had bought this one before I spent close to a hundred dollars on the other brand.

Excerpt: This router was very easy to set up, and I now have a wireless connection to my smartphone in my home. However, I was unable to get the router to work with my net book - user's fault, I am sure!
