Summary: I would not recommend this router. we have issue after issue with this router. It would connect and stay connected for a short time then disconnected an reconnect again. We purchased another and had the same issues.
Summary: Trying to decide whether to keep researching why it wont stay up and running, or just return it and try for another. I can't figure it out, neither can my provider. Only responds for about half an hour at first try after the entire system has been down overnight.
Summary: I don't actually own this router. I was asked to troubleshoot why our software wasn't working at this school. I checked and found that when pinging the router they would loose packets or get 2000-4000ms reply times. Router was directly upstairs and was mounted on the wall.
Pros: Interface is what is expected. I like routers that have diagnostic tools (ping/trace) build into them.
Cons: VERY directional. If your receiving computer is looking at the router's edge ping times and lost packets will be very high.
Summary: I got this one because it's only 20 bucks. It turns out to be useless. First couple of weeks it works ok. Then it starts being so unstable, i.e. I received no internet signal for a whole minute straight for every friggin 10 minutes..
Summary: If you don't need wireless connectivity the $20.00 is about right. It almost works for wireless but if you are paying for higher speeds with cable you will not like this thing. wont be disapointed when it bricks and am forced to get something else.
Pros: The blue lights won,t blind you.
Cons: If you get it to connect wirelessly it is really slow, like 6mbs with a windows 7 computer 20 ft away and one interior wall. Can get 15 to 18 mbs on a windows XP laptop setting 2 ft away with no obstructions. This is with a 48 to 54 mbs feed from a new Motorola cable modem that if wired directly ...
Summary: Update: I've been using this router for a few weeks now. The DHCP Server on it is very sketchy, I'm not sure why this is. I've updated the firmware on it, and yet several devices are having trouble connecting without a static ip configuration. You get what you pay for.
