Summary: Build quality very good,wi-fi range is excellent.Software is provided so can be controlled from Mac or Windows PC and lynksys is renown for providing top notch security.Online support is excellent too.
Summary: I just got this today, set-up took 10 mins (had to find a wireless dongle for my PC to make it easer), I did have a BT HH 4. Its been working for about 1.5 hours now. I did some test before and after I installed the X3500. I used ID userd = email@example.com --- password=BT PS3 wireless internet test 20 FT and 1 glass conservatory door away.
Summary: Despite many negative reviews I chose to take a chance on it. So far I have an excellent experience. Usual CISCO's easy to navigate setting up options and (so far) flawless performance is a delight. Another distinguishing mark is X3500's feature richness. My two old Linksys products, EA6500 and WAG325N were also very good in the beginning but after a couple of years of use, started to drop connection. I hope X3500 does better.
