Pros: Configuration screens very intuitive, easy to setup. Ability to isolate wireless guest from rest of network. Gigabit speed for moving files around the house! Wireless N is more than enough for our normal home usage. Strong signal all through the house. Handles IP reservation by MAC and DDNS updates too!
Cons: A bit on the pricey side, but I caught it on sale with a rebate.
Summary: Happy with the router. Compatible with Exede satellite internet. External USB drive works well connected to this router's USB port through ReadyShare. This has been an issue with others routers I have owned. No connectivity issues through any of the ports.
Summary: Needed a wireless router that would work well with my Satellite Internet. My wishes were answered finally. This router provides the coverage and bandwith it promised and more. No dropped internet connection ..
Pros: The range is a lot better than the previous wireless N router I had that was 3 years old. Even my PS Vita picks up a signal from the bedroom a good distance away (Vita has a horrible wireless antenna. I used to have to be in the same room with the router to get a signal).
Cons: I have to reboot the router at least 3-5 times a week as none of my devices frequently cannot connect to the internet. This was not a problem before using this router with the same cable modem and it just happens at random. I'm very aggravated and about ready to throw the thing out of the window.
Summary: Lack of ability to control some of the more granular features of wireless, such as transmit power, 20/40/Auto, and explicit way to limit to N-only or B/G variants are not there. That may not matter to you at all, and it's not a deal-breaker for me. I think the MAC Access Filtering is somewhat obscurely labelled as "Card Access Control".
Pros: Compact. External antennas really make a difference, especially with N access points. I have one N access point with internal antennas. Its range and throughput are radically lower. Range on this unit seems good, especially when a floor above it vs. at the other end of the house. It's not quite as good as a 3-antenna AP I have, but it's good.
Cons: Cons: I was getting slow throughput until I disabled the "20/40 Coexistence" check box. That's not a really obvious solution. Also, N is only on 2.4GHz band. Not a con, but you should know that.
