Summary: Bought this model because it was listed as being compatible with the new DirecTV system. Works like a charm and has better range than the Linksys that it replaced (in fairness, it was > 5 years old).
Excerpt: Super Router WOW! Replaced my old Netgear N300 because it started to fail, now my speed is back up over 50 mbps! I get gigabit speed for my desktops which my old router didn't have. Cann't go wrong with this one.
Summary: The dual band router works very well, and was a much needed upgrade to our 4 year old router. Very easy to setup and manage, I would definitely recommend this to anyone in need of a strong/affordable router. The 5Ghz works well and has a better range in my house than I was led to believe it would.
