Summary: This was easy setup and works flawless. I am on Dishnet internet and the carrier suggested this as one of the better routers for the system. My old router kicked offline and this one does not. Very happy with this for the past few months.
Summary: Still a solid value for a budget router. Just take your time and use care if your Ethernet cables take a lot of squeeze force to compress the tang enough to unplug them. Use a small implement to compress the tang without flexing the RJ45 jack and circuit board.
Pros: I've bought maybe 6 of these over the last few years. For my purposes, we kept WiFi disabled for maximum security, so I can mainly say the wired capabilities work as expected.
Cons: I've had three of these fail when I was unplugging the Ethernet cables to do some reconfiguration. The RJ45 jacks are recessed a bit, so when trying to squeeze the plugs to disengage them, I guess I flex the jacks enough to break something in there. No lights, no power, another dead WNR1000.
Summary: We could not get it to work; have to have a $75.00 service call. It turn out the new router now has a new passphase. The directions for easy insulation did not mention that . Me extender network also needed reprograming. The N router did not improve my connection any.
