Summary: It worked after we called the company to figure out how to set it up. Dish network had no idea how to help us and there weren't any directions on how to set it up sent with. It was a challenge.
Reliable with an easy setup - but poor Wi-Fi signal range

Summary: This router is cheap and will provide you with good wired speed, but if you're looking for a great Wi-Fi connection, you may want to look elsewhere unless you live in a studio apartment. I have a pretty small place, and in the next room, I will often be reduced to 1 bar of wi-fi. It does not support dual-band either. The internal antennae is fairly weak, so if you're looking for a decent signal strength, you may not get it.
Summary: Says its DD-WRT Ready BUT.... The version I received was V2 and on the DD-WRT Router Database page the V2 is currently not authorized as being supported. The Database says its "WIP" Work In Progress DD-WRT being a work in progress for this modem was extremely disappointing.
This WNR1000v3 Router is not as fast as the previous v2 model, until you make a change to the default router setup.

Summary: When I bought the WNR1000v3 model, I expected it to be at least as fast as the WNR1000v2 model that I have been using for years. Not so. The v3 router is about 20% slower then the v2. I have changed settings on both the router and the adapter on my PC and nothing I have tried will bring the wireless mode up to the same speed as the wired connection. On the v2 model it would run at the same speed regardless of wired or wireless connection. UPDATE!
Summary: Home is under 1000 sqft. with few electronics/appliances and leave the microwave unplugged unless in so it's not an interference issue. Only get "good" (3-4 bars) ANYWHERE in the house, including being less than one ft from router. 2nd time my order has been change from "free shipping" to "3 day" AFTER CLICK SUBMIT ORDER BUTTON. I'm sure this has happened to others as well.
Pros: Works well enough for my needs.
Cons: Weak signal; although not a problem for me - see below.
