Summary: I originally bought one of these routers 2 years ago. One day it just stopped working. I thought it was broken, so I bought a new one. It turned out to be a bad power supply. Not happy about that.
Summary: I almost bricked this router. I flashed from the netgear interface to a DD-WRT std (standard) firmware, which is WRONG. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS!! If you don't first flash to the mini the way DD-WRT forums explains, you WILL be sorry.
Pros: DD-WRT capable! Wireless N seems pretty good. I got it for cheap as a refurb!!
Cons: The administrative interface will lock up often when I make changes. I have DD-WRT on there, which is great, but many times the admin CP will lock up on me when I try to "Apply Changes" - this ALWAYS requires a reboot to fix, but at least the router still works, so it won't kick anyone off until ...
Summary: This is the first wireless router I have used, and I relied on the saleman's recommendation when I bought it. I spent one tedious hour getting it set up. After that, it has been a joy. I have been using it for 6 months with no trouble at all.

Summary: After reading a couple reviews about 300ms ping + this is most likely caused because others were using another router in the same area as you like a neighbor. This can easily be fixed by changing the channel.
Pros: I purchased this router at Best Buy in order to replace an old linksys wireless router. The range on this router is about a good 80 feet with walls and the speeds are great. I have had no problem with backwards compatibility with b/g.
Summary: I doubt I have ever had as much indecision in arriving at what I consider to be the most appropriate star rating for any item I've reviewed. I do not claim to be a networking savant however I do have enough of a background that I felt confident that I could create a security-enabled network with...
