Summary: If you just want an ADSL modem/router to hook up a desktop and provide wireless DHCP service, this product is probably fine. Setup for that is a snap. For anything more advanced, I'd suggest looking elsewhere. There are two crucial problems with this router. The first is that it doesn't support address reservation, so port forwarding is unreliable. Suppose you have two desktop boxes on your LAN, alpha and beta.
Summary: I bought this to use with AT&T DSL when I moved into my new apartment. It took me about a half hour to set everything up after watching a few instructional videos on Youtube and using the instructions AT&T sent me. I haven't had any dropped signals in my apartment and I definitely recommend this to anyone who has a small apartment.
Ordered as a long shot... Works much better than others more expensive.

Summary: I have bought two other modem router combos and could not get 11776/1024. This modem was able to get the speeds when the other two could only get me 11776/700-800 range. The other manufacturer support was terrible. I didn't need to contact Tenda tech support bc the set up was simple. I ordered this because it was dirt cheap and I like to test cheap stuff out. If it works like I should, great, otherwise, I'll return it. No harm to test something out.
Summary: Hate to say it but this is a bit of Chinese junk, not worth the plastic and wire it is made from. I am relatively tech savvy, and have installed a variety of modem/routers in the past. Heck if I can get this to work right. I am writing now using the package, but only through a wide open network. The autoconfig of the CD never worked, the paper instructions impossible to follow.
Summary: Bought this router to clean up my desk area, worked okay. It was not as easy to set up as others I have used as the menu screens do not use what I would consider standard terminology and do not do a good job explaining the options. Downloaded the manual which was some help. It took several tries before I figured out how to get it to connect with ATT DSL. It worked fine for internet access but I was unable to use my VOIP service for some reason. Calls would be choppy.
