Summary: I've been using this for over 2 years and I've found it to be an excellent router. Wireless nearly never drops. I barely have to touch it twice a year. Typical setup is easy. When trying to use more complicated settings like bridging, can take some time and some brain cells. Don't expect to flash it with DD-WRT or anything because it only has 2MB of RAM. Overall, very good router and highly recommended.
Pros: Very consistent, little to low problem router. Bridging is an excellent function.
Cons: Settings can be confusing (playing around can fix some stuff). Bridging can be a P.I.T.A. Hard to flash due to 2mb ram.
Pros: Works just great. =) Easy to set up when you take it out of the box. (Apprx. Time: 3-5 minutes) Needed something like this to keep my Xbox connected to Live and something to make the family computer run just a little bit better.
Summary: I like the fact that my son is happy now that he gets to go online with his x-box. Thats pretty much what it was purchased for. Also it ties in our inter- net phone provider, our internet provider, and oh yea also our new printer. so all in all it way a great purchase and I LOVE IT!!!!
Pros: I have owned this router for more than a year now, and I must say that I am extremely impressed. It was very simple to set up (browser based), and has been running with my old linksys modem for over a year now. IT HAS NEVER CRASHED! I have never needed to reboot my router, it has always worked. I work in IT and I have not even had that kind of performance with high-end cisco equipment. OUTSTANDING!
Cons: If you do not know how to set up a router using your browser, you might find this router a little tricky to configure (since there is no CD wizard, most of those are junk by the way, you should really set up your router through your browser). It's easier than you might think on the surface, just follow the directions in the manual.
Good choice if you're looking for a good, cheap wireless router!

Pros: The perfect choice for a wireless router that doesn't need to do N, broadcast half way across the neighborhood, and doesn't need to do gigabit either. Bought it for my aunts home, works like a charm with her Time Warner. Runs her home comp, her TiVo, and a few laptops at great speeds. Easy to manage and setup web interface. Gives good reception through the entire house. All together a great buy for the price.
Cons: Not cons for the price, but as stated: Not going to braodcast to the whole neighborhood, no N, and no gigabit. Again, not cons, but if your looking for something with any of those features, this isn't the router for you.
