Summary: I waited over a year to comment. Used for streaming videos and web surfing it worked perfectly for the past 1+ years. I was tempted to purchase a spare just in case but to be honest I forgot about doing that. I don't know about extended range though...this seems to have the same range as the Linksys router it replaced.
Summary: My old dLink G router stopped recognizing physical connections. My Airlink 101 N has great range, but trouble with mac filtering and no firmware update available. I'm a cheapskate, so I bought this used TP-Link router. I was prepared to not like the product, since I disliked the TP-Link Range Extender (couldn't get it to work correctly). But this G router works great, with range as good as an N router. The mac filtering is flawless.
Summary: Being an IT professional I've owned many linksys routers in the past. They required occasional rebooting and had frequent transformer issues. I've owned this TP link for several months now and have no complaints. Range is far superior to any other router we've had (my house is a 2 story 2250 sqft) and I never had to reboot.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Belkin router that I'd had for some time and was starting to act up. So far I'm very pleased. It runs no-stop and I haven't had to reset it at all since first configuring it. Online set up was a breeze and the manual was very clear at every step. The only con(which is my fault) is that it's only B/G; having thought ahead I probably would've gotten a model that supported N as well.
Summary: I have had several expensive routers that have given me a lot of problems in the past, a couple of them I had to return because I was unable to install them. Last month I changed my Internet provider (I have Comcast now) They said they could rent me a router for a few dollars more a month...I said no because I could always get a router for $40 or something in any store and I would end up paying less.
