Summary: I'm really impressed with the stock firmware of this router. I've got teenagers, and I have been able to implement some pretty good access restrictions, including complex scheduling of access rules and even bandwidth limitations per device (which is a feature I didn't expect).
Summary: I am an average user of Internet. Bought this router and put it downstair. We have 2 users upstair using it at the same time (browsing the Net), and it works fine, no hiccups. The installation was smooth.Then when I tried to add another laptop I messed up by creating a home network. To reverse that I called their tech support (in China), and the response was quick, and the person guided me step by step to have the router restored to its original working state.
works as a router, but loaded the latest version ...

Summary: works as a router, but loaded the latest version DDWRT and wanted to use this as a Virtual Access Point. For some reason, it worked but crashes. I've tried this with two different routers and two different versions of DDWRT. No Go. I'm sure it would work ok as just a regular access point. Probably flash it back to factory settings and give it away.
Summary: Needed an inexpensive router to replace Belkin wireless router that was failing. Stock firmware is average but but easy to configure. Just plugged into computer and opened browser router ip address and was off and running with very little setup. Download dd-wrt firmware and flashed to router without any issues. I love all the features that are added with dd-wrt. Wireless range is good. This is in a central location in my house and all areas have a great signal.
