Summary: This router failed. It stopped working. I factory reset it and still had problems so I updated to the latest firmware. That did not fix it either. My wireless would stop working and require a reboot. Eventually the physical connection stopped working too and a reboot would not get it to work anymore. Called tech support, sounds like it's in India and we had trouble communicating.
Works well and fairly fully featured, especially at the pricepoint

Summary: This router does exactly what it advertises. Concurrent dual-band w/ N speeds and all the features described above (I won't repeat them here). Setup was a breeze, though I didn't use the wizard and you probably don't need to either as it's all fairly intuitive. Set up the 2.4GHz network with the same SSID/auth as my previous router and all our devices worked seamlessly (3 laptops, 1 desktop, 2 Wiis), and all devices that could see the 5GHz band connected easily with WPA2...
Summary: This is the worst WiFi router I have ever owned. It wasn't cheap to start with, I thought I was paying for quality. It had to break for me to improve my WiFi network. It lasted less than three years in which I had a bunch of problems with range, speed, and features that would work only sometimes. Most notably was synching iOS devices wirelessly. All those problems dissappeared when the router broke and I had to substitute it... It is a POS. Run away from this product.
Summary: I bought this to replace D link router and bridge which had stopped talking to each other. This router and a TRENDnet 300 Mbps Wireless N 4-Port Media Bridge TEW-640MB (Piano Black) are both working great. I plugged in the router and then the bridge, pushed the link button and they started talking with out any more tinkering. Much better than the other set. so far so good!
Summary: I've been really happy with this purchase. Once every couple of months I'll have to reboot it to get one of the bands working but I've been running 3 networks off of this without really any problems.
Pros: Multiple Bands Multiple SSID Easy Setup Transmit Power of 2.4 Ghz is good
Cons: 5GHz Transmit power is not ideal Occasionally 1 band will stop working
Pros: This was an extremely easy router to configure. Did not even have to look at the manual but again I have been doing Technical support for wireless routers for 5 + years. Very simple and clearly labels options makes setting it up a breeze. All my "G" devices connected with better signal and Faster then my old Netgear. My "N" devices all solid at 135 mbs an I love it. I will recommend this model or the updated version to all my friends an clients
