Pros: Seems to work right out of the box..My old router would always drop and lose connection. Once I ran the Quick Start wizard, it did everything for me..No need to do anything, just write down the security key and go. Plus, it looks like a well designed product - nice and glossy plus the USB 2.0 looks cool. Will try that someday
Cons: Nothing yet..I just opened it and installed it.

Summary: This had an internal hardware failure within 2 days of installing. I spent4 hours on the phone with 2 help desks before being told the router had an internal hardware failure and sent it back for a refund.
Cons: Not sure why, but when my 2 laptops go to sleep, I loose wireless connections, and I have to reboot the router. No big deal, but I've yet to find the cause ... Perhaps a download of the latest firmware might help.
Simple Device (Good or Bad Depending on Where You Stand)

Summary: I guess you do get what you pay for, as this device is truly for quick-and-dirty setups. However, I got what I wanted with the wireless traffic operating at 5Ghz while not hogging up performance on my Bluetooth devices. The device has been on the market for a little while and there appears to be an OpenWRT firmware platform out there - which might solve the limited settings problem. I've yet to try it as of this writing.
Pros: - Low cost - Simple setup - Separate SSIDs for each band range (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) I got this refurb'd and on sale. For what it provided, it was a pretty good deal and would likely not have wanted to pay more for it. Set up is simple for someone who doesn't know or care for the inner workings of setting up a wireless network. A nice feature (which is probably standard on other routers, but I'm not sure) is that the two different wireless bands are kept separate from a w...
Cons: - Unstable web interface - Few advanced features - NO firewall settings customization Impressions on the web interface is mixed. While parts of the web interface look pretty and simple, it does not hold up well. Issues range from the web interface crashing and causing it to be inaccessible without a router reboot, to some settings like the router's internal IP to be reset when certain settings are changed. I wanted to use this device as a simple wireless access point ...
Summary: This one is configured and kickin' like chicken. I will get a spare before they're gone.
Pros: This is a fine router, with all the power needed to fill my 2500 sq ft. It literally took longer to unwrap it (dual bubble wrapped express mailers) than it did to receive a signal. Quick set up guild it too easy. Simply change any settings and passwords, and turn on guest network (if needed) done. It comes with 3 ssid's defined, & preset. passwords are not on the router, so keep the quick start guild.
Cons: friggin' ~mylar~ bubble wrap..... hand grenade.......
Pros: Gone thru numerous router made by Belkin, Netgear and others; by far this Vizio outperformed all at great price. I have full wireless access throughout my 3 bedroom house without having to use repeater. The connection is perfect, install was super simple and manual is easy to follow. Highly recommend this product.
Summary: It performs flawlessly right now will see how it does for the long run.
Pros: Router is refurbished but looked like new. Easiest set up I have ever done. Fast as hell and wireless distance is quite a bit further than the dlink i replaced. I only wish i had order 2 or 3 more. Lightening hit my last 2.
Summary: This router was a pure joy to install. I simply unhooked my modem and old router, then connected this router. When my laptop found the wireless router I used the supplied key to connect the two. Then under the routers IP address I simply changed the WAP password and made some personal changes. PS3 and 360 (both wired) worked with no changes in settings, which was great not to have to reconfigure them both.
