Summary: This was purchased to be used as a repeater to extend the range of our network rather than as a router. The intent was to take advantage of its "n" technology. In the WDS mode, the range of this unit's signal was very disappointing, so much so that we took it down and put the eight year old Hawking Extender back in service. It was good at more limited ranges and would be fine for a small house or apartment.
This is a must have for any home that needs WiFi access.

Summary: This is a must have for any home for WiFI access. This item is a must have for any home. I purchased this item Buffalo Wireless Router for my Mother. She has a lap top on the main floor, and when we visit her we need Wi-Fi to connect with our Smart Phones and iPad (s) etc. She has mobility issues so we purchased another lap top for her bedroom.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this purchase. I'm using this router to connect my desktop computer to my home wireless network, so am using it as a client off another wireless router. It is working flawlessly, and the setup with the built-in tools for this wasn't terribly difficult. Very happy I picked this up.
