Summary: picked this router up for gaming. first off, unless your a extremely cpu savy which i am not, i would not recommend this product. you have to set the unit up for gaming which they call game fuel. just using their preset game fuel settings, my connection did not improve. i looked for more info on the internet and found a forum. it gave pretty good directions, but really didnt help my connection noticeably. had an outdated crappy router, should have just kept it.
"Fast but problem router-I am putting it out of service"
2 August 2009
Pros: Very fast when it works, many features
Cons: 1. - Randomly resets or drops out unless you disable auto channel search in wireless configuration 2. - Requires static IP address for port forwarding - i.e. services such as no-ip.com will not work, unlike with the DIR 655
Pros: Lots of fancy (mostly useless) features to tinker with. Design is nice. Ummm...
Cons: Supposed to have approximately double the range of A, B, G but this router ends up having around 75% of their range so, it does not do very good with wireless range if streaming to a console, as one example.
