Summary: After reading over 100 reviews on this router, I basically starting fudging my Huggies thinking that installing it was gonna be some kind of total nightmare. But it turned out to be a total no-brainer... in fact, I'm sure my mom could do it, no problem.
Pros: - No brainer installation (even for total newbs) - Cheap with lots of advanced features (although there's definitely a learning curve involved in order to acquire an appreciation for them).
Cons: - Help file for 'web-based configuration utility' needs a rewrite (and some serious fleshing out especially with regards to how to configure the firewall).
Excerpt: I bought this router on eBay for £20. I used this to connect 2 computers to the same internet connection to save running another lead through to the new computer. I plugged the router in and connected it up to a computer and read the instruction manual which is very useful.
Excerpt: Well maybe its just a case of me not being too much of a wizard on computers of maybe Im just not too bright. This is the third wireless router I have tried to set up and touch wood so far it has been working great... for 2 weeks.
Pros: Well it works . . . . and thats a start . . .
Excerpt: I got broadband about 3 yrs ago and as you do with one pc you just use a cable then the wife said "I want my own pc" so being the man of the house i gave in. Dilemma....... if you have 2 pc's in one house were one is upstairs and one is downstairs how do you get both pc's on the internet...
Excerpt: For those looking to set up a first network this would be a good choice, particularly for a small home/office network. With the ability to connect four ethernet connections, it has plenty of room for expansion, and doesn't take up a huge amount of room.
Pros: Small, space - saving, good value for money and effective
Cons: Can be intimidating at first, may need an extra cable
