Review Summary

I own one, and it is great. Never crashed, really fast, really good looking. Fast boot-up time, secure. And you can make money from it using Tomizone. It can broadcast two ssid's, one private and one public, to make the money. So people can connect to the public ssid and pay using paypal then use your connection. Then the money pop's up into your bank account. Great router, and a really good price too. And the antenna is easy to replace. Firmware is easy to upgrade. Brilliant on the whole.
