Summary: The WRT150N delivers plenty of features at a competitive price-point. Its 802.11 draft-n networking is slow, but its 802.11g performance is excellent. It ran cool during our tests, was easy to set up and use, but its Web interface is sluggish at times.
Pros: Fast 802.11g speed, well-priced, URL and keyword filtering, SPI firewall enabled by default, ran cool during our tests
Cons: Slower-than-expected 802.11 draft-n performance, Web interface sluggish at times, Web interface doesn't have a 'restart' setting, lacks QoS settings
Excerpt: This model lacks the exotic 'paddle' antennae of its upmarket brethren and uses just a pair of Mimo aerials. Nor is its maximum network speed on a par with more expensive draft n devices. Despite what it says on the box, the Linksys WRT150N is draft-n-2.0 certified, but we had to update the firmware on ours.
