Summary: Cisco has a great reputation in hardware. So much so that the dictatorial governments around the globe have adopted its hardware as their governmental standard. Interestingly, Cisco as a US company, is more than willing to facilitate oppression of other countries' citizens' freedom, such as spying on innocent citizens with Deep Packet Inspection technology (look it up).
Summary: This is my second one of this model router (first one died from lightning spike). I love how well this handles everything thrown at it- i don't use the software that came with it, but installed DD-WRT , which really allows the router to use it's fullest capabilities. A solid router for tweaking, hardware is up for the task if you use other software than what comes with it -as long as your okay with the risk involved with potentially bricking it if your install goes...
Summary: This router has less range than my old Netgear Wireless-G router. Very dissapointing. Also, the setup wizard on the supplied CD didn't work with Windows XP, and I had to manually configure the router. Other than that, all router functions seem to work well, and the user interface is very good.
Summary: I installed this to use with my Desktop (XP) and a Laptop (Vista), the Desktop wired, the Laptop wireless. The wiring of the Desktop was easy, I installed the software, followed directions and startup went perfect (did need to call my ISP for one piece of info). The Desktop worked flawlessly. The Laptop came with a wireless card so only needed a menu setup and it was working, at least I could connect to the internet.
Summary: A few weeks ago lighting burned my ADSL modem, my old mighty WRT54G v2 and a 5 ports gigabit switch. I was looking for a device with more memory and perhaps a faster CPU and I found the WRT350N v1. This Pre-N device has a Broadcom 4785 @ 300MHz (The WRT54G v2 had a BCM4712 @ 200MHz), It has 32 MB of RAM, 8 MB of flash, an USB port, a 4 port gigabit switch and it was compatible with DD-WRT (min. version: v24 - build 0616).
