Summary: The lifetime of this router was very short lived in my hands. I was the second owner, but I'm sure it was one hell of a router. When I received it, it was easy to setup and piggy back off my current wireless router.
Summary: Works fine if you don't use WPA. As soon as I enabled WPA, it will crash every few days and require rebooting. Google it, I'm not the only one. (If you don't know what WPA is, learn - unless you don't mind people stealing your internet and passwords.
Summary: I got this at a great price several months ago, and have been using it as a wired router, and was not using the wireless portion at all. Recently my wife got a shiny new laptop, and I decided to set the wireless portion up.
Summary: The unit does what it's supposed to and for a non tech person it was easy enough to set up but there was some problems getting the correct configuration initiqally which was very frustrating. I had a standard ADSL modem supplied by the provider and then decided to "upgrade".

Summary: This product doesn't work with xbox live. NAT settings are restricted which means it will limit the amount of games you may join. I'd advise the Netgear modem/router as it is much easier to install and a lot more people use it. Plus, it benifits from MUCH better product support.
