Summary: It was excellent for the first year or so, then it just gave out. I suspect someone may have done something to cause it to stop working, but there appears to be no sign of damage, so I rate it at a 4, because for the price, it is worth replacing yearly. ;-)

Set Up Bumpy But Working Great After Technical Assistance

Summary: Honestly? Frustrating...at first. Wireless router installation wizard on CD was innefective. Could not get it to work on Toshiba notebook with online install either. Tried several of the set-ups recommended by Amazon reviewers, to no avail.
Summary: The router works great for what it is, a compact travel router. I use it at hotels to set up a wireless network. I did notice that a corner of the product was not snapped into place, and i haven't been able to snap it in myself. I wish quality Control would have caught it.
Summary: It's tiny, very lightweight, and has a good range. The install, however, was not easy by any means. The router would not connect to the internet for some reason. I consider myself to be computer savvy but I buckled and called tech support.
Summary: I was thinking of purchasing an Airport Express module, but purchased this instead. It has a lower price, similar size, and a built-in 4-port switch which won me over. It was easy to configure using Safari and it's built-in setup wizard (no software needs to be installed).
Summary: Bought this to replace a Belkin which constantly kept dropping the connection. This router is extremely compact but does the job perfectly - set up took a little longer than I expected as I had to do stuff with MAC addresses but the online instructions were absolutely idiot proof so it was up and...
Summary: Installed this router by hardwiring to my desktop pc (will wirelessly connect to laptop when it arrives). I have broadband cable with Virgin Media (NTL). Installed from the CD wizard but the wizard could not find an internet connection when there was one there! I could connect.
Excerpt: WHAT DO YOU GET? You'll get 200Mhz processing power (integrated broadcom solution) which should be of a great use since this box can be programmed to do almost anything if you are familiar with linux and crosstool compiler.
Cons: "Can't be used as a client in original firmware"
