Difficult set up but great once you figure it out.

Excerpt: After buying this router I tried setting it up myself, I'm not the most technologically advanced person but I can usually figure things out. After a couple hours of following the directions and having to restart several times I called the support line, the man was very helpful and ended up setting it up for me through my computer. After the headache of setting it up it worked wonderfully, I've had no problems since I bought it except having to reset it occasionally.
Excerpt: This is the first wireless router I have ever bought. It was a tad expensive for me ($50) but it works pretty well. I have had to reboot it a dozen or so times (over the last year) but for the most part it works well. It has a great useage range (I get internet all over my house and yard) and it was very easy to install and run with my cable company. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
Excerpt: I was using this wireless router for about a year, until I upgraded to wireless-n router. This was an okay router, average performance and functionalities. It supports wireless G and wireless B, but no wireless N so if you need the extra performance say in a big house, or other functionalities, it's better to skip this router. It was sufficient for my need in a two bedroom apartment.
Excerpt: I have had this router for quite awhile now. It works most of the time but I would say that I have to restart it at least once a week, which is very annoying. It tends to lag a little and the restarts help a little. When this router is working, it performs on average. Speed and range and decent for the class, nothing great, but not bad either.
Excerpt: My roommates are IT gurus therefore we are using the router on a regular basis, but I must admit that sometimes the router does not do the job. Even tonight, I had to plug the computer to the main internet line because the router wouldn't do its job. If you are an expert, I guess this will not be an isuue, but if you just want something to be set up once and always work, this might not be the best option.
Pros: Its easy to install, and widely available and known.
Cons: I've used two of these and in both cases have had frequent hiccups and the range isn't quite is large or strong as would be useful. I think this is in part due to the horrors of Time Warner high speed, but also the router just isn't seamless.
