Pros: Only had to reset it twice in 2 months. Easy instructions for setup. This is my first wi-fi router.
Cons: After trying to use the software in the package on my Vista laptop, I decided the best option was an uninstall. I use the standard Windows connection wizard and it works like a charm. Full signal all over my small house. 5 eggs if the software wasn't junk.
