Summary: This may have been a bad refurb; I don't know. This particular unit did not always save settings. It would work for a while and then stop. Some configuration changes would cause the unit to stop responding to all requests and need a reset. I gave up and bought something else.
Pros: Price and interface.
Cons: Flaky and not dependable, needs resets often.
Summary: My old router is 100mbps and it doesn't even lag like this.

Summary: If you want the manual and installation guide for this unit, they can be found at Netgear's web page. The info for this model isn't easy to find, but, with a little persistence, you'll get them.
Pros: Router works as advertised, is easy to set up(assuming you've downloaded the manual). I bought one as a spare for my current router and one to use as a relay. However, things didn't turn out that way(see cons).
Cons: If you plan to use this as a relay to another part of your building, be aware that the wireless link between routers needs to be either unencrypted or encrypted using WEP. It won't work with WPA or WPA2. To me, running either unencrypted or with WEP is simply and invitation for someone outside yo...
Summary: My old one also died after a year, at that point it had to be rebooted a few times a day or hour. I found the setup easy so I purchased the same model. However the reboot problem occurred immediately with the new one.
