Summary: This started out as a pretty straightforward installation. It took about a half hour to get things hooked up, mostly because I was chasing cables and connections from the old router and I like to have things neat. The installation disk seemed easy to follow, but I couldn't get online.
Summary: I have Linux Ubuntu and I was able to get it to work. I had to go to a forum to realize that the software it comes with (only for windows) isn't really necessary. The setup was easy once I found the internet address for the router.
Summary: I've read the reviews on all the current wireless routers and decided to go with the 631 since newer versions really did not offer much more of an upgrade other than looks. It comes with software cd (ignor it) and load it manually. Use the 192.168.10.1 browser address to use the router wizard.
Summary: This wireless router works well, and was easy to configure. Provides gaming and N broadband support. The gaming part works well for me, but all my wireless devices only use G so I can't test that. It was way cheaper than the others.
Summary: Very briefly, my apartment has metal studs in the walls. My laptop (Intel NIC) is two rooms from the router (D-Link) but the signal goes through the two walls at 90 degrees and I get 5 out of 5 on the meter.
Summary: Overall it is a lot better than the old Wireless-G (Linksys). Worked right off the box. Needs a little more time to enable the wep key which has not happened yet. Comes with a Netmanager software has a short trial period so plan on spending a little more if you need it.
