1.Good Buy

After a little trouble setting the router code (most likely my fault) the device has been working flawlessly from day one. Down load speed is terrific. I would get another ,if needed, without hesitation.

2.dlinkgo Router $ cheap

Actually the D-Link DIR-501 router works fine but only had it for about a month. This item is realiable enough and your money goes a long way. I am satisfied but I just hope it last and only time will tell. One thing about this I can tell you that the people you call to help you install are professionals and patient. I recommend any problems call technical support. Just be nice to the operators because I am telling its hard working with people that doesn’t know alot abou t computers. I am so thankful they resolve my problem.
