Pros: Bought this unit to replace a flaking Netgear wireless router. I am very happy so far with the ease of installation and performance. Recommended.
Cons: The installation routine does require some basic networking knowledge.
Summary: I gave the product a 5 instead of a 4, to offset the 1 given by another reviewer.

Pros: It took me around 15 mins to setup my desktop, my netbook, my wireless desktop and mac. it’s pretty simple. i am not a tech. Speed test is above average, 9.79/10.
Cons: price of router is fair. but you might have to spend money on 5.0GHz USB adatper for your wireless device in order to take advantage of this router. if you have budget concern, i would suggest you: save money it’s worth it.
Summary: I have tried linksys 160, 310. both are over-heating and you have to unplug and plug in order to reset. it’s pretty annoying to do that every day.

Pros: Stable Router, great range, and fast Internet streaming with a range of different platform (XP-MAC-Vista).
Cons: Set up is a bit long, the 5Hz band do not transmit along the 2.4 HZ and is only avail on N signals
Summary: I Return the linksys 160n model (Comparable) because of resets every 3 days for speed degradation. This device is way more superior for the same price
