      I upgraded from the 4 years old Linksys WRT54G to the EA4500. The improvement in performance is felt from every corner of my (two storey) house.

      Setting up the EA4500 is extremely easy. Any novice can do it by following steps in the Setup CD.

      I have only been using the EA4500 for about two weeks. So far, haven't discover any negative aspect of the product.

                              I use the wireless router to access my desktop PC, a printer, and a laptop in another area of the house.
                              Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

                                  Perfect for home use - whoever uses a router more than a few years old should upgrade.

                                  I upgraded from the Linksys wrt160N to increase wireless transmission speed and ease of use. Right out of the box, with the use of included software, I was able to set up in minutes. Performance has been fast and flawless.

                                  I use the wireless router to access my desktop PC, a printer, and a laptop in another area of the house.

                                    I upgraded from the 4 years old Linksys WRT54G to the EA4500. The improvement in performance is felt from every corner of my (two storey) house.

                                    Setting up the EA4500 is extremely easy. Any novice can do it by following steps in the Setup CD.

                                    I have only been using the EA4500 for about two weeks. So far, haven't discover any negative aspect of the product.

                                      I am a home user, with a rater "complicated" home network.
                                      -my needs:
                                      +To replace a router that was constantly dropping the internet connection.

                                      +secure visitors (people that comes to my house)
                                      +parental control
                                      -I have:
                                      2 wired computers and a TV connected to hub and the hub connected to an Wirelss G Access Point.
                                      2 iphones
                                      2 ipod touch
                                      2 laptops

                                      Installation:
                                      Was quite easy basically set up the Ip and voila! is up and running

                                      Pros:
                                      - The speed on the internet is used full, no bottleneck on my internal network
                                      - Parental control
                                      - Works well using N & G wireless
                                      - The visitors network
                                      Cons:
                                      - Parental control is a bit restrictive does not allow different rules for diferent IPs
                                      - Port forwarding does not seem to be implement on the web interface

                                      Overall:
                                      - I substract 1 star, because i know the router hardware is capable or more things than the web interface allows... hopefully if gets improved with the time.
