      Bought this router to replace an older Linksys WRT54G router. My hope was to get a little better coverage around the house a faster speeds. I got neither. It was easy to set up and the newer interface was a nice improvement. If my old router had blown up, I would have been very happy with this unit as a replacement. But since I was looking for a little performance improvement I had to take off one star.

      Initial installation and setup were very easy and the smart wifi interface makes it easy to manage the router's features and get the most out of it.

      Range was a problem for our house. The router is in the middle of the house and the signal is weak in the living room at one end and the bedrooms at the other. Returning the router but will try another linksys and see if I can get better range.

        This wireless router is great! It is really fast especially if you stream online movies or download large files. The new Lynksy system is so easy to set up and manage compared to the older version. The only question I have, is why did I wait so long to upgrade my router.
