4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Router but does come with few issues

Pros: Easy Setup
USB capability to make Print Server and Media Server capability
Your own personal cloud where you can plug your hard drive and access the hard drive from anywhere in the world.

Cons: Requires restart in every couple of days to maintain the speed and connectivity. USB printer stops working and that's an indication that a restart is required.

5 out of 5 eggsPower House of a Router

Pros: Since I switched from my 8MBs DSL to a 50MBs cable modem 1 month ago, I only use the router feature of the TD-W8970. The user interface is very easy to use and can be very powerful for advanced users. I have a TV, PS3 and a Gaming PC hard wired into the LAN and a laptop, 2 iPads, 2 iPones, and a IP camera running on the wifi. I've tested the system by streaming different HD movies to the TV, laptop, both iPads, both iPhones while playing an online game and streaming pandora on the PC. Their was no noticeable lag or streaming hang ups on any of the devices.

Cons: None so far, I'll repost if anything comes up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Modem/Router combo

Pros: A lot of options, more than you will likely need.
Stable, only have to reset it once every 2 weeks.
Changing an option doesn't take 1-2 minutes to take effect, nearly instant.
Strong WIFI signal.

Cons: Sometimes lose wifi signal randomly every now and then for 1-2 minutes. (Very rarely and mainly only around 11 PM.)

Other Thoughts: Bought this router to replace a D-Link router. The configuration page on this is a lot better than what was on the D-Link one. This router also seems to have a stronger WIFI signal.

4 out of 5 eggsNot perfect but very good.

Pros: Modem setup went well and did not have to call ATT. I knew my username and password.
Router has all conceivable settings, some you will have to look up.

Cons: Must turn off ALG SIP for Voip to work. This is common I found out. Router does not always list all clients. They come and go with each reboot although all the connections work.

Other Thoughts: I got this because the modem/router supplied by ATT was a real POG that caused ridiculous unsolvable problems that went away with the use of this item. I cannot comment on lan or wireless speed but they seem normal. I have two printers connected wirelessly and they work including scanning. Also have wired IP cameras that would not work with ATT router worth a darn. In a business environment I could not spend any more hours trying to get the ATT Netgear router to work properly.
