4 out of 5 eggsCheap and stable

Pros: Very easy to install DD-WRT on
Quick booting compared to other name brand routers

Cons: stock interface is totally worthless, broadcast distance not as great as I had hoped, but is acceptable for home network use, goes 120-150 ft through average interior walls. (my modified linksys wrt54g went over 200 feet further with same firmware)

Other Thoughts: overall a decent purchase for the price, I now have the kids devices limited to 1Mb speeds and time allotments.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working!

Pros: I got this and was skeptical, but after installing DD-WRT it has been working fine for more than a year! I would buy two. Well worth it!

Cons: Not many

5 out of 5 eggsSolid performance

Pros: Affordable and small enough to hide or be inconspicuous.

Works really well in my condo, even up to the second floor on the opposite side.

Cons: For the asking price, really, none. It could be faster, but if you want faster, there are faster models in the same brand.

Other Thoughts: I'm running 3 laptops, 2 desktops and several phones through this and they all exhibit very little slowness or lag.

4 out of 5 eggsadequate for price

Pros: inexpensive, works, ran for 6 months with no rebooting. for less then $20, I would buy again if I needed them.

Cons: not an extensive range. range is no better then a wireless B.

Other Thoughts: I used this for a range extension, haven't gotten any deeper into the settings other then having a second router to connect to.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job on a budget

Pros: Once it's set up, it's a good reliable budget router.

Cons: Range isn't anything to write home about. The web interface for managing the router was not very user friendly and was very frustrating at times. Included documentation was not very helpful.

Other Thoughts: Web interface isn't kind to machines with multiple monitors for some reason. It must calculate the available width of the screen and stretch its interface to fill all the screens, even if your browser window is only on one screen.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Great operation with DD-WRT and OpenWRT.
- Low amount of times where I had to hard reset it.
- Handles high amount of traffic quite well.

Cons: - Not Gigabit
- Doesn't come with DD-WRT preinstalled :/

Other Thoughts: I've owned this for about a year now and it's put up with a lot of the hoops I put my devices through. DD-WRT or OpenWRT is a must for this router because it really opens up it's chest so it can breathe... so to speak. I've streamed movies, VoIP, and used bittorrent all at the same time with this little bugger while chatting and moving files across my LAN and it's kept up with me quite well for a 150Mbps router. I recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well with DD-WRT Open-Source Firmware

Pros: I bought this specifically because it supports the DD-WRT open-source firmware. I followed the instructions on the DD-WRT website, installed the firmware, and followed the configuration directions for the specific application I needed. I set it up to be an access point so I can have multipoint wifi on the same SSID in my home. Off-the-shelf AP's for that application are way more expensive than this, so I am very pleased.

Cons: None so far

2 out of 5 eggsthe wireless stops transmitting data

Pros: Good price, when it works it works, but

Cons: Mine doesn't feel hot, just warm and it worked well for a few months. But suddenly, like the other people said, the wireless stops transmitting data. It still got a good connection. but the transmitting rate was very very slow. I used speedtest.net to test it, it showed less than 1Mbps, but my desktop with wired connection with the same router got 28Mbps. A reboot would not help, I needed to unplug the power and replug again, then it worked for a day or so. I have tried g only, n only, b/g/n mixed and all had the same problem. It needs a new updated firmware, mine is 3.9.18.

4 out of 5 eggsBudget WiFi @ Home

Pros: DD-WRT flashable.
Stable enough.
low TCO.

Cons: none for someone tech enough to flash it.

Other Thoughts: it may work quite well oob, but i wouldn't know; i flashed it to DD-WRT ASAP. The process was painless and error free.

5 out of 5 eggsGood, but great with Gargoyle firmware

Pros: Cheap! Good out of the box, but you should load dd-wrt or Gargoyle.

Cons: As others have said, router stayed hot. I considered drilling holes in case for cooling. I'm guessing this is why some die completely.
With factory firmware in Repeater mode, would drop wifi after extended heavy use (VOIP calls through Cat5 port) plus PC connections.
Both problems were fixed with other firmware, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: This ran hot from the start. Not hot enough to be dangerous but hotter than you would expect. I bought this for the repeater mode, and it was easy to set up and seemed to work great. I have a VOIP phone hard wired in a Cat5 port, I work at home so having the router stay up was critical during conference calls. I would always get drops where the phone and my laptop lost internet connection, sometimes it would come back after a few minutes, others I would have to power cycle the router. For a long time I blamed my main router, and tried two different ones, a dLink DIR-655 and Rosewill RNX-n300 and still had the problem with both. I would have used one of the other ones and trashed this one but neither had the repeater mode. Before trashing this I decided to try some other firmware. I tried dd-wrt first but couldn't ever get the bridge/repeater mode to work properly. After wasting a few hours with dd-wrt I found something about Gargoyle working with these and being easy to set up repeater mode. It was a long process to install since this is really a TPLink router rebranded so I had to revert from dd-wrt to the TPlink firmware, then install gargoyle. Google it. Once Gargoyle was installed it was very simple to set up repeater mode, had phone and laptop working in 10 minutes. Have used it for over a week now and hasn't dropped once, used to drop daily. I have also noticed that it no longer runs hot. it is on 24/7 and it is barely warm! Something in the factory firmware must be looping, using CPU and generating heat.
Overall I'm very impressed with the simplicity of Gargoyle, works great on this router and much easier than dd-wrt for a simple network or repeater.
I'm probably going to buy another RNX-n150 and load with Gargoyle and set it up for my parents since their large house has poor coverage.
