4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great range. Acceptable setup. No problems with disconnects.

Cons: Security isn't as good as it could be. Took away 1 star because of security. Only allows short admin passwords. Can't disable login over wireless connection. No MAC filtering.

Other Thoughts: I use this to connect to a Rosewill RNX-N150HG usb adapter that is over 4 tenths of a mile away (~2200 ft). I use 2 8dbi omni-directional antennas; one on the router and one on the usb adapter. My connection speeds range from 90 - 150 Mbits/Sec. The usb adapter's max speed is 150 Mbits/Sec.

Both units are in second story windows, and there is a direct line of sight view between them. I used it over winter without trimming some branches that were in the way. But when spring came that the leaves started growing, I had to trim the branches.

Both antennas are directly in front of a window. The router is perched right next to the window and the usb adapter is sitting in the window attached to my laptop with a usb extension.

I have used this router for 6 months. Have yet to use it during hot summer months and will have to see if warm temperatures cause any problems. I purchased a small fan to provide cooling for this router during hot weather. I suspect that many problems with router reliability are caused by overheating from poor airflow.

That being said, I've had absolutely no problems with dropped connections. We tend to unplug it during thunder storms, but other than that, it's on 24/7. I use it mostly for an internet connection, so I it's never under heavy loads.

Would recommend this product to a friend.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. Price! It was $29.99 when I got it
2. Small size
3. Large number of useful features (multiple SSIDs, etc)
4. 2x the range of an average equivalent device!

Cons: 1. Glitchy

Web interface is a bit glitchy, especially when turning on all the features. (maybe not enough internal ram?)

Also, some features allow you to break things and make things unstable.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for home use for a techie

1 out of 5 eggsWorked Great, then Didn't

Pros: Range is excellent... doesn't play well with others.

Cons: They tried to stupid-proof the software. What they succeeded in doing was making it freaking impossible to use in anything but the absolute easiest environment.

Was trying to change the LAN IP address on the device. After a reboot, it completely stopped responding. It was -present- on the network, but just ignored any traffic whatsoever.

I'm really rather disappointed with this. I paid too much to have it work for what.. 3 months?

Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere. This ain't worth the money, even as cheap as it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Router

Pros: Great little and I mean little router. BIG signal with the high power output. Signal increased over the Buffalo WRZ-HP-300NH it replaced using the supplied antennas. I increased the signal further by using the 5 or 8 dB after market antennas.

Cons: Using the time Sync to an NTP server will cause the router to sync time every hour. This is excessive and really only needs to be done once day. (firmware update needed)

Let the router sync with the PC (default) Just be sure to click on "apply" to get it started.

Other Thoughts: Very small and lays flat. Looks similar to an E series Linksys router.

Signal goes through 4 walls and a mirror with a -49 dbm signal level at the other end, 30 feet away. Channel set to 40 mHzl BW.

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is awesome

Pros: I cannot believe you can get so much for thirty bucks. It works fabulously right out of the box, includes a VPN server, multiple SSID support, automatic channel selection, gives me a great signal everywhere in the house (unlike the WRT54g it replaced), and has a decent little firewall, it's perfect. I got it for my parents, but I'm so impressed I'll be replacing my tomato-WRT54g with one also.

Cons: None!!!

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a cheap small home 802.11n (2.4 ghz) router, you can't go wrong with this little guy.

1 out of 5 eggsWon't hold a connection

Pros: Good price point if it works for you.

Cons: This router looked promising based on the specs. It worked great for the first 3 hours. Excellent range and speed. However, it then abruptly disconnected and has to be constantly reset. Very frustrating. Returning this router.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat router

Pros: This Router is great. It has all the setting more expensive routers have for less money. Please note you do need to manually setup this router for it to work well but that the case with every one I have ever installed. It is 200mw and the signal is strong compared to some old netgear or linksys baseline wireless router. I have setup many of these wireless routers and never had any problems getting anything to connect to it. along with Ipads androids, TV's, linksys wrt54gl with dd-wrt used as a repeater. The wireless router doesn't hardly ever need to be reset, unless there is like a power surge from a lighting storm, in which it wouldn't have happened if there was a ups on it to begin with.

Cons: No button you can click where it automatically sets itself up on your exact network, know the channel that is not being used and automatically know every device you have and what encryption is supported on an old IBM laptop that was made in 2003 or an Android bought at big lots for 30 bucks, or an HP Windows Vista x64 laptop with outdated Atheros chip drivers installed using N, MIXED MODE,with WPA2 encryption.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Router for the price

Pros: I found the router fairly easy to set-up (W7 OS), but did not connect on the first try. I'll take the hit for that.
It works well and has been stable despite what some of the other reviewers are noting.
Faster than my old Wireless-G router, especially when nearby.
Inexpensive relative to newer Wireless N routers.

Cons: The range is not as good as I had expected after reading the product details. Slower downloads at longer distances. I have a condo in an older building with thicker walls and purchased this product for its "high power" to compensate. I had hoped the signal would reach into some distant rooms but its not much stronger than my old g router. Nonetheless, I do get a signal where I once did not, but nothing exciting.

Other Thoughts: I'm moderately satisfied with the product so far and use it for run of the mill Ipad/Iphone use. Nothing heavy-duty. I am glad that I did not have to spend a ton of $$ for Wireless N and, so far, have confidence that the signal will be there when I need it. I can not attest to the long term viability of the product. I'll likely upgrade in a few years to a more state of the art router when I refurb. my computer again to take advantage of new technology.
