5 out of 5 eggsWorks well so far

Pros: Bought two. For the price this is a great basic N router. Range seems to be good. I appreciate being able to adjust the transmission power. Doesn't seem to overheat or need rebooting. Packaged well but not over-packaged. Supports WPA2-PSK in WPS mode to make bridging more secure.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Link speed doesn't seem to exceed 144Mbps but it really doesn't matter because the switch is 100Mbps.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: I had this router for 3 days now. In fact, I had first placed an order for a similarly priced Trendnet n router but then decided to cancel the order upon reading reviews -- accordingly, the Trendnet router gets hot, it drops connection frequently perhaps because it gets hot, the router stops working after a few months, again because of the heat. I was deterred.

Anyway, with the Zyxel,so far so good. I plugged in my modem, made sure I got internet through lan first, set up new password, and then set up Wpa2 security. Signal strenth is excellent everywhere in my apartment (which is not saying much considering that my place is small... but perhaps I'll start testing the strength by taking my laptop out to my car...); the wifi works just as my connection works when it's wired.

Some tips: In the beginning, the router has to set itself, so each configuration takes about a minute or two to register. Give the router some time and go to http://192.168.1.1 to access the router and its con

Cons: Not really a con since it isn't related to the router and there is a way to solve it, but when playing online games, there is a serious lag issue. For those on Windows 7 and Vista, this problem can be resolved by downloading a simple program called "Wlan Optimizer". For that programn, I'd recommmend these settings: autoconfig ON; background scan OFF; enable Stream mode ON. By default Win 7 and Vista have backgroubd scan on and stream mode off. With those values changed, the lag and ping issues I was having while playing games completely disappeared. Do not set autoconfig OFF. If you do you'll have to restart and reset everything. (And if you have to set autoconfig off and you lose your connection, reset by going into control panel -> admistrative tools -> services -> wlan autoconfig --> start, etc...; also it might be neccesary to remove and reinstall a network under "manage wireless networks"... )

Other Thoughts: I don't have much experience with laptops and wifi and all that, but so far this router enables me to surf, download, email, and play games, exactly as if my computer were wired directly to the modem. The lag problem is a fixable and also the setup was easy enough, although since I'm new to everything, I didn't feel as though I knew exactly what I was doing.

The router itself after nonstop 3 days use does not feel hot to the touch or anything. It feels only slightly warm.

I took a chance with Zyxel; I like the advertisement they have at other sites and for the money-31 bucks and some change- it was the best, most affordable option for the 8.0211n specs, two antenna router. I'm glad I got it. Hope it keeps working for a few more years. And if it doesn't, I'll come back here and write about it.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Out of the Box

Pros: Great Price, easy setup and aesthetically pleasing interface.

Cons: Defective out of the box. I figured for the price I could replace my perfect outdated G to match my N adapter. The adapter had a max signal to the router but the router kept dropping the internet connection. I tried restarting, resetting etc. Nothing worked.

Other Thoughts: I am sure this was just a bad one out of a bunch but its frustrating to deal with especially when you have to pay to ship a defective item back to the retailer. I work in online retail and that is NOT how we handle defective products.
