Cisco Valet M10 802.11b/g/n Wireless HotSpot Router up to 300Mbps/ Easy setup by USB dongle inside
  • 802.11b/g/n 300Mbps
  • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
  • Easy setup by USB dongle inside

Pros:

None really.

Cons:

This router is quite buggy and underpowered. Ever since I installed it, I had the impression that connectivity was slowing down. I confirmed my feeling finally when downloading some TV episodes via my iPad, at a rate of not even 1MB per minute. One single TV episode took 6-7 hours to download. Normally it takes 20-30 minutes.

Googling the problem, I found many other people reporting the same problem. The issue seems to happen randomly.

The router also isn't as "easy" as they claim. The "easy" software does not always work. Some computers would be constantly rejected off the wifi network. Trying a manual setup would sometimes not work either. I have a Sony Vaio that connected only after an hour of fiddling with it. I also have a month old MacBook Pro that will NOT connect to this wifi router, no matter what I've tried. I've disabled security settings, changed channels, B/G/Auto, etc.

Other Thoughts:

Buggy product. If you google more about these issues, you will find many people reporting it. Cisco support is also useless. Check more reviews for this product at other shopping sites and you will see the problems above being reported by many others.
