Pros:

Great feature list, nice footprint, easy to setup. The administration interface is pretty advanced for a consumer device and provides a lot of information and troubleshooting.

Cons:

Randomly dies and reboots. The faster you shovel traffic over it, the more likely it is to simply die for anywhere from 20 seconds to 5 minutes. This fatal flaw makes it useless despite all the other good things about it. This happens well before reaching the advertised rate of 300mbit/sec; the device will not reliably handle 50mbit/sec.

Were that not the case, my only complaint would be that in wireless bridge mode, there is no security or encryption.

Other Thoughts:

I have two of these. One is setup as an AP for the house and is plugged into a wired network on the first floor with the cablemodem, router, and some other devices. The other is setup as a client on the second floor, also plugged into a wired network, to provide wired networking to the second floor.

Despite great signal strength and very few other wireless networks in the neighborhood, whichever one is setup to act as the AP will randomly drop out. It eventually recovers but not before all of your connections are lost.

Not bad if all you want to do is browse the web and screw around, anything else kills it.
