Pros:

Excellent wireless throughput, but only at very short range (Under 30ft) even with older wireless adapters.

The GUI is very easy to use and navigate and well laid out.

Unfortunately that's about it for pros.

Cons:

Even with the latest firmware (Which is a year old, this device appears to be abandoned by the manufacturer) I had many problems. Firstly the GUI would simply stop working at times. I'd be using it just fine and then it would suddenly just stop responding and if I'd try to refresh it wouldn't reappear. Sometimes I'd have to power cycle it, other times it would come back a few minutes later.

Wireless would drop at around 30 ft for me. Hard drop on multiple devices and then neither the 2.4 or 5 network would be seen until I went back under 30 ft and refreshed whatever device I was using (Android phones, Ipod Touch, Lenovo Laptop). I had far longer range (no dropoffs within my house or in my garden) with my old E4500.

I could not get inbound VPN working even with ports forwarded and VPN passthrough enabled. Switching back to my old E4500 with the same settings worked fine again.

Other Thoughts:

Based on the number of similar and negative reviews for this product there is something inherently wrong with this router. I have the V2 hardware and it seems as bad or worse than the V1.
