Cons:

- The range is sporadic and would / grow randomly.
- Guest WIFI would cut out randomly
- Normal WIFI would cut out randomly
- The LAN ports would cut out with the guest wifi (huh?)
- Wifi would run slower than the UP/DOWN Speeds of my FiOS Network.

Other Thoughts:

Ive been sick so sorry for the late review.

NOTE:
For these test I use this router for 2 weeks as my main router to make sure I make proper reviews. These reviews are done on my Main network and stress tested through streaming/file transfers/gaming/regular use. I use this router as anyone else would to simulate normal usage to a regular low knowledge / mid knowledge individual.

If none of this means anything to you here is a short summary of my review:

Cons outweigh pros. Look at other Linksys products. This one is not so great.

I make sure the firmware is up to date before benching.
