Packaging was great as always with linksys products. I have used many in the past and they have always been fantastic.
Set-up was easy, I was using a netgear nighthawk before switching this on to do some testing. Speeds are similar since a lot of that depends on your ISP package.
Linksys makes it easy for you to set-up there routers. There set-up process no longer utilizes an old fashioned set-up web page like old routers do.
Let's say you are setting this up in your new house, you have your internet modem and everything ready to go and all you have left to do is set up your router. It shouldn't take you more than 15-25 minutes to do it with this router and linksys's set-up page.
They easily guide you and this router has an endless amount of options for you to customize, such as setting computer priority, blocking a certain website, see what people in your house are doing with your internet, see how many devices, block and kick devices. The list goes on.
There are other routers out there that have the same if not better features than this one here. Between this and the my nighthawk I would keep the nighthawk hands down. Though this isn't a review on the nighthawk I would still recommend this product to anyone wanting a decently price router with a handful of features and it's ease of use set-up.
I am approximately 15-20 yards away from the router and my laptop has no trouble keeping the signal steady. I've never lost connection nor have experienced any spiking during gaming as I have with lower priced routers.
For anyone afraid of drop connections due to walls or distance away from the routers, don't be afraid to give this router a try. You'll like it a lot.
