This review is from: Linksys EA4500 App Enabled N900 Dual-Band Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB
Pros: Easy to configure, fast, solid.
gigabit networking, dual band N router.
As a networking professional, I usually leave my home network with cheap junky equipment pieced together. finally decided I had enough and bought this, Cisco is top of the line, you can't get better.
Cons: Does support VLANs or true firewall functionality you would find in the ASA line, but it doesn't cost thousands of dollars!
Other Thoughts: Not sure why people complain about Cisco Cloud Connect, it's pretty awesome if you ask me... I love cloud technology for managing my devices, makes it very easy. If you choose a secure password no reason to be concerned.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZyXEL NBG5715 Simultaneous Dual-Band Wireless N900 Media Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: Doesn't have a stable operating system. I'm on my second unit in 3 months, constant lock ups, doesn't pass NAT (WAN to LAN) after a few hours. ZyXEL Support doesn't know why this is, can't find anything wrong with my original unit, so they are sending refund.
Maybe it can't handle high speed internet? I have 150mbps Verizon FiOS service...
Other Thoughts: Hardware specs look good, running on OpenWRT, you would think it should work, but it's junk. Don't buy this unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tuner works great, occasionally needed to reboot computer to get it to re-recognize.
Love the cable card system, no more HD access or DVR fees for me!
Stream from Windows 7 desktop to Xbox 360 for all TV and recordings.
Cons: It stopped working. Currently RMA in process with Ceton, which has been a very good experience.
Set-up can be a pain. I would not recommend a TV Tuner for just anyone. If you are going to use a Media Center Extender, you need to know about TCP Optimization to stream HD, spent many hours tweaking my system to get it just right.
USB Version dropped fairly frequently, Ceton is swapping for PCIe, which at the time of my purchase was almost double the USB version, hoping that fixes it.
Other Thoughts: I wish cable companies wouldn't be SO GREEDY. there is no reason for whole home DVR to cost what it does.
If you are good with networks and computers, this is an easy way to save
