Setup at first was a problem. The software provided requires XP SP3 or later. Software cannot be used with XP 64 bit, or earlier operating systems. However, software can be ignored, and router setup using a browser with URL http://192.168.1.1
Setup and utility screens are full featured and fairly self evident to navigate. All the options you need for setting up your network are present. Screens are a bit more complicted than Netgear screens. Odd range of dynamically assigned IP addresses permitted, but this can be changed.
Odd assignment of IP addresses in use. Seems to remember the IP addresses of computers previously connected and then removed from the network. Have to go into the router setup to remove these. If a computer ends up connected with both wireless and copper wire two IP addresses are assigned. Then if the wireless is turned off the copper wire connection gets two IP addresses instead of the the wireless IP address being removed. This has to be corrected manually. So operation/software is not convenient for a network where computers are taken on/off the network.
Strong signal with long range. When used in an industrial building (lots of concrete and metal in the building) we find the signal reaches one floor up and 100 feet distant.
Cosmetics will not last. Made of the common shiny plastic that many small computer products are made of. Attracts fingerprints and dirt like you know what attracts flies. Cannot be cleaned without scratching, and end up looking like junk in no time at all, like that material always does.
Slim profile. Installation is horizontal and takes up about 1/3 square foot. No external antennas. Power brick wire is short which may limit placement, depending on availability of plugstrips/receptacles where you want to place it. Narrow profile brick fits in a plugstrip without blocking an adjacent receptacle.
