Ease of Use:
Pros:Dual bands and radios increases overall throughput, and separates traffic.
Cons:Bad reception, pure and simple.
I bought the WRT610n because I was experiencing reception problems on my laptop. The problem turned out to be the antenna on my laptop -- a poor connection. But after a couple of weeks of using the WRT610n, I have discovered that the reception on the WRT610n is much worse the my previous DLink Gamer's Lounge, and I've switched back. Maybe the lack of external antennas is responsible for low signal gain, but my wife complained about losing internet connectivy about every 30 minutes with this router, and at very short distances (30-40 feet), too. Huge let down. Maybe Linksys can fix the problem with a firmware update, but until then, don't walk, run away from the WRT610n as fast as you can.
