Now this is a router! First i would like to start by saying i absolutely love this router. Its WIFI range is great, its dual band so i have choices and i can set up a guest network with the click of my mouse. It has a friendly User interface that allows everyday users to make changes as they see fit. It also allows for media prioritization by simply dragging your computer, or any device to the top of the list or to a separate list. This will ensure that no matter how many devices are connected your chosen device will always get what bandwidth it needs.
Now The IMPORTANT part. Some people including myself have found that the speed coming out of the router to the devices was not as advertised from my Cable company. Directly from the Modem i received 100 MB down but the moment i used the router i was getting only 30. I even used the Built in speed test app in the router. After hours of hunting for the problem i discovered the culprit. The router comes pre programmed...

I must say evaluating a router isn't easy. I spent over 4 hours, making changes, doing tests, and writing this report.
There are two things I'm interested in with a WiFi router. 1) How easy is it to setup. 2) How fast is it.
If you don't like reading long detailed reviews here is the synopsis: The setup was easy, the signal strength was good, and the data transfer rates were good. I recommend this router.

SETUP This is the easiest to setup router I've ever used, and I've had perhaps 10 WiFi routers over the years. I disconnected the previous router, connected all of the cables to this router, and powered it up. With a browser I went to address 192.168.1.1 and logged in (using the username and password from the documentation). I selected the automatic setup and went through a couple of steps, renaming the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and setting my own choice of password. That was pretty much it. All of my WiFi...
I previously had a $39 TP-link router that worked excellently, but I wanted to get a router that could handle working with OpenVPN so that all traffic in my household could go through a VPN when I wanted it to. The TP-link router I had didn't have the memory or processor power to handle this. This Linksys modem is really awesome. Here's why I like it: - It supports DD-WRT open firmware which has a lot more capabilities than existing stock firmware - it has DUAL partitions. You can have one partition with DD-WRT and the other with the stock Linksys firmware. If you prefer to just stick with Linksys firmware, it uses both partitions (newest firmware load in one partition, older on in another). This allows you to recover in case you mess up during an upgrade. Pretty slick. - it is fairly easy to switch between the two partitions with some telnet commands if you're running DD-WRT, or through the GUI if you're using standard Linksys firmware.
