"nice ....it's ok...Distance from router: On average, I was able to travel about 55ft away from the base (including upstairs, down stairs and just outside my home) and still get exceptional signal strength even with walls and brick between the device and the router....For connectivity on the router itself, it marks off the important checkboxes - USB 3 connection for a hard drive or flash drive, USB 2 for a printer or another flash or hard drive that doesn't need to transfer data as fast, a gigabit ethernet connection to whatever your internet connection is brought into your home with, and a 4 port gigabit ethernet switch."

"I love...Love it...Easy setup, reliable basis for my home network....On a personal note, I prefer Linksys' WRT style case, as the indicator LEDs are visible when the unit's located up and in the clear for best range and operation; however, while the WRT case may be more practical for some settings, it's not as fashionable as the EA style case, which can be wall mounted."

"not bad...IT'S OK...This wireless router is to mange and me the expectations base upon the salesman's recommendation....With the recent rollback of net neutrality I bought this to run as a dedicated VPN router, big mistake... The router overall performs very will without lag and maintained a very fast overall in network speed, however the PTPP protocol needs to reestablish itself about every 10-15min causing a complete loss of internet usage in the time frame."

"No lag....Love it!...Wifi will drop on a consistant basis every few hours at random times....This router appears to be the same as the WRT3200ACM that Linksys already released and is a fairly solid router, however on top of the router they added a network prioritization engine that is aimed at gamers and I think they did a good job, at least with the tests I've been able to do."
