Detailed review
I've owned 2 or 3 of this model for home and business. It just worked well. It has enough features to run a small business on. And it was very affordable for what it does.

I think at this point though, it's like EVERYBODY has one. And with 99% of home users just leaving it to the defaults, they all tend to be on the same base frequency. This router has about 10 frequencies in the 2.4 GHz range, but who changes those. With it being so common, it's gotten very crowded in that frequency range. Not only with neighbors' wireless, but also many other tech gadgets in that range like cordless phones or wireless video.

I'd have to say switch to wireless N now instead of buying this. New laptops all support N or have the option... get it. Don't bother with G anymore, it's so over crowded.
