Great DD-WRT platform

I immediately loaded open source Linux based firmware, DD-WRT. This allows many handy options such as using the router as a bridge or range extending repeater. Basic router was nicely packed with a small usb memory stick with automated setup (I didn't need or use) and documentation (also not relevant since it covers only firmware I didn't use). $25 Black-Friday price was a good deal. I took advantage of free shipping to the store rather than fight the crowds on BF.
DD-WRT firmware on Cisco Valet

Cisco - Valet Wireless Hotspot router was very easy to setup.

Didn't Work For Me

Wow! I waited almost to weeks to have this delivered to the store. My old Router, a D-Link 615 is almost on it's last leg. It keeps dropping the connection. It use to work fine. After reading all the reviews on the Cisco M10, it looked like that was the one that would work for me. HA! I could get it to connect to my laptop but NOT the wife's laptop for more then about 20 minutes. We were only like 20 feet to the router. I have two laptops and one desktop. I never even got to that point of trying it on our desktop. Seems it was either hers or mine but not both for longer then 15-20 minutes. Handy little USB stick but a CD would have worked just as well and probably would have been cheaper. I am no IT Tech but the instructions are really very simple so no problem with that. When I couldn't even get it to work the way we wanted I took it back to Walmart. VERY easy return. I'm not sure what kind of a router now to try now. Sorry for any mistakes in this review. It's the 1st one I have ever written.

Simply Put, The easiest router to hook up ever!

This thing is amazing, In all of 3 minutes I got the laptop, Xbox 360 and Wii connected with absolutely no problems whatsoever! just plug in the cord from your modem, plug the power supply in and then insert the supplied flash drive in your computer and wham! done in minutes! the easiest router ever to get connected with period. I've had belkin and net gear and this is far superior and just fool proof in its installation!!! BUY THIS!!! =D

Works great with DD-WRT, also without

While not quite as good as the Linksys E2000, due to a slightly lower power single-band transceiver, but nearly identical in hardware to the E1000, the Cisco M10 is a great router from the hardware standpoint. While I didn't use the Valet software that comes with it, I have heard it is quite good, however, I flashed each router I purchased to DD-WRT's open source firmware, in order to use them in a wireless distribution system (WDS). I set this up with the first batch of these routers I bought last year, and later added several more to the setup, and have had great success with speed and reliability. I think that even for a much higher price, this would be an excellent deal, and it is a steal for the $25 and $26 prices I purchased them for at Wal-Mart, and walmart.com, respectively. I would definitely recommend this router for a variety of uses, especially if this price stays this low, and in fact I purchased several extras for friends, who have all been very pleased with them as well.

Awesome!!!

This wireless router truly works as advertised. I was very skeptical when I purchased, as I really douted that it would be this easy to setup a secured wireless network. My old wireless router took hours to get working, and still was never able to have a secured network. I installed the Cisco Valet and using the included "Easy Setup Key", I was on a secured network in less than five minutes!! I setup three more wireless computers in less than five minutes each. I highly recommend this product!! 5 STARS

Nice Cheap and works like it should

Bought this on the fly to replace a very old dieing router. Since I plugged it in and installed the item using the dongle that came with it the Router works like a charm. It even has a setup guide for those not as tech literate as others making it easy for beginners. Also Cisco home runs you through a simple process for setting up whatever product your trying to connect to the router. I had my laptop and two game systems up and linked to the router in less than half an hour. There is also a guest feature on the router in case you have guests and they want to get on for a day. It also has parental controls for people who do not want their kids on the internet after a certain time. It has given me good signal strength as well throughout the house. The lights are a BRIGHT blue so you may want to have a way to hide it if you sleep in the room with the router. Really there are no other problems I have seen or had with this product and happy to have this router and will recommend it to others.

Easy Set-up

I found this router extremely simple to set up. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the wireless signal was not quite as strong as I had hoped. I mainly bought it to have wireless for my new Blue Ray player so I could instantly stream netflix. The router is upstairs, and the Blue Ray player is downstairs, in a cabinet. At first it was not getting a signal, but I was able to move the router around a bit, and now it usually gets a good signal.....granted, it is beaming not just all the way downstairs, but also through a cabinet.

good router for the price point

Before you begin to install the router. It is very advisable to temporarily disable both your anti-virus software and firewall for a short period of time and re-activate them after a successful install. I had problems getting the router to work initially and had to call Cisco's 24/7 toll-free number and experienced a three-minute wait time (great for 9 PM EST), and a English speaking tech support person who was extremely knowledgeable with the product line / and it's relationship to Windows 7. Once we figured out that the anti-virus software and firewall software was prohibiting the install and disabled it, the install went very smoothly and afterwards, reactivated the anti-virus software and firewall Other features include nice aesthetics, great packing, and easy setup / administration, plus you also receive a short cat5 ethernet cable to go between the cable modem and CISCO VALET.

Cisco Valet Router

absolutely a great buy! So simple to establish a full network. One little jump drive does it all....laptops, desktops, printers.....I couldn't believe how easy it was. I tried cheaper routers and did not like the way you had to keep running back and forth and writing things down. Took me about 20 minutes to do 2 laptops , 2 desktops, and a printer!!
