I have had this router for almost two years, and it has worked well. i originally purchased it because of the higher gain (longer) antennas, and I noticed a considerable improvement in signal strength at my fringe locations. The router handles the tasks most home users will ever need, and even some more advanced routing features. The Web based user interface is designed for people knowing a bit about routers, but even then there is a simple wizard style of interface to get most people running. The router is not the most advanced unit in that it doesn't support IPV6, external storage/printing, multiple SSIDs, but that's to be expected for a $30 (street price) router. If you are looking for a low cost "N" dual band router with extended range this is one of the best values.
