First, this review concerns the use of this router in a small, studio apartment, so it does not concern the range that this unit can project. That being said, this is a great unit for those who want a no-frills, high-speed router that is easy to setup and offers great new features. If you are a networking guru or enjoy the classic interface of Linksys routers, you will not like this unit. If you are like me, and understand all those settings, but would rather have something less time consuming to setup, this router is perfect. The setup took approximately half an hour, which consisted of plugging it in, and following the instructions provided. The software that this router comes is with is great if you don't want to spend hours customizing your DNS, DHCP or other information. The dual broadcast feature is also nice, but a word of caution. If you are using a wireless printer with this router, your devices must be connected to the same SSID that the printer is connected to, otherwise, you will not be able to find it. This is especially true for Mac devices, as I had some trouble finding the printer at first, but once I connected to other 5ghz SSID, I had no problems printing from my Mac laptops. Overall, this is a great unit for ppl who do not want to spend hours tinkering with their network settings, but want the latest speeds that the AC technology offers. Seriously, the AC technology is leaps and bounds better than the old N wireless router I had. Worth the upgrade.
