Pros Easy to install using the built in wizzard Reliable Keep it simple
Cons None for in home use
Pros Available at most good hardware outlets!
Cons Badly programmed firmware
Summary When you get your new 3com OfficeConnect home and set it up you will notice that it doesn't work. Despite the home network having been set up perfectly with a proven physical connection and proven PCI cards, the wireless network won't be detectable. Then you try to call tech support. In vein.
Pros You can access the internal web page from anywhere on the Internet, wireless can be switched on and off, host anything through DMZ, lots of security features, A TRUE WORKHORSE!!!
Cons Firewall needs to be stronger.
Pros The 3com wirless router ripped up my linksys wireless router in web surfing activities. The 3com was around $60 cheaper.
Cons It did, however, have just a tad less range and fewer features than the linksys. (Most users won't use forwarding etc. that the 3com lacks)
Summary This router does not include a switch, so when I tried transfering files between two computers, the router crashed. Additionally, the maximum throughput on the router is 500 kbps, so if you have broadband (I have 10mb Internet), you only get to use a portion of your bandwidth. Finally, I had to wait for the router to power up before plugging in my ethernet connection because the device sent errors to my ISP and they temporarily disabled my access. The wireless is great, but the unit lacks serious administrative features. I recommend it for people that are new to wireless, but if you have any computer experience, just buy a linksys, like I should have.
