"Better than expected after reviews here and at BestBuy."3.5 starson by UPBull340
Pros: Small footprint vs what I had. Easy set up with my cox internet service provider where my LinkSys wasn't. I find the signal stength better than my previous router. Easy access to web for advanced features.
Cons: Don't care for all the blue lights on the front of the unit. But not a deal breaker.
Summary: Returned my dual band LinkSys after it stopped working after 3 months. Found set up quick. I like the USB network. Easier to configure and get up and running vs my LinkSys. I don't find the USB connection that slow. And I don't find the unit bulky. I like how it takes up less space that my saucer shaped LinkSys. I'm very happy with my purchase. I also like the fact that my connection speed over the network is faster than what I had before and I don't miss the dual band as I could never use the 5g effectively from 50' so I was always using the 2.4g. So much for dual band.
