Very fast for video streaming over the N Band. Cheap! I got the DMA2200 from Newegg with a free printer for $129. Got the WRT610N from Buy.com for $137
Setup was horrible - spent many hours on the phone with Linksys

I had a problem with the first WRT610N that was shipped to me. After many hours on the chat line, and not being able to get the USB attached storage to appear on my network(Vista Home Premium), they sent me another new unit. That one worked extremely well and I?ve been using it for a week. I?ve even done a disk image backup of a portable over the ?G? network to the USB attached drive. The Linksys support line is 866-509-7452 but I found the chat to be very good. Make sure you have your serial number as they will ask for that.
I primarily bought the unit to use with a Linksys DMA2200 Media Extender. That did not go well either but Linksys was very helpful over the phone and after many setting changes, that unit is also working very well. Settings on the router to make DMA2200 work include:
Basic Wireless ? Set to Manual, Disable 5 GHz, Set 2.4 GHz Network Mode to Mixed, Set Radio Band to Wide, Set Wide Channel to 6, set Standard channel to 8
Set Wireless security to WPA2-Personal
Advanced Wireless Settings: (on both channels) Disable Frame Burst, Set Beacon Interval to 50, RTS Threshold to 2304
On the DMA2200, go to setting and reset to factory defaults under General Tab, walk through the setup screens. Then go to your PC and add the media Extender. Then power off the extender, Power off router for 1 minute. The power on router, Reboot PC, power on Extender and everything worked for me.
Once everything is working, you can go back to the router setup and enable the 5Ghz channel which now will work well with the media extender.
