Pros Works... but DON'T use the CD or software that comes with it, it will mess up your wireless devices.
It creates conflicts and is pretty useless unless you PAY THEM for it.
Cons WINDOWS and most laptops with wireless already come with the software to connect. DO NOT INSTALL the network magic software included, it will mess up your wireless software already included with windows or your laptop.
Summary Router works fine, DO NOT USE the installation CD or the Ntwork Magic software .. which is only a TRIAL version, it will keep asking you to upgrade to a paid version.. 50 dollars a year.. for something YOU ALREADY HAVE.
They should NOT include this network magic software with the package.
Pros Easy Setup
Cons None so far.
Summary This is a great basic wireless N router at an affordable price. I don't understand these 1-star reviews, they seem to be people who didn't know what they were getting and were expecting too much.
If you run a business, this is not the router for you. This is a router for a simple recreational home network with a couple of computers and a device or two. The average consumer doesn't need a router for a dozen different computers and devices. The average consumer doesn't need to worry about "Stealth" Ports.
It took me about 10 minutes to get my wireless network set up and running on two laptops, an Xbox 360, and two iPod Touchs.
The software that comes with it guides you through everything. Just put in the CD, follow the instructions and you're done!
Pros Low price, good quality
Cons Not the best antenna. Network magic sucks
Summary i would recommend to the average user wanting wireless n
Pros Good solid signal.
Easy to configure if you have a basic network knowledge and can read instructions.
Cons Reset button does not reset!
Network magic software not necessary.
No support for multiple SSID's (Wireless networks)
No support for multiple encryption levels (legacy devices on WPA2 networks)
Summary Generally solid and stable router with basic capabilities, but be aware of a few issues/limitations.
If you ever need to reset the router back to default settings, you need to unplug everything from the router and then plug in the power and network cables one at a time WHILE holding in the reset button! I dont know if this is a problem with ALL WRT120N routers, but it is certainly documented elsewhere on the web and I found this method after hours of frustration over the failed reset.
We found that our iPad occasionally 'forgets' the wireless signal to the WRT120N and requires the password to be manually entered to allow authentication back onto our wireless network.
From www.cultofmac.com: "According to Apple, the iPad might not automatically rejoin known WiFi networks using third-party routers that are dual-band capable (802.11 b/g and 802.11 n) when each band's network uses the same name or use different security settings."

The WRT120N does not support multiple SSID's, so the fix suggested in the above link does not apply to this device but may shed some light on a known issue.
The WRT120N also does not support legacy security on a WPA2 network, which means there is no availability to devices that are only capable of WEP to allow connection to the existing WPA2 network, some might say this is a better security feature and I tend to agree, however if the WEP device is not upgradable then you either need to reduce your overall network security on the WRT120N to 128 bit WEP(bad idea), or upgrade to a wireless router that has this feature so you can retain the best levels of security where possible.
I still use this router on my home network and am happy with its overall stability, however after spending time troubleshooting and researching the device I have found it is better to know its limitations and live with them or possibly look at upgrading in the near future.
Pros Well...tell me about it...
Cons Totally useless....cannot even hold a connection properly on windows 7 64bit...
Summary Seriously...did everything I could but still drops in internet connection...
If it does not support the OS, state so on the freaking box...and for its price...it is really not worth it...
I will rather recommend other competitive brands for it....
