I only wish I were a little more geek-smart! This router can do it all, if I could only figure out how! It can have wi-fi 3G/4G access or broadband, is small and efficiently designed. Now if I could just get my older wireless printer to talk to it. They speak different security languages. I know that can be overcome - I just don't know how. But the router is super!
As a bonus, there is an iPhone app that is pretty nice. It shows some basic info and allows for some basic admin tasks. It also have a nifty way to email your guest network info to someone. The app was not a must-have, but it is a nice perk. USB port for shared storage.
This thing works very well so far. Setup was easy just using the web interface. I never load up any setup program so I can't speak to how that does or does not work. Just use this the same way you would any other router and your fine. I have a couple D-Link bridges and those connected with no problems just like the laptops and iPhone's/Pad's.
Hooked up my new router today and couldn't be more pleased. Signal strength is great! Love the 'extras' like being able to set time limits on kids electronics and having a guest password. LOVE IT!
