Great Product without RFI
This is a great product. It goes together quickly, as most hubs do, but the big difference with this product vs other hubs is the technology used to implement it and the effect running it in your home has on other equipment, like stereos, radios, and TV. Although the FCC has a certification process, it's pretty much a bogus standard with the fox in the henhouse certification (ie manufacturers doing it themselves) with the result that many hubs create so much RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) that they make CB, HAM Radio, TV, and Broadcast AM and even sometimes FM, unusable in the general area of the network. This Linksys product, like the others I've used, deployed, and recommended in the past, is very very "quiet". After replacing my SMC hub with the Linksys hub, all of the radio and tv interference dissapeared. I strongly recommend this device because you will be helping to keep our RF environment clean. Further, while no one seems to really care yet, the radiation from the devices that are not "quiet" from an RF perspective probably is a long term health issue. I have no connection with Linksys, Electrical Engineer with almost 30 years of experience, and Ham Radio operator for over 30 years.
