Performance

I bought this router because it was a great value for the number of features that it has. Overall, I have been very pleased. It performs very well and is generally something I can just take for granted. I use many of the features including port forwarding, dynamic dns, and the print server. The print server works very well and was easy to set up. My only complaint is that the configuration utility, which is done through http, becomes unavailable after the router has been running for a few weeks. Turning the power off and then on again will fix this but since I log into it regularly, it is somewhat of a hassle. Also, the SNMP support is very minimal. This product would be best for someone who needs a very simple home setup with a parallel port print server.
