I reasearched for some time comparing the different G+ routers, and decided on to try this one. I am glad I did! I am not using the matching MaxG card in my computer, but the regular Intel wireless G that my laptop came with built in. In my testing, I get a full 54 meg connection in all corners of my 2000+ square foot home with no signal degradation at all. I then took my laptop outside for a walk around the neighborhood. I was able to go about 150 feet from my house before the signal and speed started to degrade. AT over 200 feet, and literally through the lenght of my enitre house and the home next door (approximately 15+ walls, 2 made of brick, and since it was downhill, I was about 15 to 20 feet below the router's hight) my signal strength stayed at Good, and kept a 5.5 meg speed. I couldn't ask for more. Add to that the built in USB printer port, and this unit is a great deal. Check out PCWorld's review on routers from either June or July of 2005, and you too will be impressed. Bottom line? If you are looking for a good home wireless network solution full of features, them this one is for you. I would definitely buy it again.

For two i had troubles finding a reliable easy to install router. Then i tried US-Robotics and it is really the best. I tried before LinkSys and NetGear but they where nothing compared to this router. you will got the full speed u expect overl a long distance and u will have a wireless print server in the same device.
