Works good, only had one glitch hooking it up. It uses the same standard IP as my HughesNet modem, 192.168.0.1, that conflict caused the two not to work together...I changed the IP of the D-Link in the admin console and everything works great. I would imagine that is the problem some others are having. This D-Link's range is lacking a little but it states that it is intended for apartments on the box. It does not however state that in the description on Amazon. The USB device was equally easy to set up and use. Overall I am happy with the purchase and would recommend it.
I also downloaded new firmware from DD-WRT (Google it). It is much more comprehensive than the stock D-Link software and allows you to modify settings that you dont have access to normally-such as TX Power. I am an IT guy so it was a really simple process, but if you don't follow the instructions you can end up with a dead router. I would not recommend this to the average user, it may also void the warranty.
