Setup is extremely easy, hardwired connection works fine. Wireless connection drops out several times a day, and router must be rebooted. Belkin support tried to resolve issue but could not provide much help. Their only suggestion that helped the router stay connected was to change MTU setting to 1400, which ended up slowing the wireless speed to 10 Mb/s.
