I got one of these and had a lot of problem getting it to work. ADSL and router functionality works fine (except the router can't manage broadcast of WOL packets).
The Wi-Fi is very poor. Not very powerful (avoid if you have thick walls). Moreover, connection keeps dropping when doing long file transfers. Go check linksysinfo.org for more details on problems encountered with this router
