This router has delivered exceptional performance three years since it was bought. My download wireless connections using a USB Belkin adapter at the desktop is 6.5Mb/dn and 490kb/up. The router was easy to set-up and configure as a secure wireless gateway.

Wow. I just wasted two weeks sending back this router because Linksys could not figure out why it would not except the default password. It was Chrome the whole time. Thanks for posting that
