I recently purchased one of these access points and the only problem I had with it was that the username was blank, not "admin". The password was exactly as I had set it, but for some reason the username was left blank.

Do NOT buy this if you want any kind of support. Yeah, it may be firmware upgradeable, but they haven't touched firmware updates for this thing since 2005 (original release). This unit will NOT work for allowing vpn clients to connect to work environments. In otherwords, no passthru... They are aware of this problem and there is a beta version of the firmware to deal with that, but if you load that beta firmware, you will create other problems. Linksys is too busy focusing on making other products than supporting the ones you paid good money for. Don't buy it!
