Get your facts right. This device does NOT offer WPA2 or AES encryption. The best it does is WPA with TKIP encryption.

I use mine solely as a wireless access point. With a decent antenna, especially a directional one, I have no problem getting 54Mbps.

I feel adequately secure using a 63 character random all-printing-characters passphrase.

As a wireless access point, this device is reliable and trouble free.
