This thing is terrible for customization. So far I tried to enable three types of port forwarding (http, vpn, p2p) and 90% of the time, the forwarding page won't even load. I suppose I have been spoiled with the WRT54G, but it seems to me that something as simple as setting up an home network should not require an IT certificate. Basic configuration should be something that can be accomplished by anyone. Now here I am with FIOS, and a 10MB internet connection that is only good for browsing the web. Way to go Zoomtown and Cincinnati Bell.
