    That looks great Tony except for the brand but I would have put this in Promotions area also as the price is real good as well as the item. They make some really cheap bad routers though Tony, I hope this product lasts a year because most of the routers I have seen from them don't work out of the box for long if at all.

    Can't speak to the brand. I like what this unit does. I have a customer who needs both Ethernet and wireless in a room on the other end of the house. This should work. I'm testing it out at my place and I'm happy with the setup and performance.

    I picked it up at Micro Center. They have aisles and shelves of networking gear. There were very few products that provided both Ethernet and an access point. I also picked up a TRENDnet TPL-410APK. It was a little more expensive. What is your opinion of TRENDnet?

    Now you have come to one I really hate. Dan told me one time that with the end of Linksys, he had moved to the better line of Trend Net and since I had no clue they had a better line I bought one. I returned it the next day and I think it was the poorest router I have ever handled. Their regular line I throw away and install DLink wherever I go but honestly I am not thrilled with DLink any more either. It is really tough to find a good quality router anymore. I personally have been using Cisco Small Business Division and they are a bit pricey but at least they last quite a while.
