This an amazing router. No issues whatsoever with signal strength to anywhere in our two story home, regardless of placement. My neighbor says he gets more bars detected on this than his own router...good thing the security is top notch! Resident software lets you know exactly which devices are active and which bands they occupy. This is the first WIFI I've ever owned that actually runs ping tests on wireless devices as fast as through the cable. I bought this at the suggestion of several people, including my internet provider's IT department and they were right! Easy setup; worth every penny. Great price on Overstock, too.
