This router performes very well as a wireless unit. great range and outstanding speed. I am getting 250 Mbs with WPA2 security on and it peaks my 250 Mbs cable speed easily. The feature set is very weak and using a usb drive nearly impossible except for sharing music. Can only connect via ftp or through media player making it very difficult to map a drive and use it as a backup or to share non media files with others in the home. Just purchase a network drive with an rj45 connector and forget the usb drive. Print server works fine via usb and is simple to setup. simply install the small software applet and your connected. Regarding opening/closing ports it is overly complex
Very easy to set up multiple networks. Lots of features like blacklisting/whitelisting, device blocking, guest networks, wireless printing, timer. Range increased over my n600 with an internal antenna. Decent build quality, seems sturdy.
I put this network extender in a large bedroom at the other end of the house from our wireless network equipment. This was the only room previously without network access and this extender works great! It is relatively small and blends in with the rest of the wall, so not obtrusive.
