this has many more features then the one offered by our provider. Love the features, it allows me to limit my kid's time, keep them from naughty sites and restrict my network via MAC address. It's been running great for 4(?) years now.
This router may cost a bunch but you get what you pay for in routers. I was sick of spending 80 to 100 on a router and it either dies or it does not handle the traffic well. With more and more wireless devices in our home it has not even skipped a beat. I have a bunch of home automation items running on wireless and it works great. I would recommend spending the money. It is worth it.
We purchased this router because our old one was, well, old and bogged down with everything we were connecting to it. This one brought us into the 21st century and we aren't looking back. My only thing against it was the setup process, which even for someone who can handle technology pretty well was still difficult. Their website isn't well set up and I kept having to reset our network. Once we got it working, it has been fine.
