Lawrence, Devon

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
An easy to set up router. It was easy to diagnose setup problems with pop-up help screens telling you why the router is not connecting. There is a good Wifi signal throughout the house (certainly compared to our other two previous routers, a Belkin and an Edimax). I haven't had to play around with the settings since setting it up which is a minor miracle in itself.
Bad points:
No bad points so far, it's a better router up than anything I have had previously, and better than I was expecting. The setup software gets 9/10 from me for ease of use.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It can run DD-WRT Firmware, you will struggle to find any router with more flash memory than this 128MB. It's also very fast (480Mhz CPU).
Bad points:
Heat - it's not actually an issue really, but if you are adventurous like me, you'll want to put some heatsinks over those ram chips to keep it nice and cool, i didn't see the need to use active cooling. Passive worked fine for me.

Stephen,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is an amazing bit of kit with probably every bell and whistle you will ever need and then some.
Bad points:
A simplified interface which believe it or not causes complications when setting things up. If you have a technical background you will love it. If however you are NOT technically minded you could struggle. Also this ROUTER NEEDS a MODEM to work. Unfortunately this was not mentioned.
