    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - Works as a router

    - Works as an Access Point

    - Works as a wireless to ethernet converter

    - Antenna is detachable, connector is standard.

    - Decent throughput

    Cons:

    - No DD-WRT or OpenWRT support. Kind of a big deal considering what this could do with it.

    - Web interface programmed in a hurry, only works well with Internet Explorer

    - No 300 Mbps... :-(

    - No one knows who made this or where is the website...

    - ...so no firmware updates.

    OtherThoughts:

    - I haven't opened it yet, but would not be surprised if there were unused antenna connection points to add extra antennas, at least one.

    Bottomline:

    - Yeah, no DD-WRT. But works very well even so, and if you have two you can have a very serviceable 150 Mbps wireless bridge for very little money. I might order a second one if I cannot unbrick my other router...
