It outperforms my powerline/homeplug adapters on newish wiring (they only reach around 120mbit). It's certainly not the most capable/tweakable router out there, but it does the job well enough for me not to feel compelled to switch it to modem mode and add a dedicated wifi box. The physical design is terrible though - ethernet cables sticking out of one edge, and the fibre cable entering at 90 degrees to it. It means the thing seems to need about a cubic metre just to sit in! Cheers, Dan -- Dan Fairs | dan.fairs at gmail.com | @danfairs | secondsync.com
