Good product, I had to read the instructions a couple of times, but I think that might be me being thick. I wanted a Wi-Fi extender with wired ports and it fulfils the job perfectly, and the Wi-Fi is so good I often don't bother with the wired connections. Good price, arrived quickly and fairly easy to set up (dead easy if using it just as a router).

Used this to replace my Virgin Media Hub as was having issues with connections dropping. Set VM hub to modem mode and connected this. Set up was a doddle, really quick and simple interface with advice along the way. Set network name and password as the same as that which my VM hub had used and everything reconnected instantly. Handy little app which gives you an overview of everything connected to the router too and allows change of basic settings. No issues at all since I installed it so very happy. Wish I'd done it sooner to be honest.
