        Looks ok but that's about it
        Very poor wifi range. Exchanged first router and the second wasn't any better.

        I should have asked for a refund, but didn't.

        I ended up buying two net gear range extenders to get a strong signal. The router only gave me five yards line of sight signal before starting to drop off.
