Beautiful looking and easiest set-up ever! I noticed a lot of so so reviews and was wary until I read a professional review praising it’s easy set up. I decided to go for it and boy am I glad I did. I happen to be a novice setting up PC related stuff but this router was cake to set up. Be forwarned; however, my intention was to simply set up wireless with encryption and nothing else. I had no desire to set up a full blown network with file and printer sharing. I simply wanted encrypted wireless for my xp windows pc and vista windows laptop in the house. I figure I can print stuff by using the pc with the printer or using a flash drive so I had no desire in oversteaping my technical boundries.That being said… it was as simple as putting the disk in, following directions printing the encryption code and connecting the router. Easy as cake! I had more trouble configuring the recieving vista windows laptop and xp windows pc! Which wasn’t that hard either. The router is connected to my windows vista desktop and my…

Works fine with Mac For years, we have been happy users of a Netgear MR314 wireless router. But it didn’t reach the farthest corner of our home. In looking at various routers, I found many mixed reviews for the newer Netgear routers, so decided to try the Linksys WRT160N. We use almost nothing but Macs in our home.Setup: Forget the included CD that comes with this router, it is Windows only. It does have the User Guide as a PDF buried in one of the folders. But it is not much help.Instead, just turn on the router, look for the wireless signal (or plug in directly using an ethernet cable), then use FireFox – the current Safari doesn’t work and any changes cause a “server unexpectedly dropped connection” error.Type: 192.168.1.1 in the browser, then user name “linksys” and password “admin” to get the web based setup menus.From there, if you have any questions, click on the “Help” link for the individual pages. The help there is much better than in the User…

Fixed all my problems FINALLY! A router that fixes all of the problems I was having. My old router, a D-Link Draft N had trouble connecting wirelessly with my Dell Laptop and my MacBook Pro. (Draft-N routhers don’t all conform to the same standards.) It did work with my iMac wirelessly and it did OK with my wired connections.So, I decided to tey an Apple Airport Extreme. It worked with all my wireless devices, but supprisingly did not do well passing HD TV Shows from my Media Center PC to my Xbox 360 over a wire!So, after much research I decided to try this Linksys. Since it just hit the market, I figured it would have better Draft-N support.So, with minimal configuration, this routher works with ALL my devices:(I have it setup with WPA/WPA2 Wireless security.)MacBook Pro (Draft-N Wireless)Dell Vostro Laptop (Draft-N)Apple iMAc (Draft-N)Apple iPod Touch (Whatever wireless it uses…)AppleTV (Wireless)Nintendo Wii…
