    Installation took about 1/2 hour. CD ROM installation would not work with Windows 7 Starter. Found an online version and was able to complete setup. Router working fine with good coverage throughout my house. Have not been able to figure out how to disable the wireless radio while keeping power to the router. Have emailed tech support but so far no answer. Overall seems to be worth the price.
