I know my way round networking, and still it took me a fair bit of time to get this thing working. The main probably is trying to get into the config page in the first place. With a lot of messing around with the included CD which supposedly gets your PC talking to the router even if it's on different subnets, but it didn't want to play.
It somehow worked about a lot of restarting the router and changing my PC's subnet, still not sure how I got into the config page, just happy I did.
I am actually only using it was a wireless access point, so I can't comment on the router features.
In terms of wireless performance, it's decent. I was worried that without any external antenna the signal strength might suffer, but I can report it's giving me better signals than my aging 'g' router which does have an external antenna.
The signal seems stable as well, never had to reset it in the few weeks I've had it, and never loses signal, even with it on the ground floor and me in the loft.
I had a Buffalo AirStation before this one which is still working. The only reason why I changed was because my son was draining bandwidth with his PS3. So I bought the Nfiniti which has solved the problem. My PC runs as it should, his PC runs as it should and his PS3 no longer drains the bandwidth.
"How's that?" I hear you ask... Simple...
My PC is hardwired to the Surfboard modem. His PC works via a 'TRIXES' wireless dongle, (also purchased through AMAZON). His PS3 has it's own built in wireless receiver.
Now, eventhough you would expect my PC to take presidence because it is hardwired, you would be wrong. Divide G-Band by three and everything slows down, hardwired or wireless. Admittedly I do notice that wireless seems to take presidence over hardwire. So we divide G-Band with N-Band, his PS3 on G-Band, his PC on wireless N-Band and my PC hardwired... well, it works for me. Everything is running as fast as it should and no single item seems to be draining the bandwidth.
One last thing... I'm not super technically minded, I just plugged the Nfiniti in, connected the various connections and everything else fell into place.
I was pleasantly surprised by it's appearance when I opened the box and managed to get it up an running very quickly indeed. I'm a cable customer so it was just a matter of clicking the physical switch on it to "on" and going into the firmware (192.168.11.1) Internet/LAN set up tab. If you've set the switch correctly you'll see a "Method of Acquiring IP Address" option. Set this to "Acquire an IP Address Automatically from a DHCP Server" and restart the cable modem and router. Job done.
Performance wise it's miles in front of the G54 which is not surprising seeing as it's a 'N' router. I got great results all over the house with my old laptop, tablet, phone and ipod touch all getting near my limit of 10Mbs on speedtest.net. I also have a network switch which is hard wired and all the devices connected to this are working perfectly too.
All in all a total bargain!
So for example I've set it up so that my laptop has unrestricted 24*7 access whilst my kids are limited to 07:00 and 21:00, outside those hours their laptops will not connect....result is the kids get some sleep and we all benefit. Combine this capability with a DNS service, such as OpenDNS, that you can easily configure to block access to sites unsuitable for children and you have a cheap way of protecting your kids from the perils of the internet. It is a combination that I highly commend to any parent concerned about what their children are accessing.
As an added bonus this router is easily configured to be an access point/wireless bridge. I think that the issues some reviewers have had configuring this device have been caused by them not setting the small switch that selects between Router/Access Point or Automatic modes. If you're having problems set this switch to Router and NOT Auto, then try again.
