Ya i had a few fail on me. and i know they have discontinued their line of routers. I ended up with an asus router instead. The n56u and n65u are some of the highest rated routers I highly recommend them. Frys has the 56 on sale for $79.

I tried this router and the drives attached to the USB port(s) were worthless. Copying files it would timeout, disconnect, etc. Easily repeatable and I quickly return it.

I have been using this router for several months though I don't connect anything to the USB ports. I must be lucky - everything works very well.

Wifi - iphone and iPad

ports
1) AVR
2) Blu Ray
3) NAS 1 (QNAP 559p)
4) NAS 2 (QNAP 469L)
5) Mac Mini
6) Tivo 3
7) Plasma TV

I have used DLINK and Apple's router offerings and found this one to be a middle of the road stable performer for my needs. Sorry for others who have had issues but then again, every person I know that has gone through a few routers over the years can remark on one's that didn't work well for them (while others like myself got lucky). I should also say I have played with Netgear and Linksys as well.

When AC is a bit more mature, I'll go back to a good bridged network with only my computer and NAS units being cable attached with most likely something like an ASUS or similar.
