I bought this to replace another maker's wired router that simply didn't work. I have a mixed Mac / Win network. The size of the unit was much smaller, and the design much cleaner than the other router; I was very pleased with this. The trouble came when I tried to do a manual installation from the main Mac computer. It simply didn't work. So I used the Windows-only installation CD on a desktop running Win 2K, but the process would not complete. Finally, I used a laptop running Win XP and installation finally completed. The process took an entire morning. But there aren't really any other wired DSL routers for a Mac/Windows network, so I didn't have much choice but to endure the process. Now that it's up and running, it was worth the trouble. The claim that several computers can use the router without throughput being negatively affected seems to be true.
