Has a fairly consistent signal too for wireless.
Although its not a combined router and modem, it was configured by default with an IP of 192.168.1.1, which is the IP most modems use. Since it was the only router on test not to use 192.168.0.1 out of the box, we had a very frustrating half hour trying to connect to the internet before we realised the problem.

So nowadays i use a WAP54G access point to get clients on my wireless network , and an IPCop firewall (Linux based firewall) which is totally awesome
Running bittorrent with 1500 connections, surfing, chatting and playing a game all with no problems whatsoever - also with plug ins it supports QoS (actually 2 different types of QoS depending on the plug in) as well as bandwidth monitoring features and so on and so forth
I do wonder what these £100 routers provide over the £50/60 WRT54G though ... (except no dieing when using bittorrent, although that's fixed on newer models)
