How does the device fair after a month or longer? Looking to replace the DSL modem Verizon supplied. Have to reset it now and then after two years. Figured if I was going to do that I should replace my wirelss router (had it even longer) as well and see if I can combine the two.
The only device I can find with a lot of reviews is this one. However there seems to be a quality control problem with the device. It either doesn't work and has to be replaced or it does work but it seems it only works for so long.
Has anyone had the device for more then a few months? How does it work?

It is still working. The only thing that happens is, once a day without fail if there are too many devices and it has too much going on we will need to reboot it once. Other than that it's been fantastic.
Well, I just got mine today. I'll let you know in a month! :)
So far though there is a huge difference between my old modem/router combo than this. For starters, I can actually get NAT Type 2 on my PS3 vs. being forced on Type 3 with whatever junk Frontier gave us. I'm really liking this unit so far and hopefully can say good things about it in the next month to come.
That's not good. Thanks for the info. I am leasing an 4 year old wireless G Actiontech PK5000 router from Centurylink (it is labeled Qwest). It costs a bit monthly but NEVER has to be rebooted and is rock solid - and I run 5-6 devices all the time, both wired and wireless. Think I will just get a dual band wireless N router and connect it for faster wireless....
What I'd like to do is install tomato firmware or something and see if that helps out or if I would need to have it reboot at a specific time. Anyone know if any of the third party firmwares like tomato work?
