That's the very same one I have.
No problems except;
here in this part of Texas we have "brownouts" or power surges about 2/3
times a week for only a minute or two and for some reason I lose the cable
connection to Road Runner.   I have found that if I turn off the computer
(no power) and unplug the cable modem and unplug the router and wait 10
seconds and then turn every thing back on, my connection comes back up.   I
wonder if someone can explain why?

The "brownouts" I do not understand either.    Someone explained a few years
ago that it was the power company making switches from one light use area
into a heavy use area, but why the brownout.

Or, Maybe it's Enron pulling their dirty tricks.   :-)

  I have one, Elaine.  It has been very dependable & I have had no problems
with it.  Been using for almost 2 1/2 years.  Would not be without it.
