Work perfect as a bridge with TV, Skybox and bluray player.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great little thing if you want to make wireless connection between two places in your house. It's easy to make it working as a 4-ports bridge, using perfect instrution from i.e. http://www.maximumpc.com/forum​s/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=114​319 .
It's pointless to buy 1-port wifi adapter from Sky (60 pounds!), you can have 4-ports bridge for 12 pounds. Of course you need a bit of experience in network configuration.

Why these are better than new.

The thing about "vanilla" out-of-the-box modems/routers is that nearly all manufacturers use some flavour of linux O/S inside ** BUT ** then lock out the customer. It's like buying a car and being told you can't open the hood. Sure, many people do not want to 'tinker' under the hood. But, what about those of us who either want to do it ourselves, or are lucky enough to have friends who have a mechanical/technical bent?
DD-WRT is an **OPEN** (read 'can be tinkered with') O/S that is designed to allow one to add/tweak new features.
Many of the most common uses one might want to put the router to - have been programmed and are available to 'just plug in'.
If you are incredibly technical and you **KNOW** that you will NEVER imagine a new feature you want in your modem/router - then fine! - buy a Locked, proprietary modem.
If your mind is a little bit more open and you think that 'maybe, one day, I just might'..... then DD-WRT modem/routers what you should choose.

DD-WRT Linksys!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great router, maybe not N but still serves you well.. Install the firmware DD-WRT. Then a whole new world is at you finger tips. Just google it!...

Good product with loads of features

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bought this to get Sky+ Anytime without having to run a cable from my computer room to the TV. Got a mate to set-up this facility as I'm not that technically minded but it works perfectly.

A very robust rooter, versitile and easy to use. Can be flashed with custom rom to provide even more services. Highly recommend.
