Yes, I am using it here. I run with the 5 gHz link.  I also have a 1 tB HD attached to it. The WiFi is just OK.   After about 45 minutes of connection, it locks up.  Have to switch to another access point to continue my email or browsing session.   

Why do you ask?   -=Brian, W9HLQ=-

Have two here, one for connection and DHCP, the other for range extension upstairs. Both are very solid and have been running for years.

I have two here as well. Easy to set up, range with two covers my house and deck. No problems with LAN remote through 5GHz WiFi.

The first one is set up as a router with a 3 TB USB drive connected. Second one is a range extender. Very similar to George's setup.

One note- get the latest version which supports 802.11 AC
