I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >> 192.168.100.1

possible issue with freequent connection loss when going over 2 comp on a network are possible issues of collisions on the network meaning that sometimes more often then not, it is possible for two comp to end up recieving same ip address fr modem.
solution: first find out ip range supplied by the router in modem. then statically assign ip address to each comp
this is done by going into tcp/ip properties of either nic or wireless card and set to use following ex
NOTE: IP RANGE USUALLY LAST SET OF NUMBERS IN IP ADDRESSING TIPPICAL RANGE IS BETWEEN 10 TO 99
ip address: 192.168.2.12 (static ip address for computer)
subnetmask: 255.255.255.254 (generic subnetmask)
default gateway: 192.168.2.1 (ip address of router)
