    It kept resetting as soon as I installed it. Called Linksys tech support. The first two things they said were "Who told you to buy this router?" and "Don't buy this, it has major problems that we know about". He then suggested another Linksys product but I returned this and picked up the Asus AX6100 single pack. Very happy with that purchase.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
