A friend of mine came over yesterday. Wanted to check out the new router. Be brought his new Galaxy phone over. Wanted to test the range of the router with his phone. He walk up the street about 150-200 yards. Came back and said he got 3 bars before loosing single at the max distance. Was able to surf and do anything with 3 bars. I had the router running with Smart Connect enabled. I don't know what frequency he was on while up the road. He just said he was amazed at the range.  ;D He's gonna get one.

USB printers do work on this router:

The SharePort PC or Mac application is needed to connect to the printer.
