I set one up for my parents this last week and I have mixed reviews.  When
it works it's great.  However, it seems to be very intermittent.  They live
3000 miles away and I dread the phone calls when the "internet does work" on
the wireless client.  I tried to explain to them that the alternative was
cabling, but they didn't want to invest in that.  So the wireless was the
only real option... they are not 100% pleased at this time.
