    The commercial is funny, but I have no real issue with my network. If anything, I might add another router towards the back of my house to get a better signal in the back yard, but inside the house, I have no issue with signal or speed. For a while, I had a guest network setup with the domain of the website for my computer repair business. You could just barely get the signal across the street where there's a gas station and a Subway, with outdoor seating. I had friends text me more than once that they were on my network.

    The parental controls seem kinda neat, but I'm not a point where that's a concern with my stepson yet. Even when I get to that point, I work in IT. I'm not concerned.

    This seems like a nice option for folks that aren't into managing their own network as closely as I do though.

    I manage my network, but this product would help me quite a bit as all my walls are concrete. Parts of my house barely gets a signal.
    I also feel $299 is a fair price for 3 units as their competition is charging $499.

    Oh yeah. That's a great point. I forget not everyone lives in a wood-frame house like I do. ;)

    So basically you're just buying a network extender with fancy permissions?

    What you supposedly get is a tuned network. I have used expanders/access points, and never get near the same speed as the main unit.
    They say you get the fastest WIFI at all points with this system.

    Buy it and let me know. I have a couple clients who could use it if that's true.

    My network extender drops to G but it's still plenty fast for streaming music to the firepit.
