There's definitely some shady reviewing going on for Medialink products on Amazon. I don't know if some company representatives just seeded the item with a bunch of glowing reviews then other people started posting more glowing reviews to try to justify their purchase of an overpriced router or what... People keep posting it on slickdeals because of these ridiculous reviews.
As chunli said, it is nothing more than a Tenda W268R as proven by the documentation submitted to the FCC by Medialink. See here
Got suckered in by the positive reviews and bought one from Amazon a couple weeks ago. Be warned. The range is horrendous. The device is in our study (where the cable modem is set up) and from our living room our download speed drops by 10 to 15Mbps. That's unforgivable.
I've already printed out the return mailing label. Just need to get a new router before sending this one off.
To be fair, this thing might be okay if you live in a tiny apartment.
