The buttons on the front of the router have a high quality textured feel to them that produces an audible click when pushed but they require you to get a grip of the router's backside before pushing any of it's buttons. Otherwise the router itself will tip over. I personally would've liked to have seen some extra sensitive buttons or even possibly a touch screen to avoid this just because my router is in a hard to reach place. Either way, they still work just fine.
At first I wasn't sure where I was going to place this router because of it's unusual stance. This was going to replace my existing router that sat on top of my PC but it wouldn't fit since it wouldn't clear a desk drawer above it. Since it is a vertical style router, it really doesn't take up as much space as most traditional flat style routers do so I was able to find a place for it on my desk with no problems.
The WAN port and all four LAN ports on the back side are of the Gigabit variety and support 10/100/1000 Mbps auto switching capability. There is also a small recessed hole that contains a reset button on the far right should you need to reset the router.
