I have no idea what any of this stuff does except internet doesn't show up in your house unless you have one. So they're pretty important.

What do you look for in a router these days?
Since it gets its data from the RJ11 port, I am assuming the TD-W8101G cannot be used without a DSL connection.
In other words, unless the bridge mode can be configured to extend a network connected to the RJ45 LAN port or WiFi, I don't think you can use this only as a router or range extender. Correct me if I'm wrong...
Make sure the antenna on your router is detachable before you buy the directional antenna.
I owned the TP Powerline kit, after 2 months it stopped working. I tried resets, different outlets, switching them around. Ended up getting a refund from Amazon. Just my 2 cents.
The Directional Antenna uses a RP-SMA Male connector which works with devices with a RP-SMA Female connector (as stated in the description). If your router uses a RP-TNC connection, like the Linksys WRT54G series, grab this adapter from Amazon.
No Fair! I really want to get these range extenders but I don't want to spend above what Woot's selling them for...and Woot sold out of them too fast!
Went with the TP Powerline Kit. Hopefully it doesn't fail as it did for the previous wooter. From the review I read, it seemed like a solid device. Really wanted the range extender, but I don't think my issue at home is with range, but the amount of devices trying to access a single wireless point. (4 computers, 2 smart tvs, and numerous smart phones)
Going to see if I can setup a wireless access point via power line for the upstairs part of the house and split the amount of devices on the access points.

High configurable. A console (serial) connection to configure it a GIANT plus.
I am trained on Cisco routers... maybe I am a bit biased...
