This Model WR1200 was pretty simple to hook up I instead installed it by mobile phone first after connecting to modem without going to webpage was a challenge but was able to hook up. The second time was going to webpage making the proper name of network and security and IP address were correct and now it's working has been even first time hook up. Hint you should if possible upgrade to 3.1 Docsis but the lastest 3.0 will work 24x8 or 32x8 the 16x4 minimum anything below wasting time and money. Also check your service provider with modem compatibility with service majority modems due Cox, infinity, Comcast etc. This product is a good product for the price is a option for budgeted mined. The Only negative the durability structure if dropped hard or object falls on it depending weight or object and distance dropped possibly damaging it treat with care I gave ⭐⭐⭐⭐ for that reason only ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ product operations Hook up simple.
