Yeah I think we had ours for only a few years. I remember it being a complete pain in the ass to set up, though partially because of my wireless card too.
Anyway mom bought one while she was at the store today, which I'm a bit disgruntled about because I wanted to have the chance to look them up first and see the general consensus about them before actually buying one. She ended up with the Linksys E900, which I'm sure was due to the $39 Walmart price tag. Mom's one of those that likes to buy the cheapest option available, even if cheapest sometimes means shoddy and low quality. I'm looking around now to see how reviews are for it before I install it, but gd it aggravates me to hell when she just buys electronic shit without doing any damn research.
Edit; Welp, all of our devices like my ipod and mom's kindle connect just fine to the router. So I went to go try and connect my computer, and while it says it's connected to the network, I don't actually have any connection. Can't say I'm surprised, considering all of the internet troubles I'm always having.
