The blue ZSR0104CP from Zonet comes with 2MB of system RAM and 512 kB of flash memory, one of the lightest memory configurations tested. Despite this, it squeezes the second-highest upload and download speeds from its Marvell 88E6218 processor and also offers a decent amount of features, making it a solid choice for a budget router.

The control panel has one of the better-looking UIs of the reviewed routers, though its rounded pseudo-aqua aesthetic does look slightly off when coupled with blocky Windows buttons (demonstrated by the interface screenshot). It provides an overview of the WAN/LAN traffic statistics, and can automatically set the time based on a specifiable NTP server.
A help feature is available for some of the administrative functions that relies on popup windows, which requires pop-up blocking to be disabled in browsers that support it. Router settings cannot be saved or restored using this panel, however, so the router must be power-cycled in order to return it to its default settings.
