Excerpt: Router seems to be working well but for whatever reason you can't go more than 25 ft away or you lose the signal. Not sure if this is a router issue or an internet service provider issue. I don't know enough about it to know where my real problem is.
Excerpt: I am only able to utilize the 2.4 GHz band because the second band (5 GHz) has a very weak signal. It seems that the 5 GHz is unable to transmit a strong signal through walls. Disappointed with this product as I could have gotten the Netgear 300 for half the price.
Excerpt: Very simple to install. Installation brochure was adequate to set up both desktops with my Ethernet switch. Sporadic connection to internet on computer start-up. Appears not to recognize cable modem initially.Wifi strength goes from excellent to good in very next room (20 feet) with only one device.
Summary: I bought this router locally when my old one finally bit the dust. They didn't have a lot of options, so I went with this one. I assumed it was gigabit capable at this price point, but was wrong (obviously not the router's fault).
Pros: Great build quality reliable, stable plenty of features out of the box
Cons: Not gigabit top gets smudges and fingerprints easily blue WPS light a little annoying costly Not ddwrt capable (at least, not this revision)
