Best router in the market for the price if speed and reliability are important to you

  • Summary: Bought this product almost a year ago. The product is great and the firmware truly gets a lot of upgrades. It's almost like getting a free upgrade to a newer version consider all the features they add.

Easy setup

  • Excerpt: I found the setup easy - the instructions were clear. Product build quality and design/form factor are very good. I think the power on/off button could be make a little larger. The router angle had to be adjusted to cover bedroom and living room area properly.

Great hardware specs, good range, inexpensive

  • Summary: Immediately flashed DD-WRT build 11/11/2014 and it's been rock solid for a month (no reboots). I did turn down the TX power to 40mw (default is 80mw) after reading about gradual signal degradation. Added benefit is it runs cooler. Signal easily covers a 3K sqft house and 1/4 acre lot.

I am not a very technical person so I didn't mess with the other extras like VPN, Guest access etc

  • Summary: Granted, I just received the unit today and just set the network up 1 hr ago, I was still compelled to write an initial review of the router. Let me be honest and tell you that I was out of my mind nervous when I was setting up the unit.

It works very well until I tried to hook up ...

  • Summary: It works very well until I tried to hook up the external hard drive, which caused it to freeze on a regular basis. There is no fix to it other than the reset button and disconnecting the hard drive.

Great..but not for me.

  • Summary: This is a cracking bit of kit. The USB printer port was really handy. Lots of great features. Unfortunately I had to send it back, because I needed to be able to have multiple schedules for allowing computers to connect to different web services (e.g. gaming).

5ghz range could be better.

C. Sinclair, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: It's better than my old BT HomeHub 3. WiFi range on 2.4ghz is great through my small 2 bedroom flat. I understand that 5ghz is faster and range is less. Even though all my decides support 5ghz, some areas of my flat I don't get a very good signal - even though all my internal walls are stud walls.

Hmm, well...

  • Summary: I've owned this model of router for nearly three months, and in that time have found some issues but overall am happy. I can complain about some problems, but many aren't relevant to most but may be to some. Overall though, I am pleased - I can't complain about how it's been for me.
