  • Summary: The 5ghz doesn't cover the whole house, so when I watch Trump yapping away talking nonsense during the debates, it stops and I am saved for a few minutes.

  • Summary: I have worked in the IT field for more than 25 years including running my own consulting firm for the past eight years.

Glitchy

  • Summary: I purchased the router to be able to manage a pair of seagate 2 TB back-up drives. It took a while to figure out that I had to re-initialize the drives as "MBR" (rather than the default initialization they came with), then format them as NTFS. This is a valuable insight.

Died after 2 years

  • Summary: I used this router for about two years. When it worked, it worked well. When new, I had a problem where the router kept resetting itself when our Nexus 4 connected to it, causing all other clients on the network connected to it (which was a pita to track down).

Works, but horrible interface if you need to troubleshoot. May as well be a dumb device just about.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Works, routes, shares a hard drive fine. If you're having any issues on your network though, it's interface is horrid. It usually shows one or two devices connected rather than the 6 I have (some on a switch off of it), no easy way to see what wireless devices are connected.

Great when it works but same issues as others

Jon, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: When it works it is awesome. Two kids streaming Netflix, one playing online games and I don't notice any drops in speed. However even when there is minimal demand on the router it will lock up and Internet speeds slow down to a crawl. This happens at least every 3 days but usually it is daily.
