Summary: It worked extremely well for 7mths. I decided to change 2.4ghz wifi channels to eliminate interference from a neighbour. I did several changes monitoring surrounding wifi with the program inSSIDe. Admin control panel freezed.
Summary: All in all I personally think that this is a good router. It should provide a wireless connection up to 1500 sq ft.
Pros: -Downloads Torrent, FTP, and HTTP to an external hard drive via Download Master, -Easy to Configure, -2 USB ports, -Easy to setup a Network attached storage, -Nice glossy design, -Supports gigabit ethernet, -Easy to update and restore, -Custom Firmware available, -True Dual band rotuer
Cons: -It will keep a hard drive spinning as long as it is connected to the USB port even there is no activity., -Download Master does not support magnet links or file hosting websites., -Does not support IPv6, -Not supported by dd-wrt firmwares., -Slow transfer speed on network hard drive connected to...
Summary: I am really surprised on the amount of great reviews this router has on here! If you look in the forum section for this item you'll even see people bashing it as it really has a hard time working.
Pros: Stylish Design, When it works it works really well!
Summary: I have worked in the IT field for more than 25 years including running my own consulting firm for the past eight years. During that time, I have set up countless routers in both commercial and residential settings, using mostly Cisco/Linksys, Netgear and D-Link with a few second tier products like...
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.
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.

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.
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.
