decent stable router with medium range and USB for under 100$
21 September 2014
Summary: If you want to use a USB storage device as a samba share or ftp or network drive the transfer rates are really slow and the Wifi range is not great at all says 300mbs even next to the device 130 is the best pull i got.
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: So far, I'm most happy about the devices ability to handle P2P traffic while surfing the internet. With several P2P files going, my old WRT 610N would grind to a crawl. The RT-N56U seems to not notice, at least I don't notice. The QoS has been set to prioritize my Web traffic.
Pros: Throughput seems very good. Set up was not difficult., EzQoS works well and was EZ to setup.
Cons: Can't steath port 21, only close it., UI is clunky and not very user friendly
Summary: Had some problems setting it up to connect to my provider who has a pppoe connection (user/pass type). Physically connecting the cable would work but enabling WiFi wouldn't . even though the user/pass was right it threw some authentication errors.
Summary: I purchased this router as my current Sky box was having issues maintaining its ADSL connection and multiple wired and wireless clients. This is a great looking router and wouldn't look out of place in any setting.
Excerpt: The name of this router is a diamond wireless router. So far it has exceeded my expectations and is highly recommended. This is a simple plug and play device that allowed me to connect to the Internet with the minimum of set up. This is a router that I purchased from Amazon.co.uk for £112.
Pros: good performance and much better than my Belkin wireless router, nice dual connection settings
