Summary: I dunno, maybe I got lucky. Bought it to flash to 3rd party firmware, but stock firmware was intuitive and easy to configure and I've had excellent stability with mine. It's been up since July 2013, I've had to reboot it maybe 5-6 times since I first plugged it in.
Summary: Using this as an inexpensive bridge for non-WiFi Ethernet-ready devices. dd-wrt tutorials are all over the web and it took me about an hour to find the right firmware files and work through the procedure. I now have a rock solid connection to my TiVo HD.
Summary: This router has some bad reviews but I can't understand why.... I can receive a great signal (4 out of 5) bars when upstairs which is around 25 metres away and also outside when sitting in the car in the car park.
Powerful router packed with features with a very competitive price
15 November 2013
Summary: Had three features that I had been looking for in a router to replace my aging WRT-54GL: +Gigabit ethernet +Simultaneous dual band 802.11n +DD-WRT/Tomato support. 2x USB slots is a bonus All of the other routers with these features cost 2x or more than what I paid for this.
Great router IF you install either Tomato or DD-WRT firmware
26 October 2013
Summary: I bought mine from DirectDeals4U and got a sealed, new router delivered a few days later. I never even tried to use it with the firmware that comes installed but immediately installed dd-wrt and then tomato. The instructions are out there - just google "tomato F7D7301".
Summary: First of all, I wanted to mention that I have dealt with BlueProton and Web's Best Deals. I would not purchase from BlueProton again because they charge a restocking fee and did not give me my refund automatically. Web's Best Deals had the lower price and better return policy so I bought from them.
