Fine For The Money

plainandtall, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: I had been looking for a new router after buying a Smart television. It would make it about 20 minutes into programing, then say I had no internet connection. I was hoping 600 Mbps would be enough. It was not. As long as you don't need to stream HD video on the other side of a large home, you should be fine. Easy set up and such.

Better hope you're in a cooler climate than San Francisco.

  • Summary: The router worked fine for the first few weeks. At some point, I started noticing severe lag when transferring files to and from my Network Attached Storage. I originally thought it was because I had my NAS plugged into my cable modem/gateway directly, which I've had problems with in the past (hence why I got the router), so I plugged the NAS directly into the router. You'd think going through one router from a laptop to an external storage would be fast, right?

Worked OK for 4 months, then not so much

Fly Boy "KC", Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this September 9 2013 to replace an 8 year old Linksys when upgrading to a 1gHz network. Using high speed cable modem. Worked OK for 4 months, then began randomly dropping IP addresses of wired and wireless clients. Three wired and numerous wireless devices. No amount of rebooting or reconfiguring helped. By April 2014 it could not hold IP addresses for longer than 3 hours. PC Mag in January 2014 did not rate this router as an editors choice.

Pray you don't need tech support

P. Roos, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this router and it worked great for about a month. Then one day, it started having problems: my Xbox360 wouldn't stream videos or download games (and it's wired to the gigabit port instead of wireless). The 5GHz band would hang and not load pages. One day it worked great, the next day it didn't.

ok router, very temperamental

Peter "phuiberts", Amazon
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this router to replace the old broken one with a focus on signal strength and shared drive via the USB-port. The setup is OK, it failed over wi-fi and took some work to get it over the LAN, but it works (as an IT'er I can manage). The connections over wi-fi turned stable and the signal strength appears similar to the old Belkin router; no gain no loss.

Unstable Wifi

cableguy "cableguy", Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I thought I would try this since I have been using a DIR-655 for sometime and was happy with it, but wanted dual band. Well, for me, this was not a good choice, at least right now. The main problem I had was getting a stable wireless signal. Streaming video from my home network was total frustration. Every 10 minutes or so, the video would freeze and then start again after 5-30 seconds.

  • Excerpt: В московском сервис-центре сказали, что эта модель не работает с Билайном. Там же сказали, что билайн сейчас постепенно меняет оборудование, этим возможно объясняется тот факт, что тут есть отзывы людей у которых он нормально работает с билайном по L2TP. Однако проверять это на себе не рекомендую.
  • Pros: Возможно, что это на самом деле хороший аппарат, но если у вас НЕ Билайн. Вертикальный дизайн -> занимает меньше места на столе (но на стену повесить нельзя).
  • Cons: 1. Билайн (через L2TP) по проводу 7 Мбит/сек, по WiFi 20 Мбит/сек. При тарифе 30 (комп на прямую реально дает 30). 2. Пробовал 3 или 4 ноутбука. Все по WiFi подключились на скорости чётко 72 Мбит. В сервис-центре сказали, что это нормально. Продемонстрировали два устройства которые подключились к нему на бОльших скоростях. Не помню на каких точно, но оба существенно меньше 300, не говоря уж о 600. Тут можно спорить проблемы это роутера или устройств, но по опыту такой...
