Works fine until it doesn't. Your mileage may vary.

David Worlitz, Amazon
24 June 2015
  • Summary: Purchased in August 2012 and had worked fine up until yesterday. All the front LEDs were flashing in sync and any wired or wireless devices could not connect. The stock interface was full of detailed settings and easy to use. This model was also compatible with DD-WRT which made it even better.

  • Summary: Update: Router failed completely after two days! The original firmware is not great. Gargoyle installed seems to help. Connection seems fast and stable. The only issue I see is netstat is slow to respond in terminal when SSH'd in.

  • Summary: <Update> Just to share this information with whoever run into similar situation. After I noticed the ethernet port of my router died, I tried to power cycle it, press the reset button etc, and any of these trick worked. So I disconnected the power supply and let it sit there for one day.
