Summary: Had to replace my relatively new (one year old) Cisco (Linksys) router after it kept losing the connection and having to do a hard boot on the router every day. Decided to upgrade to the 900 dual band router to compete for bandwidth with my gamer son! I've been quite satisfied on it's performance thus far. Not locks, lag time, buffering, etc. when I watch Netflix through my wireless Blu-ray on TV. It is an outstanding router, and I will never use all of it's features.
Great router for the money I couldn&apos;t beat it.

Summary: I bought this router to replace my older dlink dir-655. What I like about this router is that it has a much further reach than my older dlink and the added band allows for faster video processing when watching Netflix and Hulu. No more interruptions just smooth streaming. How this one compares to others out there... It ranks amongst the top 5 routers currently to include the newer AC1750's that are out now.
Don't like this router, going to get rid of it and go back to Linksys

Summary: Hard to set up, keeps dropping the signal on the 2.4 ghz band. Have to reboot the router to get it working again. This happens several times a week. Tech support was not able to cure the problem. Read a review on Cnet that recommended it but it has not lived up to their recommendation.
Pros: Streaming video like Netflix seems to work well and I can still use two additional computers at the same time, most of the time, but of course they are slow.
Cons: Streaming video works well through wired connection while using one computer on the 5ghz channel and one on the 2.5ghz channel. Then the low frequency channel just drops out and I have to reboot the router to get it connected. Happens often.
Summary: Paid $100 with free shipping for a manufacturer refurbished unit. For home use this router is excellent. Range is superior, antenna power dialed down to low and still have wi-fi from the street curb. Hardware and software are easy to install. Only two drawbacks - the WPS function is hard to configure, actually easier doing the traditional manual syncing and lastly there are a lot of features to this router and you will have to read the manual to navigate through the...
Cons: Latestfirmware. Media server 500gb max of content avail to LED SmartTv's/Sony Hulu box. Using 3tb Seagate USB3.0 ext hdd. SharePort-horribly organizes files into one list. Doesn't see folders and figure out organizational structures.Vids,Music,Pics
Summary: We are a very heavy internet using family. 3 XBOXes, Netflix streaming, plus our smartphones, regular internet browsing and Ooma Telo VOIP. I also have a wireless N print server (Zonet ZPW4000)that's very finicky about the router it connects...
"stable, USB 3.0 is Fast!, dual bands work well together"

Pros: *rock stable for 9 connected devices in home network *both 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz work well with excellent speed and balance *USB 3.0 is FAST! *IPV6 ready *extensive menus and configuration options *HDTV movies streamed with glitches
Cons: *onboard clock is glitchy (without NTP server enabled) *every change requested a router re-boot, taking 60sec minimum. *5.0GHz range not quite as good as 2.4GHz range *a little pricey (>$200)
