Perfect for the mulit-wireless user home

  • 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'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.

  • 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...

City-, CNET
2 April 2012
  • Pros: *Gave me a speed increase (8Mbs to be precise) *Constant speeds with no ups or downs *Great range on the 2.4Ghz *5GHz network runs very efficiently (Especially for those who live around a large network)
  • Cons: *Price is a bit steep ($200 CAD retail) *5GHz range doesn't quite reach as far as 2.4GHz *A mandatory installation to setup the router might take a long time, or even frustrate you.

  • Summary: Belangrijke punten voor mij zijn: - Bereik wifi: Uitstekend, mede dankzij de 2.4ghz en 5ghz netwerk en dit zonder antennes. - Goede media router: Perfect, mijn vorige router was een stuk minder op dit vlak. Streamen zelf draadloos is een droom - Easy install: duidelijk een JA - Degelijk bouw en design: De router ziet er fraai uit. Verstoppen hoeft dus zeker niet. Ook stevige bouw Ik kan deze router aan iedereen aanraden.
  • Pros: Easy installatie, Draadloos heeft zeer goed bereik, Uitstekend als media router
  • Cons: beetje langs de dure kant, maar de moeite waard, Wordt langs de onderkant nogal warm
