Summary: I bought this router in 2010. It worked very well for the first year, providing great WiFi on both bands. As 2011 progressed, the 5GHz band became increasingly flaky, often failing to connect unless I hard-rebooted the router pretty regularly, then died entirely. And in 2012 the 2.4GHz band is starting to fail in the same way. Considering how inexpensive the router is, I can't call it a ripoff. But now I have to buy a replacement, and it won't be one of these.
Summary: What an excellent router! I've had it for a month, without ever thinking of it. Given that I live in a downtown Vancouver high-rise, with 100+ wireless networks showing up in wireless networks list, this router is a wonder. I've had lots of problems with intermittent connections with single-band routers, probably because the airspace is just too crowded. This one has never given me any problems. Set up is a no-brainer, either.
Summary: I brought this router on April, and just switched the ISP from cable to DSL last night so I may help someone out there who wanna buy a dual-band router. My original target is either Cisco or Trendnet. At that time only Cisco rolled out the 3000 which cost 2.5 times more (ESR 7750 cost 60 at that time), and there was nothing from Trendnet. The range is OK but since there is no external antenna for this router don't expect it will be great.
Summary: After a few years with open-source-based ([...]) Wireless-G WiFi routers, it was time to check out the Wireless-N situation. The open-source that I know hasn't yet caught up to Wireless-N yet so off to off-the-shelf it was for me. After deliberating among the big names like Linksys, Netgear and D-Link, and having had both troubles with each in the past as part of my home-consulting business, and also reading some unfavorable reviews both at Amazon and other vendors, I...
Summary: I bought this router as an upgrade from my Linksys WRT54GL. Setup was easy. I just moved the cables from the Linksys to the EnGenius. I added a network camera, set up port forwarding and it worked great. My network printer which is connected to the router via a CAT5e cable did not work until I reinstalled the printer software on our computers. For several days everything worked fine but then we couldn't print over the network printer.
Summary: Works very well and doesn't drop out/freeze up. Setup was a bit confusing and Ive set up a few routers for my self and friends. If you don't have one currently installed on your system it might be easier oddly enough. works considerably better than my netgear 614 that it replaced handles the house holds 4 computers with ease. We used to have to pull the power cord on the old one 2 or 3 times a day and it would even slow down on my desktop that is hard wired in.
Summary: I bought this to provide wi-fi to my new Vizio tv with apps. Never have set up a wifi before so that was a problem. I am still having intermittant problems with the connection but when I cann Vizio they say it's the router, when I call EnGenious they say it the tv. Both customer service's helped to a point but in the end blamed each other. I am sure that a good part of the problem is that I don't know what the %$#% i'm doing.
Summary: I purchased this wireless router in my first attempt to set up a wireless home network. This nifty little router made it a snap. The written instructions are a little hard to follow because they were obviously written by someone for whom English is a second language. However, that wasn't a problem because this router almost sets itself up. I can move my laptop anywhere in my 1800 sq.ft. space and get excellent reception.
