Unreliable WiFi. Inadequate customer support.

Anonymous, Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Pros: Great range...when I can connect
  • Cons: I've had my Engenius ESR350 WiFi Router for a few months now and I experience intermittent disruptions to my WiFi service. Distance from the router doesn't seem to make a difference in failure frequency. Under normal circumstances, I get a decent signal (Quality=63/70 Signal level=-47 dBm), so th...

Works fine until it doesn't

Paul F., Newegg

  • Summary: I set up some other Engenius equipment to wirelessly network an acquaintance's compound and in less than a year the Engenius routers failed.
  • Pros: good power, distance, easy setup.
  • Cons: This router is only 1.5 years old and now is requiring a hard reset every day or so, sometimes more often. I have been unable to contact Engenius tech support.

usb networking is a joke

Brian L., Newegg
22 April 2014
  • Summary: buy this if you need a router. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM FOR USB HARD DISK NETWORKING. SPEEDS ARE LESS THAN 900KB/SEC. A SIMPLE 20 GB BACKUP WOULD REQUIRE OVERNIGHT TRANSFER TIME.
  • Pros: fine as just a router. allows a guest ssid - thats cool.
  • Cons: This item advertises USB network storage ability. Transfer speeds are less than 900kb/second. This makes it a useless feature. You can not run a network backup of even a few gigabytes at this transfer speed. I opened a support ticket and they do the standard runaround. I asked what speeds they se...

Worth it

F1 I., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: Aside from the VPN issue, it would not stop me from buying another one of these. The circle shape and white chassis arent really an issue if you end up hiding the unit or keeping it out of sight somewhere. Reason I took an egg off was due to the VPN function.
  • Pros: Fast CPU, good amount of memory, strong Wi-Fi chipset. runs cool. Gigabit. TONS of features and configuration options. Great tech support in the rare case that you need it.
  • Cons: circle shape, white chassis. VPN function has an issue in the firmware which the EnGenius support team has been made aware of. No link lights on the front with the other LED's.

User Review

Nicholas T., Newegg

  • Summary: This router gets the job done for cheap, if that's what you need then it's perfect. If you want more features or faster speeds you'll need to spend a bit more on a different router to get them.
  • Pros: Works as advertised, a solid choice for an entry level router. If you just want to connect a few devices and don't care about a bunch of extra features this will work just fine. Simple design, easy to set up and use. Good price.
  • Cons: The Web UI is a bit clunky and seems to be geared towards beginners... Not dual band, but you'd need to spend a bit more to get out of entry level to get a dual band router.

Works, for What It Is.

KinoChelovek, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: This is the second of 3 routers that I have purchased, and still the one I use. It is okay, but tends to lock-up the internet signal, making it annoying to have to keep going up to the 'signal icon' on my computer to check connection.

A+ Support, B- Product

Alex D., Newegg
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Had this router for a little over 3 months without issue. The other day UPnP functionality stopped. After much fussing around in the web interface, I touched the router and noticed it was running a little hot- no surprise as all the vents are on the bottom.
  • Pros: - Decent WiFi signal - Gigabit Ethernet - Outstanding customer support - Looks like a smoke detector?
  • Cons: - No vents on top - Runs a little warm, though I'm told this is not an issue (see below) - Minor gripes: No access to hosts file in WebUI, Streaming from USB 2.0 port is very laggy and not worth it, no DD-WRT support (not EnGenius's fault)

nice little router

Peter P., Newegg
16 November 2013
  • Summary: so far its been excellent
  • Pros: its small and interesting looking, kinda like a little flying saucer, wireless works very well at least at close ranges, gig wired connection is a huge improvement, downloads are twice as fast and it finally feels like having cable internet is worth it, easy to set up
  • Cons: pink stripe is ridiculous, Im a guy and every guy that sees my router comment on the pink, or girly , or you can imagine thing on my shelf, of course then they notice thier wireless connection speeds and stop complaining, sharpie is gonna fix that lol
