  • Summary: I purchased this unit and a Motorolla SB6141 to replace my Comcast all-in-one Router/Modem combo. Haven't had any connection issues so far, I use it primarily to connect my smart TV to my Plex server.

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.

A+ Support, B- Product

  • 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)

Don't Judge a Router by it's Color...

  • Summary: All in all, this is a nice router and for the price point it really can’t be beat. It has a few slight annoyances, but nothing I would consider a deal breaker. The biggest flaw is the limitation imposed by their USB sharing functionality.
  • Pros: When I first took at a look at the box, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. A round, pink router, that looked like something crashed outside of Area 51. But after a little seat time with the E350, I walked away quite impressed. The first thing I noticed was the ability to connect to the router usin...
  • Cons: As others have pointed out, I was unable to stream any files of appreciable size which limited media streaming. You can do music and pictures, but video is pretty much out of the question. I found this aspect pretty disappointing. (I deducted 1 Egg for this limitation) The wireless broadcast powe...

No major issues. Respectable range.

  • Summary: While the physical look of this router goes against anything I would expect a router to look like, I am trying to get used to this new look. Hiding antennas into a body of a router certainly makes it less vulnerable to physical damage.
  • Pros: Smart enough to automatically set itself as an Wireless Access Point once connected to another router/device that provides DHCP. Meaning, if you want to extend range of your wireless network, you can just connect this device to an existing router, and everything will work without any setup. Type ...
  • Cons: USB file sharing is limited to files less than 500 MB in size and maximum of 20 users. This is really puzzling to me. Why limit the size of files to 500 MB? This limitation is not mentioned anywhere in the documentation, therefore I am deducting one egg for this omission of important fact. You ca...

  • Summary: If you specifically need the features this router offers, it does work and once you get it set up it does what it's supposed to do. It is pretty weird looking for a router, don't really think that's a con though.
  • Pros: Works like you'd expect, and has a decent range. Seems packed with extra features such as IP Cam Viewer (if you own a EnGenius IP Cam), and Storage Sharing which lets you share the contents of a drive connected to the router via USB. The Web UI is fairly responsive, however it has some issues...
  • Cons: The Web UI is a bit clunky and seems to be geared towards beginners... the choices for security are "High", "Medium", and "None". As someone a bit more technically oriented I'd like a little more details. There's also numerous spelling errors and other mistakes. The UI navigation in general is pr...

ENGENIUS TECHNOLOGIES ESR-350 TO POD OR NOT TO POD

Michael R., Newegg
18 August 2013
  • Summary: When I was offered this EnGenius router to test and evaluate, I was more than happy to do so as I wanted to evaluate their claims of "high" power and ease of use. Yes, it is easy to use and setup , and it is clearly geared for the beginning network in this respect.
  • Pros: Has four true gigabyte ports. Can do four Guest SSID's with options. AP and WDS modes with port forwarding, guest networks, QOS, and an easy setup for non-experienced networkers.WPA/WPA2 wireless encryption and SPI firewall. USB port for data sharing using the EnGenius Enshare feature. Wireless a...
  • Cons: Not a dual band router, is only 2.4Ghz. NO DD-WRT support so you are stuck with the installed firmware. Unusual shape means it will take up a lot more desk space than you may be accustomed to. I found it best to wall mount it for my use and mounting hardware is included in the package. Power cord...

  • Summary: I use this to connect to a Rosewill RNX-N150HG usb adapter that is over 4 tenths of a mile away (~2200 ft). I use 2 8dbi omni-directional antennas; one on the router and one on the usb adapter. My connection speeds range from 90 - 150 Mbits/Sec. The usb adapter's max speed is 150 Mbits/Sec.
  • Pros: Great range. Acceptable setup. No problems with disconnects.
  • Cons: Security isn't as good as it could be. Took away 1 star because of security. Only allows short admin passwords. Can't disable login over wireless connection. No MAC filtering.
