Summary: You really are better of upgrading any and I mean ANY old firmware to this box if you can. There really is no saving grace to this guy. You are so much better of with ANYTHING ELSE> Even if you are DIRT DIRT DIRT POOR. You are better of spending the money on something that works for more then a day. The hardware is not bad. It's just that the firmware is like BETA stage 0000,00000,0o0000-1 If you try to do any custom stuff on it, it chokes.
Pros: it looks nice. Low power consumption. It can use other firmware. great router for EMERGENCYS . Suddenly, setting up your cisco router from scratch does not seem to be a bad Idea anymore LOL. If you love to power cycle your gear daily, this guys for you.
Cons: You are never going to be mad at another router ever again. When you wonder just how bad a router can be, you will always say, KEEBOX was WORSE> Even compared to some really bad Cisco branded routers, you really have to go far to get this bad. Not only does it just give up the ghost so you can't log into it. It just dies sometimes. You can't log into the console, and it just kind of sucks.
Summary: This is a W150NR V2 NOT V1 and does not work the same. There is no bridge mode and no AP mode. The router knows host names but will not route with them. If this is important to you, look for something else. KEEBOX does not bother to tell the consumer this.
Summary: Bought this router to retire my aging Linksys. This model is pretty decent. Setup was easy and connected with everything. Everything meaning, 3 laptops and HP printer. I have used many other WiFi products and this one tops them all.
Summary: I have purchased a number of home networking products and I believe myself to be pretty technical. This has got to be one of the WORST products ever. Yes it is cheap, but when it does not work, the value is ZERO. Customer support is about as valuable as the product. The User Guide (web) was not even close to the UI that was presented.
Summary: a password protected mode which i beleive is included in the companies inventory at a higher cost a user may not be aware of the neccesity of password protection which i assumed was included in the item
Summary: The price for this router was just right. The shipping was before time and the customer service was great at the store. Once I got the keebox home I had to call costumer service for the installation. This took an hour and a half, I had to plug and unplug the unit 25 times or more. The man on the other end of the phone was reading from a book and that took forever as well.
