1 word: CRAPPY (since I can't say what I REALLY have to say about it)

mzoilz405, Ebay
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this piece of crap so I could use a ROKU on my TV. The packaging, instruction pamphlet & router do not have any company contact information anywhere. Somehow my internet provider was able to find a phone# for me to call them & set up a PW for my wireless network and I spoke to someone who helped me. It worked fine for the first few days but then the router started picking up the wrong IP address.

Follow up after 2 years

Chip M., Newegg
19 December 2012
  • Pros: My initial review was posted here 1/17/2011 9:35:18 PM, which you can scroll down and read, and my comments from that review still stand after all this time. In all that time I've had ZERO problems with this router and it continues to be in use today. This was literally a set it up and forget it item, and it has served me very well these last couple of years. I have literally not touched this router since January 2011, I would say I got my purchase price out of it... ...
  • Cons: Cons? Setting it up again. I've long misplaced all documentation for it at this point, and setting it up from scratch again would indeed be a bit of a nightmare.

Stopped working

Michael F., Newegg
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Seems like the IP stack in this piece of junk just can't deal with life.
  • Pros: Worked well for a while, full of features.
  • Cons: Touchy. When the internet went down, this thing started flashing it's orange WAN light. The internet was restored, but the danmed light keeps blinking. I tried resetting to factory defaults, still flashing. I replaced with another router, on-line in a heartbeat. I went back to the Level One router, bounced the modem, but the flashing wan returned. The router's release/renew doesn't do anything.

Solid little router

Martin W., Newegg
5 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this 6/15/2011 to replace the Netgear router at my home. The Netgear was frequently dropping WiFi every other day so I found this WBR-6002 for less than $20 on NewEgg. Honestly it has never dropped signal and I always have at least 8 wireless devices (3 laptops, iMac, Epson Workforce 635, Dell desktop, Palm Pre+, iPad, iPod). My internet DSL modem is the cheapie Embarq 660 series and I live in rural Indiana so we're lucky to get 3mb DSL speeds.
  • Pros: Solid WiFi, no drops in a year Router is on 2nd floor, strong signals to basement and out to garage Easy to set up, but I prefer manual settings so I can't really comment on WPS, except I did use it with the Epson printer with no problems
  • Cons: Bright blue LEDs, pretty but intensely bright (I have to cover them at night as they light up the bedroom) Plastic, but c'mon it was $20

Affordable alternative

STEVEN D., Newegg
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Can't expect much more out of 20 bucks, but it works pretty well.
  • Pros: *Easy set-up. Can just set-up and forget about the more in-depth functions more advanced and pricier routers have. *Decent speeds
  • Cons: *The signal can drop a bit from outside the room you set it in.

nice but does not last

Adam S., Newegg
17 October 2011
  • Summary: with some longevity this would be a highly recommended product.
  • Pros: cool easy router
  • Cons: does not last very long. bought three of these for home, business and rental property and they all died after 3 months. It began with the network loosing the WAN (unplugging the router for a few seconds would solved this for a while) each lost the internet more and more often till they were finally not functioning.
