Demands that you use Chrome...

Jack, Staples
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Demands that you use Chrome as a browser, will not work with IE11! Very difficult to set up, and seems to crash every 24 hours. I've had to unplug it and restart it, every morning to gain internet access again. Port Forwarding seems to be flaky, works for a few hours, than stops. Range is mediocre, does not have near the range as my old cheap NetGear router. I will return it, or toss it, and buy a better NetGear than I had before.

Some problems

Ralz, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this for over a month now and have had a few problems, possible due to the user but I doubt it. The wifi seems to lag at times when it shouldn't. It is not my internet as the Ethernet connections work fine. The 2 different networks are cool but the 2.4ghz works poorly. The 5ghz works fine it seems but isn't much faster then my old wifi. With the various lag connections on the wifi I would recommend a cheaper netgear over this model.

Instructions are terrible !

make it clear, Staples
20 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The sales person recommended this item as being fine for my needs and being extreamly easy to hook up and set up. I'm sure it will meet my needs fine, based on my use but for me it was far from simple to hook up and set up.The instructions were childish and left out many of the steps that someone with even some knowledge would need to connect it.
  • Pros: Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Not Secure

I loved for 2 days,then things went down hill... :(

AgentAA1, CNET
12 March 2013
  • Summary: I have a Verizon FiOS with a promised 50/25 Mbps [down/upload]. I got tired of the crapy Actiontec router that we were given for free, since the Maximum speeds I got was 24/19 Mbps. I found this router at sams club and it looked promising, and the Cnet report made me think it was a great deal. Set up took some time b/c I realized that I had to release my DHCP to add a new 3rd party router.
  • Pros: Looks, features, price (I got it for $150 at Sams club)
  • Cons: Speed issues after 2 days of use, heats up a little
