Summary: In less than 2 years, it has bricked itself 5 times. 3 of these times have been when using the company's own Genie tools to either reboot or update my firmware. The other two were from short duration power spikes...small enough that I've never had any other router just completely die from them.
Pros: When it works, it is fast and the connection is very reliable. I've never had a better router when it is up.
Cons: Bricks itself if you look at it funny. Seriously, I've never had a router corrupt its firmware so many times. Not even with all my previous routers combined.
Summary: I think some of the problems could be related to heat. I had installed a 40mm fan inside the router (when I noticed it was getting rather warm) to draw air onto the CPU and that seemed to slow down the frequency of internet connection drops from 1-3 times a day to 3-5 times a week.
Pros: This is a very fast and powerful consumer/home router. And when it worked it gave great performance, having a supped up NAS on hand I was able to peak my LAN loads to the 1Gbps limits on several machines.
Cons: I have had this thing for almost a year (probably on-line and operational for about 310-320 days), and it has failed. The LAN and WLAN network portion of this router is still functional, but it does not seem to recognized or communicate with anything that is plugged into the “internet” port. Over...
Summary: I bought this router because the price was high and I thought it would live up to the price. I was wrong. The range for this router was so ridiculous. It was almost same as N300 routers that go for 40 bucks.
Summary: I've had this router for a couple years now, so it is out of warranty. It did the same thing while it was under warranty, but I just let it slide because I was able to fix it.
Pros: Fast. Relatively easy to set up.
Cons: Router design is flawed horribly. The power at my house goes out pretty often. About half the time, the router bricks. The green globe flashes which indicates corrupted firmware. Then, if you don't have a lot of tech ability, you're in trouble. You have to manually force a new copy of the firmwar...
Summary: I bought this router to provide a bigger and more reliable Wi-Fi network for my home, since I work from home. There are some nice features and generally works okay. I am carefully selecting that work ("okay"), because it doesn't work as expected.
Pros: I had just purchased the EA6350 but was not getting any range from it, not counting the issues with having to reboot it. After installing a Netgear AC1750 for a friend and seeing the range they got, I decided to purchase one and try it out… couple of months later with no regrets. It is stable and...
